Former IPL AdminAlso Known As:
Queen of Double Battle, Byzant's youngest sister Gender:
Anya, like her brother, can have a short fuse (especially in the tropical weather of Challenger Island), and can be provoked into a battle (although all challengers should beware). In normal conversation she is genial enough, and the time spent with Diantha has made her more diplomatic towards the press. She looks out for Kamata, remembering his relationship with Karine, but doesn't want to impose on him because of his usual introversion.History:
Born in the Orange Islands as the youngest child of four, Anya looked up to her brother and sisters as role models. Before GT Syn, she worked in the local Pokémon day care. When she heard that her brother had co-founded a trainer group with a couple of friends, she packed her things and travelled to meet them. Throughout their adventures, she slowly grew closer to Kamata because of his relationship with Karine. That took a hit when Karine died, but after Kamata came out of mourning and founded The-IPL
, Anya eagerly joined, hoping to assist while Kamata hired more admins. After Jo and Tofu became Admins, Anya slowly left the island and its responsibilities and returned to the Orange Islands to return to the daycare. She was back for a brief period during the Grand Tournament, but left after the scandal involving her brother and Angelus. She returned once more a few years later, and revealed that she had travelled to Kalos and become part of Diantha's entourage. Recently, she has elected to stay on Challenger Island and function as Kalos's liaison to the Archipelago.
Anya has a fearsome reputation in battle, and is known throughout elite battle circles as the Queen of Double Battle. Her battle style is unique, involving constant and relentless switching between her lineup. In action it appears as if Anya is juggling all six of the Poké Balls in the air. Her Pokémon might appear on the surface to be mediocre, but most if not all opponents are generally surprised when her team appears to be significantly stronger than the average of its type.Pokemon Info:Name:
