|“||At this very moment, my minions are in all seven regions of Fairytopia. Little by little the weakness will set in everywhere. Imagine, a whole land of fairies weak, flightless and frightened. And who will be the only one who can help them? Not their beloved Enchantress and fairy Guardians. Oh, no... The only one to answer their desperate cries for help, the only one with an antidote to their sickness will be me.||„|
|“||As a matter of fact, yes. I was about to explain how, once I kidnap all the guardians, I'll suck the power from the necklaces the Enchantress gave you and transfer those powers to me. I will only ask once. Where is your necklace? Where is it?!||„|
|~ Laverna to Azura.|
|“||I hate rainbows! NO!!!||„|
|~ Laverna's last words.|
Laverna is the main antagonist of the Barbie: Fairytopia trilogy. She is a fairy and the younger sister of Enchantress who tried to taking over Fairytopia.
She was voiced by Kathleen Barr, who also voiced Queen Chrysalis in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Lydia in Barbie & the Diamond Castle, Eris in Barbie in A Mermaid Tale series, and Gwyllion in Barbie: Mariposa series. In Japanese dub of the movie, she was voiced by Mayumi Asano, who also voiced Shahdee in Prince of Persia series.
Not very much is known about Laverna's past, or how she came to be a threat to Fairytopia. Shortly before the events of the first film, Laverna swore to her sister, the Enchantress, that she wanted to make peace.
The Enchantress believed her and invited her to drink buttercup-milk with her. What she didn't know was that Laverna slipped some of her poisonous formula in her drink, causing her to immediately fall into an endless sleep. With her sister unable to stop her, Laverna started to kidnap the guardians of Fairytopia to suck the magical power from their necklaces and transfer those powers to herself.
The first guardian to be kidnapped was Topaz, the yellow guardian and ruler over the Magic Meadow. It is also known that some fairies were initially unaware of Laverna's existence, believing her to be a myth.
Laverna is first shown in her castle, flying around and scaring Topaz before offering her buttercup-milk and ambrosia. At first, she refused to take it, but changed her mind upon realizing that she would be stuck there for a while. Laverna told her that she'd kidnap the other guardians soon so Topaz will not be lonely for a long time. Topaz states that Laverna will never take over Fairytopia because all the fairies were loyal to the Enchantress. Laverna called her minions to show Topaz her formula. Laverna then reveals her plan; that she had given her minions orders to carry it over Fairytopia to spread the poison everywhere. Once released into the air, the fairies who breath the poison will become so weak that they lose the power to fly. And the only one who can help them will not be their beloved Enchantress, but her instead.
And all of Fairytopia will love her for it. Laverna suggested that since she will soon be the Queen, she and Topaz should get along. The second guardian to be kidnapped was Ruby, the red guardian. He refused to eat anything Laverna served him, even though Topaz said that everything was delicious. Ruby was certain that the Enchantress would stop Laverna from doing anything evil. That's when Laverna showed her the Enchantress's comatose state and told the two guardians what she had done to the Queen to keep her out of the way. Ruby and Topaz wanted to rush to the Queen but Laverna's other spell kept them from leaving their seats. Laverna told Ruby one more time to take advantage of her hospitality because he would be living under her rule forever.
When Laverna had kidnapped Amethyst, the purple guardian, and the green guardian, she wanted to tell them her plan to take over Fairytopia. But when Ruby protested, she had to stop talking and silence him. Just then, two Fungus came in with Azura, the blue guardian. Laverna welcomed her friendly but Azura wasn't going to fall for her pretended kindness. As Laverna had five guardians to listen to her, she now told everyone how she will suck the power from the guardians' necklaces and transform those powers to herself.
Then, Laverna noticed that Azura wasn't wearing her necklace. Azura lied that she rarely wears it because blue clashes with her eyes. Laverna understood that she was not telling the truth and one of the Fungus remembered that he saw the necklace on a sleeping little wingless fairy. Azura admitted that she gave the necklace to the fairy to keep it safe. Laverna realized that a wingless fairy will not be affected by her formula and that she could ruin everything Laverna had planned.
She quickly ordered all of her minions to look for the fairy and not return without her. Laverna was able to kidnap all the seven guardians. Azura didn't think Laverna could to get the power out of the gems in their necklaces. Then, Laverna showed her a crystal and placed it in a hollow in her throne. Azura made fun of her because nothing happened.
Laverna assured her that it soon will. Suddenly, the six necklaces on the guardians began to gleam. It was a sign that the seventh necklace was near and so was the wingless fairy. Four Fungus brought Elina's friends, Dahlia, Bibble and Hue, to Laverna. Laverna showed a bit happiness to see her old friend, Dahlia, again. But she was even happier to find out that they were friends of the wingless fairy, Elina.
Elina entered a big hall and saw the seven guardians and her friends. She rushed to Dahlia to untie her arms but Laverna told her that the ropes around their hands are enchanted and that they are impossible to untie. Elina commanded Laverna to let her friends go but Laverna only agreed to do it if Elina gives her Azura's necklace. Elina refused and Laverna saw the rainbow in her eye; the sign that she was destined for great things. Laverna tried another way to convince Elina to give her the necklace.
She told Elina how alike they were. That they both had been laughed at and teased because of their differences. And that she was the one who could change it. Who could give Elina wings and be her friend who would never point out her differences. Elina was so amazed of the thought that she will have wings, that she agreed to hang the necklace around Azura's neck. As Elina walked towards Azura, Laverna pointed her spell at the crystal in her throne.
The crystal began to gleam as the six guardians' necklaces. One by one, the crystal pulled the power out of the necklaces. Elina stopped in front of Azura who begged her to wake up from her dream and do what is right for everyone. But Elina didn't hear her. She hanged the necklace around Azura's neck and the last power rushed through the air to Laverna's throne. Laverna felt the powerful magic flow into her. Azura tried her last hope and whispered to Elina: "For the friends you haven't met."
That sentence woke Elina up from her "wingdream" and she realized that she had to fight against Laverna. She pulled the necklace off Azura's neck and turned around. She remembered what Dahlia had said about the union point. That it was the only weakness of Laverna's plan.
Elina realized that the crystal was the union point and threw Azuras necklace at it. The crystal broke and the guardians' magic started twirling around in the room. The magic surrounded Laverna and raised her off the ground. Laverna disappeared and was banished to the Bogs of the Hinterlands.
Laverna's role in the film is minor compared to the previous one. After being banished to the bogs, she wanted to eat the Immunity Berry to be invulnerable to all magic, whether it be past, present or future. This would in turn allow her to defeat the Enchantress and take over her kingdom. To do this, she made her fungi kidnap Prince Nalu and force him to lead their captain, Fungus Maximus, to the berry. She is first seen towards beginning of the film, asking Maximus if he and his two other fungi have captured him.
He confirms that they have him and she reminds him of his goal, promising that he brings her the berry that he will rule Fairytopia by her side. As he compliments her, she soon ends communication with him, but not before angrily ordering him to get the berry. Later on, as Max tries to get the truth out of Nulu, she is seen communicating with Maximus, asking him if he has succeeded in getting the immunity berry. He states that he hasn't because he has fears, or as he phrases it 'concerns', about going into a dark-colored whirlpool.
In response, she pretends to act sweet before threatening to hang him upside down and feed his toes to the firebirds. She then orders him to get the immunity berry, this time even more angry, before hanging up on him. She is seen again calling Maximus as he reaches a cavern of various berries. He states that he has it, only for Laverna to ask him to show it. He plucks multiple berries, only to take the wrong one. He eventually stands in front of the berry without realizing it and after telling him that it's behind him, he finds the treasured immunity berry.
However, thanks to Elina and Nori, Nalu was rescued and the fungi were tricked into taking a True Self Berry which Nori and Elina added a red stripe onto to make it look like the Immunity Berry. Once the fungi returned from their mission, she ate the berry and was transformed into a toad, much to her horror. Upon seeing herself in toad form, she asks how this happened and the fungi report that Nori and Elina had tricked them after freeing Nulu. Since Elina foiled her plans twice, Laverna vows to take revenge on her.
