Princess Anevka Sturmvoraus is the daughter of the late Prince Aaronev Sturmvoraus and sister to ruling Prince Tarvek. Some time before she is encountered by Agatha Heterodyne, Anevka was exposed to the Geisterdamen's Holy Machine by her father, in hopes that she would be the vessel to bring The Other/Lucrezia Mongfish back to Europa.
Unlike many of the girls subjected to the machine, she was not killed immediately, but began dying by inches. Her brother, a brilliant Spark himself, created a clank body for his sister after reverse-engineering Tinka, a van Rijn Muse kidnapped from Master Payne's Circus of Adventure while they were playing in Sturmhalten. The clank body maneuvered with limited freedom at the end of a set of tether cables, which connected it to the physically-enfeebled Anevka encased safely in a large jar-like support container. While this lectica had steampipes and therefore had some internal power source, it was not capable of travelling on its own and needs a set of bearers. Through the cables (possibly partial pneumatic engineering), the princess was able to use her avatar to perceive, interact and even communicate with the world almost normally.
Slowly, the clank Anevka became more and more self-aware as the organic Anevka weakened further and finally died inside her support container. By then, the organic princess's influence had become so feeble, her doppleganger never noticed. She only discovered the truth when she became no longer useful to her 'brother's' larger-scale plans, just before he deactivated her.
The transferral of consciousness raises questions about how clank brains are constructed, and how the van Rijn Muses gained their own powerful personalities. Also, would the organic Anevka have become as power-hungry as the clank Anevka in the sequence of events leading up to theon Sturmhalten? Or was this a form of moral corruption from lack of organic chemical influences (i.e., any possible feelings of compassion or mercy)?
Currently, Anevka's head and presumably her consciousness lie dormant on a shelf somewhere in the bowels of the castle in Sturmhalten - unless it was destroyed along with Tarvek's lab when Dingbot Prime . Her body has been appropriated by Lucrezia Mongfish, and has disappeared with the Geisterdamen through the maze of tunnels under the town.
