Anna Amador is an attractive, tremendously fit woman in her early thirties with warm brown eyes and thick shoulder length brown hair she often wears in a bun or a pony tail. Standing 5’ 5", she is usually found wearing women’s suits with low heeled boots that allow her to more easily run and kick. Her most common piece of jewelry is a 70s era gold watch that has been resized to fit her right wrist, an heirloom from her grandfather.
Not every path to the Bureau of Paranormal Affairs leads through the gates of law enforcement. Case in point, Anna Amador had been a graduate student at Arizona State (Go Sun Devils!) specializing in Elvish studies (Arizona State had formed one of the largest programs of its kind in The United States), when her professor, Aster Bracken, was asked to consult on an archeological dig in Montana that implied there might have been an Elvish presence on Earth far earlier than the Elves had suggested. Anna was asked to come along to assist and she eagerly did so. What occurred was an adventure involving the awakening of what Anna termed an “ancient Elf clockwork murderbot” that went berserk and proceeded to attempt to kill everyone on site. Fortunately regulations required the Bureau of Paranormal Affairs have a presence at the dig and they engaged the robot long enough to allow innocents to escape. While this was going on Amador assisted Professor Bracken in deciphering pages from the “instruction manual” that was key in allowing the BPA agents in destroying the construct.
During he debriefing Amador was shown video of herself and Bracken and how cool under pressure she had been, and her intuitive grasp of Elvish that had been key in saving the day. She was met by BPA head Matthew Pathkiller who suggested she might fit in as a BPA agent. Anna was intrigued and decided to take Pathkiller up on his offer. After a grueling training process she found herself his protege.
Amador is fluent in Spanish, Portugese, French (Formal, Quebec and Louisiana patois), and both high and low Elvish as well as conversant in Hebrew, Arabic and Farsi. A talented amateur actor, she is able to skillfully mimic almost any American accent from Boston to South Texas. She is skilled in the use of many conventional and unconventional firearms and took to the martial art Krav Maga as if she was born to it and has augmented her fighting style with kick boxing. She is an effective combat driver, able to drive both stick and automatic automobiles, motorcycles, as well as flying cycles and cars. In her spare time she has pursued a law degree from the University of Michigan, focusing on paranormal law.
Anna is highly intelligent and insightful, a woman who loves a challenge be it a physical contest or an intellectual puzzle. While she sometimes chafes at the current assignment as Pathkiller’s shadow she realizes he is grooming her for bigger things, exposing her to the political realities of the job. She has become good friends with Pathkiller’s wife, Sarah Griffith Pathkiller, and has several times headed up security details for their children.
