Elemental Princesses- Tinkerbell (Air)
Air is element of change and movement; unpredictably calm one moment and flying into a tempest the next. It is the quickest of the elements, therefore, what it lacks in raw power it makes up for in offensive and defensive maneuvers. Aligned with the sanguine temperament, air characters are often cheerful, energetic, free spirits. Air spirits can often be vain; in the myth of Narcissus and Echo, Narcissus’ vanity causes both himself and Echo to wither away into a flower and simply air, respectively. Air personalities tend to be intellectual, communicative and social; however, they can also be selfish, superficial, vicious and very insensitive to other people’s emotions.
Elemental Princesses- Ariel (Water)
Water is commonly associated with the qualities of emotion and intuition. It is the element of change and adaptability; capable of taking any form. Water is pretty much always seen positively, symbolizing adaptability, youth, naiveté, inexperience, and purity of soul. In Greek mythology, Poseidon, god of the sea, has a son named Triton. Water personalities tend to be emotional, imaginative and intuitive; however, they can also be moody, jealous, and irrational.
Elemental Princesses- Esmeralda (Fire)
Fire has positive connotations like warmth, light, purification, and even rebirth. On the flipside, it’s very, very easy to exaggerate it into an antagonistic element by emphasizing its wild, destructive, and unpredictable nature. It was commonly associated with the qualities of energy, assertiveness, and passion. In one Greek myth, Prometheus stole fire from the gods to protect the otherwise helpless humans, but was punished for this charity. Fire characters have a habit of being rational, but impulsive, hotheaded, and brash.
Elemental Princesses- Belle (Earth)
Earth is commonly associated with qualities of the feminine. Various goddesses represented the Earth, seasons, crops and fertility, including Persephone and Hades. Stable and resilient, earth is the element of solidity and support. Earth characters are frequently dependable, with a trustworthy and stable character, strong, and, if female, motherly. However, they can also be stubborn and far too stuck in their ways.
