Ana Yanka, sometimes called Anya, does not have a defined persona. She has taken Duke Finvarr's advice to heart and opted not to constrain her interests to one time or place. She enjoys adopting Rus, Viking, Celt, Flemish, and Tudor modes of dress.
She is originally from the Kingdom of Atlantia and resided in Aethelmearc before moving to Ealdormere. She currently lives on the shore of Lake Huron within the Barony of Ramshaven.
In 2011, Ana Yanka attended Pennsic War as her first SCA event. The following Pennsic she met her wife, Mjoll Ulfsdottir. This subsequently led her to move to Ealdormere in 2015.
She received her Orion Award at Pennsic in 2018. In the same year she entered a portfolio of illuminations in the Queen's Prize Tournament. In 2019, she entered a series of illuminations in the Kingdom Arts & Sciences Competition.
Ana Yanka has also participated in the Trillium Exchange.
She is part of Fraken Kraken. At Pennsic in 2019, Fraken Kraken was placed on the Scroll of Honour for providing hospitality following the Woods Battle.
She has previously associated with Chaos House in Aethelmearc and Chez d'Argent in Atlantia.
It should be noted that Ana Yanka gets embarrassed by grand gestures and being called into court. She would prefer not to be the object of attention in a social gathering.
