Anna was a technician at the Severnaya facility and friend to Natalya Simonova, a level two programmer who worked on the GoldenEye satellites' guidance systems. She didn't like Boris Grishenko because of his perverse behaviour, especially when she saw a perverted picture of herself on Natalya's computer screen, saying that he "wouldn't know a woman if one came up and sat on his head".
Anna was killed by Janus Syndicate assassin Xenia Onatopp along with everyone else in the facility (with the exception of Natalya and Boris). After they leave, Natalya emerges from her hiding place and respectfully covers Anna's body with a sheet before escaping the facility. Anna was avenged after Onatopp was killed by James Bond in Cuba.
