Ileena was a memorable character that appeared in the He-Man season one episode "A Friend in Need". I always like to think of her as an early precursor to She-Ra; even though her personality is nothing like She-Ra's. Here I present some interesting illustrations of the character by the artists at Filmation; these illustrations were given to the animators and artists so that they had a feel for her character. Interestingly you can see that they originally intended for her to have body armor all the way down to her skirt; and yet in the final produced episode they had this area illustrated and painted as bare skin!
