Angelene (アンジェレネ Anjerene?, Yen Press: Angeline) is a Roman Catholic Church nun who is a member of the paramilitary force known as Agnese Forces, which is led by her friend Agnese Sanctis. A girl with an equally troubled past just like her friends, she is hardworking and loyal despite her timidity. She is first introduced in Toaru Majutsu no Index as a bumbling yet formidable partner of the vicious Lucia, but later reforms and joins Necessarius, and is a representative of Roman Catholicism in England.
After the war, with better relations between the Churches and after much effort by the Agnese Forces, the group later returns to the authority of the Roman Catholic Church.

Appearance[edit | edit source]
She is a small young girl, coupled with her timid nature and tendency to bow enhances her small stature. She has freckles on her face and has long honey-colored hair tied in twin braids.
Angelene is often seen wearing her nun habit, which are loose and doesn't fit her stature, as such her hands and feet are often covered by the garments. Angelene most notably wears a metallic waist belt where she keeps her coin bags in containers attached to the belt. Her real age is unknown, but since she seems younger than Agnese, who in turn seems to be a year or two younger than Index.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Angelene describes herself as someone who does not act according to her beliefs, and maybe referring to her emotions. She seems to be quite timid in contrast to her partner. She often slouches or has her arms up near her body, like in a defensive position. Moreover, more willful characters such as Lucia, can easily convince her in doing things even though she is in doubt, such as when Lucia convinced her to attack Kamijou Touma after he touched her.
As she looks like a child, she also has a personality of that a child. She can get teary eyed and can trust people easily, as evidenced during Touma and Orsola Aquinas rescuing her and Lucia. She has a sweet tooth for various desserts and sweet drinks, her favorite being the hot butter cocoa chocolate. This preference to childish or mundane things, often causes Lucia to scold her for not being serious, in either regarding God and religion or an important mission, such as when she scolded her for becoming too preoccupied with what the food they will be eating when they were younger, as well as the food they were going to eat when they were served by the Amakusa-Style Remix of Church. Moreover, in regards to eating, she is apparently as gluttonous as Index, and does not like it when food is taken from her plate, as what happened when Index begin stealing food from her plate.
When an argument goes out of hand, Angelene will always try to stop it with an event that draws much more attention that whatever caused the argument in the first place, such as Angelene flipping Lucia's skirt to get the best the of the audience, which is apparently a habit of hers. Her childish and often bumbling personality, and the fact that she is still a nun-in-training, maybe the reason why Lucia is protective of her and oversees everything she does, such as worrying about her work as her long clothes may get in the way, or giving her vegetables to eat. Similarly, Angelene often tugs or grabs hold of Lucia's garments as if she was like a mother. Still as a child, she is envious of big breasts, like Orsola and Lucia, and would rather not have someone who has considerable bust size such as Lucia, to tell her that she doesn't need it.
Angelene is faithful to her beliefs, though not to the same extremes as Lucia and Agnese. And with regards to more mundane behavior befitting of a nun, such as proper etiquette during dinner, work ethic, and among other things, she is continually corrected by Lucia, as she has a habit of doing things appropriately. Although, this can be explained that she is still a nun-in-training. However, despite this and her childish nature, she can become serious when needs to, but can also show compassion for enemies, like when she worried of the weight of her coinbags that she will be using.
She admires Agnese Sanctis, and tries to follow her orders to the letter, such as when Lucia tries to attack Touma and Index despite Agnese's orders. Furthermore, like Lucia, she will go to great lengths for her, such as rescuing her even with grim odds, or going to the thick of battle despite her fears.
Unlike Agnese and Lucia, transferring to Necessarius does affect her personality much.
Background[edit | edit source]
Not much is known about Angelene's past. What is known is that Angelene came from France, though it is unknown if she was born there or is French herself. She and her parents then moved to Milan, though she was shortly abandoned afterwards. She is later taken into the care of the Roman Catholic Church, where she meets Lucia and Agnese Sanctis, and became close friends. It is hinted that the novice nun that forgot her specialty, Angelene is referring to, regarding the olives that she and her ilk has been eating for the past three days during their childhood is Orsola Aquinas, though this is unconfirmed.
Angelene later becomes a nun-in-training, under Agnese Sanctis, who has formed Agnese Forces through unknown means.

Orsola Aquinas Rescue Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Orsola Aquinas Rescue Arc
She first appears alongside Lucia when Touma hears Lucia scolding Angelene. She's later shown when the pair is ready to take in Tatemiya Saiji for punishment. But Touma enrages her partner, Lucia, by touching her shoulder and brutally attacking him. Angelene tries to calm her partner down but Lucia orders her to attack and distract Index. But Index uses Spell Intercept on Angelene's magic and stops the two from harming him. Upon hearing the retreat signal they flee the area.
Later, Angelene appears to be one of the chosen few assigned to protect Agnese Sanctis, however, she becomes anxious after the prolonged battle with the Amakusa-Style Remix of Church, and asks Agnese for her and the other nuns with her to join the battle, to which Agnese allows. She is later captured after the defeat of Agnese Sanctis at the hands of Kamijou Touma.
La Regina del Mare Adriatico Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: La Regina del Mare Adriatico
She and the rest of the Agnese forces are later taken to the Queen's Fleet of La Regina del Mare Adriatico as a labor force, with her and Lucia forced to wear the Forbidden colored robe to limit their magic use and prevent escape. However, she and Lucia try to escape after finding a way to suppress their garments, and try to find a way to break out the rest of their comrades, most importantly Agnese since she will be used as a sacrifice for the Rosary of the Appointed Time, however, both of them are later recaptured..
Kamijou Touma and Orsola Aquinas later rescue them under the instructions of Agnese Sanctis. After some much convincing, Angelene and Lucia show them how they can escape. Angelene later asks when they will meet up with Agnese again, to which Touma reveals that she may not be joining them, she and Lucia later reveals to them Agnese is going to be used as sacrifice for the Roman Catholic's spell, at which point they are attacked by the rest of the Queen's Fleet, when Touma and Orsola are discovered there. They are later rescued by the Amakusa in their wooden submersible vessel. During Touma's unconsciousness, his right hand apparently negated the effects of the Forbidden colored robe, freeing Angelene and Lucia from its spell, but at the cost of destroying and disrobing them. This fact is not viewed lightly by Index, who berates and bites Touma for it despite being an accident, here, as a ruckus forms around them, Angelene tries to regain some semblance of order by flipping Lucia's skirt out of habit, much to her embarrassment, though, it does work.
She and Lucia, later gather around a meal-meeting with Touma, Orsola, Index, along with the Amakusa, to discuss the true nature of the La Regina del Mare Adriatico as well as their plans on how to approach it. Saiji tells of the foreboding odds against them, to which Angelene and Lucia show their determination to rescue Agnese no matter what. Regardless, even after Touma's convincing, Saiji shows that he was just making sure if his comrades are ready, and has already prepared a plan for the assault. Later, Lucia tells Angelene not to worry of the weight of her coinbags, despite them attacking their comrades.
With the help of Amakusa, Angelene and Lucia are able to mount an offensive against the Queen's Fleet, though they are forced to fight their comrades, while Touma, Index and Orsola find a way to stop the activation of La Regina del Mare Adriatico and save Agnese. Angelene later goes down after trying to save one of her comrades, and is forced to watch the battle in the sidelines after being comforted by Lucia.
Academy City Invasion Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Academy City Invasion Arc
Despite being a member of Necessarius, the 0th Parish of the Anglican Church, Angelene and the rest of the Agnese forces remain follow the tenets of Roman Catholicism but is not controlled by the Vatican. Here, in London, Agnese forms a Roman Catholic branch, and makes herself and her forces the representative of Roman Catholicism in England.
She appears with the other ladies of Necessarius at the Anglican Church Women's Dormitory checking out the new washing machine. Angelene voiced a strong "pro adopting washing machine" voice since whenever the day for her turn of washing the clothes comes her small body is pushed to the limits, while both Agnese and Lucia are silent. She is later surprised by Kanzaki Kaori not wearing any underwear under her yukata, after Orsola takes off her obi to test the washing machine's waters, to which she responds that is the way yukatas are supposed to be worn. After using the clothes that they are currently wearing to test the washing machine, Sherry Cromwell notes that Kanzaki's obi's colors may become faded if washed there, to which Kanzaki frantically tries to stop the machine, despite her being technologically impaired by it. After the machine malfunctions and spouts water on the befuddled Kanzaki, Angelene is amazed to know that Kanzaki really doesn't wear any underwear, as she tears up from the embarrassment.
Anglican Church–Russian Orthodox Church Prewar Conference[edit | edit source]
As two great Churches discuss their position in the War that is about to come. She, and the rest of her group stay in the women's dormitory.
Angelene is first seen alongside Lucia and Agnese, where she and the former argue about on how to get big breasts. Lucia states that a nun should not need large breasts, as it tempts men, to which Angelene calls her out that someone who groups herself with having big breasts and complains on it getting bigger would not understand how she feels, much to Lucia's embarrassment. As Kanzaki appears to announce the pre-meal prayer, Angelene points out her breasts as well, attributing it to Japanese food, and Lucia telling her to make herself look decent if she is a nun. Kanzaki tries to explain that the clothes are not there to draw attention, but Angelene and Lucia wouldn't have none of it, clicking their tongues in exasperation. As food is prepared, Angelene enjoys her meal, and shows that she is much of a glutton like Index during a meal, stealing Lucia's pasta after her little lecture on moderation. After Angelene and Lucia notice Kanzaki's umeboshi, and after Orsola eats one of it, stating that it is delicious, Angelene tries to eat one of it as well, but falls down to the floor, overwhelmed by its sourness. She later runs away screaming.
Angelene reappears later running towards Kanzaki, and after telling her that she will never eat umeboshi again, Angelene tells Kanzaki that she is needed as a representative of the dorm by Sasha Kreutzev. Angelene is the one who brings Sasha into the dorm entrance to meet Kanzaki, and later goes to the dining hall with them to meet the others. Like a child, Angelene tugs on Kanzaki's pants and asks why Sasha is wearing such a queer outfit, and as they argue on the reasons, and Sherry Cromwell giving her own impression, Sasha overhears it and curses Vasilisa. Sasha later asks them which side they were taking on in the inevitable War. Angelene listens on to Sasha's reasons and later hears Orsola as she gives her opinion regarding the matter to which she says that they will do remains the same, and that is to help people even if there is war, and references Touma being able to save people even without power. Orsola concludes that it is not up to the whole to decide which path to take, but it is up to the individual members, and states that there should be a third option where there is a happy ending where no one is defeated, for the sake of Touma's expectations.
British Royal Family Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: British Royal Family Arc
Angelene is first seen in a yacht yard in Edinburgh, Scotland. She gives Agnese a report regarding on how New Light has excavated something near Edinburgh, and was most likely an important item. Just then, Angelene overhears the frantic cries of Caterina, who shows Agnese a rolled up parchment that shocks her.
British Halloween[edit | edit source]
- Main article: British Halloween
As the English Civil War begins, the Knights of England surround the Agnese Forces. Angelene says that she is worried about London as she is unable to contact them, while having her coin bags already mobilized in the air. One of the knights tell them that they should surrender or else they would be killed, as he draws his sword upon Agnese's neck. She smiles, and shows no fear. She strikes her Lotus Wand on the ground at her feet, enveloping the area in a bright light for 5 seconds, allowing for the 250 nuns to escape, and forcing the knights to make a search.
It is later revealed that they jumped into the ocean, and is with Agnese and Lucia. While Angelene's teeth chatters due to the cold ocean, she asks Agnese what they are going to do now. Lucia states that they are on their own as they cannot contact London. Agnese states that the other nuns would be most likely be captured, which terrifies Angelene, but is shushed up by Agnese. She says that they are most likely going to be transported to England where Princess Carissa, the prime instigator of the attempt of a coup d'etat on the United Kingdom, will be. Agnese says that they need to rescue the captured nuns while they are being transported.
Agnese, Lucia, and Angelene, infiltrate a ten car train that was heading from Edinburgh to London, where the nuns of their group that have been captured and are being transported. Agnese discovers that there in the middle of the series of cars, and discovers that the nuns are kept in the front cars while the knights are all in the back. Seeing the opportunity, Lucia and Angelene attack the guards through the window, as so to confuse them that the attack is coming from a sniper. With this, Agnese begins to try and destroy the links between the carriages, allowing for them and the nuns to leave the knights behind. Suddenly, a knight comes along and using the communication spiritual item, and Agnese is forced to hide. Here, she overhears, and is overjoyed, that Touma has snuck aboard the freight heading for Folkestone. The three of the attack at the same time, but the knight blocks Angelene and Lucia's attacks. However, Agnese uses her Lotus Wand to destroy attack the floor, and add to the weight of the knight's armor, making the knight fall into it, trapping him. Stuck, Agnese can now do as she pleases, though the knight is still protected by Curtana Original's blessing, weakening attacks. Despite this, Agnese attacks the knight using her Lotus Wand directed towards his crotch. Meanwhile, after Angelene witnesses Agnese screwing around with the knight, she goes to the communication spiritual item to intercept messages and discover that Touma, calling him the spiky-haired boy, and that through some crazy coincidences, they met up with Princess Villian, and are now being pursued by the knights, much to Lucia's bewilderment. Angelene and Lucia later notice what Agnese is doing and discusses on what they should do. Angelene becomes worried, but Lucia tells her that Agnese is a type of girl who likes flipping skirts but doesn't like getting her skirt flipped. They the proceed to calm her down.
As Touma and Index rendezvous with the rest of the Amakusa, Kanzaki reports that Sherry Cromwell is battling the knights, and that Agnese forces are battling other knights as well.
Apparently, Agnese was successful with her plan, and they, gather with Necessarius for a last supper before they catch the hell. Angelene sits next to Index, and is angered on how Index steals food from her plate, tattling it to Lucia, like a child. Lucia tells Angelene that they are supposed to love their neighbors and not doubt others, to which Angelene says that she swears that Index has eaten her food. Angelene then sees for herself that Index really is stealing her food, to which Lucia responds by giving the food she has as to get rid of the deadly sins she has inquired during her meal with Index. Much to Angelene's dismay they were all bitter vegetables. Angelene tries to eat some but can only convulse to it, while Lucia tries to mind her. The Amakusa later argue about Maid Outfits that piques the interest of Angelene, prompting her to ask Agnese. She concludes that it is a contest to see who is the most mature by seeing who makes the sexiest maid, and states that even though they have 250 nuns at their disposal they have no one with excessive breasts. She and Angelene turn towards Lucia, the one with the largest breast in their group, to which she firmly refuses after Agnese suggests in her donning the Little Devil Flirting Maid.
During the battle between Kamijou Touma and Kanzaki Kaori against Princess Carissa, the Agnese Forces, Amakusa Remix-style of Church, and Orsola Aquinas with Sherry Cromwell and her golem arrive at the scene. Here, Angelene is stated to have several coinbags with her for the battle. Initially shocked by the level of battle Carissa and Kanzaki were fighting, she and the rest of the lot assist Kanzaki in trying to take down Carissa, but is unable to penetrate her defenses. The Griffin Sky mobile fortresses however arrive as her reinforcements, and rain lances upon Sherry's golem, raining debris threatening to crush the rest of the forces, while Agnese and Lucia frantically try to take cover. After a bunker cluster missile was shot towards London, Touma tries to call out to his Anglican Church comrades, Angelene being one of them, but cannot find any trace of them.

Later, with the battle done, and as explosions thunder across the continent, the Agnese forces race towards the Russian battlefield where both Academy City and Russian soldiers have collapsed. Angelene is ordered by Agnese to call out nuns who specializes in Divine Mother-style Ex Voto as the shelters for the soldiers conveniently resemble the Son of God's manger, according to Idol Theory. The nuns then witness another Golden Arm pop-up nearby, which is later cleanly cut down by Kanzaki Kaori, shocking the soldiers present.
Shinyaku Toaru Majutsu no Index[edit | edit source]
Homecoming Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Homecoming Arc
In St. George's Cathedral, as Itsuwa becomes frantic due to the information that Touma is still alive and in Academy City, Angelene witnesses Tatemiya Saiji offer her a bamboo sword to spar in order to clear her thoughts. She calls out to Lucia regarding a "samurai battle" that is taking place, but is scolded by Lucia for cheering on a fight, unbefitting of a nun. Angelene becomes excited however, and references Shinken Shirahadori, trying to imitate the blade catching technique. Seeing Angelene's excited demeanor however, makes Saiji nervous, as it would seem that not pulling it off would make Angelene disappointed. Saiji tells Itsuwa that they have no choice, and tosses his bamboo sword aside, in order to try out the sword catching technique, which surprises Itsuwa enough to raise her voice, and gather more nuns towards them as well as the other members of the Amakusa. Itsuwa attacks Saiji, and he is unable to catch the sword, hitting him on the head. Because of this however, Itsuwa sees the need to follow through, for the sake of Saiji as it would be embarrassing. She tells Saiji that it was just a practice run, as such, it doesn't count. They try again, and Saiji is hit in the head again, much their frustration. Kouyagi then comes up and offers them an imitation sword steel-forged sword, after Saiji tells her that the bamboo sword throws her off her timing. Saiji is expectedly horrified with it, and is then hit in the head again by Itsuwa, but this time, with the iron-forged sword.
As Saiji writhes in pain, Itsuwa still complains that her timing is off, and that a real sword is needed for Saiji to catch it. Just then, Tsushima offers a real sword, a Bateren-dedicated Kanemitsu Toushou. Saiji is utterly terrified, as Itsuwa takes the sword and her face is shadowed as she prepares to finish their demonstration with Saiji. Angelene's eyes sparkle at the prospect of finally seeing the sword catching technique, but Saiji wants to back off. However, Itsuwa doesn't want to Saiji to gain more shame. Seeing that Itsuwa will not yield, Saiji steels himself, and hopes he'd gain some hidden ability like on those protagonists.
Magic God Othinus Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Magic God Othinus Arc
Prior to the start of the arc, the Agnese Forces have made efforts in trying to go back to the Roman Catholic Church now that the war has ended and that tensions between Anglicans and the Catholics have lessened. As part of this process, Agnese, Lucia, and Angelene are part of the security personnel for the conference called upon by Roberto Katze.
Here, they are in the United Nations Building's library, checking out documents for any magic power that has been hidden inside. With hundreds of pages to check, Agnese begins complaining, saying that if they're really afraid of an attack from GREMLIN then they should stop anyone from bringing published items during the meeting. Lucia says that doing such a thing under their authority would cause problems, as the UN is fundamentally neutral and if a single religion began selecting what published materials could be brought inside, it could lead to an international issue. Angelene speaks up saying that normal people don't understand the danger of the problem they're dealing with. Agnese then asks what they think about the united attack on GREMLIN. Lucia says that it all hinges on whether they can locate Sargasso, and says that the key to it is the spy who has slipped into GREMLIN. Angelene wonders if that spy will send a signal from Sargasso and their search team could detect it. Agnese sighs, wondering if they can trust the spy. Lucia replies saying that since the spy has a way to sneak into GREMLIN's headquarters, it would make him suspicious. Angelene tries to defend they spy, saying that the spy has no reason to betray them, but is replied by Agnese that it's more accurate to say that GREMLIN has no reason to make a bluff like that right now. Lucia then says on how they have no choice but to trust the spy because they want the same thing.
Lucia then states that if even they find Sargasso there is still the matter of the unified attack, they still need to fight expert magicians and says that she doubts they are enemy they can defeat without sacrifices. Agnese reminds them that GREMLIN is in hiding, therefore they believe it is to their advantage to remain hidden. Here, she assumes that at least locating Sargasso will crush one of GREMLIN's advantages. Angelene hopes nothing bad will come out of it, comparing it to a metaphor of poking a bush and having a snake come out.
Shifting and Fluctuating World[edit | edit source]
In the final recreation of the world by Othinus created specifically to break Touma's spirit, known as the Version_Omega world in-text, where several characters from the original world have been "saved" or have not experienced great tragedy, people from the magic side like nuns are allowed to enter Academy City, and seemingly have no complex against science. Orsola Aquinas, Angelene, Lucia, and Lidvia Lorenzetti are first sighted by Touma near a hot-dog truck. Angelene is eager for the expensive hot-dogs, but Lucia ever the prude tells her that Angelene is both being gluttonous and greedy, and that a nun must not eating something like that. She then turns to Lidvia and asks her to say something as well. She however, states that Orsola has already started eating one. Touma later buys a hot-dog from the same truck, apparently serving as a last meal before deciding to kill himself.
VS The World[edit | edit source]
After Touma spirits away to Denmark with Othinus, it was determined by the international coalition to hunt them down. The Pope and Roman Catholic Church relieves Agnese Sanctis, Lucia, and Angelene of their positions as security for the meeting of the international coalition and have them and the rest of the Agnese Forces sent to Denmark. They are transported there by their ally the United States of America through the use of their stealth bombers, putting them inside their bomb bays as it is apparently faster than a transport plane. They're forces are further increased by the inclusion of elites of the Roman and Anglican Churches, thus starting the Anti-GREMLIN Alliance's manhunt for Othinus and Kamijou Touma.
They arrive at an emergency airport in Aarhus near Aalborg half an hour before Touma and Othinus arrival. They stealth bombers were supposed to land in Aalborg's military airport, but due to the meteor fall earlier (actually Accelerator launched from a satellite by Academy City), they were ordered to land elsewhere. The personnel there begin preparing transportation to use in order to find Othinus and Touma, as well as each members of the three major churches sharing information with each other, and how to utilize the information they had with the other churches interfering or aiding each other in mind. Agnese then orders her forces that they will be following the information they attained and head for Aalborg. She orders that the Pope should be asked to make preparations on his end. She notes that the other forces will most likely lay in watch on the alternate routes and watch what they will do. As they have the greatest numbers, she says that the other churches' members will probably view them as bait or something to scare Touma and Othinus out of hiding. She however says that if they get a bite the others might come rushing in.
Agnese Sanctis, wanting to give Touma a chance, later sets up the Fish of the Supper spell, designed to work against Touma's Imagine Breaker. The Agnese Forces later occupy the streets of Aalborg in search for them, with Agnese setting their base of operations in Ansgar Church. They later detect Touma and Othinus hiding somewhere in the city. With Touma in mind, they later announce to the entire city to them not to fight back and surrender at Ansgar Church with the intention of retrieving Touma from the fight by making him surrender and then destroying Othinus afterwards. Like the rest of Agnese Forces, Lucia and Angelene patrol the streets of Aalborg, acting as one of the "cannons" of Fish of the Supper spell.
Lucia and Angelene later finds Touma and attacks him using the spell, intending to carry out on taking Touma out but not kill him. After they see Touma disappears, Lucia orders the nun to stop, and fearing the worst that they've killed Touma instead of just simply taking him out. When the nuns gathered at the spot where Touma disappeared, Angelene asks why there was a square hole in the stone-paved road.

The Fourth Friday of September[edit | edit source]
The Fourth Friday of September.
Late night in the Necessarius' Women's Dormitory, Angelene first appears after smelling Kanzaki's late night cooking. As she enters the dining hall, seeing as Kanzaki has chugged down her food in 30 seconds due to her arriving, Angelene asks her if she saw the mysterious person with the amazingly smelling food, to which Kanzaki denies, specifically denying ramen, though Angelene does not notice. As she wanders about the kitchen sniffing the food out like a dog, the other nuns enter. Lucia asks her what's going on, to which Angelene responds by saying that she has created autumn art.
Apparently, in the small timespan Kanzaki turned away from gazing at Angelene, she has managed to stick three silver forks on her chocolate cornet and declares it art. Of course, Lucia is angered and wants to spank Angelene 100 times after seeing something so ridiculous.
Angelene declares that the dessert bread is an expression of the anger swirling around inside of her, but eventually concludes that her art is an expression of her getting makes her hungrier. Lucia falls into silence, and then tells Angelene that since now her artistic commentary is over, she will be spanking her now a 100 times. Just then, Sherry Cromwell enters the dining hall and sees Lucia spanking Angelene for sticking forks onto a chocolate cornet and calling it art. Lucia tells Sherry not to make such jokes, as Angelene has reacted badly as if she just discovered a mysterious truth. She becomes intrigued at the dessert with forks sticking out of it, and asks Lucia and Angelene, which she calls Nuns #1 and #2, much to their irritation, that she wants to touch the dessert bread. She inspects it like a true connoisseur of pastry-related artwork. She then gives out her analysis on the meaning of Angelene's artwork, much to Kanzaki's disbelief.
Anime appearances[edit | edit source]
Toaru Majutsu no Index-tan[edit | edit source]
In the third episode, Angelene, though bothered, serves as Agnese-tan's transportation device. She is apparently unaffected by Agnese continually hitting her head with her mini-Lotus Wand, and for much of the sketch, just walks alongside Touma, who is with Index-tan.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Her magic revolves around a bag she carries around, which is reference to Apostle Matthew as a tax collector. Infusing angelic prayer into the coinbags allow them to be changed into aerial weapons.These bags of gold act as projectiles which glow with the colors of each of the Four Elements: Water, Fire, Earth and Air. The bags spread 6 wings after it's activation, and can float and move about in the air, being remotely controlled by Angelene, which can also automatically lock on an object.
Activating the coin bags requires Angelene to chant these words: "Come out, one of the twelve disciples, tax collector and lowly servant of the eradicating magician!"However, because of this, Index can easily hijack it with her Spell Intercept, as well as Angelene's poor usage of it, with the chant too long and longer casting time.
Other abilities[edit | edit source]
Along with Lucia, she is able to modify the Forbidden colored robe she was forced to wear and use it as a tool for a magic spell, along them to escape the ice ship, during their captivity in the Queen's Fleet.
She has a degree of training in forensic cleaning techniques for removing physical evidence and eliminating residual traces of magic from the scenes of magical incidents, utilizing the Roman Catholic style of forensic cleanup (which includes the use of salt in holy water).
She is capable of setting traps to impede an enemy's attempts to escape.
Character Art Designs[edit | edit source]
Design Evolution[edit | edit source]
Angelene's design remains static throughout the series. According to Haimura, she was designed as the member of the Agnese Forces that gets teased a lot and as the mascot of the group. In Volume SS, where Haimura designs them in their Roman Catholic Church habits for the first time, she, along with Lucia were designed to look distinguishable from Agnese.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
- (Regarding Agnese from volume 11) "I-I’m not like Sister Lucia, who acts on belief... Everyone has their own reason. In the past, Sister Agnese took good care of me. Though it’s not like those 1 or 2 major events, I kept getting helped by her. Thus I don’t want to say goodbye to Sister Agnese without repaying her completely. If I want to repay her, now’s the time."
- (Internal monologue, ibid) "Even if it’s others, everyone definitely has a virtue. Among us, definitely, no one is a real bad person. Why did it become like this? I hate bad people. I had enough of the battle of the balance between good and evil. Save...Someone save them...save me...and my precious comrades. Save them from...this nonsensical...darkness..."
- (To sister Lucia's comments from SS1) "Wah! You say all that, but still declare yourself as having large breasts!? I won’t let you draw the line as cruelly as that! And someone like you who complains about her breasts getting bigger even though you’d thought they’d stopped growing and saying they hurt wouldn’t understand how I feeghaah!?"
- (To sister Lucia regarding her chocolate cornet art in SS2) "This is an expression of the anger swirling around inside me... The anger in my heart wants to leap from my chest, but energy is needed for it to do so. The exchange of energy means that anger directed towards others comes back to you. Basically, what I’m trying to say is that getting too angry makes you even hungrier!"
- (On Agnese from volume 18) "Gyaah! S-Sister Agnese is in her full-blown naughty mood!"
- (To Index, ibid) "Now you clearly just stole my food!! That wasn’t just looking for an opening and sneaking it away! You ate my meatball right in front of me!!"
- (To Lucia, ibid) "Gyaah! That’s nothing but vegetables and bitter ones at that! Sister Lucia, are you the kind of person that brings her trials and tribulations to the dinner table!?"

- Based on how Kanzaki Kaori, Agnese Sanctis, and Lucia were each given food from their countries during the breakfast in the Necessarius Women's Dormitory prior to the Anglican Church–Russian Orthodox Church Prewar Conference, the fact that Angelene was given French food seems to imply that she is French.
