This article is about the character Audrey from Descendants. For other characters, see Audrey (disambiguation).

Now there's a devil on my shoulder where the angels used to be, and he's calling me the Queen of Mean.
―Audrey[src]

Princess Audrey is a supporting character in the Descendants franchise. She is the main antagonist in Descendants 3. She is the daughter of Aurora and Prince Phillip.

Naturally royal and extremely confident, she is the ex-girlfriend of Prince Ben and the cheerleading captain at Auradon Prep with a knack for fashion. She is also known to have been the most popular princess in school before Mal arrived. She is also best friends with Lonnie and Jane.

Background

Personality

Audrey is an extremely vain girl who tends to over-worry and believes herself to be the most beautiful girl in school. When Mal gave other girls makeovers, she was upset, not because she believed Mal was up to something but because she didn't want anyone to rival her in appearance. She is very insecure about herself.

She was immediately uncomfortable with the idea of VKs coming, often criticizing them in private and in front of them. She believes that they're evil due to their parents' villainous acts without giving them a chance. She not only acts mean to the VKs, but to a few others as well, being very demanding and demeaning such as laughing at Jane over her ugly hair and preferring to be the center of attention. She hates looking imperfect and enjoys competition and taking selfies.

Even after accepting the VKs, she remained jealous of them because they were getting all the attention she's used to getting and having trouble trying to figure them out. She even disliked it when Evie won being Q.N.L.B. instead of herself and became suspicious of them when CJ committed a series of crimes around Auradon. She's quick to frame Mal for it, even blaming her when Ben started going missing.

Despite this, she does show a strong sense of morality, as she refused to steal on the Isle of the Lost in Descendants: Wicked World and even offered to help pay for a cup that Ben broke to prove the two could be bad, worriedly asking if they were going to go to jail. In addition, she does care about her friends, even though she comes off as rude. In most cases though, she is uptight and no-nonsense, having little patience for others' antics. This is taken further when she planned the Jewel-bile for the 5 VKs as a gift to their friendship and felt guilty for being unfair to Mal out over a misunderstanding.

Despite her vanity, Audrey has a great deal of empathy lying under the surface. In Descendants 3, Audrey calls herself the “Queen of Mean” because she acts like a stereotypical Mean Girl and wants to be the Queen of Auradon in the song Queen of Mean. After being released from the hold Maleficent's staff had on her and being awakened from her enchanted sleep by Hades, she was truly horrified by what she had done while under the influence of the staff, sincerely apologizing to Mal and Ben for everything she did to them.

Physical Appearance

Audrey is a teenage girl with tanned skin and brown eyes. Audrey often wears her mother Aurora’s signature colors Pink and Blue. She always wears Pink in all her clothes. In the first Descendants film and Descendants: Wicked World, Audrey had curly brown hair. In Descendants 3, she had blonde hair with hints of pink and light blue streaks. She had completely pink hair with blue streaks while in possession of Maleficent's scepter. Audrey, being Sleeping Beauty's daughter, always wears pink and fancy dresses. Audrey's outfit was a pink dress with a blue belt and golden swirls and a golden necklace in the first fim and Wicked World, and the outfit she wears on Family Day is a pink dress shaped like a rose with blue accents and pink trees on the top. In Descendants 3, Audrey wears a pink outfit with the top being translucent with swirls, resembling her mother's iconic pink dress. Upon stealing Maleficent's scepter, Audrey's outfit becomes more corrupted, along with a black cloak and the queen's crown. Her innocent bird rings and bracelets are turned to a darker shade as well.

Appearances

Descendants

When the children of the villains come to Auradon Prep, she's the least accepting of the four, and especially suspicious of Mal due to Ben's attention to her. On a Tourney match, Audrey is completely dismayed to hear that Ben has dumped her for Mal and uses Chad Charming as a rebound, but it doesn't work.

On Family Day, Audrey's grandmother, Queen Leah, finds out that Maleficent's daughter has arrived in Auradon and is especially dismayed due to the haunting memories, with Chad adding to the scorn. The tension turns violent until Evie sprays him with a sleeping potion. Audrey then taunts Mal with Jane, prompting the girl to undo the magic she had previously performed on Jane to make her hair long and beautiful, to scare away her bullies.

On Ben's coronation, Audrey stands on the sideline and witnesses Mal convinces her friends to choose the side of good instead of evil and the defeat of her mother, Maleficent. She and Mal then bow to each other out of respect, their parents' history seemingly behind their shoulders. She then participates in the after-party, singing "Set It Off" with her friends and dancing with Jay.

Descendants: Wicked World

Audrey returns in the animated short series Descendants: Wicked World, voiced by Sarah Jeffery, who also portrayed her in the live-action film.

Unlike in the film series, she stays in Auradon following the events of Ben's coronation and is friends with Mal and Evie, even though their antics can sometimes get on her nerves. In addition, she is also jealous of how much attention the Villain Kids are getting.

Throughout the series, she has grown accustomed to being prone to magical mishaps, such as getting hit by exploding cupcakes or having her hair look awful by a failed magic makeover, and getting magically teleported to the Isle of the Lost. She also is shown to be rule-abiding to a fault, refusing to partake in thievery and vandalism when dared. Despite her initial hesitation about Freddie Facilier joining Auradon, she comes to work together with her and their other friends.

Audrey appears at the end of the first episode, covered in molten cupcakes. Later on, when Mal does a terrible portrait of her to work things out, somebody catches it on camera and posts it, leaving Ben and Mal shocked. In the third episode, Audrey gets a terrible makeover by Jane, who had first discovered that she could do magic. Later on, when various crimes had been happening around Auradon, Audrey along with the other AKs had been accusing Mal and the other VKs of plotting something, until CJ revealed herself to be the one who committed them.

Though she becomes mistrustful of Mal in the second season due to her jewel being cursed and a new VK named Zevon, who crashed the Jewel-bilee and stolen all of the VK's jewels while holding Jafar's Snake Staff, she eventually came to realize the context behind Mal's actions and openly apologizes to her, even revealing that she dedicated the Jewel-bilee and her musical number to the VKs.

Descendants 2

Audrey does not appear in the sequel, but she is mentioned several times. According to Jane, it's revealed that Audrey went on a spa vacation with Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. Later on, she calls Chad Charming to tell him that she got a flat tire at Sherwood Forest.

Descendants 3

Wearing a brand new outfit and new look, Audrey attends an announcement Ben has to make alongside Chad and her grandmother. She witnesses Ben ask Mal to be his queen, much to her dismay. Audrey is then berated by Queen Leah, who reminds her she was supposed to be Ben's queen and that her mother Aurora was able to hold on to a prince in her sleep, which makes things even harder for Audrey.

That evening, Audrey is in tears as she writes in her diary and draws a picture of herself as queen and getting old memories of her and Ben before Mal came. Wanting to become the queen of Auradon by force, she declares that she will no longer be good and steals the Queen's crown and gets beckoned by Maleficent's scepter, in addition to giving herself a more villainous look. She begins her evil deeds by confronting Mal and turning her into an old hag, and she also crashes Jane's birthday and puts everyone to sleep, recruiting Chad as her lackey. As Audrey's misdeeds end up on the news, she confronts Ben as well. He tries to appeal to her by telling her he'll forgive her if she hands over the scepter, but Audrey enraged that he doesn't realize he's the one who should be requiring forgiveness from her, transforms him into a beast.

As Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos are forced to team up with Uma, Harry Hook, and Gil, Audrey watches everything from her scepter and controls knight armor to attack them, but this fails, and so does an attempt to imprison them in Evie's cottage. Chad annoys Audrey by talking too much, resulting in her imprisoning him in a closet.

Audrey turns Ben, Evie, Jay, and Carlos into stone, which she had also done to Fairy Godmother, and captures Celia Facilier at the top of the school. She fights Mal, who has turned into her dragon form, with Maleficent's scepter, but Mal fights back with Hades' ember, which had been powered by Uma. Audrey struggles against Mal and is ultimately defeated, knocking her unconscious and waking everyone up and freeing those who had been turned into stone.

With the help of Hades, Mal's father, Audrey is awakened from her deep sleep. Freed from the corrupting influence Maleficent's scepter gave her, Audrey tearfully apologizes to Mal and Ben for everything, who apologizes to her back, while Leah apologizes to Mal. Having turned good once again, Audrey celebrates as Mal takes down the Isle's barrier and creates a bridge from it to Auradon, singing and dancing with Chad, and then Harry.

Audrey appears in the special as Mal and King Ben's wedding planner.

The Isle of the Lost: A Descendants Novel

Audrey makes her first appearance in the eighteenth chapter. Unlike her film self, Audrey appears to be more of an airhead. She was raised a bit more isolated from the world, albeit in a different sense because her mother wanted nothing more than to give Audrey a perfect childhood free of anything evil and loveless. Ben goes to visit her after his failure at the Royal Council meeting. It's during this time that Ben starts to see they don't share much in common and that this was their first real conversation.

Return to the Isle of the Lost: A Descendants Novel

Audrey appears early on the Tourney field at the Auradon Knights' practice. She mostly remains a minor character as she stays in the background, completely unaware of what was transpiring around Auradon. Mal uses magic to make her hair resemble Audrey's as she is leaving for the Isle of the Lost with her friends after receiving an anonymous message from the island.
