Tanya Engalychev is a member of the Anchorage Wards.
Tanya is perpetually scared and worried because of her circumstances.
Tanya is described as a thin, attractive young woman of Russian descent with Auburn hair. The use of her power leaves her skin blended with that of her target.
Abilities and Powers
Tanya has the ability to flay individuals of their skin with a touch. Once skin has been absorbed, she gains a permanent increase in her own strength and durability. She can run at great speeds by virtue of this natural strength. She can also alter the pigment of her skin to create patterns.
Her power is always active, and she instinctively reaches towards people when threatened to strengthen herself against possible attacks.
Her power didn't flay animals, or make her reflexively reach for them. 
Tanya has a long-term interest in fashion and could even design her own wards costume.
Tanya was smuggled into Anchorage from Russia under the belief that she had qualified to be a model, and triggered shortly thereafter. She was used as an unwilling enforcer for the Bratva. She would be forced to touch people and take away their skin. This usually caused the victim to die a slow painful death.
She was eventually able to escape and was able to hide out among the homeless in Anchorage.
The Anchorage PRT found her using Horizon's power and skills to figure out where she was from patterns in the use of her power. Auroch managed to persuade her to come live in the PRT headquarters for a while, although she remained somewhat paranoid that they would try to kidnap her. The two became friends.
Tanya was eventually incorporated into the local Wards team and would eventually take the name Vellum.
- Vellum is only named Vellum (a name suggested by Wedge, head of Anchorage PRT Marketing,) in PRT Quest, and has not officially received this name in canon given the nature of PRT Quest. The final name was to be voted on later; Vellum is used here for ease of reference.
