Game biography

Daughter of a worker in a large Soviet era arms plant, Yana became disgusted with how the modern weapons her father manufactured were used to control and oppress the Kazakh people. Fleeing to the wilderness Yana went rogue and learned to live in a traditional manner, hunting on horseback with bow and arrow. Unsatisfied with her role as a rural woman, Yana travelled back to civilisation and began working as an assassin based out of Ulaanbaatar. [1] She first appears in the Golden Rules story-line, when James Bond is forced to fight her in a gladiatorial death match. Gaining the upper-hand, he refuses to kill her, much to the spectators' disappointment. Bond encounters her once again after he is taken captive by Whar Zin's men. She relishes her opportunity to inflict pain on him, but the spy endures his sufferings and eventually overcomes her.

Noted for her strong misanthropy, she has no qualms about killing men in cold blood. She is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, archery and driving, and is multilingual, speaking Kazakh, Mongolian, English and Korean. The character offers a buff to the Finishing Move threshold during Conflicts and provides a +15 total defence bonus using hatchets and a 15% increase to critical hit damage using machetes. She is an 'uncommon agent' (green) and can be levelled to level 15.
