Here is an interesting character description by Larry DiTillio that appeared in the script for the "Into Etheria"; the first episode of the She-Ra series. Given how Catra wound up looking in the series, I for one am glad that the character described in this piece of text was altered for the series! I have nothing wrong with petite women with short cropped brown hair. Heck, I used to date one!
