She-Ra: Tales of Pretheria
Part 1 – Birth of a Hero
In present day Etheria there was a girl named Adora who took on the name She-Ra. Few people heard of this girl and those who had tended to not think very highly of her, due to her not being a particularly gifted warrior. But in death, Adora proved her value as a hero and those who know her story are likely to share the tale of her bravery with others, making little if any comment about her beginnings. However, although few Etherians know of Adora, they know the name She-Ra, a woman from the pasts whose feats are now part of Etherian myth… and this is the tale of her life.
Nearly three millennia ago, around the time of He-Ro on Eternia, She-Ra was born. At the time Etheria wasn’t united under any one ruler and the world was broken up into different factions that ruled their own kingdoms. Although there was the occasional war, for the most part the factions coexisted peacefully, not inferring in each other’s domains.
Details of She-Ra’s childhood are vague at this point in time. It is known that she came from a people who lived in northern Etheria and that her parents were considered nobility of the Galen region. She-Ra is believed to have been a tomboy in her youth, excelling in athletics and the arts of war, but as she grew older she became one of the most wondrously beautiful females in the land. She-Ra was tall, 5’9” and her body was slender, yet athletic. Her eyes were dark blue, and her hair was a golden blonde that reflected magnificently in the sunlight. No man who saw her could turn their heads away.
Although many potential suitors attempted to woo She-Ra, She-Ra never showed any interest in them and preferred to focus on her martial training. She-Ra spent her days training in swordsmanship and archery and her nights were spent reading the literature that her family had amassed over the years.
This time of peace was not to last. Eventually the Covenant arrived on Etheria.
