History: (The Stainless Steel Rat) Angelina began life as an extremely ugly child, and grew up hating the world around her. Too poor to afford the extensive surgery that could change her looks, and cursed with an extremely keen mind that allowed her to see the injustice of her life, the young girl turned to a life of murder and crime to get the funds she needed. Eventually the adult Angelina had transformed herself into a true beauty - on the outside; on the inside she had become as callous and psychotic as they come.
All this changed when her crime spree was finally ended by the supercrook turned special agent, Jim diGriz, a.k.a. the Stainless Steel Rat. During his pursuit of her, she gradually fell in love with him, and after brain surgery following her capture removed the worst of her psychotic tendencies, the two of them married and became the best agents the peacekeeping Special Corps ever had. Fuller profile to follow.
