Anax was the pet lion companion of the legendary Icyene heroine Hebe, written about in the The Epic of Hebe. Anax was brought to Gielinor with many more lions by Saradomin to be companions and allies of the Saradominist people. Anax however wasn't tamed and instead roamed Hallowglade on the outskirts of Hallowvale. Hebe encountered the wild Anax, when she was patrolling the outskirts. Anax attacked her, but Hebe overpowered it, however she nursed its wounds afterwards thus gaining its trust. Anax was a very faithful and powerful companion to Hebe and remained with her for the rest of her life.
Hebe was said to have died in a faraway jungle with Anax by her side, and that Anax continues to stand guard of her body at the place, where she perished.
- ἄναξ (anax) means "King", "Lord" or "Tribal chief" in Ancient Greek.
