    So, who's going to give us the scoop on Casta and Shokoti's bios...?

    I was just thinking: we still haven't seen either Castaspella or Shokoti's bios yet, and whichever of the phenomenal reviewers gets their review up first--Fwoosh, Pixel-Dan, etc.--has the honor of delivering the scoop to all of us eager and anxiously awaiting fans. I think that's a first, right? A reviewer breaking the scoop on a bio for MOTUC?

    (How's that for incentive for one of those fine folks to get their review up ASAP?)

    Dan posted Shokoti's bio on facebook, it's ok, but I don't like her being a Gar, would prefer if she was a straight up demon. he will post here soon I imagine, I don't want to steal his image.

    Nope, Pixel Dan said that Mattel was unable to send out Clamp Champ and Icer in time, but did get him August's figures instead.

    Ahh no worries. Having just said I like all the bios I am a bit unsure about the Castaspella one... lol

    Also her face looks a different tone than her body in those pics. Hopefully it is just the lighting

    Castaspella looks awesome! I'm really looking forward to more pics at SDCC. Her special friend Frosta will be patiently awaiting her arrival.

    I think that it's funny that Shokoti's bio talks about her blasting spells out of her hand yet they did not give her a spell casting hand (or two since she comes with no accessories to hold).... oh Mattel....

    So in the MOTUC canon Castaspella becomes leader of the Great Rebellion First not Glimmer or Angella. I think she is special friends with Angella and Frosta because they are Matriarchs of their respective kingdoms, yet Castaspella bio mentions nothing about Mysticor. Also i am calling it right now, if we get Lord Masque, he is going to get the Shaping Staff as his accessory. Shokotis bio states that he is shapeshifter, it would only make sense that he got that as his weapon.

    Casta is A leader in the Great Rebellion, not THE leader. Like Adora is another leader in the Great Rebellion.

    Castaspella - Enchantress Who Hypnotizes
    Real Name: Esmeralda


    Beautiful friend to She-Ra, Castaspella is one of the most powerful mages on Etheria. After the Horde claimed her beautiful planet as a new homeworld during their banishment in Despondos, Castaspella became a leader in the Great Rebellion helping to defend the people of Etheria with her magic. She has been known to temporarily hypnotize her foes, and although she can be a bit flighty at times, her strength and courage have helped her fight the oppression of Hordak. She is special friends with both Angella and Frosta and only uses her magic for good.
    Shokoti - Evil Witch of Eternia
    Real Name: Shokoti


    Possessing incredible powers fueled by darkness, Shokoti was the most dangerous sorceress on the Dark Hemisphere of Eternia. Fearing her plan to cover the entire planet in darkness, Shokoti's fellow blue-skinned Gars lured the nefarious witch into the sunlight and buried her with her beast companion in the House of Darkness. Many years later, the shapeshifting wizard Masque raised the temple from the Sands of Time and opened the door to darkness once more until He-Man heroically defeated Shokoti and the Sleeping Beast forever. Shokoti uses the darkness and magic to cast illusions and project energy blasts from her hands.

    TG doesn't add any newly acquired specific Filmation information to the bios to help flesh them out. We asked him about this a while ago. Surprisingly, even bios that haven't been made public are subject to this rule.

    And I don't really see her as a flighty person...
    Is that a reference to her crush on Prince Adam? I don't remember my Filmation all too well (since I'm more of an MYP and Mini-Comic fan), but I remember her grinning like a Cheshire cat and casting a spell on him once.

    And Esmeralda fits as a nice name for her...hot chick with elderly voice and all...

    You know, it's a pity he didn't use the idea that MYP was originally going to feature Shokoti in an episode...he could have ran with that since he has access to all of these notes from the writing team.

    Actually, I don't think that he could have. All the Filmation characters have copyrights and it would be a violation of the copyrights to alter or deviate from the stories presented in the Filmation toons. Copyrights are different from trademarks and can protect creative rights like characters and their likenesses in other forms (including toys) and their backstory. Mattel only has the rights to reproduce in figure form the character, but likely does not have the right to write additional material for that character whether that be in stories, bios, or animated media. So, my hunch is nearly all the Filmation bios for future characters will closely follow what we have seen in the cartoon.

    Possibly he did use some of it with the whole Gar angle. I know some didn't want her to be a Gar, and I don't much like that name myself--as if Tolkein had called his elves the Bubs or something. But personally I'm glad she's of their race because villains like her belonging to the group better explain the prejudice against them by Keldor's time. Also to be fair, who knows if MYP would have not had He-Man defeat her "forever" as well.
