Angelique is introduced in Season 2 of Penny Dreadful as a lady-for-hire with a secret. She is an outspoken and bold woman who later becomes one of Dorian Gray's love interests, and introduces herself without a last name.

Appearance and Personality Edit

Angelique is a woman trapped in the body of a young man with a slender body, long brown hair down to her shoulders and piercing dark eyes. Angelique is a woman of the world who wears fine clothes of bright colors with bows and crinolines. The difficulty of her existence since her very childhood have tempered her character, making Angelique a jaunty and provocative woman, who also hides a gentle soul that desperately seeks the gentle touch of a lover. In order not to preclude any pleasure to herself, Angelique decided to be ceded to the most uninhibited vices by working as an uptown prostitute.

History Edit

Angelique knew from the moment she was born that she was not the same as the other boys. Her parents resented her for not being normal, and ultimately ignored her and pushed her away. She decided to escape this life by moving to London and becoming who she really wanted to be. She created a new identity, Angelique, and later became a prostitute.[1]

In London, Angelique approached Dorian Gray at an outdoor café where she noticed him staring at a photograph of Vanessa Ives. She assumed Vanessa was Dorian's sister since they both had pale skin, dark hair and intoxicating eyes, but he corrected her and explained that Vanessa was just a friend. This gave Angelique an opportunity to sit down with Dorian and introduce herself. Dorian was intrigued by Angelique's boldness, and the two shared a flirtatious conversation filled with innuendo. It became obvious that Dorian was still heartbroken over Vanessa, and Angelique picked up on this, telling him about her own heartbreak and how she had been sadder ever since she swore off love. She then left him with her business card in case he ever wanted to mend his broken heart. Dorian later visited Angelique's brothel. Her madame assured Dorian that he wouldn't be disappointed, and that he should handle her firmly since she was wilful like a child. Angelique undressed, revealing her male genitalia, but Dorian was unfazed by the fact that she was transgender. [2]

Dorian and Angelique shared another date, where he took her to the Gossima Parlour.[3]

The pair were seen together quite publicly when Dorian threw a ball at his mansion as a coming out of sorts for Angelique. She became the jilted lover however, when Dorian laid eyes on Lily, who had arrived on the arm of Victor. Angelique and Victor found themselves both forgotten when Dorian and Lily entered the dance floor together.[4]

Angelique found herself abandoned again when Dorian left the mansion to go out on the town. While alone, she discovered his hidden painting, and just remained in the room with it until his return. When he finally did return, he offered her wine, but unfortunately for Angelique the price for discovering Dorian's painting was a deadly one, as Dorian had laced the drink with poison to protect his secret.[5]
