Anastasia is one of the most daring women I've ever met. Originally born the daughter of Tsar Nikolas of Russia, she and her brother Alexai were the only ones to survive their family's massacre in the Revolution. Since her escape, she has taken refuge in England, and inherited a sizable estate. It is her house that we have dubbed "The Midnight Manor," and use as our base of operations.
Anastasia is a quick wit, and absolutely fearless. She's never had any trouble telling people what she thinks, and even less trouble getting out of a tight situation...Anastasia is a teleporter. Though I don't know the entire story, she came into an egyptian amulet when she was a child, and has since had the ability travel any distance in the blink of an eye. A pilgrimage to Egypt evidently enlightened her to the origin of her powers, and she has since referred to herself as "The Shadow of Ra." It's a cryptic title to be sure, but one that she wears with class, and a trademark sex-appeal.
As a teammate, Anastasia is fiercely loyal. As an opponent, she is merciless. As an intellectual she is downright scathing, and as a friend, she is nothing short of perfect.
