History

Queen Bavmorda, ruler and the main antagonist, comes down on her for bringing her a dead nurse maid instead of the child. Then when General Kael, Queen Bavmorda's army commander and villain, returns after he annihilated a kingdom, Queen Bavmorda congratulates him and then orders him to go with Sorsha to hunt the baby down and Sorsha says she doesn't need him but Queen Bavmorda orders her to do so. After they leave, Queen Bavmorda is told by her evil sorcerers that reading the signs her daughter will betray her sooner or later but she says, "I trust her loyality more than I trust yours."

Later at a tavern, she and the villains look for the girl and then discovers Madmartigan, hero and warrior, who escapes with the other heroes. Then when she and the villains seize the heroes, she asks him if he lost his skirt and he replies he still has what counts and then Sorsha says, "Not for long!" and viciously attacks him. She later talks to Madmartigan, who says he would like to break her legs and she replies, "You might find that difficult slave when I' m up here and you' re down there." When he rescues the baby a little later, he talks and hangs out with Sorsha, who keeps her distance from him and is interrupted by General Kael.

She's later captured by Madmartigan and other heroes and she talks to him about their previous encounter and when he says, "It went away." She furiously fights him and escapes. Later when her and villains attack the heroes, in Tir Asleen, she is fixing to fight him and yet decides to hug and kiss Madmartigan instead and turns over to the good side. She goes with the other heroes to Nockmaar, Queen Bavmorda's kingdom and home, and confronts the dark queen and other villains and Queen Bavmorda transforms her and other heroes into pigs using her black arts.

Then later her and other heroes attack the villains and she goes with Willow, sorcerer and main protagonist, and Fin Raziel to Queen Bavmorda's ritual chamber, where the queen insults her and says she hates her and attacks her with her dark magic but is saved by Fin Raziel's, heroine and good sorceress, white magic. Near the end, she and Madmartigan return to Tir Asleen and stay to raise the child together.
