Character Summary

Ananke is like an old man stuck in a little girl's body. She is a somewhat grumpy creature of habit, a workaholic, and kind of a stick in the mud. The only thing she really seems to have going for her is her job. Other than that, she tends to be a quiet sort of individual.

Character In-Depth

The first thing you'll notice about Ananke is that she tends to be quiet. Not the shy quiet of a little girl, either, or the stoic quiet of a stalwart adult. The creepy quiet. The deadly quiet. She can be silent as a dead body even when she moves, and only appears to make noise when she wants to.

When Ananke talks, you will hear the voice of a child, but she will not talk like any child you know.

Her demeanor, however, is still human in a relieving way. Unfitting her appearance, but still human. She's a serious person with little room for humor or tomfoolery, a being that just seems to go through the motions of life. It perhaps came from the circumstances of her birth; born of two demons that desperately wanted a child to raise, Ananke had taken the form of a child herself. A small body with short hair and a delicate frame. Her parents' desire was strong, and shaped her figure, but over time, after years of playing the part of their ward, her mind began to change. Began to grow older. She very slowly, very painfully separated from her longtime family, but it was eventually done.

Change is difficult for Ananke. It's a part of her nature. Although inside, she has grown a little, outwardly, she still retains a little girl's body. No more than four and a half feet high, with the same red eyes and short black hair she has always had. Having settled into the job of a sergeant, because there was a need for them in the city and because she seemed suited for it, Ananke lived the same routine for over fifty years. Sleep, but never dream. Work, but never prosper.

Then one day she received a phone call, and the Commissioner of the Legion offered her the position of Grootslang Captain. In such a way that she was not allowed to refuse.

The new ranking has put Ananke through no small amount of instability. Her schedule is a thing of the past. Employees need to be mobilized and organized, the Butcher is on the run, and instead of taking orders, the child-demon has been reduced to doling them out. Despite this, she insists on still doing at least some of the dirty work herself, even with the additional stress and the requirement of an adult form. It is no longer comfortable and monotonous like before, but Ananke's job is all she has, so why not stick through with it?

Sometimes, she wonders what it would be like to go through a different kind of change...

Demon Information

Ananke is a demon who rarely changes. She has been working for the Legion for decades because the pay is sufficient for her needs. She has been living in the same apartment because its size and amenities were perfectly serviceable. She has been the same size because being small has some surprising uses, and because she doesn't see the need to grow any taller or larger. She wears the same sturdy coats and skirts because buying new clothes would be senseless consumption. She appears human because there's no point in looking like anything but. She has been living the same life for decades.

She dislikes her job, or the thing it has become. But quitting is no more attractive than the prospect of staying, and so she stays.

One day she will not deem it so.
