Aasimar descendent of Lurue, the Unicorn goddess

Anastacia is unaware of it, but she is also descended from Sehanine Moonbow, elven goddess of death, dreams, and the moonShe takes much more from the Lurue lineage anyways.

Lurue (pronounced luh-RUE), also known as The Unicorn Queen, is a chaotic good goddess of intelligent and talking beasts. Lurue teaches that life is there to be lived, and one should live it with zest and flair. Adventures and quests should be taken on a whim and life should be filled with good times and laughter. She is worshiped by many unicorns, pegasi, and other intelligent non-humanoid creatures, as well as by romantic and swashbuckling adventurers. Although preferring adventure and exploration instead of battle, if forced into a fight she is an intractable foe.  [Lurue is a deity taken from Forgotten Realms, the Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting]

Further info on Lurue.

Dogma: The Unicorn is a symbol of hope, joy, salvation, and protection for the needy, forlorn, and forsaken. Life is to be relished and lived with laughter. Quests are to be taken on a dare and gifts are to be made on a whim. Impossible dreams are to be pursued for the sheer wonder of the possibility of their completion. Everyone, no matter how unique, is to be praised for their strengths and comforted in their weaknesses. Evil melts quickest in the face of a rapier wit and unshackled joy. Search for the unicorn and in the pursuit find happiness.

Abilities:  Anastacia does not have any real 'powers', even though she's descended from goddessees.  The closest she has to this is the ability to generate a small magical light around her or in the palm of her hand once a day.  She is also stronger than she looks, though it is not to superhuman proportions.  The most obvious sign that she has supernatural origins is that she possesses a remarkably inhuman beauty, grace, and bearing.  Her kind hearted nature gives her a diplomatic edge over people - most people tend to like her, so it's easy for her to talk them into doing things.  Luckily, she would never use this to manipulate anybody. 

**Important note:  In the canon from which Anastacia comes, our modern world exists parallel to a universe that is the Forgotten Realms campaign setting of D&D, replete with magic, monsters, elves and dwarves etc.  In the Urban Arcana setting, where Anastacia lives, at times holes in the fabric of reality open between the dimensions, dumping things from the magic world (or Shadow world), into our modern world.  These things include items, locations, people, and monsters.  People who make this trip, do not remember anything (or at least very little) about their former life.  Just what was very important to them - their name, their faith, etc.
