Spy x Family revolves around Loid Forger and his family. At first look, it seems like a normal family: a father, a mother, a daughter, and a dog. However, the reality of the family is far complicated. Loid Forger is an undercover spy codenamed Twilight. To resolve a mission titled ‘Operation Strix,’ he forms this fake family. He marries Yor Forger and adopts Anya. However, Yor is actually an assassin codenamed ‘Thorn Princess,’ and Anya is a mind reader who fakes her age (she is 4 or 5 years old but claims to be 6) to get adopted by Loid. Neither Yor nor Loid are aware of each other’s backgrounds as they continue to live together and hide their true personalities. Loid also adopts a dog named Bond, who is actually the test subject of Project Apple and has the ability to look into the future.
