The wand could have been responsible for the creation of her castle as well. She is a skillful sailor and describes herself as brave, strong, and smart.
- The Pirate Princess appears to be slightly older than Jake and his crew, but her actual age was never revealed throughout the series. She could be chronologically much older than she appears to be and is biologically in her pre-teens or early teens, possibly due to having been turned to gold for a certain amount of time (most likely for many years, as implied in her debut episode) and did not age during that time period.
