Anika was born in Berlin, Germany to Adala Faust and Poseidon on December 3, 1996. She stayed in Berlin for a couple of years until her mother decided to move to America. They took most of the journey by ship because Adala knew Poseidon would give them safe passage to America. They arrived in the harbor of Long Island Sound, New York almost half a year after they left Germany. Anika was 6 at the time. Adala prayed to Poseidon to help her get settled in the new country, so Poseidon made a house on the beach for Adala and Anika to live in. Adala collected shells along the shoreline and created small trinkets and souvenirs for tourists to earn money. Anika went to a small school nearby the beach. She was shunned by most of the children because she didn’t speak English well. She was also ignored because of her dyslexia and ADHD. But fortunately for her, there was another boy who had ADHD and dyslexia.
His name was Connor and he was a child of Ares (unknown to both at the time). Anika and Connor became close friends as they grew older. They’d always hang out at the beach, in town, or at each other's houses. One day when they were 13, they were walking along a deserted part of the shore when they were claimed. A boar’s head above Connor and a trident over Anika. They stared in disbelief at the signs above their heads until a sea monster came swimming towards them. They began running back to Anika’s house hoping that the monster wouldn’t follow them. Anika’s mother after seeing the monster quickly explained to the children that they were demigods and that the Greek myths were real. She quickly herded the children out and as soon as they were out the door, the house collapsed from the monster’s beatings with Adala still inside. Connor had to pull Anika away as she tried to dig through the rubble to find her mother. The monster caught up to them and dragged them into the sea.
Connor drowned much to Anika’s grief. Anika, filled with strength from the water and anger from the death of her mother and friend, began to fight the sea monster. The sea monster, unknown to the fact that she is a child of Poseidon, dragged her to the bottom of the ocean. She slammed her elbow into its eyes and it roared and let go of her. Anika began to swim away when she saw a gleaming metal buried under the sand. She quickly dug it up, revealing a set of 2 bronze sais. She picked them up as the monster lunged at her She stabbed the sai into the monsters hide, making it explode into golden dust. Anika tucked the sai into the waistband of her pants and went back to her demolished house to mourn the deaths of Connor and Adala. Having know idea what to do, Anika prayed to Poseidon to help her. She felt something pulling her back towards the ocean, so she went back in the water. As she swam deeper, a school of fish was waiting for her. She was shocked that she could understand them talking to her and telling her to follow them. Anika followed the fish a short way to the shores of Camp Half-Blood where she was placed in the Poseidon Cabin.
Anika is very shy, introverted and silent, especially after the tragic death of her mother and her closest friend. Once you can gain her trust and become her friend, she can become rather dependent of you. However, she tends to especially close up her heart and stay away from love. Anika is vulnerable and very emotional. Her passions are photography, music (in particular, playing the keyboard) and painting. She isn't the best in combat, but can put up a good fight.
Anika is a 5'2, 100 lbs German female. She has a white, soft skin tone, blue eyes (which at times appear light and at others dark) and chestnut brown hair. Her body build is nimble and light.
