Anna's story begins in WWII when a japanese pilot named Kudusai Ichinohei crash landed in Russia. Kudusai met a kindly Russian woman named Tasha. She lived on a farm with her infant daughter Anna. Although their initial meeting did not go so well, he eventually gained her trust. She helped him gather enough equipment so he could repair his plane and go home. They were found out by Russian soldiers and attacked just before he could leave. Tasha was shot in the skirmish. She begged Kudusai to take her daughter with him. The pilot raised her as his own right beside his son Shoji.
Kudasai eventually reestablished his clan, leading them to the forefront of ninja-dom, with Anna as his star pupil. She rose to prominence as "The Red Ninja", and was easily considered one of the best in the world. One day an exterminator named Bob Feeple came to the compound to get rid of a major rat problem. Anna was just leaving weapons practice when their eyes met and it was love at first sight.
Unfortunately, she couldn't just leave the clan. Special arrangements had to be made. It was then decided that her first born son would be married to the clan leader's granddaughter, Itchy Koo Ichinohei. Several months later Jeremy Feeple was born.
