Powers/Abilities: Sister Angelique was a pacifist, and disliked all violence. She tried to teach this to her young charges.

History: (Combat Kelly and his Deadly Dozen#7 (fb)) - Sister Angelique was a French nun who was well-known for preaching pacifism. She got into trouble with the Germans, and was sheltered from the Nazis by a German Jewish family who had a farmhouse in France near the border. When the couple were rounded up by the Nazis, Sister Angelique took charge of their daughters, Erika and Esther. Later, she took in the two French orphans Paul and Phillipe.

(Combat Kelly and his Deadly Dozen#7) - As Sister Angelique was setting out dinner, she and the children were confronted by four German soldiers who were weary and famished. She offered them her hospitality, and they were gracious, but members of the Deadly Dozen arrived on the scene, and one of them, Ace Hamilton, opened fire on the Germans when he saw them. Erika ended the gunfire by shooting Ace in the arm, and Sister Angelique was able to get the two sides to achieve a temporary peace. The Germans agreed to turn themselves over to the Americans' custody, and the Deadly Dozen surrendered their weapons for the evening while they slept at the farmhouse. However, one of the Germans tried to rape Erika during the night, and a fight broke out between the two sides. Sister Angelique took one of their guns and threatened to shoot all of them unless they stopped. They did, and agreed to leave. Sister Angelique was saddened to note that if even a staunch pacifist such as herself could be made to resort to violence, it was no wonder that so many others had.
