Welcome to another feature of our "That Darn Question". Today's question is: "Was Elyon Brown from W.I.T.C.H. originally supposed to be evil?" To answer that, let's take a quick look at the history of W.I.T.C.H.

W.I.T.C.H. started off as a comic series about five girls with superhero and magical powers over the elements fighting against the forces of evil. The series was created by Elisbetta Gnone, Baraba Canepa and her husband, Alessandro Barbucci. In the very first issue of W.I.T.C.H. "Halloween", the five girls discovered that they are Guardians of the Veil and that their best friend, Elyon Brown has betrayed them for the dark side. The first few issues of W.I.T.C.H. was...very dark and mature. Elyon would constantly pop up here and there mysteriously before her friends' eyes, luring them into traps in order to get them killed. Yeah, Elyon's a bitch, isn't she?

All of Elyon's plots to get rid of her friends includes:

:bulletred: 1.) luring them into the basement of her old house so that Vathek can kill them
:bulletorange: 2.) kidnapping Taranee and using psychology to torture Taranee, making her think that Will and the others have replaced her with an Astral Drop
:bulletyellow: 3.) Trapping them inside a painting with said painting's creator, leaving them stranded with no magic
:bulletgreen: 4.) Disguising herself as Will's swim trainer and get her to distrust her friends and family; and trying to kill Will with a water serpent
:bulletblue: 5.) Luring the Guardians into a labyrinth of the bookstore so that they'll run into desperate Meridian people and be slaughtered
:bulletpurple: 6.) She also threw her adopted parents in prison.

My god, Elyon Brown is actually a sly, wicked, deceiving, little bitch from issue #01 through #06.

However, it was said that the three creators of W.I.T.C.H. lost control of their own story and characters a little after issue #02. The three creators soon would lose the rights to the series because Disney Company Italia is too powerful. The wife and husband team left first while Elisabetta Gnone stayed with the creative and writers a little bit longer.

Upon closer inspection, readers can tell that starting on issue #07, the story changed and it became lighter. At the end of issue #06, after Elyon lured her friends into the bookstore, Cedric was actually caught by the rebels and was nearly executed until Will stepped in to save his life. Rather than being grateful to her, Cedric decided to attack Will. Despite leaving for Meridian with him, Elyon soon began to doubt Cedric's words and her loyalty to him and her brother wavered.

Issue #07 is actually the turning point in the style of writing, the drawings, and the turning point of the entire plot of the first series. Elyon began to question her role in her new world and soon enough, her eyes are opened when she saw all the misery and despair which Phobos inflicted on his people. In the same issue, Cornelia was the one who still believed Elyon to be her best friend, while the others still didn't forgive Elyon for trying to murder them constantly in the past.

After several more issues, from #8 to #11, Will and the others soon realized that Elyon still has goodness inside her and she's in danger. They became more convinced when Elyon used her growing power for good rather than evil. Soon, they realized that Phobos is after Elyon's power and fought to stand by her. In the end, Elyon is crowned, she broke free from her shackles, and became the Light of Meridian and the new Queen of Metamoor.

So in essence, it's most likely true that Elyon was originally supposed to be evil through and through. But since Disney Italia didn't want that, she became a reformed character who learns from her mistake...which resulted her in becoming queen. Huh...I wonder if My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic got their idea for Princess Luna through W.I.T.C.H.

Had the creators of W.I.T.C.H. retained their control, the story and the original outcome would have been a hell lot different and a hell lot darker than the one we know today. In the animated series, Elyon isn't portrayed as a child who has betrayed her friends for the dark side, rather she was tricked and brainwashed into thinking that the Guardians are her enemies. Either way, I like both version in the original comics and the animated series. In the end, they both shows Elyon becoming queen and kicking her brother's butt. Despite my preferred in Elyon turning from evil to good, I must admit that I would be very curious to know how the story would have ended had the creators decided to retain Elyon's evilness. But does doing so means that W.I.T.C.H. would have just ended at issue #12? We'll never know.

Elyon didn't disappear altogether once the first saga was done. As the new Queen of Metamoor residing in the city of Meridian, Elyon does make a few cameos from time to time in later issues. She would eventually have her own Special issue about trying to get used to being queen and is featured in both the Caleb and Cornelia and the Caleb and Elyon special issues. The latter reveals that Elyon and Caleb became a couple.

In the cannon line, Elyon returns to play a major role is the 4th saga when Phobos and Cedric made their evil comebacks. Before the comic series discontinued, Elyon returned in the last few issues as a part of a voting poll on the W.I.T.C.H. Italian website. (That poll was rigged, by the way...don't ask...)

Hello to everyone!
If any of you is looking for a second home for his/her stories of WITCH and their universe or for another place to share art with others, you can check out Coles Website here:

He has offered to give parts of his website to other artists and writers, to create a place where everyone can share and discuss stories and art works. It's really great to get a little more feedback and I personally like to post stories there a little better than here on DA. There's also a Forum where just anything can be posted.

If anyone's interested feel free to contact me or Cole directly.

Hope to see you there! :D
