They follow in the footsteps of their father, the devil. They enter your world like an angel of light. A thing of beauty and wonder.
They are super-de-duper nice. Like Barney.
They worship the ground you walk on.
They are very religious. Think Ghandi.
They tell you that you COMPLETE them. (Watch out with that one.)
They do good deeds. Like Mother Theresa.
They are charming. Attractive. Kind. Thoughtful. Spiritual.
Often (not always) you will find them in or jockeying for leadership positions.
Often (not always) they are very confident.
Often (not always) they live generously.
