Friendship is the real magic!

Skara is a recurring minor character in The Owl House. She is a student at Hexside School of Magic and Demonics under the bard track. She is one of Boscha's friends, a member of the grudgby team, the Banshees, and a member of the flyer derby team, the Emerald Entrails.

Appearance

Body

Skara is a young witch with a dark brown skin tone, eyes with gray irises, pointy ears, and hair that comes in tones of pinkish-gray and deep mauve held up in a ponytail.

Clothing

In every appearance, she wears her school uniform; the red leggings and sleeves signify her as a member of the bard track. A matching accessory holds back her hair; she also wears gold studded earrings. In "Once Upon a Swap", she wears red and white boots with bat wings allowing her to fly.

Personality

Skara is extremely excitable and very sociable, mostly seen spending her time in the presence of her Hexside schoolmates. As a member of the Banshees, and of Boscha's inner circle, Skara appears to enjoy a high station on Hexside's social ladder. She frequently joined in belittling "lesser" students, like Willow, at Boscha's behest. She also indulges in practical jokes around Bonesborough when the opportunity presents itself, and can be swayed from Boscha's side if a "cooler" candidate vied for her attention.

Despite this attitude, Skara has shown she is gentler than she appears. In the episode "Understanding Willow", Skara can easily be intimidated by stronger personalities, such as Amity, who herself wrote Skara off as "mean". Skara was also the only one who was curious about what happened to Amity and Willow's past friendship. Another example of her more sympathetic attitude appears in "Wing It Like Witches", wherein Skara, as well as the rest of the Banshees, had shown remorse over Boscha's relentless bullying of Luz after the latter had forfeited the Grudgby match. Furthermore, although the Banshees gave everything to win the final match, and despite coming out as the winners, Skara congratulated Willow and Luz for their skills during the match.

"Any Sport in a Storm" reveals a few new sides of her; she's able to understand and plan out complex strategies (especially for flyer derby), and like Willow, she's been misjudged by other people in the past. She can also be very emotional, given how her reaction to being forced to leave her family to join the Emperor's Coven was to wail at the top of her lungs, and she ended up punching Steve so hard, she dented his mask.

When she was younger, Skara was chosen by Alador and Odalia Blight to be the friend of their daughter, Amity. This was due to Skara's parents being the Blights' work friends. Amity was hesitant at first, saying that Skara was "mean", but was forced into it by her mother and father, severing ties with her old friend, Willow Park.[1]

In "I Was a Teenage Abomination", Skara walks below the banner for the Banshees in a wide shot.[2]

Skara attends the covention in "Covention" and is seen alternately investigating the Stylist Coven and Prose Coven booths, presumably as a potential applicant. It is unclear whether she decided on either of them. During Amity and Luz's duel, she watches in the rows, and when King falls into the arena pit, one of his hats lands on her head.[3]

Skara is seen posing behind Amity and Boscha on a Penstagram photo in "Hooty's Moving Hassle", also being one of the witchlings invited to Amity's Moonlight Conjuring, but she and her fellows were unsuccessful in their attempts at magic.[4]

In "Once Upon a Swap", Skara is one of the two Hexsidians trailing Boscha, seen outside with a potions track student who is grabbed by a tentacle.[5] Later, when King (in Luz's body) steals the shoes off one of the kids, he grabs a bag from Skara and then calls her and Amelia "impressionable youths".[5]

In "Something Ventured, Someone Framed", Skara runs to kick a ball on the Banshees' sports field when a griffin grabs her, causing her to exclaim, "I hate this game!"[6] Later on, Eda observes Skara receiving spellcasting instruction from Bo. Seeing the two girls cheerfully celebrating their friendship solidifies Eda's resolve to get Luz enrolled in Hexside.[6]

Skara is later seen waiting to board the bus to the Grudgby tournament at Glandus in "Escape of the Palisman".[7]

During "Sense and Insensitivity", Skara enters a writing competition at the book fair, then later forms a "people chair" with Amelia while Eileen watches. She and Amelia are the first to rush to get King's book, and after everyone runs off with a copy, Skara sneaks back and lifts the cardboard representation of King, lifting it and kissing it on the nose, before turning and running off with it.[8]

In "Understanding Willow", Skara invites Boscha and Amity to her 15th birthday party. Her invitations were made of actual butterflies, much to Boscha's dismay and partial disgust. Amity expressed concern over the insects, but unremorseful,she remarks that her dad "spared no expense" on her exclusive party. Later, she innocently asks Amity if she and Willow were once friends, and Amity reacts with hostility, recalling the traumatic end of their friendship. Skara, ignorant of this, meekly indicates that she was only curious. Amity later refuses her invitation and releases it into the wild.[1]

Sometime later, in "Enchanting Grom Fright", another student stages an elaborate invitation to Skara to be his date for Grom. She accepts enthusiastically, then quickly subdues herself to preserve her cool image. At the party, her kiss with her date is interrupted by Grom's release, but both teens are too excited by the forthcoming battle to care.[9]

  • Magic: Skara is able to use magic. Like all witches, her magic comes from a sac of magic bile attached to her heart.

Trivia

  • Her name was first revealed by Dana Terrace via Twitter,[10] but was not used in the show until "Understanding Willow".
    • Furthermore, that episode takes place on Skara's 15th birthday.
  • Although Skara is a member of the Banshees, she didn't play at all during the game in "Wing It Like Witches". This suggests that she is an alternate player.
