Ivanna Weitz, aka Tanya is a Shabak intelligence agent featured in the Free City of Krakow module.
Twilight 2000 1st edition canon Edit
Tanya is the professional name of a singer and exotic dancer who frequently appears as entertainment at Na Zdrowie. She has also been seen in the company of many of the rich and important people of Krakow, including Kutrzeba. She is a darkhaired, sultry beauty who may take an interest in at least one of the player characters.
Meeting Tanya: The characters may see her at Na Zdrowie, where she makes her living as a performer. After her act, she will approach the characters, ask for them to buy her a drink, and possibly take an interest in one of the group. She will use the relationship to try to gain information about them (as she does with all strangers in Krakow).
Referee's Notes: Tanya is a real surprise. Her real name is Ivanna Weitz and she is a member of Shabak , the Israeli intelligence organization. Shabak has heard rumors of Operation Reset and has assigned Tanya (who was in the area finishing up another assignment) to track down those rumors.
She will negotiate with the characters for the papers and offer them a reasonable price. If she finds she is in competition with the DIA, she will offer to pay for the opportunity to photograph the papers before they are turned over to Stark ("If he gets them, I don't mind...and he won't complain much if he finds out I have copies"). She can be trusted not to double-cross the characters after they conclude a deal, but she will steal the papers beforehand if given the chance.
Tanya has long been dodging the KGB in Krakow, who suspect she is a foreign agent. They have been watching her carefully, hoping she will one day lead them to other agents. They are unwilling to have her killed, since she may prove useful to them eventually.
If the characters demonstrate exceptional heroism and cunning during the adventure, she may offer them the chance to work with her against the KGB.
Her companion, Max Endelman, is a minor character who serves as a back-up gun on Tanya's missions. He is a German whom Tanya met and hired about a year ago, and has worked with her ever since. He is a fair piano player and works at Na Zdrowie as her accompanist.
