Anna is one of the smartest people in Neverwinter, along with Roland, Kyle and Tilly. She has her own personal laboratory, the High Energy Lab, where she primarily creates uranium containment cubes.
Despite being the queen, Anna allows Roland to handle the royal duties; instead, she works as the Minister of Industry, a position she requested from Roland due to her love of experimenting and inventing.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
When she is first met in the dungeon, she only wore coarse linen that couldn’t even fully cover her body with her arms and feet sticking out and turning blue. She had a pair of pale blue eyes, like a calm lake before the onset of heavy rains. There was no fear on the witch’s face and you couldn’t see any anger or hatred. Roland saw a vision, it was as if what he saw in front of him was not a weak little girl. Instead, it appeared as if he was in front of a raging flame. He suddenly felt that the torch light from the walls was a little dim.
Her most common outfit is a red dress with a white apron and knee high black boots and matching black gloves. Roland based it off a maid uniform, feeling it would work better for Anna when working. Though it's mentioned that in a later chapter, Anna wears a more modern outfit of a pale blue dress with leggings.
Her sleepwear started out as a nightgown, bit later switched to a short nightshirt.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Normally, Anna is a reserved person who doesn't say much unless needed or spoken to. This changes when she is alone with Roland, or when they are talking about science. She becomes very talkative and lively, almost as if she was another person.
Anna is straightforward to a fault. She doesn't like beating around the bush and goes straight to the heart of the matter in conversations.
Anna is a studious and genius person, who enjoys learning new things; Karl noted that in his class she would always have more questions. As she learns more from Roland, her thirst for knowledge only increases. Roland also noticed that she almost always has a book on hand to read. Anna shows a love for experimentation; investigating materials to discover new things and learn.
Anna is also a bit shy. This is shown when she says she isn't comfortable with showing acts of affection with Roland in public. Though she is okay with praising of her accomplishments. While she can never be one naturally, Anna does have a maternal side. Anna is comforting and supporting to the young members of the Witch Union.
She full-heartedly accepts inventions Roland produces, always trusting good intentions are behind them. Anna even helps an apprehensive and embarrassed Nightingale understand the new "garment" Roland had made for the older witches was out of concern and not some kind of perverse idea; not only had Anna worn the one gifted to her immediately, she had already began thinking of ways to improve the design, showing her pragmatic thinking.
It is hinted Anna shared almost the same amount of IQ as Tilly.
Background[edit | edit source]
One day there was a fire in her house which resulted in the death of her mother. This was also the day she awakened as a witch. After her mother's death, her father would almost never let her outside of the house.
When the mine collapsed, she rushed to the mine and found her father with a crushed leg being robbed by another miner. She used her power to kill the looter and was reported for being a witch by her father for a reward of 25 golden royals.
Chronology[edit | edit source]
Anna was about to be hanged when Roland ordered to postpone it for later. Next day he visited her in the dungeon and after making sure her power was real, proposed her to work for him.
After the hiring, Anna was led into the castle and told by Roland to practice her control of magic. During this time, she also started receiving lessons on science from Roland.
When she mastered flame control enough to not burn her clothes, Roland tasked her to fire cement and weld metal parts.
She revealed herself to townspeople while closing the gap made by tortoise demonic hybrid during the defense of the town in the Months of Demons. After that, she fainted due to magic exhaustion and had slept a week. She safely got over Day of Adulthood, without the slightest pain, and developed her magic into green flame.
With her new ability, Anna was able to accelerate Roland's plan to improve Border Town.
