Chatana is a sorceress who appears in the Disney Channel animated series, Elena of Avalor. She becomes the tertiary antagonist of the third season.


Chatana is ancient winged sorceress who used her powerful magic to conjure terrible monsters to torture her enemies. She almost destroyed Maru (the old Avalor) and Vallestrella until the Maruvians banished and sealed her away in a Maruvian vault. Her golden diadem, which was the source of her power, was lost for centuries.

Physical Appearance

She has dark hair, tan skin and teal eyes. She wears a green dress with blue and mint wings.

Role in the series

She is first mentioned in "Not Without My Magic", when King Verago talks about her past.

Chatana makes her first appearance in "The Last Laugh", where she's unintentionally released from prison by Elena and Mateo. She sends her Chiki Chiki, which causes uncontrollable laughter, to distract them while she and Pili go search for her diadem. Eventually, she joins forces with Ash and Esteban, with the former promising to only give her back her diadem if she accepts to help them take over Avalor. After Pili affirms both Ash and Esteban are indeed very evil, Chatana accepts Ash's offer.

In "Giant Steps", Chatana, along with her new allies Ash and Esteban, recruit Tziloco into their group, and become wanted for their crimes. With Tziloco's help, they travel to Vallestrella seeking to free Chatana's strongest monster Kizin. When they discover that Elena and her team are tracking them down, Chatana uses her magic to conjure a large swarm of baby Spider Eagles to distract them. Even after they free Kizin, however, he refuses to join them due to Chatana never having gone back for him. Though Chatana claims she could not due to being captured, Kizin goes off to free his friends. After Kizin is recaptured, Ash tells Esteban, Chatana, and Tziloco that their allies from the other side of Avalor will be far more powerful, and they depart from Vallestrella.

In the series finale "Coronation Day" Chatana and the others travel to Nueva Vista to search for the Shadow Gateway, the barrier keeping the Shadows of the Night out of the EverRealm. Chatana finds a clue that reveals the Gateway is under the ocean. A moment after reaching the Gateway, Elena's group arrives and attacks Ash's army. During the battle, Chatana blasts Mateo with her magic then conjures a giant flying jellyfish monster. Gabe, Naomi and the Jaquins fight hard against it but without success. But then, Isabel shoots the jellyfish with one of the potion-holding arrows she invented and the spell shrinks it until it's very small much to Chatana's horror. Mateo then hits Pili with a freezing spell. Furious, Chatana prepares to conjure a Dragon Shark, but before she can finish the spell, Princess Marisa slams her to the ground knocking her diadem off and Gabe grabs it up. Before she can attempt to get it back, Migs grabs her and flies her to Naomi who quickly imprisons Chatana in her Milagro. Antonia then takes her, and the frozen Pili and Tziloco to the Summer Palace and locks them up in the tower.
