That dragon's egg means everything to me! What it contains can give me more power than Kaldorf ever dreamed of! I'll at last have my revenge on him and that infernal hamlet.
~ Drizelda vowing revenge on Kaldorf for her exile.

Drizelda

Drizelda is the main antagonist of Tom and Jerry: The Lost Dragon

She was voiced by Vicki Lewis in her first villainous role.

Biography

At the start of the story, Drizelda is banished from her village by the mighty wizard Kaldorf for using dark magic and for her ill treatment of her niece, Athena, who chooses to stay with Kaldorf. Drizelda attempts to cast a spell on Athena and Kaldorf, but her dark magic backfires and she's catapulted to a volcano, but not before vowing revenge.

Years later, Drizelda sends her hench-cats, Tip, Pan, and Alley to steal a dragon's egg she craves. Unfortunately, they are chased away by a dragon and the egg tumbles into a river. After they spread the news, Drizelda is furious that they lost the egg. She turns Tin, Pan, and Alley into bat creatures and sends them to find it. Tin, Pan, and Alley attempt to capture the baby dragon, Puffy, who has hatched from the egg, but Tom and Jerry save the hatchling.

After Athena ventures into town to find the trio, Drizelda arrives. Drizelda reveals that there is a dragon in the village and that Puffy's mother is looking for him. Using dark magic, she kidnaps Puffy and takes him to her lair. Drizelda attempts to force Puffy to give her his fire to cultivate the power in her magic necklace. Puffy refuses, so her cats use pepper to make him sneeze. Drizelda absorbs the fire, turning Puffy to stone and transforming into a dragon. Athena, Tom and Jerry arrive at Drizelda's lair and are attacked by Puffy's mother, whom they convince that they were looking after him. Meanwhile, Drizelda launches an attack on the village wins a fight against Kaldorf. 

Before Drizelda can devour Kaldorf, Puffy's mother, Athena, Tom and Jerry fly to the rescue. Drizelda and the mother dragon engage in a huge fight, but Drizelda uses her magic necklace to turn the latter into a statue. Kaldorf tells Athena and her friends that the necklace, the source of Drizelda's power, is to be destroyed. Tom, Jerry, and Athena's animals overpower Drizelda before Athena, with Tom and Jerry's help, destroy the necklace with a mallet. While Puffy and his mother are freed from Drizelda's spell, Drizelda's magic backfires, turning her into a statue.

In a post-credits scene, a bird flies onto Drizelda and she shoos it away with a puff of smoke.

Trivia

  • Drizelda is the third female main antagonist in a Tom and Jerry film, after Aunt Pristine Figg and the Wicked Witch of the West.
  • She serves as a direct contrast to Athena. Both are outcasts, but while Athena cares for animals and doesn't let her ill treatment by the townspeople get to her, Drizelda, on the other hand, is not above kidnapping, abusing her henchmen and Puffy, and even attempting murder to achieve her goals.
