Etheria was founded by a group of beings known only as The First Ones. Their living spirits dwell in the Cavern of Fire, located in an underground kingdom, beneath The Crystal Castle.
Etheria, the sister planet of Eternia, is ruled by Hordak, a tyrannical leader and member of the Evil Horde.
The Great Rebellion's greatest asset in their battle for freedom is She-Ra, He-Man's twin sister, who was previously a member of the Evil Horde, before defecting.
Etheria has often been linked to Eternia through the use of dimensional portals opened by The Sorceress, are descendants of Eternian immigrant colonist.
At a glance Etheria appears to be a beautiful, lush, fantastical world. But it is plagued by the tyrannical rule of the Evil Horde, which invaded the planet long ago and conquered it.
