Tanya was born on January 24, 1927 to Ivan Stepanov and Ira Petrova. She lived in Soviet Russia in her small home in Moscow, Russia. It wasn't until 1944 that anything really happened. In 1944, during the Second World War, while firing at German air-planes with an Anti-Aircraft gun, she was hit by a German bomb and was severely injured. Artemis, seeing that she was dying, intervened and turned Tanya into a Hunter. Ever since, she has served Artemis loyally.
She is a kind person usually with a heart open to all and she is very loyal to those whom she cares. However, she can also be extremely ruthless. She is devoted to the Hunters of Artemis and has never even talked to a single boy, except for her father. She considers anyone who betrays the Hunters a traitor who deserves to die.
She has a spear named Gervasios (Γερβάσιος) which contains electricity, deeming it an electrical spear. She has a sword named MIECZYSŁAW (Meaning sword of glory) which she had gotten from her father as an heirloom. She also has a standard silver bow and silver arrows.
