Nora is the tritagonist of Disney's Pete's Dragon. She was played by the late Helen Reddy.
Nora is a slender woman with curly and long, brown ponytailed hair and skin.
She is a kind woman who lives with her father, Lampie, and takes good special care of the little orphan boy, Pete, who is aided by his dragon friend Elliot the Dragon from those nasty abusive people, The Gogans. She is in love with Paul (her fiance) who becomes Pete's foster father.
Pete and Elliott visit Passamaquoddy, where the unseen Elliott's clumsiness causes Pete to be labeled a source of bad luck. Lampie, the lighthouse keeper, stumbles out of a tavern and encounters Pete. Elliott makes himself visible and Lampie, terrified, runs to the townsfolk. Naturally, they shake this off as another drunken rant, when his daughter, Nora, arrives. Afterwards, she leads him back to the lighthouse and puts him to bed. In a seaside cave Pete scolds Elliott for causing trouble. As they make up, Lampie's daughter Nora appears, warning that Pete isn't safe staying in there because of the ongoing tides from the sea. When she realizes he's orphaned and not from the area, she offers him food and shelter at the lighthouse and he accepts.
Pete tells Nora of the abuse he suffered from the Gogans, and as she offers to let him spend the night at the lighthouse, they strike up a friendship (“It’s Not Easy”). He learns the story of her fiancé Paul, whose ship was reported lost at sea the year before. He promises to ask Elliott about Paul. She believes that Elliott is Pete's imaginary friend.
