Who's Who: Angua (601 words)
Angua replaces Terry's prototype female werewolf Ludmilla Cake, and clearly owes a debt of inspiration to Conina the Barbarian Hairdresser and perhaps even Herrena.
Angua's family are from the Uberwald, an evocatively named region where vampire and werewolf nobility prey on terrified villagers.
It isn't always possible to relate to the actions of a semi intelligent troll or a cowardly wizard etc. Angua can be depended on to react to any situation in the same way as the reader might (except the transforming into a dog bit, of course) as opposed to some humorous exageration.
Angua (851 words)
Angua is a member of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, originally hired as part of an affirmative action plan by Havelock Vetinari.
Angua has also made friends with Gaspode, a matty, hairy canine who had gained the talent of human speech due to sleeping near the Unseen University.
