Show Summary

Winx Club was created by an Italian comic artist, Iginio Straffi. It is co-produced by Rainbow S.p.A. and Nickelodeon, which are both part of Viacom.

The show focuses on Bloom, who is a fairy warrior but doesn't know it yet. This all changes one day when she intervenes in a fight between two magical creatures. One of them, Stella, helps her enroll at the Alfea College for Fairies, where the two meet four other fairies and a couple boys from Red Fountain. Together, they battle evil from the Trix, the evil warlock Darkar and the vicious sorcerer Valtor. Bloom later discovers her identity as the last living member of the royal family of Domino, who was sent to Earth by her family to escape her dying planet. She now possesses the power of the Dragon Flame.

He uses a vengeful schoolgirl, Chimera, to help him in his plans to takeover Stella's realm of Solaria and Princess Diaspro to takeover Eraklyion. Which realm will he take next?

They have to find her before the Black Circle captures her.

Characters
Bloom
: Bloom thinks she's an ordinary teenager, but everything changes when she discovers the truth that she's a fairy. Now Bloom's off to the Alfea College for Fairies in the Magic Dimension, where she becomes the leader of the Winx Club. As the Fairy of the Dragon Flame, she'll use her unique power to defeat evil, like the Trix trio of witches. When she's not saving the world, Bloom likes to kick back with her friends, read and play with her pet rabbit, Kiko.

Stella: Stella is the Fairy of the Shining Sun, so it's no surprise that she draws her energy and powers directly from sunlight! With her fierce optimism, and her cheerful outlook, Stella is a ball of sunshine (when she's not making wisecracks). No wonder she's best friends with Bloom.

Flora: Flora is the Fairy of Nature so it's only natural that she gets her powers and energy from flowers, plants, grass and trees. When the team needs a magic potion whipped up they turn to Flora, who also fills the role of the Winx Club's peacemaker. She's super thoughtful and sweet and her fairy friends can count on her to be there for them.

Musa: Musa is the Fairy of Music, and her muse is the music she plays. She's a natural detective and with her super-keen sense for details, she's definitely the investigator of the Winx Club. She may look like a dainty fairy, but Musa is ace at solving mysteries and understanding the evil plots set up by the Trix.

Tecna: Tecna is the Fairy of Technology and her source of power comes from technology. As the science expert of the group, Tecna is the go-to fairy for creative devices that help her and the Winx Club get out of some sticky situations. This mega-confident fairy has no technical issues when it comes to defeating evil.

Aisha: Aisha joins the Club in the second season. As the Fairy of Waves, Aisha is not afraid of diving headfirst into any challenge. She's fearless, athletic and always looking for the next adventure. Her special power is controlling liquids.

Roxy: Roxy joins the Club in the fourth season. She is from Bloom's hometown of Gardenia, and she's one tough cookie. Although her caring nature makes her the perfect Fairy of Animals, Roxy has no problem sticking up for herself.

The Specialists (Sky, Brandon, Riven, Timmy, Helia and Nabu) attend Red Fountain, where boys learn to be heroes and all sorts of sword fighting techniques as well as the strategy behind the battles.

Sky: As the King of Eraklyon, Sky was born to take charge. That's why he makes such a great leader of the Specialists! Sky is clever, funny, brave, charming, compassionate and a loyal friend, especially to his best bud, Brandon.

Brandon: Brandon has no problem fighting off evil, because he's the strongest of the Specialists. He's Sky's right-hand-man, and the perfect partner for taking down villains, showing off his incredible sword skills.

Riven: Riven may put up a cold front, but he's always there to weather the storm when things get tough for the Specialists. He's a fierce fighter and a great swordsman, super competitive, and prone to be a bit cranky at times.

Timmy: Timmy is the brainiac of the Specialists, and he'd much rather use his wits to solve a problem than head into battle. He's a little shy, but that goes by the wayside when he's showing off his expert pilot and mechanical prowess.

Helia: Helia is the artist of the group. He first appeared in Season 2, and started out going to an art school before he gave up pacifism and transferred to Red Fountain. He fell for Flora very quickly and their personalities mesh well together.

Nabu is Aisha's boyfriend and doesn't show up untll season 3. He and Riven originally clash after a misunderstanding, but quickly become close with each other. He is not a swordsman, but is very athletic and has mystical powers of his own.

The Trix: The Trix are a group of evil witches that give magic a bad name. It's the job of the Winx Club to stop this trio of villainous sisters from destroying the Magic Dimension with their wicked ways. Icy is the chilly leader of the Trix, who will stop at nothing to destroy Bloom and rule the universe. Her followers, Darcy and Stormy, are no better. These girls are pretty powerful when it comes to casting evil spells, but they're still no match for the Winx.
