Glimmer - Heroic Princess Of Illumination
Glimmer is the closest a character in the She-Ra series has come to being anorphan. After her father Micah left to fight the Horde when Glimmer was a little girl, she and her mother Angella virtually lost all hope for his return. Coming from an originally happy family, Glimmer wasdistraught when her mother too disappeared in a battle. For years, nobody knew what had happened to Angella, until a spy discovered that she was being held prisoner by Hunga, Queen of the Harpies of Talon Mountain. By this time, Glimmer, Bow and a group of mere villagers had formed a rebellion against the Horde. Glimmer, however, left thepost to Adora when her mother was rescued by He-Man and She-Ra and she returned to her position as Princess of Bright Moon. Her father would return for a brief visit, but would soon leave again to help free all the other kingdoms in Etheria, from Hordak's evil reign.
However, changing her status from a rebel leader to the daughter of a rebel Queen may not have been an enormously successful move. Like Bow, Madame Razz and Adora, Glimmer would be seen out of Bright Moon orthe Whispering Woods in disguise, in case of any attempted Hordeassaults. Glimmer, like her mother Angella, has been given powersover light. This vast range includes releasing energy bolts from herhands, dazzling brightness from her chest and also from nowhere. Other less prominent powers for Glimmer were showcased throughout the series too - her ability to disappear and then re-form, teleport, and also fly. This skill, however, was a season two addition - Glimmer was incapable of saving herself from a fall from a cliff once in season one. Making Glimmer an even more superior member of the Rebellion, however, is her one-off invisibility power, used to escort Bow and a prisoner out of the Fright Zone dungeons
