The work was difficult, but since she put her heart into it, she excelled.
When on the run, she did whatever Martin deemed necessary for them to learn/do. There was nervous anticipation and some resentment there, as she was good at some of the things requested of her, but not others. She’d rather be at college or roadtripping.
As it is now, she spends her days training and traversing around to globe to carry out what missions are given to her by Randal. She gets there by car/plane/walking/train/whatever.

She likes Subway, Greek restaurants, Starbucks, and the like. Who prepared the meal would vary, as well as the company. TV and conversation would usually happen during the meal, and again, who cleaned up would vary.

She usually sleeps alone at varying times, but usually before one in the morning. She’ll listen to music and let that lull her to sleep. She rarely dreams, but when she does, they’re a combination of imaginative, ridiculous, and scary. She does have some recurring dreams, but those are very rare. She usually sleeps like a log, being able to sleep through fireworks, screaming, banging, and the like. She usually sleeps on her back or curled up on her side.

Food Preferences: She likes vegetables, specifically carrots, green beans, and zucchini, and most fruits - bananas, pineapples, raspberries, mangos most of all. She prefers lean meats, and thus (shocking!) is not that big of a fan of bacon. She doesn't like greasy foods or things that are too rich.

She doesn’t hesitate to give him guilt trips about that and laces her words with cleverly hidden insults and accusations.
Mum: Again, she’ll ask her for advice about music stuffs, but doesn’t say anything about her personal life, since whenever she tried, her mother was usually distracted and brushed her off.

How would they teach someone about the birds and the bees? Bluntly, without bothering to censor anything.
Do they stand up for what they believe in? Oh, yes.
What brings them the most joy? Music and seeing her friends happy.
Short term goals: Get her memories back; accomplish the tasks set to her by Randal; become a better fighter.
Long term goals: See a world of equality; make up for her wrongs, mend relationships.
Does s/he plan to achieve these goals, or does s/he think they're unrealistic? She thinks some are unrealistic at the moment, but can be accomplished centuries in the future, but also plans to achieve others.
Will others be affected? If yes, does it matter to the character? Yes, and yes.

Groups or Alone: She likes being in groups, but much prefers being alone when she wants to think.
Leader or Follower: A little bit of both, it depends on the situation and the people.
Planned Out or Spontaneous: Again, a mix. However, if it's for something serious, she very much prefers planned out.
Journal Entries (do they keep one?): Not really. She does have a tumblr which she'll put personal posts on, but she isn't very consistent with it.
What Excites Them: Going to/performing in a concert; discovering cool facts; taking risks.
Pet Peeves: She hates it when things are disorganized, and when people use incorrect grammar. She has a particular loathing of 'txt talk'. And she likes things to be cleancleanclean and neatneatneat. (*cough*perfectionist*cough*) She finds chipped nailpolish to be aggravating.
Prejudices: Singers who use Auto-tune; 'miracles'; people who she thinks don't try hard enough.
Stressors: Multiple people talking at once, noise when she's trying to focus on something, people who don't listen, people who repeat themselves.
Obsessions: Music, swimming. Getting good grades. Pirates of the Caribbean, Supernatural.
As Seen By Others: Others view her as pretty, athletic, fairly kind, compassionate, resourceful, good moral values, talented, and intelligent, but she can be annoying, stubborn, hold grudges over ridiculous things, condescending, and sarcastic. The sarcasm can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how much it is so and who's it with. Her sense of humor is such that some find her mildly creepy. She can be aloof, and very suspicious. She's very secure in who she is, and comfortable with that, confident. She enjoys pestering others. When she does something wrong, and she knows or finds out that it was so, she has no qualms about giving straightforward apologies, whether in public or not. She knows when to press if something's wrong and when to back down. She can be both withdrawn and wildly free. All-in-all, an interesting girl who can be both mature for her age and immature, but caring, once you get past the cold front she puts up for those she isn't sure whether to trust or not.
As Seen By Self: She knows that she's smart, pretty, fit, and talented, and this can lend her a share of arrogance, and she knows that too. If she thinks something's wrong, she'll either press or not, but still try to find ways to help, convinced that she can find a way to make it at least a bit better. She likes fixing things, solving mysteries. If she puts up a cold front and then finds out that the person she was freezing out is actually pretty cool, she'll turn around and kill 'em with kindness to make up for it. She gets annoyed with some of the grudges she holds and both wishes that at times she could be more trusting and less so. She's confident in herself and doesn't try to hide who she is to fit in. She thinks that she's pretty nice, but knows full well how she can get on other people's nerves.

Western Astrological Sign: Gemini.
Traits Associated with Western Sign: Intelligent, graceful, clever. Can get very stressed/nervous. Can look at people through different eyes, and can see something to appreciate in almost everyone. She needs to know things; she's passionate; she searches for mental stimulation and likes being challenged. She doesn't mind being asked to do something, but generally gets a bit withdrawn/rebellious when told to, depending on the nature of the command. She's hard to get to know initially, but softens up. She can be reserved about how she feels. She's a risk-taker. She can be very demanding. She can be slow to reveal feelings for a guy, almost playing them, but she's evaluating whether he's worth her time and attention. She very rarely truly opens up, and if she does, it's because she trusts you, and doesn't want to rick being deceived or hurt. She's adaptable.

Fairly cheerful and energetic, she has quite a few friends, although she only really counts a few of them as true, close friends.

She's curious and thirsty for knowledge, loves to absorb facts and information. She's inventive when tackling tricky situations (rather than playing the hooker required for a mission, she flirted, got the guy in the room, then threatened him with a gun and used her singing to get the required money). She's loyal and devoted to her friends. She's ardent and passionate.

Random Facts and Anecdotes and Conversations
* Caffeine makes her sleepy.
* She once went with Felix to a prison-turned-museum where the most violent criminals in the country were held. They thought it would be creepy in a fun way. There was a feature where volunteers could see what it was like in what had been the most secured cells to see what it was like, and would be locked in for a few minutes. They were completely soundproof, pitch black, and decidedly disturbing. It'd mess with your mind. It would feel as if all of those criminals, they were right there, with you. Taunting you, ghosting right behind and around you, whispering things that couldn't be made out. Ana volunteered and thus was born her fear of being alone in dark places.
* Facebook status: 'Got hit on by zombies at the park today... So, that's cool, I guess.'
* She has a strange love of sitting and lying down on top of cars, especially while listening to music.
* FB status: 'Someone come and be my cuddle buddy, please, and thank you.'
* FB status: 'My cat slept with me last night and apparently thought it'd be cool to say thank you by bringing me half a bleeding bat. In my room. Awesome.'
* She loves winter, as long as she gets to stay indoors with hot chocolate and hoodies and things. If she has to venture out into the snow, it's the worst thing to happen to the earth. Growing up in places where it's generally 70 degrees all the time = cannot deal with sub-forty temperatures.
* Her father being atheist and her mother pagan, she didn't celebrate Christmas as a child. After meeting Felix in seventh grade, he invited her to come to his house for the holiday. She found it interesting and lovely and celebrated it with them each year after that.
* If she got a grade below A, even an A-, it warranted the same freak-out and breakdown that getting an F would have.
* "I, Anatalia Artemis Savalas, solemnly swear to you, Katherine Megan Hours, to pretend to be your lesbian lover if ever you are hit on by a guy you do not like, and in turn, you shall do the same for me."
* Joshua Martinez: Why am I holding Eric's stick?
Eric Muller: Heh. Oh, that comment....
Anatalia Savalas: Geez, Josh, lay off.
Katherine Hours: omg
Hayley Sanswood: Why am I the stick...?
Anatalia Savalas: Oh, so now Josh is holding Hayley's stick. I see how it is.
Hayley Sanswood: WHAT?!!?!...I am going to hurt you for that, Ana.
Anatalia Savalas: Oh, you wish you could.
Hayley Sanswood: I know I could.
Anatalia Savalas: I know that you know that you, my dear, are so woefully wrong. You can slap, but I've beaten you like FIVE TIMES already. I think that proves my point.
Hayley Sanswood: You have not beaten me merely.... Um.... iforgotthewordack D: And yes, I guess I am a good slapper.
Anatalia Savalas: Completely conquered you? Yes. Yes, I have. Do you not remember those times I had your arm twisted behind your back and you were all hunched over going, "Ok, ok, I get it, we're done, let me go, ok, pleeeeeeaseeee let go, ow, ok, I get it, stop?"
Hayley Sanswood: Yes, because it HURTS when people do that. D: THat's not fighitng, Ana.O:<
Anatalia Savalas: *That's *fighting It so is. Much more so than slapping. Slapping is for GIRLS.
Hayley Sanswood: ...we are girls?
Anatalia Savalas: No, we are young ladies. Do not let them hear you speak that word or they shall descend upon us with all their condescension and sexism and the like! The horror!
Hayley Sanswood: Oh. I see. That's good, I suppose. I can't fight to save my life anyways. o.o
Anatalia Savalas: Neither can I... I can just do the twisting arms behind backs thing.
Felix van Mason: holy crap, you guys. I've got like a million notifications from this thing. Take your fight about fighting elsewhere!
Hayley Sanswood: neeeeeevaaaaahhhhhh (:<
