The Grigori – were a group of angels sent down to earth to guide mankind. But the difference between being down here versus being back Home was more than anyone understood at the time. Especially time differences. So the Grigori felt cut off from Home, and those back Home had no understanding of why they’d have issues (“stay down there and do your job, it’s been merely a moment!” “It’s been a hundred years which is a long time for us down here!”, etc.). Some of the Grigori fell in love with the humans they were guiding, and bred Nephilim. Later when the Grigori decided that if Heaven wouldn’t listen to them, screw that… some amongst them bred Nephilim deliberately as an army to fight the Host if it came to that. Which led to the Grigori being cast out (the entire group, regardless of individual action), and the Nephilim being wiped out.
Some accounts (various UPGs) of the Nephilim don’t paint a very rosy picture – as many were not ‘stable’… part angel, part man and unable to naturally stabilized the spirit part while in the physical without the constant effort of will of their angelic progenitors. Descriptions included some that were literally falling apart. Others were more stable, and some may have learned to stabilize themselves.
They are also referred to as ‘The Watchers’.
They are pretty much the focus of the Book of Enoch, a text that the Catholic Church rejected when they decided that angels could never have walked alongside men, let alone be tempted to lay with one. This was (I believe) during a period of time when the church wanted less focus on saints and angels, and more focus on God in order to cull paganism’s creeping into their own rituals etc. It is therefore considered an ‘apocryphal’ work.
