If you follow me on Tumblr, then you know of my obsession with Descendants. But what you may not know, is that my favorite character is Evie. Evie is a very complex character, maybe not on the surface, but if you look deep enough, she certainly is the deepest character in the series.
Evie is the true protagonist for many reasons, but I’ll only go in depth for a few.
- Evie found a calling in helping the VKs. She decided that helping the kids that grew up like her was a huge impact, and she even helped (King) Ben and became his Advisor for what I like to call the Isle Relations. She has such a big heart, and when she decided to help those who deserve a second chance, that solidified my love for her.
- She has a big heart. Along with helping the VKs, she has always been outside of the box. While her mother wanted her to only focus on her beauty, Evie focused more on school. Yes, while she may have still focused on makeup, she still focused on other things. And instead of getting a prince as a boyfriend, she ended up having Doug, who isn’t really rich, but he is most certainly a prince at heart.
- She is a bad*ss. I mean, have you seen her sword fight? She is the essence of girl power. She can look kickbutt and elegant at the same time without even trying.
- She’s played by Sofia Carson. ‘Nuff said.
These are just some of the reasons as to why I think Evie is the true main. Until next time!
