The Goddess - Trainer of He-Man
Real Name: Sharella
After the death of King Grayskull, the Power of the Universe was transferred from the Sword of He to the Council of Elders, who hid it deep within his castle. Knowing the full sword was the key to channeling the power again, they split it in two to prevent it from falling into the hands of evil. For five thousand years, they waited for a worthy heir to be born. During this time their spirit guide, the creature known as The Goddess of Eternia, trained secret heroic guardians to keep the two halves of the sword separated. Many of these brave warriors took the name "He-Man" in honor of the sword they protected giving birth to many different legends of the protector of Eternia.
Origin # 1 (Early Mini-Comics and Publications)
The Goddess had a similar role as the Sorceress, in the beging stages of the franchise. She was the one who wore the Snake Armor Headress and bore an unmistakable likeness to Tee-La or Teela. She was only deplicted as having green skin in the first ever mini-comic. The rest of her appearences are shown as flesh toned. She was tasked at guarding the Caverns Of Power. The Goddess was a powerful, magical being, who could telepathically communicate with animals, as well as many other magical powers. She was the being, who gave He-Man his harness, shield and his half of the Sword Of Power. Once the Sorceress was introduced to the franchise, the Goddess was replaced by the Sorceress Of Grayskull. Both the Goddess and Teela are represented by the same action figure, suggesting a link between the two. In "The Tale of Teela!," it is established that the Goddess, who was also named Teela, and that the warrior-woman is named after her because she was created from a portion of the Goddess's power, or cloned from her.
