According to a Rabbinic tradition, the chief of the orders (Irin and Kadishim) "was made of hail, and he was so tall, it would take 500 years to walk the distance to his height." This makes little sense considering both the Irin and Kadishim are each sets of identical twins, unless they all fit this description.
