The world of Anastasia diverged from that of Greater History of Man in 1570 AD when an asteroid struck and plunged the world into an ice age. Most humans died, and while Russians were used to the cold and prepared for such weather, 90% of their population perished and they were on the cusp of extinction. Ivan the Terrible and his mages were able to save the country by combining humans with magical beasts, Ivan himself becoming the first.
All Yaga are humanoid animals. They refer to mages as Koldun.
- Ivan the Terrible
- Anastasia - When summoned into the Lostbelt by Kadoc Zemlupus, Anastasia gains the characteristics of a Yaga internally, but still retains her human appearance. This does not apply to Anastasia summoned by Chaldea.
