Sarah Oppenheim was a graduate student at Meridian University, working on a Ph.D. in comparative Qabbalistic traditions.  While pulling an all-nighter, she fell asleep and dreamed of a battle of angels versus demons.  When she awoke, she found herself transformed into something not entirely human.  Set upon almost immediately by a band of demons, she fought them off instinctively, learning of her abilities to take and restore Life.  Realizing she could never return to her old life, she took the name Anthriel (after the Angel of Balance), using her powers to protect mankind from the vile powers of the Unrighteous.

Anthriel's sword is just a normal weapon and can be taken away, broken, or lost.  She carries it partly because it goes with her angelic theme and partly to use against foes who are immune to her Affliction power (and therefore, probably Unrighteous and inhuman).  With it, she does Strength +1 Slashing damage.
