Dowager Queen Anthy was Gendo's last wife, and still is alive. The young dowager queen is younger than many of her step-children. She is shy and quiet, the least assertive of the queens Gendo married over the years. In fact, she is sometimes so passive it gets downright creepy. till, she is gentle and kind. Her hair is purple and wavy, pulled back into a bun, and she wears glasses. She is mother to Utena and Wakaba.
These days, she seems largely content to advise Tylor and to maintain the castle gardens. She also acts as the umpire for the Rose Dueling Arena. During the Annadil Crisis, it became apparent that she is the guardian of the Demi-Jewel of Air.
Anthy is known to be quite close to Prince Mikage, and quite fond of her granddaughter Jacqueline and her grand-neice, Shinobu. She's also been known to discuss being a queen with Corrine and to spend time with Princess Hiko.
Anthy vanished for a week a while back, then returned to the castle; where she was is unknown.
Anthy is known to have assisted in the recent unpleasantness with abyssal infiltration of the family, and is believed to be somewhat worried as to where her daughters are.
