Anastasia Ma Xiu Yi
The youngest member of the the Ma family, Anastasia was chosen aged nine to be an Imperial Concubine. Ever since the Imperial Envoy delivered the news, she was isolated from the rest of the family and spent the next few years preparing to live on the the Throne Ship, where she now resides. She is Emperor Lin Heping‘s favourite concubine, as he finds her honesty, and the fact that she is not intimidated by royalty, refreshing and attractive. They often have long conversations, which last well into the night.
Anastasia rarely sees her family.
