8 facts about my girl Nadia Rubanova:
1. Nadia was named after Nadia la Arwall, the main character of the anime series The Secret of Blue Water (1990-1991), and Natalia Fyodorovna Simonova from the James Bond film Goldeneye (1995).
2. Nadia’s appearance was inspired by Taylor Swift and Emma Watson, the latter being my vision for her voice.
3. Nadia’s hair is parted on her right side, and falls to chest-length in the back. She likes to hang parts of it over her breasts.
4. In Moscow, Nadia’s home is in the Arbat District. Example: [link]
5. Nadia was trained at the Soviet State Psychic Academy outside Moscow. Should I ever get to depict it, the academy would be designed after the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius monastery in Sergiev Posad, Russia ([link]).
6. Nadia performs as a fortune-teller under the name “Princess Ruby” (Russian: Принцесса Рубина, Printsessa Rubina). Whilst her readings are true, their true purpose is to secretly identify dissidents via mind-reading, who would later be arrested by the KGB.
7. I had originally envisioned Nadia as a secondary protagonist alongside Thomas Wolfram, or a previous iteration thereof, but felt her backstory was more interesting, so I made her the main character. Plus, the world could use more female-led-but-not-necessarily-feminine stories.
8. Nadia has taken up gymnastics for physical training and as a hobby. Her best and favourite apparatus is the balance beam.
