It was the 1400s and life was primitive, but Angelique managed to rule the people for two hundred years, on what would become Haiti, until Columbus arrived. Escaping her island home for Spain, the little angel with her malevolent intent, wandered through the world using humans to do her biding as her parents and guardians for the next two hundred years. Then in England in the 1800s, she brought down Nisroc, an angel she trusted to be her partner and helpmate. She was weary of depending on humans, always having to control them and train them and trust they would do as they were told. Her old friend, Nisroc, however, was the solution to all her problems.
