Anne Character Analysis

Anne is Rooke's younger sister. She and Rooke are very close, and Rooke enjoys her company because she's clever enough to understand some of his scientific or mathematical concepts. He thinks about her often in New South Wales, and thinks that Tagaran, though much younger, is a lot like Anne: both are curious and fearless.
