Tanya Assenova Nakova is a character from Defenders of Earth. She is a Bulgarian criminal who is a member of the Bulgarian Vixens, the Bulgarian branch of a much larger criminal organization known as the Eastern Vixens.
She is a twenty four year old Bulgarian woman with fair skin, brown hair tied in a French twist in a similar fashion to fellow Vixen Bogdana Buneva but it is not tied quite as tight as to give her a Croydon facelift or a headache. Tanya also has brown eyes and normally wears a black PVC catsuit with a zip on the front that extends up to her neck which effectively encases her body in PVC.
It is not just Tanya's body that is covered because her hands are covered with arm length gloves and her feet are covered by black boots that are actually made of leather.
Alongside a few other Vixens, Tanya has a huge sense of arrogance and this is largely down to her managing to steal several jewels and pieces of gold and get away with it. Not in the same way that other Vixens such as Borislava Ilseva manage to get away with theirs but like a few others, Tanya is very single minded and is prepared to do anything to keep herself and her allies safe from harm and she managed to do this by framing another criminal for a crime they didn't even commit.
Tanya is first shown alongside her fellow Vixens at the Falcon Sanctum awaiting the arrival of Stanislava Blagoeva. When she arrives, Tanya follows the Vixens in placing their hands on their hearts as a sign of respect but when Blagoeva arrives, she is in no mood for respect and decides to get down to business.
As a result, Tanya is among the first of a group of Vixens depicted in Stranger of the Past to be named and described as she is described in Part 4 after Stanislava checks the loot of Tsvetanka Zhelyaskova. When asked, Tanya reveals a huge amount of gold and jewels and proudly explains that she got away with it by framing a fellow criminal.
Alongside the other Vixens, Tanya watches the other Vixens reveal their loot and is one of the Vixens who puts themselves forward to steal from a fire breathing dragon known as Firroth who is rumored to live in the Bulgarian mountains and guard a hoard of gold which the Vixens are going to steal in an effort to become even richer.
With the other Vixens, Tanya is shown at the Falcon Sanctum after being forced undercover thanks to Firroth in Stranger of the Past and while Bogdana moans about being forced undercover and the fact they cannot return to their glory days, it is Tanya who complains about being sent in the dining room for seemingly no reason thanks to Stanislava.
Ultimately however, the Vixen listens intently to the instructions given to the women and is one of nine to be selected to go out of Bulgaria instantly. Once the briefing is over, Tanya is sent away to change and pack her bags alongside the other Vixens in the room and within an hour, she is one of many Vixens who is changed with their bags packed ready to leave Bulgaria and is one of those Vixens to board the truck to leave Bulgaria immediately to Sofia International Airport instead of going to Burgas.
Within hours, the Vixen's location is revealed as Russia and it is also the location of other Eastern women which are the other branches of the Eastern Vixens; it is also in Russia where Tanya among the other Vixens in Stanislava's group are reunited and at the end of the story, Tanya is among the Vixens cheering for war on PHANTOM.
