Aniki Forfrysning (b. ca. 227/228 HE) accompanied Rosto and Kora to Tortall from Scanra, presumably to see if they could make a place for themselves in the Court of the Rogue. It's implied in the book that she, Kora and Rosto were a threesome, but Kora paired up with Ersken Westover and the status of Aniki and Rosto's relationship is unknown.

She's a skilled swordswoman; according to Pierce, she had to remove a section of the book where Aniki and Lady Sabine discuss armories and swords. The conversation was prompted by Lady Sabine hearing Aniki draw her weapon and guessing the make of the sword based on the sound.

Aniki appears in Terrier and Bloodhound, although she plays a much bigger part in the first novel. She might also appear in the last installment of the Provost's Dog trilogy, Mastiff.

Biography

Aniki, originally Scanran, comes to Corus together with Kora and Rosto in late March of 246 HE. Their reasons for this might have been that they wanted to raise in the Court of the Rogue of Corus and that live in Tortall was more comfortable than in Scanra, where people were short on food.[1] Obviously they didn't live long in any place for quite a while before they arrive at Corus[2]. All three of them move into the same lodging house as Rebakah Cooper; Aniki occupies rooms on the same landing as Beka's.

She quickly forms ties with the local Court of the Rogue, hiring on with Dawull[3], the Rogue's chief of Waterfront District, shortly after their arrival. She doesn't need long to get promoted by Dawull from an extra sword to his personal guard and Beka suspects that this promotion might have been achieved by killing someone or even several persons[4]. However, she quits Dawull a month after she joined his men, on May 9, 246 HE, when he tries to command her and some of his other people to attack the Rogue, instead of challenging and fighting Deerborn himself.[5]

In Bloodhound, it is revealed that with Rosto the Rogue, she is a chieftain. Little is said of her, though Ersken says near the end of the book that she has gained a new sword and is enamored with it.

Personality and traits

Aniki is protective of her friends and hates child-killers, as evidenced by the fact that she willingly helps Beka Cooper and her Dogs with a stakeout and information gathering. She doesn't like slaves, especially child slaves, either.[1] Which might just be because they didn't have them in Scanra or have some deeper reason, but there is not much detail known concerning the reasons for Aniki's dislike for child slaves and child-killers.

She and her companions don't think highly of the current king of the Court of the Rogue, as he cares more about keeping his money and his throne than caring for the people of his city.

"We've been on the road too long. I'd like to settle here and have a cat. Maybe I'll steal this one."
—Aniki refering to Pounce the morning she moved into Beka's lodging house[src]

She also has a particular soft spot for cats, picking up Pounce and swinging him around pretty much every time she sees him. In early May of 246 HE, Pounce gives her a kitten of her own—presumably to keep her from manhandling him. The kitten is black with a white bib. She names him "Laddybuck". Before, Laddybuck has been a street kitten.[6]

Physical description

Aniki is tall and blond. Beka describes her as being bigger than herself (or Koramin Kora), who is five feet eight inches (5'8") tall. She is normally wearing men's clothes and a sword.[7] Aniki's eyes are blue[8].
