As of 4713 AR, Anastasia Nikolaevna is the fifteenth and current queen of Irrisen and the first non-winter witch to have held this office. She has adapted well to her new role as Irrisen's leader, despite hailing from a planet where magic is almost non-existent.[1]


Anastasia is the secret daughter of Tsarina Alexandra and Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin, and through her father, the granddaughter of Baba Yaga. Only her father knows the truth of Anastasia's parentage; historians of Earth record her as the legitimate daughter of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, Alexandra's husband, and Anastasia herself only knew Rasputin as a 'holy friend'.[2] As a member of the Russian royal family, she is also known as Anastasia Romanova, Anastasia Romanov, or more fully as Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova.[3]


In the Earth year AD 1918, after Anastasia and her family were executed by Russia's new Bolshevik government, Rasputin resurrected her from a lock of her hair to serve as a fail-safe in case he or his sister Elvanna failed in their plan to usurp their mother. He put Anastasia in a monastery within the Akuvskaya prison camp, from which she was later rescued by a band of adventurers from Golarion who sought to thwart Elvanna and Rasputin's plan.[2]

After these adventurers were successful, Baba Yaga accepted their request to crown Anastasia as Irrisen's new queen. The life of the common people of Irrisen knew a marked improvement in her first years of rule, yet many winter witches are resentful and regard her as the "Fraud Queen".[1]
