This pursuit puts her at crossroads with Shadow, who she ultimately stops from murdering his father, Mayor George Coyne. Following Shadow's death in the mayor's house explosion, Vivian convinces Katherine to leave the scene and let her and George deal with the police and media. Vivian tells the media that a hero named 'Miss Appear' saved her and George from Shadow.

(Recurring Season 1; Season 2 - Present) - Analise first appears in the third episode of Season 1, "It Should Of Been Me", where she is attacked by Shadow, but manages to survive after a rising sun disables Shadow's ability to kill others.

The character originated on another teenj12 show, "The Bikini Bottomen" , which was initially intended to take place in the Teenjverse alongside Miss Appear. However, after Bottomen was canceled, the show was severed from the shared universe, with Analise's history there being 'retconned'. Following her almost death, Analise is admitted to a hospital on a private floor. Shadow still manages to find her, rampaging his way through the hospital. Analise receives help in escaping him from Katherine Cross and Johnny Flaire. She is eventually moved to two different private facilities - one where Shadow attacks again, killing other powered patients.

In the last quarter of the season, Analise joins Katherine's crusade in finding Shadow, which increases intimacy between the two women.
In Season 2, Analise and Katherine finally begin to admit their feelings for each other, but Katherine is hesitant to start anything due to the hallucinations that she is suffering (which she believes are caused by Shadow). Analise helps Katherine investigate the source of her hallucinations, with the two sharing their first kiss in the midst of things. In the fifth episode of Season 2, 'Killer M', Analise has a vision of Vivian and herself being cornered by an assassin. This leads Katherine and Analise to charge over to Vivian's home and attempt to rescue her. In the process, Analise is shot by Killer M (Mikey Merlin), and is rushed to the hospital where she begins to recover after a tough night.

During June's date with him (a hike in the park), Shadow murders her, which sets the course for Katherine to investigate June's death, thereby kicking off the events of the entire series.
