It takes more than a wand to make you a sorceress.
~ Shuriki to Elena
Shuriki is a character who is an evil power-hungry sorceress who is the main antagonist in Elena of Avalor. She is the former ruler of Avalor, and gained her power back in Elena of Avalor: Realm of the Jaquins.


Sofia the First

Forty-one years before the special, Elena and the Secret of Avalor, this power-hungry sorceress attacked the Kingdom of Avalor and killed the King and Queen. Avalor's Royal Sorcerer, Alakazar, cast a spell to protect the remaining members of the Royal Family of Avalor by placing them inside an Enchanted Painting. To buy Alakazar time, Crown Princess Elena of Avalor faced Shuriki on her own. Shuriki tried to strike Elena down but the Amulet of Avalor saved her life at the cost of her freedom by pulling her into it. Alakazar found the Amulet and sprited it away and Avalor fell to Shuriki, who would rule Avalor for the next forty-one years until she was defeated by Elena, who was freed from the Amulet of Avalor by Princess Sofia of Enchancia.

Elena of Avalor

Shuriki appears in the prologue of "First Day of Rule". She and her rule of Avalor are referenced by many of the characters in the series.

During the last scene of Realm of the Jaquins, Shuriki reprises her role and gains magic from the red crystal Victor Delgado obtained from Vallaestrella while Elena and the others were busy with Marimonda. She seeks revenge and tries to conquer Avalor again.

Season 2 sees her working with Victor and Carla to attempt to forge a new wand for herself to help in taking over Avalor again, with her focus being on taking out Elena and the Guardians of Avalor, the Jaquins, as top priority so they can't stop her again.

She grows impatient with the small gems the Delgados bring her as none of them have the power to create a new wand for her. She sends them to Tepet Maru to retrieve the powerful Jewel of Maru for her, but thanks to Elena, they fail to retrieve it, and Elena seals it away permanently.

They then try to head for the neighboring kingdom of Paraíso to retrieve a jewel from there for Shuriki to make her new wand from, but find the border reinforced by additional guards thanks to the new peace treaty and alliance between Elena and Paraíso's princess, and the Delgados wanted fugitives by Avalor.

Trapped within Avalor's borders now, Shuriki decides to target the jewel at the center of Queen Lucia's Carnaval Tiara as the one to forge a new wand from, especially considering that was what Victor and Carla were primarily after before being stopped by Elena and her family and being exiled again. Knowing the Avalor Royal Treasury would be heavily guarded with booby traps for security purposes, Shuriki has Carla disguise herself with a potion as a distant cousin of Armando named "Rita Perez" to try and get close to Elena so Carla can sneak into the Treasury and steal the tiara. Though Carla is prevented from doing so because of the celebration being held regarding the Jaquins, she does manage to get in good graces with Elena and Naomi during this time, while being warned by her father Victor that the potion won't last forever, so she has to make her move at some point before the potion expires and her cover is blown.


  • Her name is a reference to the kanji in the phrase "Power to end everything" (すべてをわる?), hence her goal to kill the King and Queen of Avalor.
  • Shuriki also means in Japanese "mighty witch", once formed and in imperative form.
