So.. it occured to me that Anna quite possibly could be Lady Alvane (and possibly Saga?)

 

We know, that Anna probably knows Kian Alvane intimately. If they were married (making her Lady Alvane), that would definitly explain that.

 

Since The house of all Worlds is removed from time, Anna could easily have known Kian for years (in the house), before traveling back to regular time in book 2.

 

That also expalins why Anna "ambushes" (as Kian puts it) the guy with the kiss. (She has been intimate with him for years, and it could be almost out of habbit)

 

Wild speculation:

If Lady Alvane, Saga and Anna are the same, then that would lead pretty nicely to Anna being the third playable character (since we aready played Saga).

 

Thoughts?

I concur. :)

 

This would also mean that "Anna" could just as easily travel to Stark. Possibly with Kian in tow? :D

I will just post a quote of what I wrote in the April thread regarding Anna, and how she sound like she is being voiced by Sarah to me. :P 

 

You sure it wasn't Sarah voicing Anna? I could have sworn it was her while putting on an accent. Maybe it's just my brain playing tricks, that is a well known thing to happen in humans. 

 

The hints are there though, she knew Kian. She could see through his veil, yet he didn't know her. To me it sounds as if situation from Dreamfall between him and April is reversed, in Dreamfall he felt he knew April. Anna appears to know him and it sounds like she has known him for a long time, and I would say she knows him for longer than one human life time. I say that both Kian and April are never dying spirits, who are reborn every time their mortal body dies. Each incarnation awakens at some point and realises their nature, and gains memories of the previous lives. Just like the white kin told Saga, she will see with different eyes.

 

I think April had to die because she failed to awaken and remember and so a reset button was pressed. Anna might be a past incarnation of April, if HoAW is really present outside time she could in theory have traveled to it and traveled to the future. So the Kian she is so fond of is not ''her'' Kian, but a future incarnation of her beloved.

 

Sorry I just went Doctor Who on ya'll.

 

Wild theory, I am guessing Ragnar and Co. have something much better up their sleeves. There is more questions than answers yet again, but somehow I am not mad, I guess the story is so amazing it balances out. I just hope that it doesn't end up like Mass Effect did, where the build up was so great the conclusion couldn't live up to it. 

 
So yeah I agree that this may be the case. The way she says she's been burned before (Trust issues, sounds very much like April) and the she can trust Kian. It implies they have a deep relationship of some sort which Kian is unaware of. She is also not in support of the rebels but not exactly against them, sounds like April who followed advice and learned her lessons from Dreamfall. She gave up on her holy crusade (which she used as a smoke screen for the pain and her lack of will to live) but she didn't suddenly switch sides.

I had similar thoughts. I'll enjoy seeing how it plays out.
(I chose to kiss her. I think Kian needs a little lovin'.)

I also thought about the voice actor for a moment, but I didn't think it sounded like April at all. :)

I'm not sure if there's any connection to April there, but it is quite possible since there are *implied* connections beween both April/Saga and April/Lady Alvane.

At the start of Book Two we have confirmation that April Ryan is reborn. The question is if Anna really ties into this?

Hey now, a choice is good, but my Kian isn't a two-timer or polygamist.

Didn't Book 2 reveal Kian is a virgin? I figure Anna would be most suited to teach him some things.

It didn't outright say so I think, but it did heavily imply it. Enu did say she'd been with many men though. Just pointing that out :P

April Ryan is my friend,
Every sorrow she can mend.
When I visit her dark realm,
Does it simply overwhelm.

Nah, he does seem like a one-woman-guy - if at that. ;)

Surprised ppl have not yet started analyzing the tattoo on her left calf. Azadi designs? She could be another street urchin from Sadir who knew Kian in the past even though she isn't Azadi herself. There's likely ppl from all over Arcadia there. And then there's the crest on her breastplate...

I think we need a thorough full body inspection in book 3 to put any speculation to rest. :P

I thought while playing that Hanna looked a lot like Saga.

I wonder if there is a link between Hanna and Anna. They both have the same name and red hair.

I got April vibes from Anna.

April and Hanna seem to have a similar personal story (hard childhood, orphans) and the picture of the mountains in Hanna's nest is where April's journey begins in TLJ ("Draic Kin's nest"). I suppose it's not a coincidence.

Yeah. Anna - Hannah, both red hairs, TLJ pictures in Hannah's lair, Hannah relation to Queenie and Quennie can be Kin, April was upset to Zoe in Dreamfall - Hannah was upset to Zoe in Book Two.

Anna <==> Hannah

 

I like the idea of a girl that has to hide and is an underdog in one world is an awsome and mysterious woman in the other world.

 

Maybe in her dreams? Or she is another sort of shifter changing her body during a shift?

Unfortunately that's the story of revenge. It's messy. Never really works out the way you want it to.

I have just met Anna in my second walkthrough. She said to Kian: "I have as many names as I have friends. And enemies." April does have many names (from the Wiki):

 

April Bandu-Embata
Kan-ang-la
Raven
The Scorpion
Waterstiller
A Wave
Windbringer

See...I'm having this issue. 

 

I'm really not sure I buy that she's Saga (yet). Some things aren't adding up in my mind. Though that may be addressed in the future. 

 

That being said, I kept running into this odd possibly graphical glitch where it looked like she had a suspicious blue streak in her hair.  :mellow:
