Angelique was the princess of the labyrinith before becoming a cenobite. So far, she is the only known demon to be turned into a cenobite.


Angelique was summoned by a weathly French man named Duc De L'Isle, who killed a young woman and performed a ritual connecting the gateway between Earth and Hell using the puzzle box (Lament Configuration). The final step brought forth a demon servant with a requirement that a vessel this servant would use have minimally damaged skin from the sacrificed victim.

Owing to the fact that he assisted in the ritual, Jacques (De L'lsles' assistant and servant) can also control Angelique. Together they decided to kill De L'lsle, after which Jacques commands Angelique to kill Phillipe Le' Marchant (who returned to the mansion in order to retrieve the puzzle box).

200 years later, Angelique (who has kept Jacques alive) kills him for refusing permission to investigate the Le' Marchant heir in New York. When she arrives in New York, Angelique discovers that John (Le' Marchant's heir) has unintentionally created an artifact similar to the Lament Configuration, which is potentially the largest gateway to Hell. She proceeds to sacrifice a victim by having him solve the puzzle box, which she hopes will summon reinforcements from Hell. Instead, Pinhead emerges from the gateway and states that things have changed since her absence from Hell.

Angelique and Pinhead try to force John Merchant to use the building as a permanent gateway to Hell. Along the way, they turn a pair of twin security guards into the Siamese Cenobites, and later use the Chatter Beast to hold John's wife and son hostage. In an act of defiance, John attempts to trap them, but is decapitated by one of Pinhead's chains. Meanwhile, John's wife manages to send all five Cenobites back to Hell.

Pinhead then turns Angelique into a Cenobite as punishment for her failure to manipulate John.

In 2127, the Cenobites are summoned to the space station Minos by Paul Merchant. The Cenobites manage to kill off all the officers except Rimmer. Rimmer (along with Paul) manages to destroy both the Cenobites and the gateway to Hell by using the Elysium Configuration, which turns out to be the entire space station.

Prior to becoming a Cenobite, Angelique's appearance was that of an attractive young woman. Her demonic form was never shown in the film. Viewers can only see her arm when she kills Jacques, and her eyes going from normal to dark. When she is transformed into a Cenobite, Angelique retains her human body. However, she is now bald and has her scalp peeled back, which is secured by wires and hooks that expose her skull. She also has hooks on the sides of her body (chest and stomach), and wears a tight leather dress rather than the standard Cenobite robes.

  • In the alternative script, De 'L'lsle invites eight gamblers to his home to play a game with Angelique. The game involves solving the puzzle box, which ends with Angelique transforming them into Pseudo Cenobites. They are loyal to Angelique, and kill one of Lemerchant's ancestors (Auguste). They then turn his skin into a drum for their "clown act".
  • In French, Angelique means "angelic."
