"Although most hunters are good, some have gone bad; I track them down."
— Anna introducing herself to Rolf

Anna Zirski (Japanese: カインズ・ジ・アン, "Amia Amirski") is one of the playable characters in Phantasy Star 2. She arrives after Zema has been visited.

Anna is the only main character in the original classic series to be known as a guardian. While hunters were originally formed to eradicate biomonsters, some of them would become corrupt and use their powers for evil. Thus, guardians were established to police rogue hunters.


Anna is both a hunter and guardian whose purpose is to bring justice and peace to Motavia, thus is known as a Counter-Hunter. She was and still is forced to hunt down other hunters who turned bad. Anna also believes that giving up is no option. Anna is the sixth member of the party and joins after the player has arrived at Zema.


Anna is very skilled with slicers and whips, and is the only character who can wield the Neislasher, as well as one of the two characters who can wear the knifeboots, the other being Nei. She is also a balanced fighter, making her a strong asset as a party member.
