An Ohara was a young girl who appeared in episode 31 of the Sailor Moon anime. An lived in Tokyo with her parents, and was the owner of a large tomcat named Rhett Butler. She seemed unaware that her otherwise docile pet struck fear into the hearts of the local feline population, including the fearsome Ashley. She was also apparently a fan of Sailor V, and owned the console version of the Sailor V game.

Keen to find the last of the Rainbow Crystals, Zoisite used the Black Crystal to pinpoint its owner, and received an image of An holding Rhett Butler. Mistakenly believing An to be the holder of the Crystal, he managed to corner her in an alleyway and subjected her to a blast from the Black Crystal. However, even a prolonged burst of energy failed to produce the Crystal, and Zoisite suddenly realized that he had been chasing the wrong target: the Crystal was not held by An, but by her cat. When Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, and Sailor Jupiter arrived, Zoisite quickly disappeared, leaving the unconscious An. Still believing her to be the enemy's target, the Sailor Senshi returned her to her house and stood guard over her; in the meantime Zoisite pursued his real target, Rhett Butler, through the sewers. After a while, Sailor Mercury realized that the Moon Stick was no longer responding to An, and that her cat must have been the Rainbow Crystal holder. They left the house in time to intercept Rhett Butler's Youma form, Bakene, and Sailor Moon transformed him back into an ordinary cat. An was reunited with her cat a short while later, having apparently recovered from her ordeal.
