Luba is a cat-woman and a member of the Congregation of Kandrakar. She protected the Aurameres, which are physical representations of the Guardians' powers.

Personality

In the TV series she is notably much kinder, calmer and supportive of the Guardians, showing her fierce devotion to both them and the Aurameres when they were threatened by Miranda.[1]

Plot

Comics

Luba originally came from Basiliade and trained Orube to be a warrior.[2]

Thinking that the Guardians were unfit for their roles, Luba decided to take action to prove that they weren't and combined the aural droplets. Doing this, she accidentally created a changeling, which is made of pure energy and stole four of the five Guardians' powers. The blob-like entity eventually found its way to Cornelia; after jumping out of Irma's window, it infused itself into the Guardian of earth, giving her all five powers,[3] which awoke Nerissa, due to a clause in her sentence which said she would be freed when all five powers merged.[4] Cornelia felt exceptionally powerful. So powerful in fact, she tried to bring Caleb, who was currently a flower, back to life.[3]

Luba defended her decision to the rest of the Congregation, who decided that she should be allowed to make amends in Heatherfield. She paid Cornelia a visit, threatening to take Cornelia's power of earth away forever if she did not surrender flower-Caleb to her. Cornelia was infuriated and bound Luba in vines, which Luba disintegrated with her staff and managed to transport Cornelia, the Caleb-flower, and herself to Kandrakar, then leaving the Guardian in a room to decide her fate. Cornelia still had her immense power and transformed Caleb back into a standard Murmurer, except he was seemingly mindless, not changing expression or moving at all. Cornelia cried over his motionless body, a tear landing on him, which gave him the strength to turn back into his humanoid form.[5]

Caleb and Cornelia stood trial, where the other Guardians arrived, having regained their powers. Cornelia returned to have only her earth power, and Caleb stated that he was not a Murmerer of Phobos and swore to be a loyal servant of Kandrakar. Luba was enraged, saying she would not allow Caleb to join Kandrakar, and lunged (at either Cornelia or Caleb, perhaps both). Caleb forced her back, knocking Luba to the ground, where she stated to the Oracle that this was the end of Kandrakar - and she wasn't going to stick around to save it. She then vanished on the spot, giving Caleb his first assignment to find her and bring her back unharmed.[5]

She eventually sacrificed her life to protect the Guardians from Nerissa.[6]

TV series

Luba in the TV series

In the TV series, Luba plays a tiny role. She was forced to guard Kandrakar alone after Nerissa trapped the other Council members inside a bubble-like mini-Veil.[7]

Luba helped the Guardians, telling them that Lilian was the Heart of Earth.[8]

Powers and abilities

  • Energy blasts: Luba has the power to shoot powerful whitish blue energy blasts capable of making a person unable to act or stand after they have been shot by it. When Luba used this power against Caleb in the comics, he was unable to move or speak after been hit by it.[citation needed]
  • Telekinesis: Luba used this power on the Aurameres of the W.I.T.C.H. Guardians to prove to Himerish that the Guardians were unworthy to protect Kandrakar. When she used it, the aurameres got very close to one another led to the Guardians powers clashing out creating a changeling of all the girls powers in the process.[3]
  • Glamouring: Luba used this power to glamour herself to a woman named Sandra to trick Cornelia Hale to get close to her and her family as well as Caleb in the process to proof to the Oracle that they were unworthy of protecting Kandrakar.[9]
  • Teleportation: Luba used this power to teleport out of Kandrakar when the Oracle was convinced that the Guardians were worthy.[4]
