The main feature of her character is the strength of the will that she manifests in the fight with Creon for the right to bury her brother in the established rite. She honors the ancient law of the tribal society. She does not doubt the correctness of the decision. Feeling true, Antigone boldly challenges Creon.
She consciously goes to meet death, but like any other person, it's hard for her to stop living that promises so many joys to a young girl. She does not regret what happened, she regrets of her dying youth, that she has not been mourned by anyone.
