Trudy once revealed that her and Sharon's criminal mastermind mother didn't trust men and populated her "inner circle" with trusted, highly loyal young women. Although there is a lot of "churn" within this group, she also stated that if "someone were to show a high level of initiative", they might work their way up to the top.
"Anna" is as close to the top as one could get. As Esther Matusevitch's chief lieutenant, she is second command within the matron's criminal empire. She has been know to pose as Elsbeth Diederich (one of Matusevitch's aliases) to throw investigators off their tracks and occasionally pretend to be her daughter. She is highly intelligent, extremely business-like and professional, and often stoic and expressionless. She is a very analytical thinker and tends to thoroughly assess every situation before choosing to act. Although she obviously has little qualms with white collar crime, she abhors violence and wants little to do with those who use it.
It is uncertain where Anna and her employer currently stand in their shaky alliance with the Colonel. During "Masquerade", we learn that Lakatos Pharmaceuticals is a front for Matusevitch's current operation and that she is in league with the Colonel and his mysterious plans to "forcibly induct" small business owners into his organization. When Nick and Trudy escape indoctrination and flee the Lakatos resort, the Colonel's men pursue until the pair crash their car and are taken to a nearby hospital. When the Colonel proposes assassinating the pair, Matusevitch balks. The Colonel orders the Lakatos resort burned to the ground, leaving the fate of Lakatos, Matusevitch, and Anna up in the air.
