In K-12, Angelita was revealed to be an empath guided by Lilith (a spirit guide). When her eyes turn black, it represents her being awakened to a higher level of consciousness. She can move objects from a distance and create fire with her mind.
Angelita is first seen when Cry Baby boards the school bus to K-12 Sleepaway School. The two appear to have been friends for a while. When one of the other students throws a note at Cry Baby calling her a "gap-toothed bitch", Angelita tells her to ignore them, calling them "real mature". Kelly and the other students continue to harass her, now making fun of her name. The two girls use their powers to cause the bus to swerve around.
The driver sees blood on the mirror and drives into the lake nearby, but when Cry Baby and Angelita see this, they use their powers to make the bus fly into the air. Angelita considers not letting the bus down, but a boy yells that he's going to jump out the window. They decide to land the bus and are taken to K-12 Sleepaway School. In Teacher's Pet, Angelita seems to be having an affair with the Biology Teacher whom tells her to stay after the class ends.
It is implied that Angelita had a difficult childhood, since she says a phrase in French that means "There's blood everywhere", which she explains that she had learned it from her nanny.
As opposed to Cry Baby, Angelita is cold and laid back. She will not hesitate to use her powers to harm those she hates which is shown when she encourages Cry Baby to use her powers during her fight with Kelly. Aside from that, she is a soft-spoken girl who sticks up for Cry Baby and others.
In Alternative Press magazine, Angelita was revealed to be a Leo sun and Libra rising. Her zodiac sign was described as tactful, romantic, charming, just, diplomatic and balanced, but also superficial, detached, unreliable, laid-back, indecisive and self-indulgent.
Powers and Abilities
Main Article: Empath (Mental Feature)
As an Empath, Angelita is shown to have magic/psychic powers, where her eyes are turned completely black when she uses them. This is shown multiple times in K-12, telling her friend Cry Baby that "they can do whatever they want" when it comes to their powers. It is shown that she often takes advantage of her skills for her own benefit. Below is a list of powers that Angelita has displayed thus far:
- Telekinesis: Like all Empaths, Angelita has demonstrated the use of telekinesis to move objects with her mind's force. The power is first shown in Wheels on the Bus, coupled with Cry Baby's own psychic abilities. Angelita uses this ability multiple times throughout K-12.
- Mental Reintegration: In the scene directly before Nurse's Office, after seeing Cry Baby in doll form, Angelita was able to turn Cry Baby back to her normal state. A pinkish fog is created around her target when the power is used.
- Pyrokinesis: As seen in Class Fight, Angelita has the ability to manipulate fire, creating a small flame in her hand without being hurt by it. She can generate it on her own, but the fire can be easily dissipated, as seen when Cry Baby put out the fire with a few drops of water.
- Knife Proficiency: Angelita is shown to be very proficient in using knives as weapons. This is shown when she attacks and kills the Biology Teacher at the end of Teacher's Pet. This ability came from Angelita's actress, Elita Harkov.
- Angelita is the second character to be portrayed by Elita, after Cashier.
- According to Melanie, Angelita's hairstyle changes the most throughout the movie.
- The knife seen in the music video for Elita's debut single, I Hate Everyone But You, is visually similar to the one that Angelita uses to kill the teacher in Teacher's Pet.
