Seven Dancing Blossums, Her Duty to the Sidereals, Her Mother
Anja is a young girl of about 15. She wears simple pants and shirt. Over the shirt is a jacket and she wears boots good for any situation. Her clothing really is quite plain and does nothing to help her looks. Sadly for her the looks she has need no help. Golden blonde hair is held back in a pony-tail but would otherwise cascade down her back to the bottom of her shoulder blades. She has piercing blue eyes and a wonderful smile which is seen far too infrequently. Lightly tanned from her time outdoors she is definitly an attractive young girl who will surely grow up to be a beautiful women. This does nothing to help her personality though and her piercing eyes can quickly go cold to warn off people who might be interested.
Anja grew up in the city of Great Forks. An active tomboy of a girl she had lots of friends and was rarely at home. The reason she hated being at home was her father. A middle-level bureaucrat in a brandy business he was an abusive and violent man to both his wife and his child for whenever his day went bad. And if things weren't going really good, that meant it was a bad day. Anja loved her mother more then anything and when she could she tried to either calm her dad down or just get him to take out his anger on her instead. Even with having to deal with this she managed to go to school, hang out with friends, and even picked up some swordplay from her best friend who was getting taught by his dad.
At 14 even with all this she would still have thought herself a happy child. One evening though things changed her life forever. Her father had just been passed over at work for a promotion. Bad attitude they claimed and had been out drinking quite heavily. When he returned home and found only his daughter there he started to beat her. This time though for a reason known only to him things went differently and beyond the abuse he raped her. After this she couldn't stay. She ran from home that night, stealing her fathers sword when she left. She couldn't face her mother after that. To her she knew her mother loved her father more then anything, which is why she stayed with him even though he abused both of them. To have somehow tempted her father into having sex with her was unforgivable so she ran.
A week after leaving Great Forks she got surrounded by a group of Hill People. Having no money for them to have they decided to kill her. In the battle the Unconquered Sun decided to exalt her. She had always had great potential and she was doing well even though she would have lost without exalting. She killed them and found out where their camp was. She went to their camp and found the split blade. It was the leaders even though he couldn't use it, they had killed a farmer who had dug it up and took it. Meanwhile in the Halls of Heaven the Gold had finally convinced the Bronze to let them properly foster and watch over a solar. One the Bronze would not kill. She was chosen. After watching those who were exalting they thought she would be the easiest to manipulate, control and watch for madness. The Bronze would let the Gold take care of her and made sure a accurate record of her powers and skills was kept. With all the solars returning they also wanted to reaquaint their younger members with what a solar could be like given time to grow their skills.
Back to Anja, while wandering she came across a young cougar cub. It was alone, its mother killed and Anja started to take care of it, needing someone to love and love her in return. Her exaltation and power still young she bonded with it and it became her familiar. Within a week the Wyld Hunt arranged by the Gold found her and attacked. This was when Seven Blossums Dancing found her. She was a young 300 year old Gold faction Sidereal of Secrets and the one chosen to help her out. She saved her life and killed the Blooded.
Anja, happy to have been saved, impressed by the powers the Sid displayed easily accepted the idea to return with her to Yu-Shan. She learned about how the solars had ignored the wisdom of the Sidereals in the first age and what happened because of it. She quickly became indoctrinated into the sids views and took them for her own. She thinks that Sidereals are really a step above mortals, and most exalts. Her normal fight/flight instinct with regards to men is not really there with Sidereal men or gods. She still hates sex and all the sids know to not involve her in anything sexual. She is now a quiet girl, and stays in the area either in SDB's manse or close by it. She knows why the sids are watching her and want her help and accepts it.
She has been told she will be assigned to assist a circle of sids soon. She carefully fills out forms and gives them to SDB whenever she learns a new charm. SDB is a friend and a mentor, tutoring her in charms and many things.
- Loyal to the Sidereal cause any group of sidereals might find themselves having her tasked to help them in Creation. She can help out without needed sidereals from being pulled away from other assignments.
- Very careful propaganda has been used to convince her that the sidereals were right and the Ursupation was a necessary thing. It doesn't take though, and she tries to escape. Another group of solars might have to protect her, or sidereals to stop her from revealing what they have done and where they are.
- The nightmares have become to much for the poor girl. Dreams of the past and driven her to paranoia, desperation and taught her many things from half-remembered techniques of the first age. In the position she is in she can cause a great deal of chaos in heaven before someone figures out whats going on. Stopping a mad solar in Yu-Shan and repairing the damage is a worthy quest for anyone.
- Eventually develops the charm Master Has No Peer
