An Anchor is a type of Looper or Looping Artifact.
In the Infinite Loops, Anchor is a title given to a being or entity that stabilizes a given Loop. This is done by these Anchors constantly experiencing the events of the Loops. Every Loop iteration must contain at least one Anchor in order for a Loop to occur. Anchors are often the protagonists in whichever series of fiction the Hub (our world) has, though this is not a guarantee.
Also because of their nature as stabilizing influences, Anchors are always the first being or entity to begin Looping when their universe is turned "on." This, along with their necessity for a Loop to occur means that Anchors are often the most powerful being in their Loops. However, this does not mean that they are invincible, nor that a Looper from another universe is not even more powerful.
Almost any Looper will have an emotional connection to a Anchor, which is what allows them to Loop. Exceptions are not unknown, but are seen as anomalies. For every Looper with no connections to their Anchor there are over 99 Loopers with an emotional connection to their Loop's Anchor.
