|“||"Now they know how you've felt all your life, without a friend in the world - now, they feel nothing!" - The Evil Spirit, to Nicholas.||„|
The Evil Spirit, also known as The Spirit, is the main antagonist of the first Care Bears movie and is depicted as a sentient magic-book with the face of malevolent witch on it, she is extremely manipulative and cruel - utilizing a friendless young boy named Nicholas as a pawn by which to take over the world and get rid of everything that is good and pure and replace it with wickedness and corruption.
She feigns friendship with Nicholas, promising to teach him to be a great magician, first putting his master, the great Fettucinne into an enchanted sleep. However, during Nicholas' first show she makes all his tricks go wrong, causing the children to laugh at him. She feeds Nicholas' anger, and finally causes him to cast the spell that removes their ability to feel compassion, and then encourages him to spread the spell over the entire world as revenge. She uses Nicholas only for her own benefit and is almost completely without redeeming characteristics - making her a true villain and one of the more evil characters in the Care Bears universe, her power was also seen as great - though she was ultimately little more than a book and as such without the aid of Nicholas she was much less powerful.
In the end of the movie Nicholas breaks free of the Evil Spirit's influence and with aid from the Care Bears uses a key to lock the book again, trapping the Evil Spirit once more and sparing the world from her malignant influence.
