Anastasia-L was a formerly deceased student from the Royal Akasha Academy known as the Saint of Revival, as well as the original Trinity Seven of Luxuria. After her resurrection, she participates in the Magic Research Battle along with her friend and partner, Arsha.
Anastasia-L is a sweet and kind young woman, able to charm and attract even Arata after only meeting one another for a relatively short amount of time. As such, she is normally seen almost always smiling, as well as behaving in a polite and friendly manner towards others, even to those who are cautious of her. In these situations, Anna has been shown to remain respectful and calm, although she can equally be just as confrontational on certain occasions as well. During her first encounter with Hijiri, in spite of their tense atmosphere, Anna would praise Hijiri for her devotion towards Arata. Even in unexpected events, she is generally remains amiable and relaxed, once becoming greatly amused after Arata surprisingly lost to Arin and Yui during the Magical Research Showdown. Furthermore, Anna can also be quite playful and affectionate, particularly Arata whom she calls her enemy despite treating him tenderly. She has been described by her best friend Ayesha to be very spiritual, having fallen in love with the world itself. As such, she is determined to protect the world, willing to disappear into the "world of demise" to avoid being erased so that she may stop the Demon Lord.
However, underneath her seemingly pure exterior, Anna has been shown to have a rather sinister side, becoming hostile and menacing almost instantly. This dark nature of hers would even cause Hijiri to become wary of her after witnessing her sudden change.
Anastasia-L is an attractive young woman with a modest figure and long dark hair that reaches her waist. Her hairstyle consists of a braided strand of hair on both sides each tied together with individual ribbons near the top.
Anna's main attire consists of her Royal Akasha Academy uniform which includes a white long sleeved cuffed blazer jacket with a dark short tie, and a dark plaid short skirt. Furthermore, she also wears a pantyhose and brown plaid penny loafers.
Magus Mode: Anastasia-L's Magus Mode consists of a black long sleeved cuffed blazer with a short tie, and a white short skirt.Additonally, her outfit includes a cape fastened by shoulder guards, metal gauntlets, and white thigh socks worn under thigh high leg warms and formal shoes.
Anastasia-L, a student Royal Akarsha Academy, successfully performs her Archive's Final Crest, Aeshma Deva and meeting the requirements for becoming a member of the Trinity Seven.
Afterwards, in class, Anna is approached by her best friend Ayesha who congratulates her for completing the Last Technical and reviving the Lost Thema, Terminus. Anna offers to buy Ayesha crepes although Ayesha insists that she should treat her.
Later, as the two are eating, Ayesha requests Anna that avoid disappearing from the world as the founder of her magic, Elemental Conductor, the Saint of Revival. Anna assures her friend that she will not use her Final Crest despite being the reincarnation of the Saint of Revival. Ayesha, assured by Anna's promise, then states her desire to succeed her mother as a Paladin regardless of the difficulty. She next asks Anna of her plans to search for the Demon Lord Candidate. Anna is unsure as according to Ayesha's mother, the headmaster of Akarsha, the world will end if the Trinity Seven meets the Demon Lord Candidate. Ayesha confirms her mother's statement, also adding that she wants to either kill or seal him. Anna, however, is unsure if she is alright with those actions since she considers him her soulmate. Ayesha then declares that the Demon Lord will surely fall in love with Anastasia and decide to not destroy the world for her. Anna becomes happy at the thought, wishfully desiring to meet the Demon Lord Candidate.
However, Anastasia is suddenly awakened one night when the spirits become disturbed before discovering a Breakdown from the Luxuria Archive. Heading outside while transforming into her Magus Mode, she meets with Ayesha until she abruptly experiences a strange feeling. A worried Ayesha then discovers that Anna is slowly disappearing. Anna quickly realizes that an existence similar to hers had arrived in their world, meaning that only one Trinity Seven of each Archive can exist in the world. As such, she will vanish from existence, however Ayesha refuses to accept her friend's fate. Likewise, Anastasia assures her that she will survive and protect the world from destruction by going into the "World of Demise" along with the Breakdown Phenomenon. Despite Ayesha's protest, Anna promises her that she will eventually return before the Demon Lord destroys the world. Ayesha sadly accepts, promising in return to become a Paladin in order to support her. After the two bid farewell, Anastasia performs her Final Crest, Aeshma Deva, and vanishes with the Breakdown Phenomenon into the Farthest Realm, the Library of Demise.
Seventeen years later, upon becoming a Paladin, Arsha would reunite with Anna's spirit after breaking the seal to the Library of Demise. Ana would then make one request to her friend to support her love which Arsha accepted.

As a result, she required the support of her spirits to maintain her form, although the duration she can remain is only several days.

Although, because of her Terminus Thema, the process failed and resulted in a Superbia and Luxuria Breakdown Phenomenon's to occur together, before causing Demise to course through her body, transforming her into a creature while corroding the world through her spirits.
