Pat Pflieger explains Anasta.
"one of several Mary Sues I created as a young teenager. Her father was human; her mother came from a slightly cat-like, nomadic race evolving on a chilly planet. She was created for the world of Star Trek, but moved into a science fiction novel I abandoned about a year later. Blairy Sue, the term may not be general, but it's too good not to use. My characterization comes from several Internet stories pointed out to me, most notably "Love and Guns" NOTE: This story is rated NC-17; please don't go there if you're under age 18 or will be offended."
