"Sometimes truth demands sacrifice. Perhaps in time, you can come to accept that—because the truth will rarely take your feelings into consideration."

- Angelina speaking to Glaive

Born to a wealthy family in Skyway, Angelina ir'Tain was an aasimar not content with the expectations of her station to "put on a pointless display" of wealth and grandeur for the other wealthy families of Sharn's elite. When she was a teenager, she ran away to join a a druidic circle of wildfire, where she could be "free to live her own truth", which often manifested itself with her setting things on fire.

Eventually, Angelina would return to Sharn where she would meet the minotaur F. Francis Ferdinand. Together, they would form an inquisitive agency called Labyrinth Investigations in Tavick's Landing, which specialized in paranormal, supernatural, or otherwise magical mysteries that proved too difficult for the Sharn Watch and other private parties.

Although she was personally described by others as "morally bankrupt" and "utterly lacking empathy", Angelina's love of a good mystery, magical acumen, knack for unorthodox thinking, and ability to get results helped her establish some contacts within the Sharn Watch that allowed her to work with the city council on some high-profile cases.

One such case involved the warforged solider Glaive, who had witnessed something that could provide critical testimony for the prosecution's case. Angelina made arrangements with House Olander to get the warforged to the Twelve Pillars Courthouse in time to take the stand, but Glaive was murdered by a civilian in the gallery (likely arranged by the accused, but ultimately unproven, as the killer was swiftly disintegrated).

With a murder in Sharn's biggest courthouse and mistrial almost inevitable, Prosecutor Vonkarma demanded that Angelina immediately cast reincarnate to bring the warforged back to life so that its testimony could be heard—and so that Vonkarma could maintain his perfect record. Angelina requested a cleric to perform a revivify instead, but Vonkarma was relentless, claiming any further delay would be unacceptable. Angelina acquiesced to the prosecutor's demands and cast the spell, which caused Glaive to return to life in the new body of a human man.

After testifying, Glaive demanded that Angelina turn him back into a warforged, but Angelina was unable to offer any assistance. She assured Glaive that he would adapt, and that his sacrifice had been worth it to expose the larger truth behind the trial. This dismissiveness would eventually get her killed when some years later, Glaive returned to Sharn and murdered her with a will-o'-wisp, setting into motion the Mystery of the Flickering Lantern.

Because Angelina was evil, after she was slain by the wisp, she rose as one herself. Her undead form was revealed by Amadea Veks, but when she attacked Amadea, she was captured and imprisoned in a lantern of revealing by Ferdinand. She remained trapped for several years as a fixture in her former (now Ferdinand's) office, until Ferdinand had the lantern emblazoned with the Veks family social so he could give it to Amadea as a gift after she became a cleric.

Since that time, Angelina's spirit seems to have become subdued, and she now acts and functions as a spirit trapped within a ghost lantern.
