Anna Lee was the daughter of Ethan and part of the community of the Testament of the New Ezekiel at Temple Gate. She was raped and impregnated by Sullivan Knoth at fifteen years old, who later decreed that the child she was carrying was the Anti-Christ. She was to have her belly slit open and the child killed, but her father helps her escape by spinning stories and leading the cult members in circles. Anna Lee managed to escape the wilderness successfully. She made it to a hospital but was killed by Pauline Glick to prevent Murkoff's involvement in Temple Gate from going public. The circumstances of her fate piqued the curiosity of investigative reporters Lynn and Blake Langermann and ultimately resulted in the beginning of their investigation surrounding her death and the environment where she was found.
