Demeanor: Always ready with a comeback or a snappy reply, her wit is sharp and her tongue sharper, despite her sarcastic attitude and absolute lack of manners, she tends to mean it all in good fun.
Nature: Anna has had a rough life, and to make up for it she hides behind sarcasm and being rude. Deep down she just wants to be accepted and have friends who won't use her. She is a naturally curious and intelligent girl, with a great mind for puzzles.
Description: Her natural form is a tall (6'2") , some what lanky girl with pale, almost rubbery looking skin. Her eyes are pale blue and watery, lending her an almost teary look even when she's nowhere near crying. Her hair is very long and jet black, going down to her mid thigh when braided, which it almost always is. She /never/ wears makeup. As for clothes, her style varies drastically from one day to the next, but one thing remains the same, she always wears two plain rings on a thin cord around her neck, one is gold, the other silver.

Some assembly required - 3: Anna can detach a number of body parts equal to the power+tier. These body parts retain full functionality and give Anna a psychic sense of the world around them as if she were hearing, seeing, smelling, and touching it. The body part has full functionality when removed and can reattach to her body at any time.
Rubber base - 3: She can change herself into any form she chooses, animate or inanimate, color, texture, even vocal tone, her body is entirely mutable. The size and complexity of the form that she takes would depend on a roll of power+tier. She cannot take a form with less than roughly 1/4th her total mass.

Anna was born to Kiera, and Joseph Watson, a pair of brilliant scientists living in LA. She had two brothers John and Mark and a sister Emily. The Watson family was pretty happy all things considered. Around Anna's 6th birthday something happened. She was walking home from school with her 17 year old brother John when they saw a firetruck pass by, followed by an ambulance. Both of which were heading in the direction of their home. John picked her up and started running home as fast as he could and when they arrived the scene was already over.
Their house lay in charred ruins, pieces all over almost a 100 yard radius. The bodies of her parents, Mark, and Emily were found inside. The Watson house had been bombed.
Her parents had been working on an alternative fuel to gasoline, in fact the fuel source they had been working on could be synthesized from chlorophyll, a chemical found in all green plants. This fuel was more efficient, cleaner, and much cheaper to make than gasoline and would work in engines that ran on gas now. They had almost been ready to reveal their project to the media when someone found out what they were doing and how successful it was. This person had a lot of stock in the oil business so a cheap, easy, clean alternative to oil was a large threat to their fortune, it was an easy matter to arrange a 'gas leak' in the Watson home, and a 'lab accident' at their workplace, wiping their breakthrough off of the face of the earth. This left Anna and John alone in the world.
John was able to file for emancipation and became a legal adult in the eyes of the law, to keep his sister out of foster care he ended up adopting her and taking care of her. After that she lived with her brother, he took care of her but life was tough for a single, 17 year old dad with no high school diploma in LA. They ended up having to live in a run down apartment in a rough part of the city. John worked three jobs and was almost never home. Leaving Anna to fend mostly for herself, she got herself to school and took care of herself when she got home. At around 13 she started falling into a bad crowd. She ended up skipping school to hang out with them and they asked her for help sometimes, she was just a kid so cops didn't notice her like they would the rest of the gang. After a few years running with them she was a quite accomplished little thief, and her brother was worried for her. He tried to get Anna to stop hanging out with her street friends but with no success, she loved her brother, but the thrill, the challenge of breaking into a place was something that she didn't think she'd be able to give up.
At the age of 16 it happened. She broke into a fancy lab downtown. The heist had been planned for months and everything was going smoothly, she'd got a bunch of expensive computer equipment and small items from around the lab when she entered a room that contained the animal test subjects, rats mostly. The product that was being tested on these rats was some kind of experimental rejuvenating skin cream. One of the rats bit her, and the cream got into the wound. The cream somehow reacted with her specific DNA and she felt her body shifting. Something strange was happening to her. She got out as fast as she could and got home. The next day was when she discovered her powers. Two months after that a pamphlet for Fifth Sanctum appeared in the mail and she decided that she wanted to go and see what the school was all about.
