Akuma

Nora Césaire[1][2] is Alya's older sister and a kickboxer. In "Anansi", she is akumatized by Hawk Moth into Anansi, a spider-themed supervillain, when Alya refuses to listen to her overprotective advice.

Appearance

Physical appearance

Nora is brown-skinned and muscular with golden brown hair. Her hair is tied into a ponytail. Nora's left eyebrow has what appears to be a scar going through it.

Civilian attire

Nora wears a yellow cropped tank top with white edges with a black spider design on the front. White bandages wrap around her hands and wrists, and she wears black elbows pads. She also wears yellow shorts, which have a white upper band with the word "Anansi" written black capital letters on the front and two horizontal black lines wrapping around the rest, two black downward-bent lines on each side of the shorts, and white edges of the shorts' legs. Beneath her shorts are black short leggings.

As Anansi

Anansi has dark skin and yellow hair braided into a spiky ponytail. She has six eyes and they are white and are outlined in black. Her costume is black with yellow stripes. A black and yellow spider design is on her chest. She has six arms.

Personality

Nora is strong and caring but also somewhat overprotective, especially when it comes to her family, believing only strength is needed to carry you through. She is also very confident in her fighting abilities and has little regards for superheroes, doubting they'll always be around to save everyone when there's danger. She also calls Alya's friends by nicknames, like calling Nino "Cappie." Once she calms down, Nora can be humble when admitting defeat.

As Anansi, she is overconfident in her fighting abilities, believing it will always end in one punch and underestimates her opponents, whether it's civilians or superheroes. When angered, she is easily distracted and can lose her cool.

Relationships

Alya Césaire

Nora cares deeply about her younger sister, but sometimes that care leads her to be overly protective. She displays a great amount of concern for Alya's safety since she has been in direct danger from past akumatized villains and even tries to forbid her from going to the ferris wheel with her friends out of fear that an akumatized villain might attack her.

As Anansi, she does everything in her power to try and show Alya how dangerous Paris can be.

Nino Lahiffe

When Nino tells Nora that he can protect Alya from danger, Nora laughs at him, believing that he is incapable of such a thing, though she does allow him to arm wrestle her to prove his worth. Though he wins the match (thanks to Marinette's help, unbeknowest to her), Nora insists that he cheated, finding it hard to believe that Nino could beat her. However, after being deakumatized, she apologizes for overreacting and spends time with him and the others at the ice rink. 

As Anansi, she constantly taunts him calling him weak. She even toys with him when he fights her using Cat Noir's staff but is angered when he lands a hit on her face. 

Abilities

As a civilian

Nora does kick boxing. She is very fit and strong, easily able to defeat others in arm wrestling unless tricked.

As Anansi

Anansi has every ability of a spider that includes webbing and wall climbing. Because she is spider-themed, she has six arms and two legs. She also has immense strength.

Trivia

  • Nora's stage name and akumatized form, "Anansi", 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.
  • Her character was officially introduced after Thomas Astruc designed her character and posted preliminary sketches of her on his Twitter on August 13, 2016.[3][4]
  • Nora's existence was first teased in an earlier tweet by Thomas Astruc, where he asked the question, "Afraid of spiders?", foreshadowing Nora's spider-themed akumatized form.[5]
  • On a computer screen in a photo of production by Jeremy Zag on his Instagram, there is an unfinished reference model of Nora's civilian form.[6]
  • Thomas considers Nora his "favorite girl" as well as "buff and beautiful."[7]
  • She calls people multiple nicknames:
    • Cat Noir's nicknames are Cellphone Boy, Mr. Whiskers, and Kitten.
    • Ladybug's nicknames are Beetle and Baguette.
    • Hawk Moth's nicknames are Mothy, Butterfly Man, and Fly.
    • Nino's nicknames are Cappie, Flyweight, and Lightweight.
  • As a supervillain, Anansi is one of the few villains that Hawk Moth doesn't name, since "Anansi" is Nora's stage name in her boxing matches.
