Ofelia is the main protagonist of the critically-acclaimed Spanish movie Pan's Labyrinth.
She is played by Ivana Baquero.
Ofelia is an eleven-year-old girl who is living in wartime Spain and, after her father dies, is sent to live with her new stepfather, the powerful fascist officer Captain Vidal. She feels trapped by reality until her imagination takes her into an enchanted labyrinth where she meets a faun who agrees to help her.
Ofelia is determined to save her mother and her unborn brother from Vidal's wicked clutches and was a friend of Mercedes . She is transported into the magical world where she takes on a giant toad and escapes from a child-eating monster, the Pale Man.
When Ofelia returns, she faces Captain Vidal's vicious abuse and tries to poison him. Vidal gives chase, and Ofelia unselfishly gives up her life for her brother when the evil man shoots her. It is stated by Guillermo del Toro, that after she dies she is reborn as the princess of the underworld after completing her third task, which was a sacrifice of an innocent (which was herself).
