Vasha is the companion of one of the junior ambassadors of South Africa, Sol Hertzog. It has been rumored that she is linked to one of the warlords from around Beaconsfield and that Sol may either have dealings with them or is owned by them. Whatever the case, Vasha seems nothing more than a kept woman on the arm of a spoiled rich man. His wife and children are very rarely in the picture.

History

Bekkersdal, a township of Afrikans formed during the gold rush of 1945. Laborers were sent to live in the shanty town, wages were so low that citizens were forced to stay due to the simple fact that they couldn't afford to go anywhere else. This was the world Vasha was born into. Born of mixed heritage, she was labeled colored as a baby due to the fact that her mother was not white. She was raised by her maternal grandparents who refused to speak of her father or allow her mother to speak of him as well.

Vasha was five years old when she stopped sleeping regularly. Instead, she would remain quiet until everyone in the house was asleep and then she would sneak out to the yard and play in the sand. it was during one such night, while Vasha was chasing a frog along a fence that soldiers of two warring lords held a firefight in the middle of her ghetto. To this day, Vasha's memory of that night is spotty. She was found that night by one of the soldiers, he was confused as to why a little white girl was walking in the middle of the Afrikans township and brought her home with him, fully intending to turn her over to the state. It didn't happen.

The soldier couldn't seem to shake the little girl. He dropped her off at the state office and the next morning she would be at his doorstep. Every night for two weeks this happened, until one day the soldier's warlord noticed he had a little tail in the form of a girl. Intrigued, he and his mistress took the child on and he began to watch her. Eventually he gave her his last name, Kruger, and she was officially adopted into his family. Over the years, her memory of her childhood faded and Jan Kruger and his mistress, Elsa Gersbach, became the only family she knew.

It didn't take Jan long to understand that his 'daughter' was something special, unusual. She didn't sleep for days on end, she could run farther than his most trained men, she was resistant to the heat of the midday sun when many others would wilt and faint. Seeing the potential, he began having her trained alongside the boys picked up from the townships. Vasha was like a robot, she obeyed orders without question and persisted in her tasks until they were completed, no matter how long they took.

TOP SECRET

EYES ONLY

In early 1996, it was authorized that the South African situation could be contained if Jan Kruger were eliminated and his militia crippled. To that end, Captain Kyle Porter was sent on a black bag campaign to destabilize the region, support and train local insurgents, [fragment obscured by bloodstain] and ultimately remove Kruger from power. Porter worked without tactical support for seven months before moving on Kruger. The assassination attempt was foiled by Kruger's daughter, and Captain Porter was forced to abandon his mission. Shortly after the incident Kruger put a death mark on Porter, necessiating a full withdrawl of all Agency resources from South Africa.

Since that time, Vasha has been hunting. Her quest has taken her to New York, on the arm of a bureaucratic fool who owed her father a favor. Now he owes her.

Personality

An initial impression of Vasha is that she has all the personality of a cold fish. She doesn't warm easily to people, though she is quite adept at small talk and social situations this is due to social training rather than by any natural charisma. She has a keen sense of devotion to duty, that duty is to her father, right and wrong have no place in her life, she does as her father tells her. Vasha doesn't have many friends, those she considers close to her are comrades in arms, other soldiers that have proven themselves loyal to herself and her adopted father.

She is easily frustrated by other people. Their emotions make her uncomfortable as she finds they have no place in her own world. She is straight forward and will do what is necessary to see her own ends come to fruition. Her own feelings and emotions are guarded as they have no place in where her duty lies.
