Shadow Weaver’s Hold on Adora: She-Ra’s Mistress of Manipulation

Shadow Weaver is easily the most manipulative character in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Surely even her powers would be no match for Adora’s good nature though, right? There’s no way Adora could have gone through with the attack on Thaymor, even if she hadn’t become She-Ra, is there?

Not so fast. Adora may be elemental good, but Shadow Weaver is elemental manipulation. Plus, she’s got tricks up her sleeve. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power would have turned out quite differently for Adora had she not happened upon the Sword of Protection.
