Queen Arienda is a minor recurring character in the second season of Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders. She is the Queen of the elusive Faery Wraiths, a magical race dwelling in the Forests of Arden, and a friend of Prince Ian.

Appearances Edit

Lancelot and the Fairy Circle

Lancelot and the Fairy Circle by Florence Harrison (1912)

Queen Arienda is introduced in the episode "Prince of the Forest", where the evil sorceress Lady Kale has her trapped in a Dark Stone bubble to lure her wolf-man protector Ian into a trap set up by the Outlaws. Later, the freed Arienda magically ensures that once a year Ian may again turn human and share the moment with his love Princess Gwenevere.

In "Lady of the Lake" ("Spirit of Avalon"), Arienda and the Faery Wraiths arrive to rally up the broken Gwen and Sunstar and guide her so she can receive the Staff of Avalon and defeat Kale. Later in "The Last Dance" ("The One Jewel"), Arienda also helps Gwen break Morgana's spell and revive Ian with the power of love, restoring the destroyed Circle of the Wraiths and helping to defeat Morgana too.

Legacy Edit

Kara meets the wraiths

In Avalon: Web of Magic, Fairy Wraiths are kind creatures that are the guardians of the series' version of Avalon. They are of human size and have green hair there.

In the Fairy Realms world in Avalon, the term “fairy ring” comes from a superstition that mushrooms growing in a circle represent the path of dancing fairies. It has been used to describe a place where fairies come to sing and dance; the Fairy Ring is also an outdoor amphitheater grown from trees and plants in the Fairy Kingdom, serving as a meeting place.
