Anastasia is a seer, with the gift of clairvoyance.[1] She was taught something of how to use it by her grandmother, Baba.[1]

At the age of 14 she ran away from her home, the city of Târnăveni in order avoid an arranged marriage. [1]

In approximately 2003 (assumed, based on the clue of 'ten years ago' and the release of TSW in 2013) she was in northern India staying in an Ashram.[2]. She met an old woman there, who was also a seer, and became friends with her. The old woman had a vision of the wagon, the spirits that owned it, and knew that those spirits had selected Anastasia to be the wagon's next caretaker.[2]

Visions led Anastasia to the wagon, and she has been with it ever since. The wagon is at lest somewhat sentient, and is a huge storehouse of knowledge. Anastasia is able to understand it and acts as both its caretaker and an interpreter.

She has had a strong vision that prophecies: "on the day Owl and Eagle and Dragon soar together, and the Eye brings the Champions forward, the Dark Sovereign shall fall."[3]. She came back to her come country of Transylvania where she met the Romany and traveled with them to her current location. She knows this site is the location she is supposed to be in for both her vision and her Indian friend, and so she waits to see what occurs.[3]
