Maleficent is a sorceress of immense power and the self proclaimed Mistress of Evil. After her plan to kill Aurora was thwarted by Terra, Ventus and Aqua, Maleficent gave up evil, retired to the Forbidden Fortress and let go of all her Darkness choosing to turn away from it and wield Elemental Magic instead.
Maleficent is a sorceress of immense power and the self proclaimed Mistress of Evil, but this version of her does not seem that evil. She is content to live in seclusion with her pet raven, Diablo and has abandoned the Darkness. Because of this, she has gone back to her original appearance, free from the corruptions of Darkness.
A year ago in her world, Maleficent stole the heart of Aurora and was defeated by Terra, Aqua and Ventus. Now, having retired, Maleficent lives in seclusion in the Forbidden Fortress with only Diablo as her pet. However, in this world, Aurora's heart remains captive in Maleficent's Castle. Is the Darkness still lingering underneath the kind exterior?
Maleficent opposes the Evil Queen and hides the Dark Curse in the orb of her staff where she intends for it to remain at all costs. At this point in Maleficent's life, she doesn't intend to oppose Sora in his quest to find the Keyhole, but should she be brought near to the Darkness?
Recorrupted by the Darkness, Maleficent now continues with her plan to retrieve the Seven Princesses of Heart. This, as we have seen, ends in her defeat at Sora's hand. Now, with her plans renewed, she sets off again to retrieve the Princesses of Heart; her first target - Cinderella.
