Una is the true faith-a symbol of truth and faithfulness. Una enlists RCK's help to defeat the monster and free her parents.

Duessa is the false church and is associated with the House of Pride which protrays all of the corruption in the world (there are fallen princes there). Duessa is used to lead Redcrosse astray and thus to prevent him from finishing his quest.
