Bloom is a fictional character and main protagonist from the animated series, Winx Club. She is the show's main character and is the official leader of the group. All the events usually tend to revolve around Bloom. Her first appearance was in Una fata a Gardenia (Rai English dub: An Unexpected Event) (4Kids version: It Feels Like Magic). Bloom is voiced by Letizia Ciampa in original Italian version, Helena Evangeliou (seasons 1-3) and Angela Galuppo (season 4) in Rai English version, and Liza Jacqueline in 4Kids version.
Bloom was born on planet Domino (Sparks on 4Kids) to King Oritel and Queen Marion. Shortly after birth, her planet was attacked by a coven of witches (the Trix's ancestors) who sought to put out the Dragon's Flame from Domino. During this battle, the entire planet was destroyed. In a final sacrificial act to ensure that the Dragon's Flame did not fall into the wrong hands, Bloom's older sister, Daphne, sent her through a portal that led to another planet, Earth.
On Earth, Bloom was found in a burning building by a firefighter named Mike, who rescued and eventually adopted her. Her adoptive mother was a florist named Vanessa. Bloom led an ordinary life, but she held a strong belief in fairies, even though she was unaware of her true origin. In her youth, she received a gift, her close pet rabbit Kiko, and met her rival, the snobbish and arrogant Mitzi.
At the beginning of season one, Bloom was 16 years old. Bloom's outfits are primarily blue, although in the official Winx Club website, her favorite color is red. Another inconsistency with color was made in season 2, where she tells the then fake Professor Avalon that her favorite color was purple. She loves reading books about spells and playing with her pet rabbit, Kiko. Her favorite subject is Potionology and her favorite spell is the Dragon's Flame. Her profile on the official site also states that her favortie food is pizza (her mother states this in the cartoon as well), that she likes romanitic comedies, and she likes pop music. She's also terrible at being tidy and can be a bit unorganized at times.
Life in Alfea: The First Year
At Alfea, a school for fairies, Bloom and Stella shared the same dormitory, meeting Flora, Musa and Tecna, their fellow roommates. They became friends and soon, on a trip to Magix, they were attacked by a trio of witches, otherwise known as the Trix, as Bloom had been spying on them.
After constant attacks, the Winx Club gained the attention of Ms. Faragonda, the headmistress of Alfea. After an attack on Musa in Magix, the girls learned that the reason for the constant fighting was that the Trix were seeking to get the power of the Dragon's Flame, and after a fight in which Bloom unleashed an enormous amount of energy, they were soon convinced that Bloom had it. Unfamiliar with the term Dragon's Flame, she sought the guidance of her headmistress and was told the history of Domino. Bloom herself would not know that she had this power until the Trix later succeeded in taking it, leading to a series of journeys for Bloom to regain what she had though she had lost. Her powers subsided when she came to believe that something special could be taken away. With her sister Daphne's guidance, she realized that nothing could take this power away from her, and it was still really within her, but she could not use it because she believed that it was gone. When she regained her confidence, she regained her power, and with her power, managed to defeat the Trix.
Life in Alfea: The Second Year
A new fairy, Layla, the princess of Andros, joins the Winx Club with her pixie Piff. After waking up from a comatose state, she reveals that the rest of the Pixies she'd tried to rescue are trapped in Shadowhaunt, the UnderRealm fortress of Lord Darkar. With limited Winx power, Layla, Bloom, and Stella must go on a special mission to rescue the other five Pixies with Sky and Brandon. During the rescue mission, Bloom bonds with Lockette, the Pixie of Portals. Afterwards, the group returns to Alfea,where the other Winx girls also bond with Pixies. Meanwhile, a new teacher named Professor Avalon has arrived at Alfea, and he takes a special interest in Bloom. Tecna and her bonded Pixie, Digit, believed that the new teacher was the "Angel of Doom", but this was revealed to be false. Near the end of Season 2, the Professeor Avalon at Alfea was revealed to be a fake, as the real Avalon had escaped from Shadowhaunt and informed Ms. Faragonda that he needed to stop a spy of Darkar's. Meanwhile, Bloom is with the fake Avalon, who reveals his true form, which turns out to be a horrible winged creature. The impostor traps Bloom in a negative-energy bubble that drains her powers, and brings her back to Shadowhaunt, where Darkar transforms her into Dark Bloom, because he needed her Dragon Fire combined with his own Shadow Fire to unite the Codex and claim the Ultimate Power of Realix. However, Sky is able to save Bloom by telling her that he loves her. Using her healing powers, Bloom is able to break the spell that turned her into Dark Bloom, and return the Ultimate Power. Lord Darkar is defeated with Charmix and Winx convergence, and the girls return to Alfea, along with Bloom.
Life in Alfea: The Third Year
Bloom learns of a new enemy named Baltor, who had been imprisoned in the Omega Dimension until the Trix freed him. Bloom learned that he was an evil wizard conjured by the Ancient Witches from the Dragon's Flame, and had ties to the past of Sparks, Bloom's home realm, as he had declared himself Bloom's sworn enemy and revealed that he was the one who destroyed her home planet. After Tecna had vanished into the Omega Portal, apparently never to be seen or heard from again (but finding her in a later episode while she and Sky are searching the Omega Dimension for their comrades) and Bloom suffered a defeat in an attempt to destroy Baltor and avenge the loss of her friend, she decided that she needed to become stronger. Ms. Faragonda sent Bloom to Pyros, the island of Dragons. Falling down a steep cliff in an attempt to save herself from a Dragon, she knocked herself out. During this period, she has a dream in which her sister Daphne advises her to" find your Dragon". After this she wakes up, and comes face to face with a small dragon called Buddy, who is lost. Overcoming many obstacles, she manages to return Buddy to his home, where he disappears while telling bloom that he is her dragon.Later on, she met the sorceress Maya. Maya taught Bloom how to focus all her energy on one target.When the Trix attacked Pyros, they mentioned Baltor's name, and hearing this, Bloom became one with the Dragon, and by believing that she would be able to defeat Baltor, earned her Enchantix. However, because she didn't sacrifice herself for anyone from her own planet, her Enchantix powers were incomplete, and due to this, she would be unable to miniaturize until the end of the first movie.
Near the end of the season, Baltor invaded Alfea to claim their strongest magic spells, and the girls had recently acquired the Water Stars from the Golden Kingdom. When Bloom was about to destroy him using the power of the Water Stars, he prevented her from doing so by telling her that Oritel and Marion were trapped within his own body. This was later revealed to be a hoax after Bloom visited the Crypt of the Ancient Witches. With the truth revealed, two episodes later (the finale of season 3), Bloom's dragon fire ventured into Baltor and and while inside Baltor she extinguished the essence of his dragon fire with her powers., thus sealing him away with the three Ancient Witches inside their crypt.
The Secret of the Lost Kingdom (first movie)
With Valtor defeated and the Magical Dimension safe for the time being, Bloom and her friends began their search for Bloom's parents, King Oritel and Queen Marion of Domino. The girls search out Hagan, the blacksmith who had forged the Sword of King Oritel, but after a small skirmish, he stated that he was unable to help Bloom in any way. While all the other fairies graduate and become guardian fairies, Bloom graduates but she does not become a guardian fairy, as her Enchantix powers are still incomplete Back on Earth, Bloom was visited by the spirit of her sister Daphne, who gave Bloom her mask so she could see Sparx as it was before Valtor and the three Ancient Witches destroyed it. Traveling to the Obsidian Dimension, Bloom found out after confronting an evil sorceress named Mandragora that Oritel's wife, Marion, was absorbed inside the sword that Hagan had fashioned to be, literally, "fit for a king" before Sparx met its apparent end (the entire planet was covered with ice and snow). However, only a pure-hearted king without a crown could release the sword and restore the entire realm back to normal. To Bloom's surprise, Sky—who had revealed himself as the new King of Eraklyon, because his father had abdicated the throne—was able to release the Sword of Oritel and save the kingdom, which in turn also restored Marion to her human form. As a result, she saved her entire home planet, and completed her Enchantix powers, becoming a Guardian fairy. At the end, Sky asks Bloom for her hand in marriage and she accepted almost instantly. However, by destroying the Obsidian Dimension, the Winx girls—who have been called the new "Company of Light"—didn't know that they freed the 3 Ancient Witches, who are seen at the end of the movie possessing their descendants, Icy, Darcy, and Stormy.
Life on Earth: The Fourth Year
At the start of the season, Ms. Faragonda invites Bloom and the other Winx girls back to Alfea to teach new students, because they have all achieved full Enchantix status. Although nervous, Bloom is also estatic to be back at Alfea, but stunned at her newfound fame after the events of the "Secret Of The Lost Kingdom" film. After finding out that they no longer had their dorm rooms, but a separate quarters, Ms. Faragonda informs the girls of a new form after Enchantix, called "Believix". Bloom and her friends then go and teach their first class (which Tecna dubs "Winxology"). After Flora is injured during a demonstration of their powers for their new students, the girls must deal with new foes, the Wizards of the Black Circle, who were looking for the last fairy on Earth and targeted Bloom, not knowing that she was originally from Sparx. Knowing that the last fairy on earth had to be found, they leave for Pixie Village, where they discover that the fairy they seek is in Bloom's hometown of Gardenia. The girls leave for Earth and rescue the last fairy, whom they learn is Roxy, and gain their Believix when she finally believes in them. The Fairy Hunters, also known as the Wizards of the Black Circle, still relentlessly attack Bloom and the other girls, who they know are protecting Roxy. Bloom takes on a mentor-like role with Roxy, as she feels that they have a lot in common because they both didn't know about the world of fairies and magic after growing up, thinking that they were normal humans. While on Earth, Bloom, with Mike's and Vanessa's help, together with Winx opens pet-shop named "Love&Pet" where they give to Gardenian people nice small magic pets (which Flora creates from toys), also selling accessories for them.

Bloom is very close to Stella as she was the one that introduced Bloom to Alfea. Bloom shares a room with Flora. At first, the bond between Bloom and Flora is weak but after some time, they became good friends. Bloom does not have much of a problem getting along with the other girls. She is kind and will give a helping hand to her friends when needed. However, it is considered that Stella and Bloom are best friends in season 1. But in season 2 and the movie, Bloom and her roommate Flora have been best friends. Stella moved to being Layla's best friend in season 2; however, in the next two seasons, they have not been as close. Stella returns as Bloom's closest friend in the start of season 3 and 4. Stella was the first fairy Bloom has ever met and, in addition, their boyfriends were born on the same planet and they are also best friends. In season 4, Bloom meets Roxy and has a very close relationship with her as the two have very similar backgrounds. Bloom was thrust into the world of fairies and discovered her true identity as princess of Domino (Sparks) and had trouble dealing with everything. Roxy who was also thrust into the world of magic like Bloom, had no idea of her fairy abilities until she met Bloom and the Winx Club. She also has a boyfriend, Sky, the Prince of Eraklyon, a realm in the show. In the fourth season Sky becomes King of Eraklyon, and becomes Bloom's fiancé at the end of Secret of the Lost Kingdom.
Bloom is the strongest and most powerful fairy for all times. The main Bloom's power is the Dragon's Flame - the greatest power and ability in the entire Magical Dimension.
She hails from the planet Domino, which was destroyed many years ago, with only her sister Daphne, who survived in spiritual form, and she left as survivors. After the attack, Domino turned into a dark, freezing place.
Bloom's most common attack is the "Fire Ball". Throughout the series she also uses the Dragon Fury (Dragon Fire Fury in the 4Kids edit), Heat Flare, Dragon Holocaust, Flame Shield, Flame Burst, Fire Armor, Dragon Inferno, Dragon Rage, Flame Strike, Flaming Circle Assault and the Fire Wall. When Blooms earns her Enchantix she also uses the Enchantix Sphere and the Enchantix Flame Burst. In season 4 when she gains her Believix her new attacks are "Flame Arrow" and "Heart of the Dragon". She also has two wind-based attacks, "Dragon Twister" (season 2) and "Dragon Wind" (season 4.) Most of her attacks could be said to be offensive attacks. She can control dragons, and has a telepathic and empathic link to them.
Bloom's attacks are based entirely around the element of fire, flame and heat, and usually consist of fiery blasts and explosions, even creating an inferno during Stella's ruined Princess Ball in Season 3. When she is angry, her power and ability is greatly strengthened and amplified enormously causing her entire body to glow like a fire and explode outwards in a strong and powerful blast. She can conjure shields and barriers of pure fire and walls of flame, most of her magical shields are either star or heart-shaped (more of the latter in her Enchantix and Believix forms). Bloom can see the intentions of non-magical beings and their true nature and can read their minds and emotions. Bloom also has the power and ability to heal people as the Dragon's Flame is also the Flame of Life. This was first shown in the episode ten of the second season when she revived Sky who died after an attack from Icy in Red Fountain. Later, she used had this power and ability to cure the pixies from the spell from Lord Darkar. She would learn about why she had healing powers just before a convergence exam, and at the end of season 2, when she used it to heal herself and her friends, bringing Riven back to life (he sacrificed himself so Musa could live).
Bloom also knows some basic spells that all fairies can use, such as telekinesis, shapeshifting, transmuting objects from one to another, and fixing minor messes. In the fourth season, Bloom can use the power of Zoomix, Speedix and Tracix, which can only be used by all fairies who have achieved Believix.
Her attacks include:
- Dragon Fury: strikes with basic Dragon Fire energy.
- Enchantix Sphere: traps someone in a magical sphere that is impenetrable to attack (used when Bloom earned her Enchantix to drive away The Trix).
- Dragon Energy: releases an insane amount of Dragon Fire energy.
