A'ni-de was the callous and cold leader of Dachande's Clan before he ever held the title. Since Dachande's father was a Clan Leader of his clan, it could be said he is also A'ni-de and Nei'hman-de's sire.
A'ni-de is only seen in a flashback Dachande has. As the young warrior completes his Blooding ritual, killing two Xenomorphs instead of the typical one, he goes looking for his brother. A'ni-de coldly tells him that Nei'hman-de is dead and to go join the other warriors for approval. He strikes Dachande for expressing loss for his brother and for talking back to him. He is never mentioned again in the story.
