Wow, did I just say that?
Eldora, the Fairy Godmother, is a wise and powerful fairy, but odd, funny and clumsy at the same time. She is also shown to be quite eccentric and vivacious.
Pre-SeriesAccording to Professor Palladium, when she was still young, she studied at Alfea, excelled in botany and taught floral magic in the Alfea Greenhouse. When she left the school, the greenhouse was abandoned and was kept as a secret. After that, she lived in the Forest of Flowers in Gardenia and hid her house in it. There, she met Selina and Bloom. She saw the potential within Selina and became her Fairy Godmother. She taught her simple spells and trained her with good morals. Subsequently, she became the keeper of the Library of Alexandria in Egypt. She knew the power of the Legendarium, but never used it before. When she brought Selina there, she accidentally read the legend of the Hawk Spirit out loud. Because of her panic, she turned it into a pig, and Selina returned it to the book. Because of the dangers of the Legendarium, she traveled around the world, trying to know how to lock it. During her travel, she left the Legendarium in her house. There, Acheron, an evil wizard told Selina that she must work for him, and he will give her extraordinary powers and help her harness her powers in controlling the book. He gave her powers which turned her into the "Witch of Snakes". Eldora returned and kept the book from her. On a night of a full moon, she chose Acheron over Eldora, and freed the book from her protective spell. Then, she stole the book and fled from the Forest of Flowers.
In "The Lost Library", Daphne and Faragonda tell the Winx about the Legendarium and Eldora, a fairy godmother who used to be the keeper of Library of Alexandria until it was lost. Daphne also tells the Winx about the Library of Alexandria which is located in Egypt, Earth. She tells that Eldora kept a diary, where all of the secrets of the Legendarium is written.
In "The Fairy Godmother", the Winx meet Eldora and Bloom inquires about Selina. But later the Trix arrive and attack. The Winx come out and prepare to fight. Despite the Trix's taunting, the Winx proceed to fight. At that time, Selina summoned the Ectoplasm Specters into the Forest of Flowers. The Winx try to fight them off, but the specters were intangible, making their attacks useless. They were nearly overwhelmed by the specter's near-immortality, then Eldora comes out and uses her powers she was able to summon forth counter-myths to the Legendarium. She calls upon the spirits of the Lenugia which eliminate the specters. Seeing them defeated, the Trix fled.
Since she was once an Alfea student, she knows powerful magic spells, which are related to floral magic. In an episode, she spoke a legend out loud, which used the powers of the flower against the Ectoplasm Specters. This might mean that she has the ability to use the power of the Legendarium even without reading it. In another episode, she used a spell that turned someone into a bird.
