Bloom, a red-haired, 16-year-old girl from Earth, discovers she has magical abilities when she saves Stella, a 17-year-old fairy princess from Solaria. Stella persuades Bloom to enroll in Alfea, a school for fairies in the Magical Dimension. There, she meets roommate Flora and apartment mates Tecna and Musa; together they form the "Winx Club". They encounter and befriend the boys from the Red Fountain school of Specialists, named: Sky, Brandon, Timmy and Riven. They also encounter enemies, mainly the Trix, a trio made up of witches Icy, Darcy, and Stormy. Icy has ice power, Stormy has weather power and Darcy has the power of hypnotism and other dark arts. For the Winx on the other hand: Tecna has the power of technology, Musa the power of music, Flora has the power of nature, Stella the power of the sun and moon, and Bloom has the power of the great Dragon Flame. Together, the Winx go through many adventures and discover many secrets about Bloom's childhood past and obscure origins, while fighting their enemies and studying at Alfea College for Fairies as freshmen students.
