List of Winx Club characters

Winx Club is an animated series co-produced by Rainbow SpA and Nickelodeon, which are both part of ViacomCBS. Its characters were created and designed by comic artist Iginio Straffi. The show takes place in a magical dimension where a group of fairy warriors defends their universe from villains. The group, named the Winx Club, attends the Alfea College for Fairies.

The main fairies in their 3D designs, clockwise from top right: Tecna, Flora, Stella, Bloom, Aisha, and Musa.

The Winx Club is led by Bloom, a student from Earth who thought she was an average human until discovering her flame-based powers. The original group includes Stella, the Fairy of the Shining Sun; Flora, the Fairy of Nature; Musa, the Fairy of Music; and Tecna, the Fairy of Technology. They share an apartment on the campus of Alfea. The Fairy of Waves, Aisha, is introduced in the second season and becomes the group's sixth member. The Fairy of Animals, Roxy, is introduced in the fourth season and occasionally joins the other fairies.

The characters of Winx Club have become popular with audiences. Critical response to the characters has been positive, with praise for their positive relationships and presentation of gender roles. The characters have appeared in a variety of media, including the spin-off series World of Winx, a comic book serial, and video games. In 2012, new episodes of the series incorporated CGI-animated sequences that rendered the characters in 3D.[1] A live-action series inspired by Winx Club, Fate: The Winx Saga, debuted in 2021 and features some of the original characters.

In the original series (seasons 1–4), the characters' mouths were animated to match the Italian voice actors,[2] who recorded their lines in Rome. The revived series, beginning with the hour-long specials, was produced in English first. The specials and seasons 5–6 were animated to match the Hollywood-based cast,[2] who recorded their lines at the Atlas Oceanic studio. Season 7 was also matched to Nickelodeon and Rainbow's English scripts,[3] but due to budget cuts, Viacom relocated the voice cast from Hollywood to New York City. Only actors from the two original casts are listed below.

Creation and production historyEdit

Iginio Straffi developed the Winx Club characters for the short pilot episode "Magic Bloom," which was finished in 2001. The characters' outfits were modeled on those of traditional European fairies,[4] while their appearances were loosely inspired by popular celebrities of the time. In a 2011 interview with IO Donna, Straffi stated Britney Spears served as an inspiration for Bloom, Cameron Diaz for Stella, Jennifer Lopez for Flora, Pink for Tecna, and Lucy Liu for Musa.[5] Straffi wanted the fairies to represent "the women of today"[6] and to look more modern than classic examples like la Fata Turchina.[7]

After holding test screenings of the pilot, Straffi was unhappy with the audience's unenthusiastic reaction to the characters' outdated clothing style.[4][8] He hired Italian fashion designers to give the characters a more modern appearance.[9][10] Flora underwent several changes because Straffi felt test audiences disliked her design.[11] She was originally drawn with glasses and a lighter skin tone; for the full series, her glasses were removed[11] and she was given darker skin to look "more Latin".[4] The Winx fairies' male counterparts, the Specialists, were created in response to a request that the series should feature male leads.[12]

According to Iginio Straffi, each of the Winx fairies' personalities were made as different as possible so "teenagers from all over the world can identify themselves with the character they think they are most like".[12] After the premiere of the first season worldwide, the production team heard that American viewers noticed the absence of Black characters in the show.[11] In response, Straffi designed a sixth fairy named Aisha, who has darker skin than the others.[11] Her design was loosely inspired by Beyoncé[5] and she was introduced in the first episode of the second season.[13] The fourth season introduces a seventh member, Roxy,[14] who occasionally joins the other fairies.

After Viacom became a co-owner of the Rainbow studio in 2011,[15] new seasons of Winx Club entered production at Viacom's Nickelodeon Animation Studio and Rainbow.[16] For this relaunched series (which began with four specials that retell Bloom's origin story), Viacom hired popular actors to voice many of the characters. These stars included Ariana Grande as Diaspro,[17] Elizabeth Gillies as Daphne, Keke Palmer as Aisha, Matt Shively as Sky, and Daniella Monet as Mitzi.[18]

The Trix return as the main villains in season 6, at the end of which, they are locked inside the Legendarium. In season 7, Brafilius finds the Trix and accidentally releases them.

    • Icy is the eldest of the trio and their leader, whose powers are derived from ice. She despises Bloom and is the most competitive with the Winx. Icy is more aggressive than Darcy but calmer than Stormy. In season 3, her origin was retconned as the crowned Princess of Dyamond who decided to become the strongest witch ever so she could reverse the destruction of her realm and the transformation of her younger sister Sapphire into a white fox by an evil Shaman Witch. Icy's Italian voice actress is Tatiana Dessi and her Hollywood voice actress is Larisa Oleynik.[23]
    • Darcy, the middle of the trio, derives her powers from shadows and darkness.

After being freed, Valtor aspires to become the greatest sorcerer of the magical universe by conquering each realm. At the end of the third season, Valtor turns into a demon and unleashes a spell that almost destroys Magix. The Winx release the spells that he had stolen.

    • Liliss, who has power over darkness.
    • Tharma, who has power over storms.
  • The Wizards of the Black Circle are the four main villains of the fourth season. In the past, they developed a way to resist fairy magic, which allowed them to imprison all of Earth's fairies and steal magic from the planet. They battle the Winx throughout the first half of the season but they are defeated when the Winx use their Believix powers to convince the humans of Gardenia to believe in magic and fairies. This renders the Wizards' powers useless and makes them vulnerable to the attack of the Winx. Their powers are weakened and they must hide in the sewers. In the season finale, the remaining Wizards are frozen in the Omega Dimension and fall into a crevice. While the Wizards of the Black Circle share certain powers, like opening a Dark Gate to capture fairies and cast enchantments, they also have individual powers:

Selina promised to release him in return for extraordinarily strong powers, knowledge of the potential of its powers, and the ability to rule alongside him. Acheron turned against her after being released. Selina contacted Bloom telepathically and the two friends managed to imprison Acheron once again inside the Legendarium along with the Trix. Seeing the error of her ways, Selina willingly uses the Legendarium's key to lock the magic book forever. She is later reunited with her fairy godmother and mentor, Eldora, and welcomed back as a student.

Acheron's Italian voice actor is Marco Bassetti and his Hollywood voice actor is Sam Riegel.[36]
  • Politea is the main antagonist of The Mystery of the Abyss. She is an evil Sirenix fairy who originally fought alongside Daphne to protect the Magic Dimension and the Infinite Ocean from the Ancestral Witches.

Over the years, Politea had lived in a shark-shaped cave in the Infinite Ocean. Darcy and Stormy stole Politea's evil Sirenix abilities and she faded from reality. In The Mystery of the Abyss, Politea returns as a grayish-blue-colored spirit and allies herself with the Trix to obtain a powerful object called the Pearl of the Depths. Politea persuades the Trix to manipulate Tritannus into abducting Sky and using him to obtain the powers of the Emperor's Throne. When Tritannus acquires the pearl, she reveals herself to him and uses her dark magic to control him and the Trix. Politea is destroyed or blasted far away by a powerful Sirenix convergence of the Winx. Her Italian voice actress is Alessandra Korompay.
  • Kalshara and Brafilius are the main antagonists of the seventh season. Kalshara is a shape-shifter and Brafilius is her clumsy brother who has dark magic powers. Their goal is to capture all of the Fairy Animals of the Magic Dimension and acquire their power. Kalshara and Brafilius were once humans but became animal-like creatures when Kalshara gained wild magic. Brafilius stole the stone of memories from Roxy and used it to travel back in time with the Winx. When Kalshara got the ultimate power, Brafilius betrayed her, stole it for himself, and used it to summon the most power animals in the magic dimension. The Trix then captured Brafilius and turned him into a dog, forcing Kalshara to form a temporary truce with the Winx to help restore him. When the Trix were banished to limbo, the ultimate power was removed from Brafilius. Kalshara was so furious over losing the ultimate power that she disowned Brafilius as her brother but fell into a magic vortex when confronted by the cave creatures who defended Brafilius. Kalshara was gone but Brafilius had a change of heart and now lives with the friendly cave creatures. Kalshara and Brafilius are respectively voiced by Emilia Costa and Carlo Scipioni in Italian.
  • Prince Argan (named Obscurum while under Valtor's darker magic) is a secondary antagonist in the eighth season. He is the brother of Queen Dorana of Lumenia. Jealous of Queen Dorana's power over their people, he channeled the energy of Valtor and used the power of the stars to revive him.
