Dawn is the youngest daughter of King Dagda, the younger sister Marianne and is the tritagonist of the 2015 animated film Strange Magic. Unlike her sister, she is more feminine than her and she is unaware of that her elf friend Sunny is in love with her.

She was voiced by Meredith Anne Bull.

Role in the film

Dawn is excited for Marianne's upcoming wedding to Roland. However, Marianne calls off the wedding after discovering that Roland was cheating on her with another fairy.

Sometime later, Dawn is feeling distraught about the upcoming Spring Ball over which boy she could meet there. Dawn's best friend and secret admirer; an elf named Sunny tries to cheer her up with a song. However, the pair are nearly killed by a giant lizard, but are saved just in time by Marianne (who has become hardened and disillusioned following Roland's infidelity).

After The Sugar Plum Fairy creates a love potion for him, Sunny tries to expose it to Dawn in order for her to reciprocate his feelings for her. However, Dawn, just after being hit with tge potion, is soon captured by The Bog King, who demands that the love potion be given to him by Moon Down or else he would harm Dawn.

Due to the effects of the potion, which makes the target fall in love with the first person they see, Dawn falls in love with The Bog King, who has Dawn imprisoned for his own sanity.

Later during the battle against Roland's army and The Bog King's army, Dawn along with The Sugar Plum Fairy, is freed by Sunny.

After Marianne defeats Roland, Sunny admits his feelings for Dawn, who reciprocates. Dawn also encourages Marianne to admit her feelings for The Bog King.


While Marianne is self-conscious and cynical, Dawn is optimistic and outgoing. She is outwardly annoyed by her sister's overprotective behavior, but she still cares deeply for her. She is seen on more than one occasion to flirt with a handful of other men, fickle over which boy she wants to pursue, and even flirts with total strangers. She seemed completely unaware of Sunny's crush on her until his cove broke the spell over her, to which she accepted his affections with open arms.

When under the influence of the love potion, Dawn becomes obsessively infatuated with the Bog King. She becomes deaf and blind to all of the Bog King's threats and acts of apathy, not minding being imprisoned and singing to him when around him or imprisoned. She follows whatever he tells her no matter what and denies her sister's rescue attempt. She does manage to breach his walls however when giving him a boutonniere, though this just barely gets a positive response from him.

While naive in certain things, she is not one to hold a grudge or any kind of prejudice, knowing about Marianne and Bog King's feelings for one another and encouraging them.

Powers and Abilities

While possessing no magical abilities or combat skills, her wings do grant her the ability to fly and she as the skill of singing.
