Lady Lovely Locks

Voiced by Tony St. Vincent
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ladysmile.bmp

The heroine of the series, Lady Lovely Locks rules over her kingdom with wisdom and grace. She's aided by the power of her magical hair, which lets her summon the Pixietails and enter the Looking Room, and the Looking Room itself, which lets her see trouble happening in the land and fix it. In the audio dramas she marries Prince Strongheart, and they have a child named Leilani together.

  • Brought Down to Badass: Episode 7 has Lady's powers weakened, and she does a lot of the work herself, especially in the final segment where she rides a sled and evades Hairball's magic.
  • Damsel in Distress: Nine times out of ten, the Pixietails save Lady Lovely Locks from whatever trouble she is in this week.
  • Damsel out of Distress: Sometimes Lady Lovely Locks was able to rescue herself, though usually in the middle of an episode rather than the end.
  • Fisher King: The Land of Lovelylocks is kept safe and happy as long as Lady is there. In the first episode, Ravenwaves schemes to make Lady stay away for an extended period of time, plunging the kingdom into ruin.
  • MacGuffin: Lady Lovely Locks' hair is her power source. Duchess Ravenwaves' goal is to cut it and obtain power over the land.
  • Magic Hair: Her multicolored hair is the mark of royalty, and it can summon the Pixietails and power the Looking Room, which helps Lady see and heal troubles in the land.
  • Multicolored Hair: She has pink, purple, and yellow streaks in her blonde hair. According to a tie-in book, they represent the dawn and dusk.
  • Princesses Rule: Justified as her parents were sent away by a tornado, and Lady only ruled once she came of age.

Maiden Fairhair

Voiced by Jeannie Ellis
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fairhair.bmp

Maiden Fairhair is one of Lady's friends alongside Maiden Curlycrown. Logical and clear-headed, she knows how to analyze a situation and resolve it. Her hobbies include painting.

  • Brainy Brunette: The clear brains of the trio, and despite her name she's a brunette.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Maiden Fairhair is not fair-haired, having dark brown hair instead.
  • Out of Focus: With so many characters and only 10 minutes of runtime per episode, Maidens Fairhair and Curlycrown rarely get to do anything important.
  • The Smart Guy: She's good at figuring out what to do in situations, and has some knowledge of plants and animals in the land.

Maiden Curlycrown

Voiced by Stevie Vallance
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/curlycrown.bmp

Maiden Curlycrown is one of Lady's friends alongside Maiden Fairhair. Impetuous and quick to act, she is the emotional one of the trio. Her hobbies include insect collecting.

  • Damsel in Distress: In episode 10 she gets bitten by a Chromadid spider, which puts her into an endless sleep unless a cure is found.
  • Genki Girl: She's the most upbeat and energetic of Lady's friends.
  • Fiery Redhead: She's quick to act and share her opinions, and she has curly red hair.
  • Meaningful Name: Unlike Maiden Fairhair, Curlycrown's name is very indicative of her appearance, with her mass of red curls.
  • Out of Focus: With so many characters and only 10 minutes of runtime per episode, Maidens Fairhair and Curlycrown rarely get to do anything important.

Shining Glory

Voiced by Brian George
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shiningglory.bmp

The powerful, elderly wizard Shining Glory resides in Glory Manor alongside Prince Strongheart, his dog and companion. He is blind when not resting inside his crystal ball.

  • Blind Seer: Shining Glory is blind but knows many things about the land and its inhabitants.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Shining Glory's magic ends up resolving the plot a lot. In instances where he's out of the picture the solution is usually to save him so he can save the day.
  • The Mentor: He helps teach Lady, the maidens, and Strongheart about the world.
  • Story-Breaker Power: His magic could do almost anything, so things it didn't work against, or his age leading to fatigue, were fairly common so he didn't resolve the plot too quickly.

Prince Strongheart

Voiced by Danny Mann
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/strongheartmope.bmp
Click to see his human form. 

While he appears to be nothing more than Shining Glory's dog, Prince Strongheart was a human prince cursed into the form of a dog some time before the series began, and only occasionally regains his true form. Lacking the faculties to tell Lady the truth, he pines for her love from afar. In the audio dramas it was the witch Lazulia who cursed him, while the cartoon implies it was Hairball. His plight is unresolved in the show, but in the audio drama he's freed from the curse and marries Lady, and they have a child named Leilani together.

  • Animorphism: Prince Strongheart was cursed to change into a dog. Averted in the toyline, where he's just a normal human prince.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: In the cartoon, Prince Strongheart is never able to tell Lady the truth of his situation. The audio dramas resolve the issue by freeing him from the curse.
  • Meaningful Name: As a dog, his name is Prince, and he was once a human prince.
  • Morphic Resonance: His hair is the same shape as his tuft of fur in dog form.
  • The One Guy: He was the only male character in the toyline.
  • Talking Animal: In the audio dramas he could speak in dog form. Averted in the cartoon, where he couldn't talk at all in dog form.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: In "The Wishing Bone" Strongheart has a chance to use a wish to save himself from his curse, but has to save Lady and Shining Glory instead.
  • You Don't Look Like You: In the books his dog form is a sheepdog, while the cartoon version has short fur.

The Pixietails

Pixiesparkle voiced by Tony St. Vincent
Pixiebeauty voiced by Jeannie Ellis
Pixieshine voiced by Brian George
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pixietails.bmp

Including Pixiesparkle, Pixiebeauty, and Pixieshine, these adorable creatures live with other Pixietails in Pixietail Park. Every hundred years, they migrate through the Parched Desert to Pixietail Peak. The Pixietails wield powerful magic and are summoned when Lady shakes her magic hair.

Maidens Fairhair and Curlycrown also have Pixietail attendants, including Pixiecolor, Pixiepoo, and Pixiecomb for Fairhair and Pixiecurl, Pixie-Do, and Pixielocks for Curlycrown, but they rarely appear in the show. In the toyline, Prince Strongheart also has a set of unnamed Pixietails, and Maidens Goldenwaves and Mistycurls have Sea Magic Pixietails.

  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: The Pixietails have very strong magic and end up doing most of the work themselves, while Lady's only contribution is to summon them by shaking her hair.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Lady's Pixietails are bunnies, Fairhair's are birds, Curlycrown's are chipmunks, and in the toyline Strongheart's are squirrels and Goldenwaves' and Mistycurls' are various sea creatures.
  • Secret Keeper: Pixiebeauty becomes the only character besides Shining Glory to learn of Strongheart's secret, and promises not to tell anyone else.
  • Sleepyhead: Pixiebeauty has traces of this; of Lady's three Pixietails she's by far the most likely to be found dozing off or asleep somewhere. Even in the intro, she's the one who looks half-asleep.
  • Verbal Tic: The Pixietails add "ix" to the end of almost every word they say, making most of their speech nigh incomprehensible.

Silkymane and Silkypup

Lady's pet horse and dog, respectively, these loyal animals are always ready to lend a hoof or paw if needed.

  • Team Pet: For Lady's side.
  • You Don't Look Like You: In the toyline Silkymane is purple with a purple-pink mane and tail, while in the show she's light grey with a hot pink mane and tail.

    Villains 

Duchess Ravenwaves

Voiced by Stevie Vallance
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ravenwaveshappy.bmp

The main villain of the series, the spiteful Duchess Ravenwaves rules Tangleland, but what she really wants is the Land of Lovelylocks—and the power Lady's hair and the Looking Room hold. To that end she plots wicked schemes to take over the land, whether it be holding the kingdom's water for ransom or kidnapping Shining Glory as bait.

  • All There in the Manual: According to a tie-in book she's two years older than Lady.
  • Big Bad: She's the main villain of the series.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: While a very conniving, self-centered and ruthless person, she does have some morals. The most obvious example being the example from "Vanished" where she had Lady pretty much in her power — but gave up because Lady had saved her life just previous.
    Haiball: You couldn't do it, could you? I saw you! You couldn't do it!
    Ravenwaves: She saved my life. I owed her a favor, Hairball — and I don't like to owe anyone anything!
  • Heel–Face Turn: The final episode ends with a hint at this for Ravenwaves, as she's miserable over always losing and being alone. Lady tells her that being kinder to others can help, and she storms off to think things over.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Duchess Ravenwaves came very close to cutting Lady's hair at times, especially in "Vanished," where she held a Pixietail hostage, then ordered that all the Pixietails leave them alone, including the one she was holding. She was only foiled when a Pixietail too far away to hear the order snatched away her scissors.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Ravenwaves has no magical abilities herself, so she rarely takes part in schemes personally, letting Hairball and the Comb Gnomes handle the dirty work.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Duchess Ravenwaves wears dark purple and is the ruler of Tangleland.
  • What You Are in the Dark: "Vanished" had a moment where she could have cut Lady's hair while she was unconscious, but as Lady saved her life earlier she couldn't bring herself to do it.

Hairball

Voiced by Brian George
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hairball.bmp

A former pupil of Shining Glory before he turned to evil, Hairball serves his mistress with magic spells, though not always loyally. In a book tie-in, he also served under Ravenwaves' mother. In illustrations he's a white-haired gnome, while in the show he's a living ball of brown hair.

  • Evil Former Friend: Hairball used to work under Shining Glory and knows some of his spells, as well as how to get into his manor.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Hairball worked under, then betrayed, Shining Glory and does most of the magic Ravenwaves requires.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Hairball has a wide knowledge of magic and is usually out in the field, while Ravenwaves is content to sit and watch from afar.
  • A Pupil of Mine Until He Turned to Evil: This describes Hairball exactly, who was a former pupil of Shining Glory before he turned evil.
  • The Starscream: A couple times he tries to usurp power from Ravenwaves, though it never works out.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Hairball in the books and illustrations is a white-haired gnome, while in the show he's a living ball of brown hair. The only thing they have in common is the name and bushy mustache.

The Comb Gnomes

Snags voiced by Jeannie Ellis
Tanglet and Dulla voiced by Danny Mann

Only appearing in the book "An Enchanted Fairytale Adventure," she is Ravenwaves' mother and the former ruler of Tangleland. She was sent far away by a tornado of her own making, never to be seen again.

  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Her face was only seen in profile or obscured by a hood in the picture book, though a coloring book based on the story revealed her full face.

  • Inept Mage: Hairball warns her that her spell may backfire, and he's right.
  • Predecessor Villain: She's Ravenwaves' mother, who ruled Tangleland before she came of age.
