The cherubs descended upon seeing Gillel's crimson wings. He presumptuously praised the gods, thinking they would return his original wings of white to him. However, the ones they bore were pitch black, a sign of the gods' disapproval. Gillel accepted them, yet in his pride, assumed the gods were biased. He believed it necessary to teach them the error in their judgment, through force.

Gillel is probably a misspelled variant of Hebrew masculine name Hillel, derived from halal meaning "praise". The names Hilel, Hilell, Hillell, Hylel, Hylell, Hyllel, and Hyllell are variant forms of Hillel.
