Voiced by: Hisako Kyoda (Japanese), Magda Giner (Latin-American Spanish), Mercedes Espinosa (European Spanish)

  • Eyes Always Shut: They only open when she is shocked or using her crystal ball.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: If the sketch George found in episode 34 is accurate, Anna could have been Sylvie's twin in her youth.
  • Nice Hat: She makes a sort-of living out of making those alongside being a member of the Dandelion Troupe.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: Tiny, tiny lady and the oldest of the group
  • Team Mom: She's the one who keeps the finances of the group in order, as clearly seen in the Paris episode.
  • Textile Work Is Feminine: Aside of making hats, she's a great seamstress who teaches Nadja to use a sewing machine so she can make her own dresses. She's so good that she takes Colette's completely torn Pimped-Out Dress and manages to sew the top into a new white gown.

  • Break the Cutie: His Tear Jerker of a backstory. He used to be the doctor of a small German village, but resorted to unfollow orders and steal medicine and supplies when a very serious illness broke out in the town and one of the victims was his son. Not only he was jailed, but said son was left in a wheelchair and his wife, despite still caring for him, left the place with said son. Once he was released from jail, he saw the Dandelion Troupe and joined it.

Cream and Chocolate

  • Dye Hard: In-Universe. It's revealed in episode 14 that Chocolate is naturally white; George colors him black for publicity purposes.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: They're said to be twin brothers; they're distinct by the fact that Cream's white and Chocolate's black (although Chocolate's dyed).
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: They're perpetually tiny lions with full manes. And they're super-friendly.
  • Series Mascot: The lions in the Dandelion Troupe logo are them (but bigger).

Miss Applefield

  • Cool Old Lady
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Or better said, a shelf.

  • Secret Keeper: As a friend of one of the Premingers's retainers, Miss Applefield knew more than one detail about Nadja's origins though it's not clear how much. She did know that Colette was an Ill Girl not expected to live for long, but didn't seem to know who she exactly was, nor that she ultimately lived through (at least until she got the letter).

  • True Blue Femininity: Her most usual dress is a light blue one
  • Shipper on Deck: As the pragmatic person she is, she ships Nadja with Keith so she will be out of the race for Francis's affections.

  • Loan Shark: All but stated to be this, if not bordering on Corrupt Corporate Executive. it turns out to be vital, as one of the people who owe him money? Hermann Preminger.
