Detective Biography

I’d thought it was the opportunity of a lifetime. Oh, I know I’ve come so far from where I’ve been, but… Imagine, me, little Anikka Sevine, the little girl from Queens, hanging out with a Prince.

Back in the day, I’d gone directly from high school graduation to my new job at the newspaper. They’d tried to put me with the society editor, but that had only lasted a few days. My boss had picked up on the slightest breath of a delicious scandal, and I’d dug deeper than my peers. Deep enough to find the ugly truth, save a society girl’s reputation, and have a dirty cop locked away.

I was wasted on the society desk, and they knew it. So I’d gone to work the crime beat, with the big boys. They gave me a little respect – standing up to and exposing a dirty cop is a dangerous undertaking – and I turned out to be pretty good at my job.

Too good.

That’s how I ended up doing work as a private detective. Doing that work is how I ended up at Big Lucy's Cabaret. And being there is how I ended up running an agency with Breitkat. Being good on the crime beat was just a precursor to being a good detective. It doesn’t always make the cops happy, but they don’t hang around Big Lucy’s; the Mayor does, and he doesn’t want ‘em there.

Maybe that's why the Cabaret is my home away from home; and Home is my suite at the Agency.

Poor Momma, poor Daddy; they don't understand the world I'm a part of, and they don't understand how or why I can be a part of it. They know I help people - that's what they hold on to, to keep from dragging me home, as if they could keep me there.

My brothers, well... Billy and Rick think it's great that their big sister does "all kinds of neat detective stuff". They don't really understand what's involved. Sometimes, it's your soul.

Kevin, though... he gets it. He should get it, he's a cop. He knows.And even if he didn't know, that's okay - he accepts me the way I am, and always has. What else are big brothers for?

But he'll never believe me when I tell him about the Prince!
