-
 
+
-
Anna was born in the mid 16th century to a Spanish mother and Italian father. The youngest of seven and the only daughter, her early life on the olive plantation just outside of the ancient city of Syracuse was one marked of memories running among the Greek and Roman amphitheaters and learning to beat up her older brothers.
+
-
 
+
-
After her father's death while she was still young, her mother sent her to live with her wealthy paternal uncle on the mainland in Naples in hopes of Anna becoming more educated, and the opportunity to be successfully married to a Spanish nobleman with access to a larger dowry. Unfortunately, education proved to be more of a curse than a blessing, and Anna found herself engrossed in the classics while working in the offices of her uncle's shipping company in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. After turning down several profitable marriage proposals, her uncle saw in her a better businessperson than noblewoman, and gave her the ship, ''La Delfina Nera'' (the ''Black Dolphin''), to sponsor and run as her own corner of his larger conglomerate.

-
Disagreeing with the tribute demanded by the Spanish crown for them to continue to operate out of Naples, the Dauzzano clan packed up and relocated to Venice, which gave them greater access to the Eastern Mediterranean and the goods coming off of the Silk Road. Anna, along with her brother, Maximo, took ''La Delfina Nera'' and another ship, the ''Giovanni'', to the island of Cyprus to be more strategically placed for trade with the Ottoman Empire out of Constantinople. This is a dangerous place to be, as the Ottomans continually press the Venetian merchants and shippers on the island, and threaten invasion.

-
 
+
-
Because of Anna's standing as an unmarried businesswoman rather than a wife and mother, she is often under attack by speculations of being a heretic and witch, though she has yet to be brought before the Inquisition. The often-unorthodox trade tactics of the Black Dolphin are also constantly under scrutiny, and Anna and her crew have been branded as pirates by the Spanish and Ottomans.

-
In her daily life, Anna balances the ledger, takes inventory, and enjoys wearing the fashionable and more comfortable clothing of fine ladies in Constantinople compared to the stiff, carded bodices and heavy skirts of the West. "Pants make it possible."

== About ''La Delfina Nera'' ==
+
-
 
+
-
''La Delfina Nera'', otherwise known to English speakers as ''The Black Dolphin'', is a Genoese Carrack constructed for the Dauzzano Shipping Company in their earlier days. Due to its age, the ship is constantly being patched and repaired, so, to cover the tar on the exterior of the hull, the ship maintains a solid black wash at all times.
