The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
Maudra Fara is the leader of the Stonewood Clan, accompanied by her pet Fizzgig Baffi. A firm and fearless leader, she initially doesn't trust Rian, believing he has gone mad.

When she returns to Stone-in-the-Wood, Fara rallies her clan for war against the SkekSis, which begins the Stonewood Rebellion. Mother Aughra urges her to rely on the survival of her clan instead of risking destruction. As she plans her attack, the Arathim, allied with the SkekSis, possess her and the Stonewood Clan and bring them to the Castle of the Crystal.
Fara, with Brea and Seladon, is shackled and gagged by the SkekSis and a possessed Tavra, about to be drained of her essence for SkekMal's revival. Aughra interferes, bargaining her life for them. Fara, Brea, and Seladon are freed. She sets the rest of the prisoners free, but Tavra is mortally wounded by SkekSil.
Later, Fara apologizes to Rian for not believing him and participates in the second battle for Stone-in-the-Wood. skekOk launches her blades at Seladon, but Fara pushes her out of the way and is wounded. Eventually, Fara succumbs to her wounds.
