Octavia was a member of the Horde and holds the rank of Force Captain.
Octavia has green cyan skin, two arms, two legs, four limbs and a very muscular build. She wears an orange and brown uniform with brown below-the-knee boots. Octavia has her left eye bandaged, since it was scratched out by young Catra.
She seems to be short-tempered and is quick to anger, especially when being insulted or provoked by others.
She was already a Horde officer when Catra and Adora were being trained as young girls. On at least one occasion, Catra scratched Octavia's right eye and called her a "dumb face". After being hurt and scared by Octavia, Adora comforted her. The blonde also called Octavia a "dumb face", which greatly angered her and caused her to chase after the pair.
She was seen in the alternate reality.
She piloted the Horde ship that took custody of Swift Wind, Bow and Sea Hawk after they were captured by pirates. She and her crew were defeated when Adora, Glimmer and Mermista arrived to save the three boys.
