Wow, did I just say that?
Headmistress Mavilla is the former Headmistress of Alfea.
Mavilla has fair skin and dark brown hair tied into a bun with parts that are turning white. She wears a golden scarf on her neck that is tied at the back, a long pale green dress decorated with prints shaped like butterflies and a golden belt. Over these she wears a darker green coat with pale green flower prints and golden borders.
Mavilla is kind but very strict and was academically very rigorous since, when Roxy told her that she and the Winx were from a place where Fairy Animals lived free, she said that preferred using the Tome of Nature to train the Fairy Animals. She was especially more strict towards Faragonda since she was very clumsy.
Mavilla was the Headmistress of Alfea during the time when Faragonda, Griselda and Kalshara were still students. Mavilla was later succeeded by Faragonda as Headmistress. It is not known where she presently is, or whether she is still alive.
In "Young Fairies Grow Up," she introduces the fairy animal exhibition, but when it got disrupted she quickly ordered her lion-like fairy animals to prevent the other fairy animals from escaping. Later, when the Winx with Faragonda returned back to Alfea and went to her office she was seen scolding Faragonda about the exhibition's disruption and she gratefully thanked the Winx for their intervention, but when Roxy told her that she and the Winx are from a place where the fairy animals live free in their natural habitat she tells that by using the Tome of Nature they can train the fairy animals.
In "The Golden Butterfly," she is about to erase the memories of the fairies of Alfea when the Winx arrive before she can complete her spell. She welcomes them and has Faragonda take them to the secret garden.
- The word Mavilla has had many terms for over 400 years, by 1693 the word became firmly stabilized as "Mobila" or "Movila".
