No World For Tomorrow - Scion
Annaleisa had come to the belief that no matter how she tried to avoid it, escaping the forces of fate was an impossible task. This had led her to become rather resigned and doubtful in her general attitude towards most all who would approached her before the band appeared in Wolfsheim.

Background: Annaleisa was a young girl traveling abroad before college. She had decided she wanted to see more of Europe in an attempt to “find herself” before committing to serious study at the University in her home town of Dortmund, Germany.

No matter what she tried, she somehow could not leave the town. Time passed and Annaleisa became resigned to the fact that forces beyond her control would always shape her life.
