Antigone was a selfless person with pride as a strong characteristic of her personality. She possibly had feelings of loneliness and anger from the way society has looked upon her family from their past. It took a strong willed person who has no fear of the repercussions to stand up to a king as she did.

Antigone contrasts two types of law and justice: divine or religious law on one hand, and the law of men and states on the other.
