Princess Allura is the princess of planet Altea, daughter of King Alfor, and one of the last remaining members of the Altean race. She has been asleep within the Castle of Lions along with Coran for ten thousand years, and serves as the commander of Team Voltron, along side with Shiro, she also was responsible for granting the Defenders their title and sending them on their mission to conquer Zarkon and liberate the universe. Gentle and a friend to all, Allura wishes more than anything to finish her father's work in stopping Zarkon. As an Altean, Allura has the chameleon-like ability to be able to blend in with a species (something that made her people incredible diplomats and explorers). She has a telepathic bond to some Altean mice that were in her cryo-pod with her.
