(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#20/1 (fb) - BTS) - Anna's parents were both killed when she was a baby, when Silver Sable's uncle Fritz disappeared. She was sent to live with Silver Sable, whom she called "aunt," but Sable sent her off to study in the USA, in an important and expensive school for girls.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#1) - Anna became a student at the Cranewood School for Girls in Northampton, Long Island.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#20/1 (fb) - BTS) - Anna followed her aunt's missions on the news. She learned about her meetings with Spider-Man and some of her preys, like Black Fox.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#1) - Anna, still a teenager and minor, was still at the Cranewood School. The school hosted many daughters of very important international political figures and for this reason it was chosen as target by the terrorists of Hydra.
    Anna, her classmate Sarah, and many students were taken as hostages by Dmitri Petrovich and his Hydra commando. Petrovich forwarded his demands to the world's governments to release 27 international criminals. Anna could do nothing while Sarah was slain before her eyes, only to prove to the police that Hydra meant business.
    Meanwhile, in Symkaria, Mortimer tried to convince Silver Sable to go to save her niece.
    Silver Sable left Symkaria on a solo mission to rescue Anna.
    In New York, Peter Parker changed into his Spider-Man costume and went to the rescue.
    Later, the Wild Pack's elite members left Symkaria to help Silver Sable.

    All these rescuers forced the Hydra agents into a precarious position. Anna insulted the terrorists, Petrovich took her as human shield while waiting for the unknown assailants. Anna managed to bite Petrovich's hand, then Silver Sable kicked him off into Sandman's grasp. The Hydra forces were captured.
    Anna embraced her aunt, crying but happy that Silver had come to rescue her. Anna wanted to go back to Symkaria. She was scolded by Sable, who ordered her to stay at the school, and to behave with the fine education that that place granted to her.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#19/1) - Anna went to the Symkarian Embassy in New York. She arrived during the events of the Siege of Darkness. There, she was welcomed by uncle Mortimer. When the mist of darkness was defeated by Ghost Rider and Doctor Strange, Silver Sable went back to the embassy and was surprised to find Anna there.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#20/1) - Sable had plans for the evening with Jacques Girard, so she ordered Anna to stay at the embassy. The Wild Pack also went out. Disappointed and sad, Anna went to the roof, and spotted someone sneaking into the embassy. The Black Fox wanted to steal some jewels. He managed to inject ether gas into the ventilation system, putting all the personnel unconscious. Only Anna was still awake.
    Anna recognized Black Fox. She took some special equipment from Sable's storage and snuck behind him. She surprised him. She also made good use of Sable's equipment against the old cat burglar, keeping him at bay for a while. She managed to set off the alarm. Eventually, she was apprehended by Black Fox, but he had to flee without taking any prize.
    When Sable came back to the embassy she found Anna restrained.

(Shadowland: Blood on the Streets#1 - BTS) - Years later, after the Hand constructed a base known as Shadowland in Hell's Kitchen, Anna was in a new expensive school, still paid by Silver Sable.

(Shadowland: Blood on the Streets#3) - Anna helped her aunt in a research about some murders of criminals, apparently executed by the Hand. Anna hacked into the NYPD archives and discovered that the victims had one thing in common, they all were cases where the criminals avoided incarceration but they all had been prosecuted by Lt. Rafael Scarfe's squad. Scarfe and his pals were the real killers.

Comments: Created by Gregory Wright, Steven Butler and James Sanders III.

    The identity of Anna's parents is unrevealed and the kinship link between her and Silver Sable and Mortimer is not clear. Anna spoke about Ernst and Fritz Sablinova as relatives (SSatWP#20) but not as her father. Even supposing that Anna's original surname was not Sablinova, Silver was her legal guardian. So, Silver could have lent the surname to baby Anna.
    My guess is that Anastasia and Mortimer had another sister or brother, and that Anna was her/his daughter. This would make Anna a cousin of Silver.
    An alternative would be that Silver had a brother or a sister, whose daughter was Anna, but it is unlikely. First, they would be mentioned somewhere in the stories; second, Ernst would be Anna's grandfather, and, from Anna's words with Black Fox, it doesn't seem at all that she was speaking of her grandfather.
    The best shot is that Anna was lying when telling Black Fox about her parents. Why would she lie? To distract him? To gain time? And how to tell that it was a lie? Because she said that her parents died when Fritz Sablinova disappeared. But Fritz disappeared years before Ernst "died," and when Fritz was captured by the Genesis Coalition, more years passed. Anna was too young to be that old.

sarah and annaSarah

    Sarah, a normal teenager girl, studied at the Cranewood School with other girls and with Anna.
She was randomly chosen by the terrorists of Hydra to make her an example of the strength of their statements. She was ruthlessly killed before the other girls' eyes; her body was thrown out of the window for the Police to see.
