About the Disney Character: Eilonwy is plucky, cynical, and talkative. Despite her naturally strong-willed personality, she can be affectionate and emotional. Eilonwy appears to be addled once she first appears, confused and thinking her reasons for being imprisoned in the Horned King’s castle vague.
