Anactoria is a persuasive person. She is very manipulative and is a natural liar. She is intelligent and notices a lot, though doesn’t indicate that she does and uses it to benefit her later on.

History:
Anactoria was born in a coven of witches. The coven, known as The Coven of Salem had been around for generations. Their founders took over an abandoned town in a forest and since then the Coven has grown since then. Due to their closeness to the coast and a trading port, witches of all backgrounds found their way to the Coven, bringing with them their own practices, gods, and languages. The Coven was composed of mostly women, though there were very few men. A caravan of witches would often make the journey to the trading port to trade surplus, skills, and crafts. They captured or traded for slaves, preferring the Non-Luperci ones to transform them.

Anactoria was born to a woman named Lilura Cersine, the Queen of Witches and daughter to the Crone, Ajak. She was the only child in the Coven as the other witches were not allowed to bear children unless given the blessing of the Crone. Anactoria grew up surrounded by other witches, given only the best education and gifts the heir to the throne deserved. At the age of five months, she accidentally consumed mushrooms and had visions of the moon turning red and of blue eyes. The shock caused her to shift early. She came to in her Secui form in the healer’s den, crying about the blood moon and blue eyes to her Grandmother. Ajak told her to keep the dream a secret as it wouldn’t come true if others knew.

As she got older, she took the vision as a sign she would become queen one day, perhaps on the night of a blood moon. She trained hard for it. She learned what she could from anyone willing to teach her. She learned as much as she could to be worthy of the title of Queen. She found her love for crafting. She even purchased a Non-Luperci slave when she was a year and a half, transforming him with her blood. She thought with patience and hard work, she would become Queen and perhaps even Crone. She gained two crows named Heather and Saffron whom she trained to spy for her, learning Low-Speech and teaching them High-Speech.

When Anactoria was three, her mother bore another child on the night of a blood-red moon. A daughter with bewitching green eyes and of silver and red fur. It was rumored the girl’s father was one of the male warriors of the Coven, a powerful man named Dagon. The Crone declared that this child was the foretold heir apparent, claiming she had been the one to dream of a child born on a blood-red moon with green eyes. Anactoria was outraged, screaming that it had been her who dreamed of the blood moon and blue eyes opening. The Crone declared the former heiress a liar and claimed Anactoria was planning on usurping her mother tonight. Anactoria was exiled, taking what she could but having her slave taken from her.
