Anansi, also possibly known as Nancy,[1] is a character designed by Thomas Astruc who may appear in Season 2. Thomas posted preliminary sketches of her on his Twitter on August 13, 2016.[2]


Physical appearance

Anansi seems rather muscular, and her hair appears to be in dreadlocks tied back into a ponytail.

Civilian attire

One preliminary sketch of Anansi showed her wearing orange shorts, white sneakers with blue socks and what appear to be shin guards, and a small blue shirt with a small spider drawn on the left side. Another preliminary sketch showed the spider design covering her whole shirt, which suggests that she may have an alternate form as a hero or villain. In one sketch, her name was shown printed on her belt as "Anansi" and in another sketch as "Nancy". One sketch showed no spider design, and featured stars on her shorts.


  • Anansi's name comes from the African folktale character of the same name.
    • In African folktales, Anansi often takes the shape of a spider, and is considered to be the spirit of all knowledge of stories.
  • Anansi's existence was first teased in an earlier tweet by Thomas Astruc, where he asked the question, "Afraid of spiders?"[3]
