Inspired by He-Man.org’s Roast Gooble Dinner podcast, welcome to PGPoA’s latest MOTUC Bio Discussion!
Real Name: Queen Mackenzie
The beautiful and exotic friend of She-Ra, Mackenzie is queen of the Kingdom of Snows, high in the mountains of Etheria. She possesses a magic wand that whistles like the wind and lets her conjure ice spells and freezing rain against her enemies. This power has given her a reputation as the Ice Empress of Etheria, although she prefers being called Frosta by her friends. With the exception of her magic powers, she is otherwise a normal human female. She is sweet, kind and loyal to her allies. Together with She-Ra and other members of the Great Rebellion, she traveled through a Laser Gate to Eternia joining with the Renegade Masters of the Universe in the continued fight against Hordak’s tyranny! Frosta freezes her enemies with her magic spells.

I did some cursory searching on the Web and couldn’t find any significance to the name “Mackenzie” – feel free to enlighten me in the comments if you know what that’s a reference to (if anything). This does seem like another case of “Why bother with the real names?” but I suppose we’re long past that.
This bio is pretty thin – we get a brief description of her powers, some vague character development (“sweet, kind and loyal”) and a bit about how she went to Eternia with the other POP members to fight the Horde. Seems to me Frosta got a little shortchanged here – they could have given her some sort of important plot point, like she froze someone who was about to die, allowing that person to be saved by magic. Okay, that’s weak, but you get what I mean.
Anyway, for a more extensive bio of Frosta (based on her appearances on She-Ra: Princess of Power), check out her entry in the Ultimate She-Ra Guide.
