Anya Forger is the deuteragonist of the SPY x FAMILY series. Formerly known as Test Subject "007", she is a telepath whose abilities were created in an experiment conducted by an unknown organization. She is a student in Cecile Hall at Eden Academy and the adopted daughter of Loid and Yor Forger. Anya is a short young girl with fair skin and green eyes. Loid describes her as appearing about four to five years old at the oldest. Her green eyes are large and oval-shaped with prominent eyelashes. She has shoulder-length, light pink hair that curls inwards with a fringe that reaches just above her eyes and a small strand of ahoge at the top of her head. Anya is noticeably shorter than most of her peers, and many of the insults that Damian and his friends target her small size. However, in Damian's view, she gains a prettier appearance. When Loid met Anya for the first time in the orphanage, she wore a simple black dress with a white ribbon at the front, along with white folded-down socks and black shoes. She also wears two black hair ornaments with bright yellow embellishments resembling small horns on the sides of her head. Anya is never seen with her hair ornaments off, even wearing them to sleep. At Eden Academy, Anya wears the standard uniform with white knee-high socks and black Mary Janes. She carries around a brown schoolbag with a sheep keychain attached. During physical education class, Anya ties her hair back with a red headband when wearing the school gym uniform, along with white socks and white gym shoes. When she was younger, her hair was slightly shorter, and she did not wear her horn-like hair ornaments, instead tying her hair into small buns at the sides of her head. She also wore clothing that resembled scrubs. As a young child, Anya is very impressionable towards the people around her. For instance, reading Loid's mind and attempting to mimic him, and learning how to punch from Yor. Given her telepathic ability, which ostracized her from people and her many foster homes, she instantly took to "Twilight" for being a real spy. Since being adopted, she wanted to go wherever Loid was going in hopes of seeing the spy stuff she always sees on TV. However, after the events of Chapter 1, she has learned of the harshness of espionage and does her best not to interfere with Loid's spy work. Despite this, Anya enjoys spy cartoons, her favorite being Spy Wars, and is often seen watching it whenever she can. Anya also finds excitement in Loid and Yor's secret jobs and identities. Anya is quite clever, being able to spell long words by herself and helping Loid out as best she can, even nudging Loid and Yor together. Anya's behavior portrays her as younger than the age she initially claimed to be, which is around 6 years old. In reality, she is likely 4 or 5 years old, as she pretended to be 6 after reading Loid's mind and realizing he needed a 6-year-old child. Loid, being supernaturally astute, had initially estimated her age to be younger than six. Anya's demeanor reflects her young age, as she is gregarious, trusting, simple-minded, and easily distracted. She may not fully grasp the bigger picture or see the grand scheme of things, which is typical for children her age. Anya, like many young children, is self-centered and unaware of how her actions affect others. She opposes Nightfall as her "mother" due to the fear of becoming an honor student through harsh methods. She is impulsive, breaking rules for excitement, and easily changes plans for personal gains, such as treats or awards. This is not to say she is narcissistic as it is common for young children to not be able to fully consider others at such a young age. Despite this, she is not unintelligent or narcissistic; rather, it is common for young kids not to consider others' needs at such an early age. Given her likely younger age, it is remarkable that Anya can keep up with an advanced curriculum designed for older children. While some may perceive her as intellectually lacking for a six-year-old, she is most likely a highly gifted, talented and precocious young girl, showcasing impressive abilities for her age. Anya is shown to understand complex certain situations and what solutions are necessary but not the more abstract parts of it. For example, she comes up with clever plans to befriend Damian in order to help Loid's mission, such as helping him with an art project or using her dog Bond as bait for an invitation to his house after reading his mind and learning he loves dogs; however, she fails to realize that her lack of art of skills was not only not helping him but actually making him hate her more, or that a kid that has repeatedly expressed his intense disdain for her would effortlessly become her best friend because they both have dogs. Anya's primary flaw lies in her inability to see the bigger picture, often fixating only on immediate desires or goals. Despite her strong desire to assist Loid with his mission and excel academically, she consistently neglects her studies and fails to grasp how her impulsive actions may be perceived by others or their long-term consequences. Anya's tendency to keep her telepathy hidden stems from both orders by the facility's doctors and fear of social rejection. This fear contributes to her inclination to act without considering the broader implications of her actions. One notable example of her shortsightedness is her failure to realize that revealing her ability to Loid would be of great help to him. Additionally, after learning about Loid's dangerous spy mission to prevent a world-threatening situation, Anya eagerly accepts the opportunity without fully understanding the potential risks and dangers involved. Despite her flaws, Anya's intentions are often driven by a genuine desire to assist others, even if she lacks the ability to see the larger consequences of her choices. Anya's upbringing in the unknown facility has left her with significant abandonment issues, driving her desperate desire for a loving family. This motivation leads her to assist Loid and Yor in maintaining their family bond. She is emotionally affected by the fear of being replaced or left behind, and the potential revelation of family secrets causes her distress. Also, the subject of her "real" mother is a sensitive and emotional topic for her, evoking tears when brought up. Anya's aversion to studying arises from being compelled to focus on honing her special "gift" during her time there. She most notably has a problem of relying on reading other people's minds for answers then actually studying the material, which comes back to bite her when she reads the wrong answers. However, despite enduring difficulties in the facility, Anya remains relatively persistent, diligent and optimistic. Anya's ability to read minds has its advantages, enabling her to form deep connections with others, as demonstrated by her ability to calm a distressed cow and save a drowning child. But it also poses challenges, as she instinctively reacts to thoughts she telepathically picks up which often makes her seem eccentric and unhinged. Besides, Anya relies too much on her "gift" and can hardly function without it. Her lack of situational awareness and social skills also makes matters worse, leading to erratic behavior and conflicts with her peers. Nonetheless, she displays a kind and empathetic side despite these struggles. However, Anya is not above being a little cocky. She is quick to show off when she does something remarkable, like when she earned a Stella Star and wore it on her uniform so everyone could see it. That said, it is understandable due to her being a child. One of her most remarkable traits is that she does everything she can to help Loid in his mission to prevent a war and "achieve world peace," although in a childlike and innocent way. As such, she puts all her effort into getting close to Damian Desmond to help Loid accomplish his mission. Anya is often seen creating "plans" that might help her get along with him.
