Those who want to deny the world must have once embraced what they now set on fire.

Dr. D'Breliven is a professional, recently based out of Portland, Oregon, however she travels broadly. The good doctor is a licensed psychiatrist and counselor who specializes in working with people who are in situations of high trauma, such as police officers, medical personnel, veterans, and ex-cons. Additionally she frequently is doing charity counseling on the side. She does some advising to the police and is useful for giving insight into criminals, as well as being a calming influence.
She joined the Accord about four years ago and had been a member of the Gate Keepers. However, her interests and skills do not lie primarily in dealing with the Underworld, and Dr. D'Breliven did not stay in the division, though she is on good terms with it. She is listed as available medical personnel for the Accord. Dr D'Breliven's primary contribution to the Accord is to provide safe counseling and assistance to members, so that they can receive care for the sanity damaging trauma that they may undergo, without the risk of exposing their mental health care providers to the Truth.

Anya is a Torn Reaper and generally avoids working with the Underworld other than to help ghosts to pass on, specifically the ghosts of those whom she has been involved in killing. She was shot to death by a patient in her last year of Medical school, but has had little to do with the larger Sin-Eater community, generally interacting with others on an individual basis.
She is not a member of a krewe.
Her keys are: Passion, Stigmata, and Pyre-Flame
Her geist is The Betrayed, and is observable as sparks and tongues of blue, purple, and dark red fire flickering around her.
Due to her experiences with assisting ghosts to pass on, Anya is convinced of the existence of heaven, and that it is available to the righteous and the wicked alike. She trusts in the mercy and justice of the divine, and seeks to reduce the suffering in this world by removing or repairing the people who perpetrate it. That the Truth prevents souls from passing into the hands of the divine is a source of great frustration and rage for the reaper.
Quotes by Dr. D'Breliven
"It wasn't your fault. None of this was ever your fault. I am sorry that you are the one who will suffer for it."
"War is one of the worst things that humans can do to each other. War takes lives, ruins livelihoods, wrecks families... it leaves scars across this world and every other, and all too often the people most hurt by the war were the ones who had the least say in whether it should happen. So do not speak to me of 'Just Wars,' for there is no such thing."
"Someday you will learn that when ever you say, 'You have the power to stop this!' that it applies to you as well."
"I used to think that it was my job to keep everyone alive. It isn't. Some times, people are better off dead. The key is to give them permission to let go."
Protect the Innocent. Punish the Guilty. They all are Guilty. Burn Them, burn them all
