|“||You seem to keep making the same mistake. Trusting whomever pretends to listen. Like when we told you that we would obey your commands. You may be King of Avalor, but this world is ours. And if you do not like it, we can always find another king.||„|
|~ Cahu revealing her treacherous nature to Esteban.|
Cahu is one of the four overarching antagonists (alongside Vuli, Yolo and Hetz) of the Disney Jr. show, Elena of Avalor, serving as the final antagonist of the finale episode "Coronation Day". She is a member of the Four Shades of Awesome.
She was voiced by Jenny Slate.
What Makes Her Pure Evil?
- It's implied she abused her brothers as they cowered in fear when she arrived on Esteban's boat.
- She and the other Shadows of the Night were somehow able to break out of their world and started terrorizing the EverRealm.
- When Maruvians were using the Jewel of Maru to stop the Shadows of the Night and banished them to the spirit realm, they also took all the Maruvians to the spirit world and destroyed the kingdom of Maru, which would ultimately lead to the founding of the kingdom of Avalor, that makes her and her brothers responsible for all the events in the series.
- She pretends to be polite to Esteban, but she truly is not loyal to anyone, unlike her brothers who were willingly loyal to Esteban when he freed them.
- She turned various people and animals into stone.
- She turns Francisco and Luisa into stone when Esteban wanted to talk to them.
- She mocks Esteban by saying that he continues to make the same mistake by trusting those who pretend to listen.
- She threatens Esteban that she will make him a puppet of Avalor in order to allow her and her companions to bring chaos and destruction. This would also make Esteban becoming a pariah for real.
- She torturously kills thousands of innocent people by slowly turning and petrifying them into stone for her own sadistic pleasure.
- She disarmed Elena from her scepter and attempts to kill Elena by turning her to stone in a much slower way than everyone else so that Elena can feel every bit of her own demise, though Esteban takes the strike instead.
- She doesn't appear to truly care about her brothers as when Hetz, Vuli and Yolo die, she doesn't mourn their deaths.
- While Orizaba is more heinous than her seeing as she attempted omnicide, Orizaba also has redeeming qualities and is affably evil, unlike her.
- Unlike most of Elena's enemies, who had comedic moments, redeeming qualities, or standard evil, Cahu has none and is taken completely seriously, even more than Shuriki and Ash Delgado.
- Despite her low screen time, she has enough impact to be pure evil.
- She is the only Pure Evil in Elena of Avalor and one of the only Pure Evils to appear in a preschool program.
- She is also the second Disney Pure Evil to appear in a preschool program after Scar in The Lion Guard (though he first appears in The Lion King, where he was already pure evil in that appearance).
- Cahu is one of only five Disney Pure Evils to be female, alongside Princess Mombi, Queen Ingrith, Jadis, and Zhan Tiri.
