Maléfique "Mal" Bertha (Bertha) est l'un des personnages principaux du film original de Disney Channel (DCOM), Descendants et dans Descendants Elle est la fille de Maléfique, le principal méchant de "La Belle au bois dormant" de


In the prequel book, "The Isle of the Lost," Mal dreams of being " on the stone floor of an ancient temple ruin" near a lake with a handsome prince; this is where and with whom she goes on a date in Auradon. Also, in the book, she witnesses (while unconscious after trying to retrieve the Dragon Eye) her mother's (Maleficent), wrath on the baby, Aurora.

Mal is a natural born leader. She is depicted as being quite mischievous, as it is shown in a Descendants trailer that she enjoys stealing and spray painting. She is also depicted as being artistic and enjoys drawing. Mal enjoys casting spells, but only as needed. She is not a bad person and wants to fight for redemption from all her mother's mistakes she made. Mal is a nice girl, once you get to know her.

Mal is also plagued by insecurities, espacially in the second movie. That's why she never told Ben she loved him before, because she thought she wasn't good enough. Those insecurities are also one of the reasons she fled to the Isle of the Lost. The other is that everyone tried to pressure her into being "A Lady of the court", because of the coming Royal Cotillion, which was also said to be like an engagement between Mal and Ben. Near the end of the movie, Mal changes into a dragon similiar to her mother's dragon form to fight Uma.


Mal is described as a beautiful young girl with dark purple hair that reaches just past her shoulders, which she usually wears down. She has bright green eyes and is medium height (1.57m) but can grow gigantic as much as she wants, usually much bigger then every building on auradon. She often wears shades of purple, with a fondness for leather and studs.

Cela a changé temporairement dans le deuxième film où elle pense qu'elle doit se teindre les cheveux en blond avec de la magie et porter des couleurs similaires à celles de Ben (bleu et jaune) en raison de son statut social. À la fin du film, la couleur de ses cheveux est redevenue plus mauve (Teintée par Drizzy, la fille de Dri zzella, sur l’ île des Perdus ). TROISIÈME DESCENDANTS
