Anita first appeared in Legacy. She is the Captain of the Battersea pack and when she first appeared she was basically just the hard-nosed leader of the pack’s Guard unit. I had no clear idea of who she was or what was going to happen to her, or even what she looked like. She has variously been described as an Amazon, and as the kind of girl Conan would have drooled over, but I’ve never given a particularly good description of her. That seems a shame since she’s developed a boyfriend, three sisters, and far more of a personality over the course of the series.

So, I did what I usually do and built a model of her to see what I thought she really looked like. Then I can work a proper description into the rewrite of Legacy. I like the way she came out; she’s got all that suppressed power and she’s pretty good looking. So, I did a render of her on a visit to High Towers, sitting on the rug in front of the fire, as she often does when escorting Alexandra, her Alpha. Since she doesn’t usually wear clothes when she does that, the picture is after the cut.

I think there’s more to hear about Anita. I know there’s at least one story to tell about her and her family. Here’s to seeing more of Anita (in the literary sense, rather than the visual, since there’s not much left to see).

    • You were going for the Red Sonja look?
      I went with shorter hair because she’s a close-quarters fighter, a scrapper, and I felt that even though she mostly fights in fur, she would probably keep her hair shorter. Long hair is a positive disadvantage in a fight.
