Personality: Annushka is a porcelain doll automaton from the pre-revolutionary Russian Empire. How she works exactly is unknown, but it’s theorized that it’s either through magic, upgraded technology throughout the century, or that she’s possessed by a ghost. Which one of these is true is up to interpretation. She comes to live by winding up the key in her back; this was inspired by the Italian ballet “Coppélia”. Overall, she’s a doll designed for both opera singing and ballet dancing.
Due to being created a long time ago, she has a rather old-fashioned personality. She believes in traditional gender roles and interactions and does not tolerate people who don’t groom themselves well. She also is a strong believer in chastity.
Despite her haughty personality, however, she does mean well and can be a good friend and advisor. She is good friends with Hanami, with whom Annushka has a surprising amount in common, even if she sometimes comments on Hanami’s way of dress.
