Shadow Weaver was one of Hordak’s most powerful warriors. Among the numerous powers that Shadow Weaver displayed were: Shape-shifting, teleportation, the ability to steal others’ shadows (i.e. Orko’s), the creation of shadow coils to ensnare her foes, the capability to open cross-dimensional gateways, and a battalion of skeletal Dark Riders at her command.
Origin #1 (Filmation)
Shortly before the arrival of the Horde on Etheria, she—alongside Castaspella, the future ruler of Mystacore—was a student of the wizard Norwyn. The three mystics were among the few who knew where Etheria’s Council of Kings had hidden themselves at the start of the invasion.
Origin #2 (MOTUC Official Bios)
Born in the Etherian Kingdom of Mystacor, Beatrix was once known as Light Spinner and served as an apprentice to the great mage, Norwyn. When Hordak arrived on Etheria during his exile in Despondos, he promised her great power in return for information and help in overthrowing Bright Moon and the surrounding kingdoms. Her powers were greatly enhanced through a magical gem whose power also induced an irreversible change in her appearance and mental state. She betrayed Norwyn and her fellow magical student Castaspella, leading Horde Troopers to their hidden magic archives. In Horror Hall, Beatrix took the name Shadow Weaver, using her black magic to fight the Great Rebellion all the while secretly planning to overthrow Hordak and claim his power for her own!
Trivia (Clawful94): Shadow Weaver was voiced by Linda Gary in the Filmation Cartoons.
