Catra is a villainess in the animated TV series She-Ra and is part of the Masters of the Universe franchise. She is the Force-Captain of Hordak's Evil Horde (a position previously held by Adora before she defected). Her trademark is a magical mask, given to her by Hordak, who in turn had stolen it from the queen of the Magicats. Catra could transform into a purple panther of formidable strength by pulling the mask over her eyes. Even in human form however, Catra had such confidence in her own skills that she was prepared to take on Huntara, one of the most ruthless warriors in the galaxy.
The deliciously comical feline voice bestowed upon the character by Melendy Britt belied Catra's extremely cruel and calculating ways. The only characters that Catra evinced any tenderness towards were her pet lion Clawdeen and the handsome pirate Sea Hawk, although the latter evoked Catra's wrath when he paired with Adora. The vain feline Force Captain had no regard or concern for even her fellow members of the Evil Horde, although Entrapta seemed to come as close to being a friend of Catra's as anyone could get.
