The following characters are featured in the Disney Junior animated series, Sofia the First.

Main cast[edit]

  • Princess Sofia (voiced by Ariel Winter[1]) – A young village girl who became a princess after her mother married King Roland II. She is upbeat, outgoing, adventurous, and loves the outdoors. Ever since she was brought into the royal family, she became the bearer of the mystical Amulet of Avalor, which gave her the ability to understand animal speech (they can understand her without the amulet,[2] with the amulet itself having been the refuge for another princess for 41 years, whom Sofia would eventually release). It can also summon Disney Princesses to help her, with Sofia eventually helping other princesses in need herself as well, in a similar manner. As of Season 4, after defeating the evil Prisma, Sofia has become the first non-magical being to join the ranks of the Protectors, and since then, joined by a Fairy Protector named Chrysta, Sofia is training to become a Protector, obtaining new items to help her like her Enchantlet & her Necessi-Key. But ever since Prisma escaped, and allied herself with Twitch (who stole Sofia's Necessi-Key to help Prisma escape) and, later on, Wormwood (Cedric's former friend & pet raven), it is now up to Sofia (with help from Chrysta, & Sofia's friends & family on occasions) to prevent Prisma from becoming powerful by stopping her, Twitch, & Wormwood from obtaining all of the "Wicked Nine", a group of evil objects that have belonged to 9 major Disney Villains (The Evil Queen Grimhilde from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Lady Tremaine from Cinderella, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Jafar from Aladdin, Shan Yu from Mulan, Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog, Mother Gothel from Tangled, and Mor'du from Brave). At the end of "Forever Royal", Sofia is finally promoted into full-fleged Protector of the Ever Realm.
  • Princess Amber (voiced by Darcy Rose Byrnes) – Sofia's stepsister, James' twin[3] sister, King Roland's daughter and Queen Miranda's stepdaughter. She is stoic, vain, spoiled, sassy, jealous, impatient, but nonetheless, a good friend. Honoring her title as princess, she devotes her life to a huge liking of jewelry and keeping everything clean and pristine. She becomes queen of the Island of the Rompkins in The Mystic Isles, and she is named the heir to the throne of Enchancia in "A Royal Wedding."
  • Prince James (voiced by Zach Callison, Tyler Merna and Nicolas Cantu) – Sofia's stepbrother, Amber's twin who has the same color hair as Amber's [3] brother, Roland's son and Miranda's stepson. Unlike Amber, he is adventurous and outgoing. He plans to become a knight when he grows up.
  • Queen Miranda (voiced by Sara Ramirez) – Born Miranda Cordova,[4] she is Sofia's mother,[1] Roland's current wife, and the stepmother of the royal twins. She was a cobbler until she married King Roland.
  • King Roland II (voiced by Travis Willingham) – Born Roland Winslow,[5] he is Sofia's stepfather, Miranda's husband, the father of the royal twins, and the ruler of Enchancia.
  • Cedric (voiced by Jess Harnell) – The royal sorcerer of Enchancia with a mid-Atlantic accent. He is described as a great and impressive sorcerer by the Good Fairies.[6] He is the son of the previous royal sorcerer Goodwyn the Great who is now retired with Cedric's mother Winnifred the Wise.[7] Cedric has also referred to having a sister who stole from him, who he has never forgiven.[8] His sister's name is later revealed to be Cordelia.[9] In his earlier appearances, he secretly longs to take over the kingdom to bring glory to sorcerers everywhere and prove himself as someone of worth. Ever since Sofia wore the Amulet, he fails repeatedly at stealing it. The one time he managed to, Cedric was cursed by the amulet due to his selfish plans for its use, leaving him unable to use it to take over Enchancia, and found it to be useful only for performing beneficent acts instead to help others.[10] In the episode "Gone with the Wand," it is revealed that Cedric has a niece named Calista who adores him.[10] In "Day of the Sorcerers", Cedric's treachery was finally exposed and he even admitted that the Royal Family have not once thanked him for his magical services. King Roland gave him a second chance after he repented of his wrongdoings and helped save Sofia and the kingdom from Grimtrix where King Roland will treat him better than before.[10] After that, during Season 4, Cedric has made amends with Cordellia in "Through the Looking Back Glass", & especially King Roland "In Cedric we Trust", but in the latter episode, Wormwood, his former close friend, has betrayed Cedric in exchange for becoming the newest ally to Sofia's great enemy from the Mystic Isles, Prisma. As of that betrayal, Wormwood has left Cedric to join Prisma & Twitch to claim the "Wicked Nine", to the point where he considers Prisma his "new evil master".
  • Clover (voiced by Wayne Brady[1]) – A rabbit and friend of Sofia with help of the Amulet. He usually thinks of eating constantly.
  • Baileywick (voiced by Tim Gunn[1]) – The castle steward. Being a workaholic, he does his job well though he did fall into a few accidents. He can be overprotective of Sofia at times, but she doesn't really mind most of the time. Baileywick also has an older brother named Nigel.
  • Robin (voiced by Meghan Strange) – A robin and friend of Sofia.
  • Mia (voiced by Ashley Eckstein) – A bluebird and friend of Sofia.

Characters from other Disney properties[edit]

Recurring characters[edit]

  • Princess Cleo (voiced by Harley Graham, singing voice is provided by Jenna Lea Rosen) – One of Amber's best friends and the princess of Corinthia. Cleo is more ladylike and soft-sided than Amber and Hildegard.
  • Prince Hugo (voiced by Colin Ford in 2013, Grayson Hunter in 2014-2015) – A prince who attends Royal Prep. In his first appearance, Hugo started as a bully, making fun of Sofia for failing to ride a flying horse. He also made fun of James for helping Sofia. In the episode from the second season "The Flying Crown" after learning of the true reason for his personality, Sofia reformed Hugo and they became friends. It is revealed in "Lord of the Rink" that Hugo loves ice-dancing, but he was so afraid of his father's reaction that he kept it a secret until Sofia convinced him to trust his heart.

Wormwood and Clover are known for having a big rivalry between each other. During Season 3, Wormwood gain the ability to talk with humans, allowing Cedric to understand him. As of "In Cedric we Trust", Wormwood betrayed Cedric due to the fact that the sorcerer is no longer evil & plotting, and that Wormwood misses the "Old Cedric". Feeling betrayed by his once good friend, Cedric fights Wormwood for a crown he stole from the museum. At first, King Roland, witnessing Cedric claiming the crown, thought Cedric wanted the crown for himself, and while everyone was still & speechless, Wormwood claimed the crown back. And to make matters worse for Cedric & especially for Sofia, Wormwood delivered the crown to Sofia's great enemy from the Mystic Isles, Prisma. This is because that crown is really the Evil Queen's crown, one of the "Wicked Nine" that Prisma vows to collect to become powerful. When Sofia (who is the first to learn of Wormwood's plot to deliver the crown to Prisma & join her), along Roland & Cedric (who followed Sofia when they found she was missing while they were returning to the castle) fought Prisma to get the crown back, Prisma proved more formidable with the crown's power and attempted to send Sofia down a fissure. But Cedric managed to save Sofia & he escaped from the fissure, and he & Roland made amends with one another & became close friends once more, with Roland thanking Cedric for saving Sofia & apologizing for accusing Cedric for returning to his old evil ways. Unfortunately for Sofia, Prisma managed to escape with the crown, making the crown the first of the "Wicked Nine" to be in her possession, resulting in Sofia warning Orion, Vega, & the other Protectors that Prisma has obtained one of the "Wicked Nine". And to make matters even more worse for Sofia & Cedric, Wormwood has joined Prisma & Twitch as a result of a deal: Prisma accepts Wormwood as her ally as he gave her the crown as he promised (despite Twitch, following Prisma's orders to spy on Wormwood, secretly trying to interfere with Wormwood's plans & ended up failing).

Like Cedric, she initially covets Sofia's amulet and seeks to obtain it, but is thwarted by Sofia. In "The Secret Library: Olaf and the Tale of Miss Nettle," Miss Nettle's ability at "enchanted horticulture" is revealed to have been the origin for breeding Freezenberg's "snowdrop" royal flower — Miss Nettle never received proper recognition for the "snowdrop" flower, which could be a source for some of her antagonism.

  • Prisma (voiced by Megan Hilty) – Prisma is an evil Crystal Master from the Mystic Isles and sister to Azurine. Ever since Sofia & Amber visited the Mystic Isles, she tried to trick them into thinking that it is her sister who is the evil Crystal Master. Sofia had second thoghts, but Amber, being tricked by Prisma into think that she will give Amber a magical amulet like Sofia, gave her Terra Crystal Staff to Prisma. That's when Prisma's true colors are revealed that she is the evil Crystal Master, not Azurine. Prisma revealed that she has been jealous of Azurine, but now that she has her powers back, she imprisons her sister and plots to cover all of the Mystic Isles in crystals, draining all of the Mystic Isles' residents of their magic in the process. Fortunately, Amber has decided to make amends of her mistake, and working together with Sofia, Harumph, & Skye, she used Shattering Stone to return all of the Mystic Isles & its residents back to normal, free Azurine, strip Prisma of her powers. Foiled by Sofia & Amber, Prisma tries to run away after Azurine sadly states that she must be turned in to the Protectors, but Sofia, with Skye's help, caught up with Prisma & rescued her from falling off a cliff. But just seconds afterwards, the Protectors have arrived in time to arrest Prisma for her crimes against the Mystic Isles. Since then, she has become Sofia's newest enemy & the main antagonist of Season 4. Now angry at Sofia & blaming her for foiling her plans, Prisma has now escaped with the help of her new ally, Twitch (thanks to him giving her Sofia's Necessi-Key). Since then, Prisma vowed revenge on Sofia, and together with Twitch and, later on, Wormwood (Cedric's former close friend & pet raven), Prisma strives to once again become powerful by obtaining all of the "Wicked Nine", the group of evil objects that have belonged to 9 major Disney Villains. In the series finale, "Forever Royal", Prisma succeeded in her plan, only to have more than what she bargained for. As a result, the spirit of the evil enchantress, Vor (freed from the Locket of Vor), possessed Prisma, transforming her into Vor in the process. But after Vor's defeat when she & Sofia were sucked into Sofia's amulet, Prisma apologizes to Sofia for everything that has happened. Prisma then worried about being imprisoned in the amulet with Sofia, but both were eventually freed thanks to a magic spell by Cedric, and the combined efforts of the Protectors and all of Sofia's friends and family. After being freed from the amulet with Sofia, Prisma has also apologized to the Protectors for everything, and calmly goes along with them & taken into custody. What happens to Prisma after that is still unknown.
  • Azurine (voiced by Rachael MacFarlane)
  • Locket of Vor (voiced by Paty Lombard) – The Locket of Vor is ominous as it is highly knowledgeable. With Twitch's help, Prisma has obtained the Locket. Upon opening the Locket, it spoke to her about the "Wicked Nine", the group of 9 Disney Villain objects. The Locket revealed to Prisma that if she obtains all of the Wicked Nine, she will become powerful. With the Locket of Vor in her possession, and allied with Twitch and, later on, Wormwood (Cedric's former close friend & pet raven), Prisma escapes (thanks to Twitch stealing Sofia's Necessi-Key & Prisma using it to break out of her prison) and seeks out to claim the "Wicked Nine" to get her revenge on Sofia. However, in the series Finale, "Forever Royal", the Locket of Vor was known to hold an even darker secret.
  • Twitch (voiced by Jeff Bennett) is a being known as a Strangeling and ally of Prisma. He has the power to transform into any animal. Twitch is known for the Diamond-Shaped markings that he has on his body. He is the reason how Prisma obtained the Locket of Vor & escaped from her prison, as Twitch stole Sofia's Necessi-Key & gave it to Prisma so she can use it to escape. Later on, as of "In Cedric we Trust", Wormwood, former friend & pet raven to Cedric, joins Prisma, and Twitch has developed a bitter jealousy with the raven ever since they first met.
  • Protectors are people of The Mystic Isles.
  • Vor (voiced by Paty Lombard) – A wicked enchantress who intends to take over the EverRealm & beyond. She appeared in the series finale, "Forever Royal", where it was revealed that Vor was once defeated by the Protectors and her spirit was imprisoned in the Locker of Vor. That is, until Prisma managed to obtain the Locket, and use the power of the Wicked Nine to become powerful. Sofia & Chrysta attempted to prevent Prisma from using that power, and they've seemed to have defeated Prisma by shattering to Locket, but it turns out that Prisma succeeded in her plans. While Orion and Vega told Sofia about Vor, no one realized that Vor's spirit was freed after the Locket was in pieces. It was then that Vor proceeded to possess Prisma, so that Prisma can transform into Vor. With Wormwood & Twitch by her side, Vor proceeded to take over Enchancia, using her powers & spells to eventually take over Enchancia. Sofia & her friends & family (who now know of her Amulet's capabilities) attempted to stop Vor, but she powerful at first. But eventually, in a last resort, Sofia used her Amulet in an attempt to trap Vor inside it (just like how Elena sent her inside it years ago until Sofia freed her). However, Vor also trapped Sofia in one of her spells, preventing Sofia from escaping as the two are both sent in the amulet. But during the confrontation, Sofia's love for her friends and family had given her the magic to vanquish Vor once and for all. Vor was vanished in a flash of light, and Prisma was returned to normal. And thanks to the combined efforts of the Protector's and all of Sofia's friends and family (with Cedric taking the lead by using a magic spell to help Sofia), Sofia and Prisma have been freed from the amulet.
