Anais could command all
felines, "from the smallest cat to the most vicious lion." She had
cat-like reflexes and agility, and was invisible to psychics. Anais
also possessed a "sixth sense" that allowed her to sense danger and
could communicate in cat language, often meowing or purring to signify
specific phrases of her speech. In battle, Anais often carried a whip.

(Fantastic Four III#541 (fb) -
Anais was once the queen of a lost cat civilization in the Sahara
desert but was exiled. She eventually joined the French superhero team,
les Heroes de Paris.
(Fantastic Four III#541) - When the Thing traveled to Paris, France seeking to escape the United States' Superhuman Registration Act, he was confronted by les Heroes de Paris commander in absentia, Adamantine, who introduced the Thing to Anais and his other teammates. Over lunch, Adamantine explained to the Thing that les Heroes' enemy, l'Empereur du Monde Souterrain, had assembled an army of rock creatures to tunnel beneath and destroy Paris. As the Thing agreed to aid les Heroes against l'Empereur, Anais asked if anyone had seen her fish. Later, during the battle against l'Empereur du Monde Souterrain, Anais was ordered (with le Docteur Q) to catch up to l'Empereur before his reinforcements arrived. Rushing into battle with le Docteur Q, Anais coyly asked le Docteur Q to try and keep up, to which le Docteur Q replied that she would eating his boots shortly. The flirty Anais responded that eating boots always costed extra. After the Thing managed to defeat l'Empereur du Monde Souterrain, Anais accompanied the other les Heroes de Paris for a victory dinner.
(Fantastic Four III#542) - Anais and the Thing ventured into the Paris Catacombs, seeking to locate a secret Hydra base that le Docteur Q had discovered. The two were quickly ambushed by several Hydra agents, whom they made short work of. Twenty minutes later, after the police had rounded up the Hydra agents, Anais began flirting with the Thing, who commented that he was seeing someone. Anais told the Thing that it was Paris and an affair there did not count. She then kissed the Thing and leapt away just as the Human Torch arrived on the scene.
(X-Force IV#4 (fb) - BTS) - Anais apparently left les Heroes de Paris in favor of the clandestine le Bureau Discret team.
(X-Force IV#4) - Tipped off by a rumor started by Cable's X-Force of des Terroristes targeting Sacre Coeur and unaware of X-Force's true plot to secure her teammate le Necrogateur's aid, Anais prowled around Montmartre. When X-Force's MeMe deposited an odor-tag on Anais, she became aware that she was being followed and was soon met by X-Force's Fantomex. Anais quickly ran and attempted to contact her teammates, informing them that Fantomex was some sort of masked criminal. Upon being cornered in a church by Fantomex, Anais unleashed an army of cats upon Fantomex and escaped into the sewers, where X-Force's Marrow set off a grenade. Continuing to elude X-Force, Anais soon ran right into Cable, who shot her with a suspended animation bullet to fake her death and draw her teammates out. As X-Force watched from afar, le Bureau Discret arrived to assess the situation, eventually calling in le Necrogateur to check Anais' vital signs. Fantomex then attacked le Bureau Discret and captured le Necrogateur.

One has to wonder what sort of
connection that might
exist between Anais' lost Saharan cat civilization and the mystical Cat
Profile by Proto-Man.
Anais has no known connections to
