Highly popular martyress. Her pagan father locked her in a high tower to keep the men away — but she floated to safety. By the time she was caught again she had been converted to Christianity.
Her furious father struck off her head but was himself instantly zapped by lightning and reduced to ashes.
In her saintly mode our heroine protects the faithful from lightning — and due to the spot-on targeting of her ruthless father she is also the Patron Saint of Gunners.
Bearing in mind her method of escape from that tower, we feel that hang-gliding could be a good addition.
We feel duty bound to point out that her historical existence is a little shaky, but since when did that keep a good saint down? She was struck off the saintly register in 1969 but is still going strong.
