Princess Glimmer is the overall tritagonist of the Netflix Original series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
She is the princess of Bright Moon, and inherited her magical powers from her mother, Queen Angella.
A sweet, enthusiastic and driven girl, Glimmer truly believes that she can achieve anything if she has her friends by her side. Always looking to forge her own path in life, Glimmer is motivated by love, loyalty, friendship and fairness.
Glimmer serves as the secondary deuteragonist of season 1, the deuteragonist of whole season 2, the second half of season 3, the anti-villainous central antagonist of season 4, and the tritagonist for the first half of season 3 and the whole season 5.
She is voiced by Karen Fukuhara, who also voiced Kipo Oak in Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts.
Glimmer is shown to be a short tempered and often quite stubborn girl. Glimmer is also shown to be a rebel girl as she often disobeys her mother, and even when she was sented in her room she tends to act against her mother's wishes. Her rebellious personality has manifested itself in the form of impulsiveness as she often acts without thinking, which lands her in trouble with her mother or on the battlefield.
Glimmer in general has shown to be a kind, enthusiastic and supportive girl who is a very loyal friend to the people she befriends, and is willing to accept consequence to protect others. An example is when Shadow Weaver attempted to erase Adora's memories, Glimmer forced herself to teleport to save Adora, which lead her powers to glitch and cause her pain.
Glimmer has shown to doubt herself when she realizes what her impulsive approach gets her and needs others to reassure her as she admits she feels that others don't take her seriously.
Described by her mother; Glimmer is a headstrong, temperamental and stubborn girl, but also brave, as she is willing to stand by her friends and fight despite what her circumstances are.
In season 4, Glimmer's personality takes a darker turn. She begins to drive her friends away, and begins to blame them for her mother's death, rather than the Horde. She mostly listens to Shadow Weaver, ignores genuine advice, and abuses her authority as queen. She devotes her entire time to destroying the Horde by any means necessary, exemplified by attempting to use the Heart of Etheria despite the warnings that the planet will be destroyed.
In season 5, Glimmer learns from her mistakes and strives to become a better person. She becomes more mature and less childish like her mother, but still brave, like her father.
Glimmer appears as a young girl in her late teens. She has pinkish-purple hair cut in a short bob and purple eyes. She wears a blue cape in the shape of wings and has two small wings on her back like her mother. She wears purple and blue boots with the Bright Moon crest and a dark purple sleeveless romper-like piece of clothing with a matching sleeveless cape the same color as her eyes. She also wears a pair of fingerless blue and white gloves and has an aura of sparkles around her at all times.
Glimmer has magical powers that she inherited from Queen Angella, her mother. Her powers include the ability to teleport, create sparkles, and generate blasts of blinding energy. She must recharge her powers after an unknown period of time by laying under the Moonstone Runestone. She has difficulty teleporting more than two people and will pass out if she overused her magic. Her magic seems to increase when she is experiencing strong emotions like fear and anger. Glimmer also has a pair of wings, but they are too small to lift her off the ground.
Glimmer wears purple battle armor, and draws power from the Moonstone. She also wields her father’s staff in The Battle of Bright Moon.
