Shuriki

Voiced by: Jane Fonda
Voiced in Japanese by: Romi Park
Appearances: Sofia the First | Elena of Avalor

"Some inherit their kingdoms, others have to take it by force."

An Evil Sorceress from the Northern Islands. Forty-one years ago, she killed King Raul and Queen Lucia and forced the royal family into hiding while she took over Avalor, until Princess Elena returned and defeated her.


  • 0% Approval Rating: No one in Avalor really supported her, not even Esteban, but they were too afraid to stand up to her until Elena's return.
  • The Ageless: Thanks to her magic, she's immortal. If Elena had never returned, Avalor could've continued to suffer under Shuriki's rule for possibly hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Whether or not Elena's Blaze spell killed her or not. It is framed in a way that suggests that she might have been trapped in the Jewel of Night akin to when Elena was trapped in her amulet after it "protected" her from Shuriki's vadisima spell, but it's just as likely that she was merely disintegrated. Word of God, though, says that she's dead, although it's ultimately up to viewer interpretation as to whether she's just trapped or not. It ultimately doesn't matter either way, as Mateo destroys it in "Naomi Knows Best".
  • Animal Motif: Not as obvious as the malvago characters, but her motif seems to be a lizard.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Elena, and the feeling is entirely mutual. Upon finally being freed from the amulet in "Elena and the Secret of Avalor", Elena tries to kill Shuriki with her own wand, and when she resurfaces in Season 2, she immediately wants to hunt Shuriki down and kill her.
  • Big Bad: Of the Secret of Avalor special. Also the Greater-Scope Villain of Sofia the First, and of the show from "Realm of The Jaquins" through "Song of the Sirenas".
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Publicly, Shuriki would maintain an image of friendliness and joviality when it suits her, when in actuality, she is resentful and cold towards everyone.
  • The Comically Serious: As vile as she is, most of her interactions with Victor and Carla are just comedy gold due to her palpable exasperation at their Laughably Evil antics.
  • Control Freak: Her rule over Avalor focused on having things quiet and orderly, to the point of banning all music.
  • Cruel Mercy: Shuriki spared Esteban and made him chancellor, while killing Elena's parents and banished Esteban's friend to invoke Survivor Guilt on him.
  • Dark Is Evil: Her clothing is mainly dark-colored, and no-one in their right mind would ever mistake her for someone benevolent.
  • Death by Irony: Elena defeats her by using a Blaze spell on her, leaving nothing but the Scepter of Night's orb behind. It's unclear if she had been disintegrated or accidentally trapped in the orb, but both fates are what happened to her other victims — having disintegrated Elena's parents with a vadisima spell and unknowingly trapping Elena in her amulet.
  • Despotism Justifies the Means: Upon taking over Avalor, she happily took away everything fun and openly neglected her duties and the people, while leaving it up to Esteban to actually run the place.
  • Disk-One Final Boss: She's responsible for the show's backstory and is the main villain for half of Season 2, with Quita Moz stating around the same time that Elena must defeat a coming darkness. But soon after, another evil rises up and Quita Moz states that even though Shuriki has been defeated, she was not the darkness he had prophesied.
  • Disney Villain Death:
  • The Dreaded: She is feared by everyone in Avalor, and her return spells doom for the entire kingdom.
  • Entitled Bitch: She is genuinely surprised when Esteban turns against her, despite the fact that she had moments ago taunted him over going back on her word after he helped her invade Avalor and even threatened him with the same fate she inflicted on his aunt and uncle. During "Song of the Sirenas", she openly calls herself "the real queen of Avalor", regardless of the fact that she has no actual claim to the throne.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Duh. She has magic and is fine with committing murder.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: It's kept off-screen, but Elena basically incinerates her with a Blaze spell from the Scepter of Light in "Song of the Sirenas". However, this doesn't necessarily mean that she's gone for good.
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: It's not clear what the Northern Isles are supposed to be based off of, but they share their name with a pair of British archipelagos north of Scotland.
  • Fun-Hating Confiscating Adult: She hates music, dancing, and festivals, to the point she's banned them from Avalor during her reign.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Her takeover of Avalor and attempt on Elena's life is what caused Elena to be trapped in a magical amulet that would be eventually given to Sofia, essentially causing a number of events in Sofia the First.
  • Grim Up North: The Northern Isles are implied to be this, with Word of God stating that Shuriki is a powerful figure there.
  • Hypocrite: While ruling over Avalor, she desired that everything be peaceful and quiet... save for having the people cheer for her.
  • I Lied:
    • As revealed in the pilot special, she enlisted Esteban to help her take over Avalor, promising him power in exchange and promising that she would not harm his family. While she did give Esteban the power he wanted, she went back on the rest of her word and murdered Elena's parents before trying to do the same to Elena, and banished his friend Victor Delgado along with his entire family. All this was to Kick the Dog for Esteban so that at every waking moment, he would live with the guilt of losing everyone he ever cared about.
    • Curiously enough, Shuriki does end up keeping her word and allows Fiero to transform the Delgados into Malvagos. Why? Fiero mentioned that Victor and Carla could not possibly handle such power and that's when she realizes in the off-chance they don't survive the process, and considering how much they mess up, it would be of no consequence to her.
  • It's All About Me: Her general mindset during her rule over Avalor. She banned all music, simply because of her own distaste for it, banned all other magic-users such as Fiero from the kingdom (most likely so no-one would ever challenge her in that regard) and even replaced the original Avaloran flag with Jacquins on it with one depicting her own profile, due to not wanting anything other than herself to be a symbol of the kingdom.
  • Karmic Death: After all those years causing pain and suffering to Elena, her family and friends, Shuriki is finally killed by Elena using the Scepter of Light in "Song of the Sirenas".
  • The Kingslayer: She killed Elena's parents as part of the invasion.
  • Killed Off for Real: Craig Gerber confirmed that she is dead following "Song of the Sirenas".
  • Knight of Cerebus: Her return pretty much heralded a more serious tone to the series.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is taken from the kanji characters in the Japanese phrase, "the power to end everything" (すべてをわる)note 
  • Might Makes Right: Shuriki subscribes to the belief that it doesn't matter who deserves what, but rather who has the power to take what they get.
  • Mysterious Past: It is currently unknown why she chose to invade Avalor, though Word of God has stated that it had to do with something between her and King Raul regarding the Northern Isles, which will be revealed as the show goes on.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Her name essentially means the destruction of everything.
  • Never Say "Die": While it's pretty clear from the beginning that Shuriki killed Elena's parents, Elena initially only mentions that Shuriki attacked them. Subverted in "Song of the Sirenas", when Elena outright describes her as "the sorceress who killed my parents".
  • Obviously Evil: She and her men wear dark clothing and Avalor looks bleak and miserable under her rule.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Once Shuriki realizes that the Scepter of Light has the power to counter any evil magic she can throw at Elena, and of course harm her.
    • She has another one in "Song of the Sirenas", in which she realizes she has failed to finish off Elena and is then promptly defeated by her once and for all.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • She compliments Victor after he brings her a red jewel that imprisoned Marimonda, which she uses to restore her youth, though whether or not she was sincere is unknown.
    • She almost has one when she gives Carla praise for a job well done, but she just has to make it awkward by agreeing when Carla says that she never thought she'd ever hear those words from her.
    • She does it again with Carla when their villainous group must now find the second piece of the Scepter of Night after Elena obtains the first one, largely due to Fiero and Victor bungling it up with their incessant bickering and in-fighting. Carla suggests that they can take the first piece from Elena when she goes get the second one, to which Shuriki smiles and tells Carla that there may be hope for her yet.
  • Properly Paranoid: Shuriki banned the practice of magic from Avalor (Fiero included) apart from her own, because she was wary of being overthrown.
  • Rapid Aging: Undergoes this when Elena destroys her wand. She restores herself with a jewel that Victor absconds from Marimonda's prison.
  • Red Herring: She is not the great darkness that Elena must defeat to become Queen.
  • Retcon: In the backdoor pilot, Shuriki is shown suddenly appearing before King Raul and Queen Lucia's carriage before killing them, unaware that Elena was watching. In the series proper, she briefly turns to look at Elena to taunt her before killing the king and queen, although it's implied that this part was imagined as a result of Elena's trauma.
  • The Sociopath: Has no empathy or care for anyone but herself. Even her minion Carla lampshades it when, in response to Shuriki saying she feels festive, Carla says "You feel?" incredulously.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: It is the source of much frustration that she has to undergo regarding her own underlings; Victor is too arrogant and Carla is such a Spoiled Brat, that they're only marginally reliable and it leads them to make stupid mistakes along the way. The only one who manages to do a marginally better job is Fiero.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: As time goes on, Shuriki and the Delgados seem to get more and more on each other's nerves, even taken open verbal shots at one another, but they still rely upon each other to get what they all want.
  • This Cannot Be!: Shuriki's reaction when she finds that the Scepter of Light has magic that can overpower hers.
  • Vain Sorceress: She used her magic to maintain her youth over the forty-one years she ruled Avalor, removing even the slightest wrinkles as they appeared. After Elena breaks her wand, this is all undone, causing her to age into an old woman in an instant.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Shuriki is a murderous throne usurper and oppressive tyrant who has killed and attempted to kill others on-screen...in a Disney Junior show. The only other villain in the series to match her vileness would be Fiero, the other Evil Sorcerer who threatened the royal family in the past.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She falls into one after Elena breaks her wand, wailing and repeating "No!" before finally falling into the waters around Avalor.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: After Shuriki reforges her wand from the magical jewel in the royal vault, she confronts Elena again, uses the same spell that killed her parents. What was different this time is that Elena has the Scepter of Light, which has the power to cancel out her magic and destroy her second wand. Of course, Shuriki intends to fix this later on with a new artifact that can match the Scepter of Light.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Outside of Avalor, most of the neighboring kingdoms, like Enchancia, believed Shuriki to be the rightful ruler of the kingdom. Said good publicity goes out the window when Elena returns.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: She can't perform any magic spells without her wand, and she rapidly ages into a powerless elderly woman when her wand is simply snapped in half... though you'd have to get her wand in the first place, which she always keeps on herself. Sofia and Esteban manage to get close enough to her to grab it while they're still in her good graces.

    Fiero 

Fiero

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eoa_fiero.PNG
Voiced by: Héctor Elizondo

A malvago (Evil Sorcerer) who was once in the running for the kingdom's royal sorcerer. After Alacazar was chosen instead of him, he became Alakazar's worst enemy. He returns in the present to steal the Codex Maru, Alacazar's spellbook.


  • Animal Motif: Has snakes on his robe, cape, and tamborita.
  • Ascended Extra: He started off as a one-shot antagonist in the first season. In the second season, he is brought back and joins forces with Shuriki, Victor and Carla, but is turned back into stone by Mateo in "Song of the Sirenas".
  • The Dragon: Becomes Shuriki's #1 lapdog and fellow Evil Sorcerer in Season 2, but he wants to officially become the Royal Malvago when Shuriki takes Avalor again.
  • Evil Old Folks: As a contemporary of Alakazar, he's at least in his seventies, and is quite cruel and vicious.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He ends up having his own spell bounced back at him, turning him to stone. Turns out it's a weaker, reversible version of the spell he attempted to use and Mateo found the means to undo it.
  • Kick the Dog: After Mateo gave him the Codex Maru in return for letting his friends go, Fiero decided on a whim to take the potion that would cure all the people he had turned to stone.
  • Knight of Cerebus: He is one of the darkest, most frightening villains to appear in the series, next to Shuriki. Naturally, they end up joining forces.
  • Taken for Granite: His favorite spell. Ironically, he has been turned into stone himself by Mateo twice.
  • Underestimating Badassery: He states that Victor and Carla cannot handle such power as malvagos, but Carla proves to be powerful enough to perform a powerful magical spell with her mother.

    Victor Delgado 

Victor Delgado

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/victor_delgado.jpg
Voiced by: Lou Diamond Phillips

Victor: Avalor will soon be ours, and they will all regret the day they wronged Victor Delgado!
Carla: And Carlaaaa Delgado!

The son of the former royal treasurer under King Raul. He was a childhood friend of Esteban and the two worked together with Shuriki to overthrow the king and queen until Victor and his family were banished by her instead. Now that Shuriki is gone, he returns to Avalor with his daughter Carla to steal Queen Lucia's tiara...


  • Animal Motif: After being turned into a malvago, his animal motif is a scorpion.
  • Bad Boss: Even moreso than Shuriki, apparently. Him repeatedly insulting Cruz even leads to him and Vestia ditching him and Carla.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: After Shuriki and Fiero are dealt with in "Song of the Sirenas", Victor is left as the de-facto leader of her alliance of evil-doers. If past performance is anything to go by, he's not going to be inspiring the same amount of fear and loathing. Subverted when it turns out he inspires more fear and loathing. Then double subverted when it leads to Cruz and Vestia abandoning him and Carla. "Naomi Knows Best" reveals that his wife Ash looks down on him and considers Carla to be more powerful than him. At the end of the episode, he's imprisoned while Ash and Carla, who are unable to save him, plot revenge.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: In "King of the Carnaval", where he pretends to still be caring towards Elena and her family just so that he can steal Lucia's tiara from them while they're guard is down.
  • Blackmail: He forces Esteban to help him steal the crown by threatening to tell his family that he helped Shuriki take over Avalor, and he's the only one who knew about this.
  • Brought Down to Normal: He loses his tamborita and gets arrested in "Naomi Knows Best". He gets it back temporarily in "The Magic Within", but it gets destroyed soon after. Not like he'll need it...
  • Card-Carrying Villain: His and Carla's Villain Song in "A Spy in the Palace" shows that they're quite aware that their moral alignment is "dastardly dark" and "malicious".
  • Cassandra Truth: At one point, he tells Elena point blank that Esteban willingly helped Shuriki take over. Elena doesn't believe him, knowing that Esteban would never want to hurt his own family; Esteban goes with it because that part was true.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He betrayed the Royal Family (and by extension, all of Avalor), he betrays Elena and her family while trying to steal Lucia's tiara, and intended to betray Shuriki until Elena did her in. Though given that he's been on the opposite end of this, it's a wonder that he hasn't learned his lesson.
    • Fittingly, his Animal Motif is a scorpion, a nasty insect known for having a stinger on its tail that faces forward.
  • Co-Dragons: He and Carla are this to Shuriki up until Fiero comes along and immediately outranks them by becoming her sole dragon. They're not pleased with their demotion, and thus are just fine with both Shuriki and Fiero being removed from the equation later on.
  • Dark Is Evil: He wears a dark suit, which is upgraded to a dark cloak as a malvago.
  • Dirty Coward: "The Jewel of Maru" shows that for all his bluster, he is scared easily by ghosts.
  • Dragon Ascendant: Both Shuriki and Fiero are put out of commission at the end of "Song of the Sirenas", but Victor and Carla don't mind since they got what they wanted from the alliance — becoming malvagos — and are now free to pursue their own villainous careers, and perhaps take over Avalor themselves.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • He loves his daughter dearly. The best example is "Snow Place Like Home", with Victor carrying Carla through a blizzard when she can no longer walk, and her snuggling her head against him happily. Her almost getting injured in "The Magic Within" is also enough for him to have the two of them quit their evil careers.
    • Victor does seem to care about his father, considering he calls out Esteban for letting Shuriki banish him and his family.
    • Despite the lover's quarrel between them, he does love his wife. But as Ash no longer reciprocates those feelings and is willing to put Carla in danger, he no longer loves her either.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Well, he was already evil, but his transformation into a malvago also transforms his clothes, giving him a dark cloak with scorpion motifs.
  • Exact Words: In "The Magic Within", he refuses to have him and Carla continue with Ash on the quest for power. Well, now that he's been petrified, he won't be going anywhere.
  • Foil: He and Esteban both felt like No Respect Guys, feeling as if they'd never nearly amount to how appreciated their family and colleagues were, leading to them betraying them to Shuriki. Neither of them were happy when Shuriki didn't follow through with some parts of her end of the deal, but Esteban regrets his decision yet wants to hide from it while Victor doesn't seemed to have learned anything, is letting history repeat, and would rather blame Esteban for not sticking up for him. Additionally, Victor has no partner or family besides his daughter Carla while his relationship with his father after their exile is unknown, while Esteban has no family of his own but is surrounded by his cousins and grandparents.
  • Freudian Excuse: Supposedly, according to Victor, he was never treated with respect, even as a child.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Shuriki and Fiero (especially the latter) admittedly don't always like the father-daughter duo.
  • Glory Hound: The duo don't like that Fiero is Shuriki's #1 while they will be #2 and #3. They decide they want to find the staff of the Scepter of Night and take the credit for it, and then eventually off Fiero when the time comes.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He appears to be jealous of Esteban since, as a technical member of the royal family, he was able to get away with more of his trouble-making antics as a kid than Victor could. That Esteban, in Victor's view anyway, suffered no consequences for helping Shuriki rise to power while he got banished afterward was the final straw for him. Fittingly, his eyes are colored green.
  • Heel Realization: In "The Magic Within", he realizes that all these evil schemes aren't worth it if Carla's safety is endangered. Unfortunately, Ash doesn't agree.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: At first, they just seem to be petty thieves who want the crown jewels, but soon make it apparent that the actual crown is the only part that's important to them. When defeated, they vow to come back for the crown because "they need it". It's because Shuriki needs the crown jewels to rebuild her wand.
  • Hidden Depths: In their debut episode, it is established that Victor and his father were family friends of the royal family, and despite Victor practically being raised at the palace as Esteban's best friend, "A Spy In the Palace" reveals that he always felt that people put him down and treated him like a joke. He likely spoils his daughter because he doesn't want her to have a similar experience growing up.
  • High Collar of Doom: Gets one when he becomes a malvago.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Victor and Carla take Shuriki at her word when she promises to make them Malvagos. Victor seems to be forgetting what happened the last time Shuriki promised him something, unless he was desperate... Subverted, as we do see that they were very wary of Shuriki, and had to think accordingly in case Shuriki doesn't reward them or turns on them.
  • Hypocrite: When he admonishes Esteban for doing nothing when Shuriki banished him, Esteban tells him that he had no choice. Victor shoots back "you always have a choice". He conveniently overlooks the fact that he chose to ally himself with Shuriki, and that his banishment was a consequence of that choice.
  • Ignored Epiphany: He's bitter over his betrayals by Esteban and Ash, but trusts Shuriki enough again to believe that she'll make him and Carla into malvagos once her evil plan succeeds, even though she's shown in the past that she doesn't follow up with her deals. Granted, he and Carla planned to betray her once her scheme succeeded, but who knows if that would've worked out.
  • It's All About Me: He doesn't care how much pain he caused by helping Shuriki take over Avalor. All he cares about is that Shuriki banished him while rewarding Esteban, and Esteban did nothing to stop it. When Esteban insists he had no choice after Shuriki killed Elena's parents, Victor blows him off. Victor doesn't even stop to consider that maybe he was lucky for being banished rather than having to live in fear and misery under Shuriki's oppression like Esteban was.
    • Subverted in regards to anything regarding Carla. In fact, her almost dying in "The Magic Within" while escaping with Ash is what causes his Heel Realization, while Ash remains firm about being selfish.
  • Large Ham: Not as much as Carla, but he has his moments, like in their Villain Song.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He gets imprisoned for his actions in "Naomi Knows Best", which is fitting.
  • Laughably Evil: Eventually Carla's antics rub off on him, best shown when their Villain Song is done in the form of a freestyle rap.
  • Jerkass: He's a selfish con artist and a thief whose number-one priority is always himself (except for when it comes to his family).
  • Knight of Cerebus: Not as much as Shuriki, but Victor and Carla to be portrayed seriously whenever they appear.
  • Meaningful Name: Victor was considered to be the more capable between him and Esteban, and he also has an ego. Doubles as an Ironic Name, because he feels like the No Respect Guy.
  • Missing Mom: Victor's mother and Carla's paternal grandmother is never mentioned.
  • No Respect Guy: He feels this way, which is what motivates his villainy.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Like his daughter, he's no slouch, as he can be pretty effective as well. For example, the plan to free Marimonda to obtain the jewel Shuriki needed to regain her youth while the heroes focused on trying to stop Marimonda so Victor and Carla could easily get away goes off perfectly and without a hitch. And despite having no magic, he manages to hold his own as a rival to Fiero in "The Scepter of Night".
  • Papa Wolf: In "Snow Place Like Home", he carries Carla in his arms to their house through a blizzard when she strains her leg and can no longer walk.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Downplayed. His disguise as an old woman looks suspicious enough that Naomi can at least recognize that it's a man, not a woman.
  • Percussive Pickpocket: Elena's grandparents comment that he and Esteban were quite masterful at pulling pranks using this as kids, usually in the form of hugs or bumping into people. Now that he really is a thief, he's passed this skill on to his daughter, Carla.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His malvago outfit, which is predominantly black and contain hints of purple.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Ironically enough, Shuriki betrayed him when she banished him instead of holding up her end of the bargain (unless Victor was stretching or leaving out some details) and in truth, she wasn't going to turn him and Carla into malvagos, even if she succeeded to defeating Elena. Not to mention that he's rather bitter about Esteban not standing up for him against Shuriki when he got banished. Of course, all of this goes over Victor's head.
  • Smug Snake: Both of them, while certainly skilled in certain areas, are nowhere near as impressive as they think they are as villains, which Shuriki is constantly visualizing.
  • Sticky Fingers: Frequently did this with Esteban towards Abuela and Abuelo when they were kids. When he returns to the palace, he does it to Abuelo once more for old time's sake.
  • Taken for Granite: Ash petrifies him after he refuses to have him and Carla continue doing evil schemes out of concern for Carla's safety. Elena and co. aren't sure if they can find a way to undo it.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork:
    • As time goes on, Shuriki and the Delgados seem to get more and more on each other's nerves, even taken open verbal shots at one another, but they still rely upon each other to get what they all want.
    • He's also this with Ash, who has come to despise him for supposedly taking Carla away from her and wants nothing to do with him, but initially tries to work with him only for Carla's sake. It doesn't work.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They're Laughably Evil and work for Shuriki. It becomes a Terrible Trio when they're reunited with Ash.
  • Took a Level in Badass: While still not the most graceful of adversaries, they are more formidable than before once they become malvagos.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: While Shuriki deserves no sympathy for her death, the fact that Victor and Carla brush it off as nothing so long as they got what they wanted out of their alliance can make them come across as this, especially since she turned them into malvagos like they wanted and was seemingly willing to give them royal power once she re-took control of Avalor.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: In his debut episode, Elena and her grandparents fondly reminisce Victor and Esteban playing together, such as pranking them by pickpocketing their jewelry or running through the palace halls. However, as an adult, he's become genuinely greedy. According to himself in Season 2, he felt like a No Respect Guy as a kid and seeking out power is his way at getting back at the world. Whether or not he's just using Self-Serving Memory or the royal family was Innocently Insensitive to him isn't currently known.
  • Villain Decay: Downplayed, and an inversion to Carla's Character Development. He technically never stops being capable and even becomes more threatening when he is turned into a malvago, but he was portrayed as a much more straight-up sinister villain in his debut episode, "King of the Carnival", whereas afterwards he just got goofier and more bumbling with each passing appearance.
  • Villain Has a Point: He is correct that his wife Ash could've come back to him and Carla anytime instead of continue with her malvago training, and that she exhibits It's All About Me and Never My Fault.
  • Villain Song: "Don't Look Now", which also serves as a Motive Rant, with Victor revealing that he's felt like a No Respect Guy since his youth.
  • Villainous Crossdresser: He disguises as an old woman in "Science Unfair", and thinks he looks rather fetching.
  • We Used to Be Friends: As his father was royal treasurer, Victor practically grew up at the palace and was known among the royal family for being Esteban's best friend.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Victor's father and Carla's grandfather is mentioned in their debut episode, but he presumably passed away after he and his family were exiled.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Victor is willing to hurt teens and the preteen Isabel. Not to mention that he didn't seem to care all that much when Elena and Isabel's lives were endangered by Shuriki when he and Esteban made a deal with her forty-one year’s ago.

    Carla Delgado 

Carla Delgado

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carla_delgado_9.jpg
Voiced by: Myrna Velasco
Voiced in Latin American Spanish by: Jocelyn Robles

Victor and Ash's daughter. Raised to be evil like her parents, she gleefully participates in their schemes.


  • Adorkable: She may be a villain, but Carla is also a complete and total dork, to humorous effect.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg:
    • When Elena exiles her and Victor from Avalor after they get caught during the carnaval, she appears shocked and begins to approach Elena as if to ask for her not to do this, but Victor holds her back, acknowledging that they've lost.
    • She lets herself be turned in when her mother abandons her and turns her father to stone, and only asks Elena to find a way to free him. Elena can't make any promises, but appears to sympathize with her plight.
  • Animal Motif: After being turned into a malvago, her animal motif is a spider.
  • Beauty Is Bad: She is so cute, but so evil. Her disguise as Rita invokes this even more.
  • Becoming the Mask: Averted. While undercover in the palace as Rita for weeks, she never warms up to Elena and co. and remains loyal to her father (and Shuriki). On the other hand, their antics have rubbed off on her to the point that she does gain her own sense of independence and starts to step up in earning what she wants.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She's often immature, impatient, ineffectual and incredibly spoiled. Nevertheless, she was incredibly competent when disguising herself as Rita to serve as The Mole, where she had everyone fooled for weeks. Naomi is the only one to begin suspecting her eventually, but it's too late by then, as Carla successfully achieved her mission, much to the astonishment of Shuriki, who gives Carla genuine praise on a job well done, though no one is more surprised than Elena herself.
    Elena (after she's in shock at seeing Shuriki): Fiero? Victor? And Carla?! You were Rita?!
    Carla: And you were clueless.
    • This is shown again in "The Scepter of Night", where she comes up with the idea to take the first piece of the Scepter of Night from Elena when she comes for the second one. An impressed Shuriki tells her there may be hope for her yet.
    • In "Naomi Knows Best", she outright proves to be a formidable villain when she fights the heroes.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: One of her defining traits. In "King of the Carnaval", she acts like a normal teen who is just curious about her father's past while actually helping him in trying to steal Queen Lucia's tiara. It's also why Shuriki and Victor believe sending her undercover as a spy in the Avalor Palace in Season 2 will work out smoothly, and it does.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Often, especially in her interactions with Victor and Shuriki.
  • Brought Down to Normal: She loses her tamborita in "Naomi Knows Best".
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Her and Victor's Villain Song in "A Spy in the Palace" shows that they're quite aware that their moral alignment is "dastardly dark" and "malicious".
  • Character Development: She initially starts out as Laughably Evil Daddy's Little Villain, but Season 2 seems to be building up to her becoming less dependent on her father, spending a three-episode arc undercover and later earning Shuriki's respect while Victor argues with Fiero over their The Dragon statuses. She proves her worth in the Season 2 finale.
  • Co-Dragons: She and Victor are this to Shuriki up until Fiero comes along and immediately outranks them by becoming her sole dragon. They're not pleased with their demotion, and thus are just fine with both Shuriki and Fiero being removed from the equation later on.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: Given how evil her parents are, it's no surprise that they raised Carla to be evil as well.
    • She willingly and gleefully joins in on her father's criminal activities.
    • Later it turns out that her mother is also villainous, making Carla a case of Mommy's Little Villain too. In "Naomi Knows Best", they... attempt to kill Elena together.
  • Dark Is Evil: She wears a dress that uses a lot of black, which is upgraded to a dark cloak as a malvago.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Very much so. She even manages to snark at Shuriki.
  • The Determinator: When she wants something, she rather impressively refuses to let anything stop her from getting it.
  • Dragon Ascendant: Both Shuriki and Fiero are put out of commission at the end of "Song of the Sirenas", but Victor and Carla don't mind since they got what they wanted from the alliance — becoming malvagos — and are now free to pursue their own villainous careers, and perhaps take over Avalor themselves.
  • Even Bad Girls Love Their Mamas: There is a clear earnestness in her voice when she says she wishes "mama" could see her and Victor now when they become malvagos, showing that she clearly misses her Missing Mom. And when said Missing Mom returns in "Snow Place Like Home", she and Carla immediately share a heartfelt embrace.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: After their defeat, she tells Ash that they need to go back for Victor when he's arrested, and is horrified when Ash implies she wants to leave him behind, before groaning in frustration.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She looks up to her parents and loves them dearly. She laments the absence of her mother and is delighted when she finally returns, and is upset when her father is left behind by her mother.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Well, she was already evil, but her transformation into a malvago also transforms her clothes, giving her a dark cloak with spider motifs.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • She is one to Mateo, both being teenagers who wield powerful magic. However, Mateo is a good person and a close friend to Elena, whereas Carla is a villain who attempts to kill Elena.
    • She's also one to Naomi, both being Badass Normal (though Carla gets turned into a malvago later on) teenage girls who live exclusively with their respective fathers in different places and have a Friendless Background, but have their mothers return to them later on.
  • Freudian Excuse: Having to travel the road with her dad all her life has left her without a real sense of home or any friends and is why she's so loyal to her parents.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Shuriki and Fiero (especially the latter) admittedly don't always like the father-daughter duo.
  • Friendless Background: She never had a friend in her life because she and her father were always on the move and she never had a stable environment to live in. Not that this bothers her.
  • Genius Ditz: She has her moments of this, such as misnaming Mateo.
  • Glory Hound: The duo don't like that Fiero is Shuriki's #1 while they will be #2 and #3. They decide they want to find the staff of the Scepter of Night and take the credit for it, and then eventually off Fiero when the time comes.
  • Heel Realization: In "The Magic Within", she realizes that her mother is a horrible person when she petrifies her father all because he wanted to stop with the evil schemes out of concern for Carla's safety, so she decides to stop following her. Afterwards, she willing turns herself in, becomes sympathetic to Elena over being betrayed by family, and only asks her to find a way to free her father.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: At first, they just seem to be petty thieves who want the crown jewels, but soon make it apparent that the actual crown is the only part that's important to them. When defeated, they vow to come back for the crown because "they need it". It's because Shuriki needs the crown jewels to rebuild her wand.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • For her part, Carla says in "A Spy in the Palace" that, regardless of how much her father dotes on her, she's grown up always feeling alone due to never having a stable home or any friends, and she desires power to alleviate these feelings.
    • "Naomi Knows Best" reveals that Carla is a more dangerous and powerful malvago than Victor. Perhaps even more so than Ash...
  • Horrible Judge of Character:
    • Victor and Carla take Shuriki at her word when she promises to make them Malvagos. Victor seems to be forgetting what happened the last time Shuriki promised him something, unless he was desperate... Subverted, as we do see that they were very wary of Shuriki, and had to think accordingly in case Shuriki doesn't reward them or turns on them.
    • She's put her mother on a high pedestal that it becomes a Broken Pedestal when her mother decides to petrify her father after an argument and doesn't bat an eye when Carla refuses to leave with her.
  • Jerkass: Like her father, she's a selfish con artist and a thief whose number-one priority is always herself (except for when it comes to her family).
  • Jerkass Has a Point: She wasn't wrong when she said that Fiero acts like he's so above them, but if it wasn't for her and Victor, he'd still be a statue. Likewise, it's easy to sympathize with her and Victor feeling upset when Shuriki immediately declares him her Royal Malvago when he has done much less for her than they have and yet she still has yet to reward them for their services.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Not as much as Shuriki, but Victor and Carla to be portrayed seriously whenever they appear.
  • Large Ham: "AND CARLA DELGADO!"
  • Laughably Evil: Carla seems to get more and more goofy moments with each passing appearance due to her immaturity, which eventually rubs off on Victor, best shown when their Villain Song is done in the form of a freestyle rap.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Victor doesn't appear to share much of the finer details of his plans with her, much to her annoyance.
  • Malicious Misnaming: She loves misnaming Mateo.
  • Meaningful Name: A carl is an archaic term for a peasant or a low-class citizen, which is what the duo are, despite the family formerly having ties with the royal family.
  • The Mole: She disguises herself as the cute, innocent Rita to pose as Armando's long-lost cousin and gain Elena's and Naomi's trust while she finds a way to get the tiara containing the magical jewel before her deception is revealed.
  • Morality Pet:
    • She is this to Victor, being the only person he treats with kindness and respect. "Snow Place Like Home" shows just how much he cares about her.
    • She is also this to her mother Ash, as "Not Without My Magic" shows that she and Victor pretend to not be having a martial spat whenever Carla is present, and Ash is distraught that she missed her daughter growing up.
  • Not So Different:
    • She is this to Elena, of all people. Both are teenagers seeking to prove themselves, both have mothers who are absent from their lives but come back to them in one way or another, and both seek to unlock a magical potential.
    • In "Snow Place Like Home", similarily to Elena, Naomi and Mateo, Carla is enjoying Navidad with her family.
  • Operation: [Blank]: As Rita, she calls her mission to sabotage Naomi "Operation: Bye Bye Naomi".
  • Pet the Dog:
    • In "Rise of the Sorceress", she has a sad look on her face when Elena brings up her murdered parents, suggesting that even her Lack of Empathy can only go so far. But she treats it as more of an uncomfortable moment for her, which does make sense given how awkward it must be to be present in the moment where someone's lamenting a murder committed by your current secret employer.
    • In "Snow Place Like Home", she complains about Victor repeatedly insulting Cruz, which led to him and Vestia abandoning the both of them. Seems more like a case of Pragmatic Villainy, though.
  • Purple Eyes: Her eyes are a very dark violet, representing her arrogance and foreshadowing her transformation into a malvago.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her malvago outfit, which is predominantly black and contain hints of purple, which goes well with her Purple Eyes.
  • Ship Tease: While she was Rita, her interactions with Mateo went into this territory, and Mateo seemed to have some sort of crush on her.
  • Skewed Priorities: In "Royal Rivalry", she is upset at the Wanted Posters featuring her and Victor, because her face appears smaller than his. It becomes a Brick Joke when she sees new posters at the end of the episode and is glad her face has the same size as his on them.
  • Smarter Than You Look: She is either this or Brilliant, but Lazy, as she never struck as the type to apply herself. Her brilliance shows in "The Scepter of Night" when she understood what the first riddle meant; with Shuriki already having a low opinion of her, Carla resolves to be more proactive and give her 100%, hoping it pays off.
  • Smug Snake: Both of them, while certainly skilled in certain areas, are nowhere near as impressive as they think they are as villains, which Shuriki is constantly visualizing.
  • Spoiled Brat: She is so obsessed with getting what she wants, that she will not let anyone stop her from doing so, and loses her patience and rants whenever she doesn't. Victor likely raised her like this because, as their dual Villain Song suggests, it was quite the opposite for him in his childhood.
  • The Tease: As Rita, she is able to play Mateo like a violin this way.
  • Teens Are Monsters: She could be considered this, displaying all of the negative attributes commonly associated with teenagers in addition to being a villain.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: As time goes on, Shuriki and the Delgados seem to get more and more on each other's nerves, even taken open verbal shots at one another, but they still rely upon each other to get what they all want.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They're Laughably Evil and work for Shuriki. It becomes a Terrible Trio when they're reunited with Ash.
  • Took a Level in Badass: While still not the most graceful of adversaries, they are more formidable than before once they become malvagos.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: While Shuriki deserves no sympathy for her death, the fact that Victor and Carla brush it off as nothing so long as they got what they wanted out of their alliance can make them come across as this, especially since she turned them into malvagos like they wanted and was seemingly willing to give them royal power once she re-took control of Avalor.
  • Villain Song: "Don't Look Now", which also serves as a Motive Rant, with Carla revealing she never got to have a real stable childhood thanks to her father's nomadic lifestyle.
  • "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl: After she becomes a malvago, she says "If only mama could see us now!", which implies this, as did her happiness in an earlier episode when Shuriki (a kind of maternal figure) actually gave her praise.
  • Would Hurt a Child: While trying to steal the jewels from the royal family while on a carnaval float, she dislodges the second cart while Isabel (and her grandparents) are on it, despite that it could have crashed into something and hurt her. And of course, she's willing to hurt and possibly even kill teens her own age.
  • You Remind Me of X: Her feistiness reminds Zopilote of Ash when she was under his tutelage.

    Ash Delgado 

Ash Delgado

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ash_delgado_0.jpg

Voiced by: Grey Griffin

Victor's wife and Carla's mother. She seeks to become the most powerful malvago to have ever lived, and begins this self-imposed mission by attempting to kill Elena and absorb her magic into the Scepter of Night's jewel.


  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: While it isn't confirmed, this is implied to be the reason why she ended up with someone like Victor. Though if anything, she appears to be more bad than Victor...
  • Animal Motif: With a type of black-colored bird. Judging by her master (whose motif is black vultures) and what's native in Latin America, it may be a black vulture or a falcon.
  • Big Bad: Of "Naomi Knows Best", the Season 2 finale, and is setting up to be this for Season 3 as well.
  • Brought Down to Normal: She loses her tamborita in "Naomi Knows Best", but later gets a new one in "Sister of Invention".
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She freely admits that she's wicked and evil, believing that being bad is the key to success in this world.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: When she was a young girl, she only had her two pet mice as company. When her village was robbed by Zopilote, he also stole her mice and she never saw them again. Ever since, she's come to believe that you've got to be evil and strong to get the things you want and she went to pursue Zopilote as her teacher.
  • The Dark Side Will Make You Forget: She wants to become all-powerful and to have everything because everything was taken from her when she was a helpless little girl. Though it was the loss of her two pet mice that personally impacted her the most more than anything else about her village, and she ignores that she already has her family by her side in order to pursue more power as a magic user.
  • Dramatic Unmask: During the ending sequence of "Snow Place Like Home", a mysterious hooded figure that appears to be a malvago enters the Delgado household, and she removes her hood, revealing herself to be a woman... whom Carla recognizes as her mother.
  • Enemy Mine: She and her family team up with Esteban in "The Magic Within" to escape from the palace. After the avalanche, it's just her and Esteban. Neither of them particularly like each other, but Esteban is afraid for his life and desperately needs protection, while Ash needs him to get around Avalor without being found.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • Genuinely loves her daughter Carla, and shares a heartfelt embrace with her upon reunion. In "Not Without My Magic", she pretends not to fight with Victor whenever Carla is present, and she is distraught that she missed Carla growing up. Also, in "Naomi Knows Best", she only agrees to go back for Victor eventually when Carla tells her to. Then in Season 3, when Carla runs off to free her father after realizing that her mother doesn't really intend on doing it, Ash doesn't consider going after her anytime soon and spends the next few weeks focusing on solving the map to Takaina. And then in "The Magic Within", she doesn't even take a second to abandon her daughter when she refuses to run away with her after petrifying Victor.
    • Although the two get into a fight when they reunite, Victor and Ash ultimately do love each other. However, "Naomi Knows Best" implies that Ash wants to drive a wedge between Victor and Carla and still very much holds a grudge against him for depriving her of their daughter.
  • Faking the Dead: Victor and Carla believed she was dead when she didn't send anything home for seven years. She wasn't faking her death on purpose, but she was busy with malvago training under Zopilote.
  • Foreshadowing: That she's a malvago.
    • Victor and Carla showed strong interest in becoming malvagos.
    • After turning into malvagos, Carla says that her mother would be proud of them.
  • It's All About Me: It's heavily suggested that she places grabbing power for herself over caring for her family. She missed out on Carla's childhood because she was busy learning how to become a malvago despite Victor pointing out that she had good reasons to stop and return home, and whenever she proclaims that she'll become even more powerful with whatever plan she's concocted, Victor reminds her about him and Carla, which she half-heartedly adds. It ultimately leads to her unhesitatingly leaving her family behind when they no longer want to be with her because of how unpleasant and selfish she's become.
  • Jerkass: So much. She's condescending, cruel, evil, murderous, power-hungry, and wicked.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: She's evil, but her family (or at least Carla) keeps her from being too evil, right? No. She doesn't hesitate to abandon Carla with her petrified father when she refuses to leave with her and doesn't appear troubled by it.
  • Light Is Not Good: Her primary color is white and her magic manifests in silver, yet she's a Vile Villain, Saccharine Show on the level of Princess Ivy, Shuriki, and Vor.
  • MacGuffin: Zopilote gives her the map to Takaína, an ancient magical Maruvian forge that could grant her unlimited power. But first, she has to solve it...
  • Meaningful Name: She dresses in white and gray, colors that ash appears in.
  • Meaningful Rename: According to Word of God, she changed her name to Ash when she young and no one other than herself knows her birth name. We then learn that she had a Start of Darkness as a child when she first encountered Zopilote, who she describes as having "eyes as black as cinder". As she likely changed her name after Zopilote robbed her village, it makes sense she renamed herself "Ash" after Zopilote essentially destroyed her world, as she states in her Villain Song.
  • Morality Chain: Losing her two pet mice to Zopilote as a child caused her to believe that being evil and powerful is the key to getting what you want in life.
  • Mysterious Past: Unlike Victor, nothing about her past has ever been hinted at.
  • Near-Villain Victory: She almost manages to kill Elena and absorb her life force into the Scepter of Night's jewel, but is stopped at the last second before escaping with Carla.
  • Never My Fault: She blames Victor for depriving her of watching Carla grow up because he didn't follow what they had planned, despite Victor arguing that she could have told them she was busy with her malvago training or quit her training at any time to come back to them, as they otherwise had reason to believe she was dead after years of going off the grid.
  • Odd Name Out: Noticeably, she's the only member of the Latino cast whose name isn't conventionally used in Latino cultures. According to Gerber, Ash isn't her birth name, but she changed her name to Ash at a young age and no one other than herself knows her birth name.
  • Parental Abandonment:
  • Parental Sexuality Squick: In "Not Without My Magic", Carla repeatedly walks in on Victor and Ash being lovey-dovey towards each other, which they were faking except for the last one, to which Carla comments that it's getting gross now.
  • Parents as People: After reuniting, she and Victor get into a fight over her taking so long to come back and him apparently not waiting with Carla, although they make sure to hide this from Carla. Victor eventually gets tired of this and concedes to her, and the two become affectionate towards each other again... except Ash makes it obvious she's still hostile towards him and seems to be okay with leaving him behind.
  • Pet the Dog: During her ten-year apprenticeship under Zopilote, all she would ever talk about was Carla.
  • The Sociopath: It's clear that Ash doesn't care about anyone except herself and Carla, and is willing to commit murder if it means getting what she wants.
  • Villain Song: "The One and Only".
  • Walking Spoiler: She appears at the end of "Snow Place Like Home" and becomes the Arc Villain of Season 3.

    Zopilote 

Zopilote

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zopilote.jpg
Voiced by: Tony Shalhoub

A shapeshifting sorcerer and Ash's mentor.


  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He seems to care about Ash and comes to like Carla as well (helped that Carla was all Ash would ever talk about when he taught her).
  • Gonk: He's probably the most gonkiest-looking human or human-like character we've seen in the show so far. He's supposed to look like a vulture, so he's got a hunched back, a big schnoz to emulate a beak, and bulging eyes.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: In Spanish, "zopilote" means "vulture", specifically referring to black vultures.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can transform into a vulture.
    • His power seems to be specifically based on Mesoamerican mythology's naguals, humans (sometimes witches or warlocks) who can transform into a certain animal depending on their birthdate (similar to zodiac animals). They're usually evil and are said to have made a Deal with the Devil to get this power.

Marimonda

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marimonda.png
Voiced by: Noel Wells

A rogue forest sprite sealed away in the Realm of the Jaquins for wanting to overrun Avalor with plant life. Victor and Carla freed her under orders from Shuriki, but she was sealed away again by the efforts of Elena and company.


  • The Artifact: She is named for the marimonda, a local name for the white-bellied spider monkey in Colombia, as well as the name of a funny-looking monkey-elephant-man-thing character in Colombia's Barranquilla Carnival. This Marimonda fits neither of those descriptions.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Marimonda was the main antagonist of "Realm of The Jaquins", which was a way to finish off Season 1, but ultimately only meant to set up Shuriki's return.
  • Expy: According to Word of God, she was inspired by the Batman villain, Poison Ivy.
  • The Gadfly: She delights in annoying her opponents.
  • Green Thumb: Part of the package when you're a forest sprite.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: She shares some resemblance with her voice actor, Noel Wells.
  • Lone Wolf Boss: Even though Victor and Carla released her to cause havoc in Avalor, she has no affiliation with Shuriki, and is an independent threat on her own.
  • Pointy Ears: She has these.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: How she speaks.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was this until Victor and Carla intervened, and then put into a magical urn created by Quita Mos by Elena and friends.
  • Villain Song: "You Can't Catch Me".
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She believes that manmade creations like cities and machines are bad for the environment, but she wishes to produce overgrown plants with no regard for the lives of people.

Creatures

    Troyo 

Troyo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/troyo_6.png
Voiced by: Grant George

A mystical coyote who schemes to become king of the Avaloran jungle. He was kicked out for his actions years ago, but returns in the present to cause trouble.


  • Ascended Extra: Much like Fiero, he was just a one-shot antagonist before returning to become part of Shuriki's group of allies.
  • Blackmail: He captures Ciela and Avión, intending to use them as leverage to force Chief Zephyr to make him king of the jungle.
  • The Corrupter: He used to trick others into doing bad things as part of his goal to become king.

    • He gets caught in one of his own traps, courtesy of Skylar and Nico.
    • He gets permanently transformed into a butterfrog while trying to turn Zephyr and Mingo into butterfrogs.
  • Smug Snake: Deeply arrogant and full of himself for most of the episode, fully believing he deserves to be king. But after he is defeated and captured, he starts frantically negotiating for a lower rank in the jungle, even suggesting he be made "jester".
  • Those Wily Coyotes: Very crafty and cunning.
  • Trap Master: He lays several traps around his area of the jungle, allowing him to ensnare both the Jaquin trainees and Elena, Migs and Luna when they come to rescue them.

Voiced by: Steve Buscemi

A shape-shifting dolphin mob boss.


  • Bad Boss: Very abusive toward his laces—especially his second in command Torpe.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: You do not want to trust him, at all. No matter what kind of deal you make with him, he's the one who gains, and the other person gets nothing from it. Just sheer humiliation.
  • Devious Dolphins: He's an Amazon River Dolphin.
  • Exact Words: Daria made a deal with him to turn off the Coral Alarms to stop the treaty. Saloso then has his goons destroy the alarms so they'll stay off.

    Torpe 

Torpe

Voiced by: Ralph Garman

One of Saloso's goons.

Monsters

    Chatana 

Chatana

An ancient winged sorceress who specialized in summoning monsters. She was eventually banished from Vallestrella a long time ago.
