Created as a genetic experiment, Bubastis is a mutated lynx who serves as Adrian Veidt's sole companion through most of his adult life.
She sat with Adrian as he watched his televisions, becoming distressed at Rorschach and Nite Owl's arrival. Once they arrive, she is used as a deterrent against violence from the heroes. After Manhattan arrives, Bubastis was used by Veidt to lure Manhattan into an intrinsic field subtractor. After asking Bubastis for forgiveness, Veidt throws a switch activating the field and vapourising Bubastis and Jon in the process. Doctor Manhattan was able to reform himself a few minutes later.
- During an extra at the end of one volume, Adrian's marketers write to him asking if she (and several other costumed figures) could be added to the Ozymandias toy line. While he rejects the others, he approves of Bubastis, asking for a toy of her once it is released.
- Bubastis' color changes between mediums; in the comics, she is red, but in the movie, she is blue.
