Her Royal Highness, Princess Allura of Planet Arus, is the last member of the royal family. She becomes pilot of the Blue Lion after Sven is no longer able to do so. She has highly intelligent pet mice that can understand human speech and whom she can understand. She is also the love interest/lust object of Lotor.
Voltron: Defender of the Universe continuity
Princess Allura spent much of her childhood in the Castle of Lions. Her parents were often away on royal matters. During her childhood, she met the Space Mice. Sometime before the events of the series, her father King Alfor was killed. At the time Keith and company arrived on Planet Arus, she and Coran were the only people in the castle.
She spent at least a few months balancing training to fly Blue Lion and executing her duties as princess, believing that she had properly come into her role as the latter when she refused the last offer of replacement as the former and learned to trust more in herself rather than relying solely "on those who are gone." .
One day, Allura met Prince Lotor , who developed quite an obsessive crush on her. She would be the object of some of his attacks on Arus and a constant reminder of one primary area of princessly duty with which she still had difficulty: while Allura maintained the self-sacrificing quality of her royal birth and upbringing , she could not bring herself to become the bride of the loathsome Lotor.
Princess Allura is the niece of Queen Orla, who rules a distant kingdom on Planet Arus. Planet Pollux, and started friendly relations with the royal family there.She also visited
Voltron: The Third Dimension
B.J. Ward reprised her role as Princess Allura in the 1998/1999 computer-animated series. Now in her late 20s/early 30s, the princess has a lion's paw device allowing her to contact the lions and discovers more about their spiritual nature. She is also virtually the only protagonist to wear anything besides a close-fitting bodysuit; on rare occasion Allura actually wears a dress with a long skirt, which is far more difficult to computer animate yet also far more appropriate for a princess.
