|“||"And since you bring it up... my name isn't really Anka. It's Kana. Kana the Honest."||”|
–Kana, Stormspeaker, page 175
Anka is introduced as a young Greencloak who makes her debut appearance in Heart of the Land. Her spirit animal is a chameleon, which allows her (and anyone she touches) to blend in with their surroundings.
In chapter 18 of Stormspeaker, Anka is revealed to be an Oathbound who was working as a spy within the group, using the name Anka as an alias. Her real name is Kana, her ironic Oathbound title being Kana the Honest. She also states that she was the founder of the Oathbound. Because she was not able to join the Zhongese military, Kana decided to create her own organization.
Anka has tan skin and short, dark hair, and brown eyes. Her chameleon tattoo wraps around her wrist like a bracelet.
Anka is Zhongese. However, she camouflages immediately when Toey is in active state.
In the Books
The Heroes of Erdas and the Greencloaks were betrayed by some of their newest recruits, who killed the Zhongese Emperor by ambush at the citadel. After Olvan is caught (he was bitten by Brunhild's stone viper), he gives Meilin an artifact which will allow them to uncover four hidden tokens, one each in Amaya, Zhong, Eura and Nilo, which can remind the world leaders that the Greencloaks have always been loyal to Erdas. As the Oathbound guards of the leaders follow them, they come face to face with Anka, who introduces herself to them as a Greencloak. When asked why she hadn't ever been seen anywhere with them, she explains that she was always out of the spotlight thanks to her chameleon's camouflaging. She helps them escape from the citadel and away, hiding them all while with her camouflaging powers. They are grateful to her and considers her the only thing prevents a certain imprisonment. They are relieved to have an older Greencloak travel with them, providing them with valuable guidance and a calm presence.
Anka continues to accompany the group to find the four gifts of Erdas. She begins taking sparring lessons from Meilin, and they become closer friends.
Anka and the Four Fallen journey to Nilo in order to find Stormspeaker. After Stormspeaker is found, Anka reveals herself to be associated with the Oathbound. She betrays the group and assists in taking them hostage.
