Regarding Teela...


Val, you mentioned something during the Teela bio discussion on Roast Gooble Dinner, and that made me think of something:

Maybe SHARELLA = The Sorceress + Teela.

Sharella is the "Trainer of he-man"

Teela trains Adam...

Sharella was the guide of the Elders

The Sorceress sort of functions the same way...

-----

I wonder if that's what happened... Perhaps Sharella didn't train Adam/He-Man... maybe she trained Oo-Larr, Wun-Dar, etc.

Sharella protects a sword that splits in half... perhaps she was split in two by a young Keldor... OR by Karak Nul (resulting in his severe butt-kicking and death/curse)... as a twisted punishment... or maybe she did it to herself...

Apparently the Elders consolidated their power and hid it in Grayskull just before Adam was born (at least according to the 200X continuity... which seems to be heavily favored here). Since they no longer resided in the Hall of Wisdom, someone had to protect the Power and the castle. Sharella, being their spirt-guide, either split herself, or was split and therefore could be in two places at once: Castle Grayskull as the Sorceress, and Training THE be-all end-all He-Man: Adam as Teela.
