This article is about the She-Ra and the Princesses of Power character. You may be looking for the original character.

Adora, also known as the warrior princess She-Ra, is also the main titular protagonist of the Netflix Original series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. An orphan, Adora is originally a member of the Horde and believed that they were a force for good on Etheria. When Adora finds the Sword of Protection and transforms into She-Ra, she comes to learn the truth about the Horde and turns against them. She finds a new home and family with the Rebellion, as she unites and leads a group of powerful princesses to fight evil.


Adora is both hard-working and respectful. When she worked for the Horde, she presumably was smarter and tougher than most of her teammates, which led her to become a captain later on. Adora is normally logical and calm, abstaining from rash decisions. She often stresses being prepared and on time. Unlike her childhood best friend, Catra, Adora is not lazy and relaxing is very hard for her when she knows there is work to be done.

Even after her defection to the Rebellion, Adora's fundamental personality is still conditioned by the austerely regimented life of a Horde soldier. As such, she finds the relatively luxurious and relaxed life with the Rebellion completely alien to her. For instance, Adora initially has trouble sleeping in her own private quarters because she is used to sleeping in Horde's barracks with multiple comrades in the same room. Furthermore, Adora will reflexively follow military etiquette towards her superiors in the Rebellion and any important new experience is approached with a tactical and strategic mentality.


As She-Ra

She-Ra is imbued with super-strength and some limited healing powers. She also has a connection to the ancient First Ones of Etheria.


She-Ra wields the magical Sword of Protection, which has the ability to shapeshift into a shield. The Sword of Protection also houses a runestone. She-Ra wears white and gold battle armor with a red cape.



  • Unlike her 1985 counterpart (who speaks with a British accent), Adora speaks with an American accent.
