Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders

Show Summary

In the magical kingdom of Avalon, a crisis has emerged: The evil witch known as Lady Kale has sent Avalon's most powerful wizard, the great Merlin, into the unstable "Wild Magic", to make matters worse, the crown jewels of Avalon have been scattered far and wide across Avalon! The crown jewels maintain a stable link which allows magic to work in harmony with Avalon's inhabitants, without the jewels, this link has been severed and the magic is spiralling out of control, allowing the "Wild Magic" to take hold of the kingdom, creating chaos. Avalon's fate now rests with the Jewel Riders: guardians of the realm for generations, the latest incarnation of which consists of Princess Gwenevere, and her best friends Tamara, and Falen, they are empowered each by a themed crown jewel, which were grated to them when they each participated in the friendship ring ceremony, the means by which ALL Jewel Riders are chosen, the ceremony pairs a rider with an animal she has bonded the most with. With the aid of their jewels, Merlin's faithful owl Arcamedes, magically-endued talking travel trees, [capable of transporting anyone anywhere across Avalon] animal friends, and the royal guardsmen, The Pack, the Jewel riders travel across Avalon seeking the missing crown Jewels, knowing that if all are recovered, then they will be able to restore to Avalon, the balance of magic, and rescue Merlin from the dark regions of the Wild Magic. But they must also contend with Lady Kale, who intends to use the jewels to make herself the undisputed ruler of Avalon.. For the 2nd season, the premise of the show was altered slightly, Instead of crown jewels, the Jewel Riders sought out the ancient wizard jewels, with an extra adversary to deal with besides Kale: the evil witch Morgana... In other countries, the show was titled "Princess Starla and the Jewel Riders"

The Good Guys: Princess Gwenevere: Heir to the throne, and leader of the Jewel Riders, she draws her power from the Sun Stone, her special animal is a beautiful winged unicorn named Sunstar Falen: Falen is wild, athletic, strong-spirited, and lives for the moment, she draws her power from the moonstone. Tamara: Tamara cares for all living creatures, and she opens her heart to anyone regardless of appearance, or race, she senses the good in people, and animals alike through her Heart Stone, her special friends are her baby animals. [Consisting of a dragon, cat, and pony] Arcamedes: A wise, sometimes a bit cowardly, owl who gives advice to the jewel riders and can identify which crown jewel is causing mischief in Avalon, he was once always at the side of: Merlin: The Jewel riders mentor, and Avalon's most powerful wizard, good natured and kind, Merlin was mercilessly thrown into the wild magic by Kale, and cannot be freed until all the missing wizard jewels are found. The Pack: Commanded by Drake, the pack and their wolf friends all draw their power from the forest stone, as the royal guard, they are pledged to protect Avalon, AND Princess Gwenivere at all costs. Gwen and Drake have affection for one another, though they usually cover it up by bickering sometimes. Travel Trees: These magically-endowed, kind talking trees act as passages to the various continents of Avalon, the jewel riders rely on them when they must travel a great distance to locate a crown or wizard jewel.

The Bad Guys: Lady Kale: Gwen's aunt, and the Jewel rider's nemesis. Enraged that she was never chosen to be a jewel rider at Gwen's age, Kale sought revenge. When the dark stone fell into her possession, Kale saw her chance, she used the power of the dark stone to exile Merlin to the wild magic and to steal all the crown jewels, Merlin got the best of her though by scattering the crown jewels across Avalon, Kale, vowing to find the crown jewels before the jewel riders, she was aided by her.. Dweezels: cowardly, idiotic, and downright duplicitous, the dweezels are the only creatures in Avalon that are never to be trusted.
