"I won't make any excuses for myself. No matter what sins I must bear, I will continue my fight to the end."
Mutant Freedom Fighter
Created as part of the Russian project “White Devil”, Anastasia was raised in a Framework simulation until she was ten. A mutant resistance group managed to break her out, but while they were escaping back to America they were attacked, triggering Anastasia’s mutant ability to control the Stepping Disks of Limbo. While it saved her from the attackers, it would also trap her in Limbo for the next decade.
Found by a group of Limbo demons and believed to be the Darkchilde come again, she grew up in Limbo more demon than human, learning to control dark magics.
Eventually finding a way back to earth, Anastasia discovered her older brother from her time in the Framework was a real person, and not just part of the program. Working with others, she helped to rescue him from Project White Devil and brought him back to Chicago.
At age sixteen, Aleksei was now her younger brother and needed someone to be his guardian. Stepping into that role, Anastasia learned to integrate herself into a life on Earth. Mostly.
A clone of Illyana “Magik” Rasputina by Russia’s White Devil project, Anastasia has inherited a measure of her predecessor’s might, both mutant and magical.
I Wanna Watch You Bleed
After nearly a decade spent in the hellish Otherspace known as Limbo with no human contact, Anastasia has a skewed moral compass. Often abrupt, most people find her off putting at best and her ideas of entertainment can occasionally shock or even horrify civilized people.
You Win or You Die
With the disappearance of the Darkchilde, there are a number of factions vying for control of Limbo. Anastasia has managed to build enough of a base of power to be a contender in this Game of Thrones which gives her some measure of control of her corner of Limbo that the Darkchilde had over the entire realm. It also comes with a whole list of those eager to bring her down, including her followers.
Apprentice of Time and Space
Anastasia has a lot more years than her paperwork would lead you to believe. Time runs differently in Limbo and it’s naturally occurring Stepping Disks theoretically join the Otherspace realm to all of time and space. Maybe someday Anastasia will be able to move through both at will, but right now she’s lucky if she can just game the system.
Steel Made of Soul and Sin
Despite a decade in hell, Anastasia still remembers what it’s like to love and what is good and right, even if she’s drawn to what’s wrong. She chooses to fight on the side of the angels, even though she’s sure there’s no place in heaven for her.
