Anastasia Hoshin (アナスタシア・ホーシン) is the head of the Hoshin Trading Company and a candidate to become the 42nd King of Lugnica. Her knight is Julius Juukulius.
Anastasia is a petite woman with blue green eyes and long, wavy purple hair that extends to her hips. She wears a long white dress with a fur hat and scarf along with a large purse shaped like a wallet. She also wears a star-shaped hairpin on her hair. She is described to have cute looks and an aura similar to a small animal.
Anastasia has a crafty personality, always putting herself first, even admitting herself that she was greedy, her greed stemming from the fact that she was an orphan. She speaks with a Kansai dialect. She likes it when people benefit when she benefits, though despite her faults, she is actually sympathetic and has a strong sense of duty. She also loves food like okonomiyaki and is mentioned to be a real liquor lover.
Currently Anastasia's body is being controlled by the Artificial Spirit Echidna as she is unable to leave her body for an unknown reason.
Anastasia was an orphan as her parents died. Later on, she came to work for the Ryuushika Business Association, during which she voiced her opinion concerning a small business deal, earning her work. Eventually, she bought the company with her amassed wealth and renamed it into the Hoshin Trading Company. Looking to expand into the Lugnica market, she was in the middle of talks with the Juukulius family when it was discovered that she was eligible to participate in the royal election.
- Defective Gate: According to the Artificial Spirit Echidna, Anastasia's gate is unable to absorb mana from the atmosphere properly, causing her to be chronically mana deficient.
Skilled Businesswoman: Anastasia is extremely skilled at business, having worked her way up from nothing to being the president of a prominent trading company. Her skill is mentioned to be natural.
Artificial Spirit (人工精霊 Jinkou Seirei): Anastasia isn't contracted with the Artificial Spirit Echidna, however the two get along quite well, with Echidna showing an interest in her. The two have been together for eleven years and her existence was kept secret even to Julius and the members of the Fang of Iron until Arc 5.
Equipment: During the trip to the Pleiades Watchtower, Anastasia is shown to use a thick knife as a means to defend herself. However, as it is mentioned that the knife was part of their emergency bag and that her Artificial Spirit was possessing her, it is unknown if she normally uses any weapon at all.
