Elora Danan

Elora Danan (formally styled as Her Royal Highness the Sacred Princess Elora Danan) is the tetartagonist of the 1988 fantasy film, Willow. She is a female Daikini. A gifted child born with a certain mark, she was prophecized to become empress of Tir Asleen, Galladoorn, Nockmaar, and Cashmere.


Fearful of a prophecy that a girl would be born who would bring about her downfall, the evil Queen Bavmorda was imprisoned all pregnant women in the realm. Elora is born in prison and identified as the prophesied one by a birthmark on her arm. However, Bavmorda has showed up and is trying to kill her at birth, but her mother convinced a midwife to smuggle her out. Both her mother and the midwife died to keep her safe.

After her midwife's death, Elora is recruited by a young Nelwyn farmer named Willow Ufgood, who while initially wanted nothing to do with her but later embraced his role as her protector and attempts to take her to Tir Asleen. At some point, Bavmorda's efforts to destroy Elora, preventing the prophecy, led to Bavmorda's fall.

Meanwhile, Willow must leaves Elora in the caring arms of Madmartigan and Bavmorda's daughter Sorsha, the new queen.
