To focus and intensify her magic, she linked her powers with her gold armbands, that unleash magical discs and powerful magical blasts. Unfortunately without them she is virtually powerless. Her magical specialties include: teleportation, telepathy, materialization, transformation and manipulative spells. Castaspella has also demonstrated on various occasions, her vast knowledge of all things magical and mystical.
She supports the Great Rebellion, greatly, and though she maintains the duty of protecting her kingdom, she will aid them if they are in need of any magical assistance.
After Lightspinner betrayed the Mysticor for the Evil Horde, and transformed into Shadow Weaver, the evil Mortella conquered Mystacor and chose to torture Castapella by transforming her into an old senile woman. Mortella could not destroy Castaspella's spirit.
When Mortella captured the rebels Bow and She-Ra, Castaspella risked her own safety to help them escape. When She-Ra extinguished the Blue Flame, she broke Mortella's enchantments and restored Castaspella's youth and powers. With the Flame gone however, Castaspella's full range of magic was limited to the castle of Mysticor, but she pledged all her knowledge and wisdom to help the Rebellion against Shadow Weaver and the Horde.
After she had worked for her power and had supposedly been seen fit to act as ruler of Mysticor, the enchanters made her Queen Of Mysticor.
She trains youngsters in the ways of magic. Ariel, one her students, seemed to be highly ambitious, which led her into trouble on many occasions. However, the wisdom of She-Ra and Castaspella taught Ariel, that inexperienced hands must learn how to use her power properly.
Like Frosta, Castaspella is smitten with She-Ra's brother, He-Man.
