Anna might be considered the archetypical beautiful spy. She knows that she is extremely attractive and knows how to use the beauty. She uses her beauty and charisma in order to persuade those whom she needs something from. Often, one will never even know what she manages to get from them.
This is not to say that she is not skilled in other areas. She is skilled in martial arts as well as being and is a computer expert, able to fly helicopters, and is skilled with a number of weapons rivaling most soldiers. One should never consider her your classic blond no matter how good looking she is. She hates it when her bosses consider her that way.
Now, she does prefer that her own actions go as unnoticed as possible. This does not mean that she does not expect her seniors recognize what she does but she wants as few as possible outside her organization to notice. If at all possible, she prefers to work things in a subtle manner when dealing with a problem. Also prefers generally to not start conflicts and her martial arts training reflects that. Even though trained in a wide variety of weapons, she also generally only carries a pistol.
Surprisingly for somebody as attractive as her and for one that works in intelligence, she is still a generally good person. She has a strong code of conduct of things she will do and will not do. She does not like to break the rules any more than needed. As well, she has a genuine good heart.

Anne was born in a reasonably well to do but not truly wealthy family in Austria. From an early age, everybody remarked at just how beautiful she was. In addition, she had a charisma about her and was extremely popular. She was a member of a number of different clubs in school and was one of those that got invited to every party there was.
As far as actual grades, it was a slightly different story. One cannot say that she did badly but definitely did not stand out to the same level. Did however do well enough for university. There she decided that she would learn music and languages.
Many people suggested that she might get into modeling or possibly acting. She did have many boyfriends over the years and was suggested often that she would find an especially wealthy one to marry. With her looks, she would have fit the trophy wife or even mistress quite well.
Interestingly though, that was not what she really was interested in. She wanted something more although she was not sure exactly what. How does one become a intelligence operative after all. There are a number of intelligence agencies in Austria including the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz und Terrorismusbekämpfung (BVT) and the Landesamt für Verfassungsschutz und Terrorismusbekämpfung (LVT). Both are mostly dealing with terrorism. There is also the Heeresnachrichtenamt (HNA), which does military intelligence.
In addition, there is an intelligence service that does more covert missions. While they do work with the other Austrian intelligence services, they work extremely hard to stay off the radar. They were looking for possible recruits to work in the world of rich and famous, somebody who could fit into that social circle. They were able to somehow find out about her and decided to try to recruit her. Hard to know why she accepted. Maybe she was just bored with the social life she normally lead. She certainly had not thought about joining intelligence before this.
After she accepted, she was sent through intensive training. First thing she was sent through was basic military training. That was an extremely unpleasant experience because she was never one to like the mud and dirt. She also learned how to operate helicopters including combat helicopters. Never really knew how to defend herself either so she was sent for intensive martial arts training. It is a quite effective martial art because it allows one to start from not even looking ready for combat. Still, it is quite practical otherwise.
Of course the art of intelligence operations was an important part of her training. One has to be taught what one has to look for and a good understanding of surveillance. She went through a crash course in computer systems and how to hack into them. As well, part of her training was both how to protect people and how to assassinate them. While trained on the combat rifle during army training and also taught the submachine-gun during intelligence training, where she really shines was with the pistol. She seemed to prefer it over other weapons due to being far easier to conceal. Still, she was no slouch with the other weapons she learned.
On completing training, she was set up in effectively what is a jet setting life style. One of her first missions was to spy on a wealthy businessman thought to have connections with Russian crime and a potential threat to the country. It required quite a while to manage to get into his social circle, all the while posing to be an aspiring model. Eventually though, she was able to get the information which was needed.
Her second job was acting as a bodyguard. She posed as an ambassador’s assistants, mostly one who just deals with the huge amount of paperwork that goes with an embassy. In this case, she posed as being pretty mousy. There was intelligence however that the ambassador was under threat to cause a diplomatic incident. While his normal security detail had been beefed up, they wanted somebody who might not be expected. There was an ambush and all of his normal security detail were killed, leaving only her to protect him. Luckily, she was able to hold off the attackers until help was able to arrive and managed to kill a number of the assailants.
