Few damsels are damselier than Linda the Night Star. In theory, Linda should be like the Blue Fairy mixed with a Crystal Gem, but instead, she is the damseliest damsel in all of damseldom. Lois Lane, Princess Peach, and Bella Swan look at Linda, and laugh at her.
The Happy Cricket
Linda spends the entire movie as an inanimate space rock that falls from the sky. She has no personality, no character arc, and no agency in the movie whatsoever. She starts off as Christopher's muse, then she falls from the sky, then Wartlord decides he wants her thinking she's a diamond (and probably having no clue that she's alive), then Christopher and pals to get her, then she and Christopher sing a forced, horribly-written love song, then there's a celebration, then Linda gets taken by Wartlord, then Christopher and pals go to Wartlord's castle to get her back, then they get her back, then they just straight-up murder Wartlord, and then Linda returns to the sky.
Linda does absolutely nothing but be a rock over the course of the film. The only reason "Night Star" exists is so there can be a tacked-on romance between her and Christopher, and she's only alive for that sequence. She never appears in human form before or after that sequence, and really, there's no reason for her to be alive at all other than because the Blue Fairy from Pinocchio was also a star.
Alternate Character Interpretation
- Linda isn't actually alive: The star is just an inanimate object that happens to glow when Christopher plays certain notes. He only thinks it's alive (and imagined the whole "Night Star" musical number) because he's just as obsessed with it as Wartlord is.
