When being dead is just the opening chapter in your life story, then you know things are going to get pretty interesting, a little weird, and very, very dangerous. That's the position Ava (Alba Baptista) finds herself in when Netflix's Warrior Nun premieres on July 2, with the 19-year-old waking up in a morgue with a second chance at life, a divine artifact renting out space in her back, and this uncontrollable need to kick the holy hell out of evil. Created by series showrunner Simon Barry (Continuum, Van Helsing) and inspired by Ben Dunn's Warrior Nun Areala manga comics, Warrior Nun introduces Ava (and viewers) to an ancient order that she finds herself a part of, one tasked with fighting demons on Earth. But as she struggles to understand and control her newly-discovered powers, powerful forces from Heaven and Hell will do their best to control her. The following character profile posters introduce viewers to Ava as well as Sister Lilith (Lorena Andrea), Sister Beatrice (Kristina Tonteri-Young), and Sister Camila (Olivia Delcán)- each offering some insight into what motivates each of them.
