It's mentioned that she lived with nomads before marrying into the royal family, which is given as an explanation for why she knows how to call the Hidden Folk to heal Anna, and she debates the wisdom of Agnarr's plans for isolating the sisters.

* TheMentor: Like parents should do, they intend to support their children. Agdar and Iduna try to guide Elsa as she struggles with her powers.
* MyBelovedSmother: Deconstructed. Agdar and Iduna desire to protect their children, so they isolate them from anything that could hurt them, including each other. Because of this, the girls are denied the life experiences and skills that real people need to develop. Elsa becomes an IneffectualLoner who hides her emotions from everyone, including her sister until they are released. Since her powers are controlled by her emotions, not knowing how to handle either sets off the plot. Anna grows up very naive as to how love and healthy relationships work, resulting in her getting engaged to a man she barely knows who turns out to be a GoldDigger and is just using Anna's naivety to marry his way into ruling Arendelle.

* NotQuiteTheRightThing: After the trolls show a vision of an angry mob attacking a grown Elsa and warn [[ExactWords "fear will be your enemy,"]] her parents (mainly Agdar) conclude that the best thing to do is to keep her away from the world and have her power be kept secret until she learns to control it. However, this makes ''Elsa'' fear her powers, especially as the reason they were at the trolls was that she had accidentally injured Anna with ice, and causes her to build up a lot of emotional issues when the actual secret to controlling herself requires her to ''embrace'' her emotions and love for others, which is more like what she was already doing. Not only is this the wrong way to help Elsa, but it also takes away Anna's friendship with her sister and prevents her from making friends with anyone else, leaving her desperately craving affection. The moment she gets out and meets someone, she rushes into the first relationship that presents itself.

* HeroicBuild: Agdar has a broad, muscular body; even though the outcome of his methods of teaching Elsa to control her powers wasn't exactly right, his intentions were noble and out of love.
* HisStoryRepeatsItself: Another disaster with the elements apart from the shipwreck happened to Agdar about 25 years earlier. He was blown up by a jet of wind and leaves, and also encountered a forest fire, of which both Agdar and Iduna escaped from.
