She carries The Point of Truth in her right hand, which emits a zone of truth around her, and The Shield of Purity in her left. Even a child feels brave in the presence of Angina. Her mount is clad in Plate as well of the same make as the riders. When Angina is in a charge none who charge with her feel fear; all whom she charges are shaken!

The kings will leave the army in command of the clergy of Angina. Close followers of Angina are admired and respected. The people of the church view themselves as a means to deliver what is right and good. A person must search themselves and purify the motives and desires of there heart. Then with respect, love and honor they can spread the great law amongst the people. A follower of Angina is always critical of him/herself before criticizing another.

None amongst the gods does not feel ashamed when Angina is disappointed with them. She serves as the light that continues to shine though all darkness should come. She is the object of home when all seems lost. If Angina still stands then there is always a chance. When evil is done to her or those around her she is filled with a holy anger that drives her to make right what has been wronged and make good what has been tainted with evil.
  Depiction: Angina is commonly portrayed as a white rider with a full helmet and clad in fine armor carrying a lance in her right arm and a shield in her left. Other depictions can range from a variety of symbols of justice depending on the region you are in. Her actually symbol are scales being perfectly in Balance and with perfect symmetry, the four chains on the scale are exactly opposite each other. Angina is sometimes holding this scale out watching closely to make sure it is in balance. It has been speculated that when the power of the gods is out of balance the symbol of Angina will be slightly tilted to one side. Though there is no proof for this.
