Character information

Sorrowful is in hibernation deep inside an old well, and is awoken by Bow after he throws a stone down the well to see if there is any water present. Adora and Bow think the dragon will cause damage and run for cover. It turns out that he is not a fierce dragon and is very cowardly. Adora and Bow befriend him and take him to Castaspella to see if she can help him get some courage. Castaspella is unable to provide any magical assist. She-Ra gives him a necklace and tells him it will give him all the courage he needs. Using the help of the necklace he faces The Evil Horde, afterwards it is revealed that the necklace is not magical and that it was Sorrowful who provided the courage. In his second appearance, he faces up to Catra and shows her that he is not that weak after all, especially when his friends are in danger. In his next and final appearance, Sorrowful's cowardly nature appears to have gone, and he is shown as being a fierce opponent to The Horde, using his fire-breathing to disable Catra's defences and a docile ally to the Rebels.
