She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’s solid simply got a touch larger.
In season four, “Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story“ writer Jacob Tobia will play a non-binary shape-shifting mercenary named Double Trouble.
According to the official character description, Double Trouble is a non-binary shape-shifting mercenary from the Crimson Waste, who joins forces with Catra and the Horde.
“Able to as if by magic transform themselves into a person they see, Double Trouble has the soul of a thespian, spending hours in ‘character study’ trying to perfectly mimic their target character, and always searching for feedback on their ‘performance’ simply do not ever provide them with a negative critique.”
In addition to their bestselling memoir, Tobia has had their writing featured on MSNBC, the New York Times, Time, the Guardian and Teen Vogue, among others. A gender-nonconforming writer, producer and performer, Tobia is a Point Foundation Scholar and Truman Scholar as well as a member of the Forbes “30 Under 30” and the “OUT 100.”
“She-Ra and therefore the Princesses of Power” Season four begins with the individual rises of Queen Glimmer as leader of the Rebellion and Catra as co-leader of the Horde. Now, in its fourth season, which premiered Tuesday, “She-Ra” has introduced its first nonbinary character, a shapeshifter named Double Trouble.
“Double Trouble is just a mischievous little chaotic being that causes all kinds of trouble for basically everybody,” said Jacob Tobia, the nonbinary performer, and writer who voices the character.
“They’re fearless and deeply in touch with their own power and aren’t scared of pretty much anyone in Etheria.”
As a mercenary, “Double Trouble is sort of figuring out how they want to play this whole rivalry” between the Horde and the Princess Alliance when you first meet them, added Tobia. “By the end [of the season], they’ve made some choices.”
