Angry, wreckless, but also willing to admit when he's wrong, Borra is one of the leaders of the Dark Fey, a band of winged creatures exiled from the human world, who help nurse Maleficent back to health. He is an advocate for war in order to not have the Dark Fey go extinct.
He first meets Maleficent when she is rescued by Conall. He, as the warlike fairy who favors open conflict with humans is seen in the cavern trying to persuade the other fairies that they need to attack first. Otherwise, they will be driven extinct by human oppression that forced them into hiding in the first place. Later, he and the rest of fae folk find out that Maleficent is also the last descendant from the Phoenix, an ancient and powerful Dark Fey ancestor. Because Maleficent's magic is so powerful, Borra (along with Conall) believe she is instrumental in ending the conflict with humans, either by peace or war. When the fae are all fighting against Queen Ingrith’s forces, Prince Phillip stops him, but spares his life, as he doesn’t want any bloodshed. Thus, he stops the Queen when she is trying to escape after throwing off the roof of the castle.
