Teela (spelled Tee-La in the early minicomics) is a character from the Masters of the Universe franchise. She is the Captain of the Royal Guard at the palace of Eternos and thus responsible for training and protecting Prince Adam of Eternia. While Adam is He-Man, Teela often assists him in his battles, but she is unaware of his alternate identity. Teela is one of the first characters developed for Masters of the Universe, although her figure was released in the second half of the first wave. Writer Donald F. Glut named her after Gunga Ram’s elephant from the Andy’s Gang television show.
Teela is presented in the earliest media as a heroic “warrior goddess,” a capable female fighter imbued with the spirits of great warriors long deceased. She roams the deserted landscapes of Eternia atop a unicorn. As typically by 1980’s cartoon standards, she was clad in a sleeveless white leotard with gold trim (suggesting a one-piece bathing suit); said costume was carried over from the mini-comic books.
