Professor Avalon is a Paladin who teaches at Alfea. His class of Magic-philosophy is a mix of technical magic and philosophy. Before coming to Alfea, he used to teach at the prestigious Malacoy Paladion Academy.
Avalon is tall and muscular, with a fair complexion. He has gray eyes, his hair color is indigo with a dark gray streak on each side, it is long and braided, held in place by a light blue long, clothed hair tie.
He wears a white blazer over a light blue turtleneck with chained cuffs, white boot-cut dress pants and suede bucks. He accessories with a red diamond shaped necklace and a yellow diamond-shaped ring on his right-hand's ring finger.
He has large, glowing, golden-white wings. Avalon wears a short, pale yellow and gold, loose over the shoulder jacket, fitted blue long sleeves and pants. He wears long white boots and a light blue vest with two dark blue swirls. A long, gold and pale yellow cloth hangs from the middle, lower portion if his body and small cape from the back starting from the waist. His wrists have a gold and red forearm bracelet that tuck his sleeves.
His impostor had the same yellow eyes that Dark Bloom had, and scars on his face that appeared when his facade was revealed.
Avalon's pajamas are light blue and white. He wears a long sleeve, loose shirt. The shirt has a cut on the chest and his pants are white.
He wears a sliver mask that covers most of his face, except his mouth, and there are holes for his eyes.
He wears a blue cloak with a hood, that also has long sleeves.
Avalon is a smart and kind individual. He is an excellent teacher and is willing to help anyone who asks or when he sees that they are in need and is perspective. He tends to know things even when he has not seen them, for example when Bloom had dreamed of her parents, Avalon found out right away just by looking at her. His students trust him a lot and often want to impress or please him, they also find him handsome. Bloom also comes to him when she needs advice or a good listener. Though kind, he is not hesitant in giving punishment.
As Darkar's creation, a fake double of the real one, he is cunning and sneaky. He knows how to win trust and becomes terrifying when he reveals his true intentions. He is obedient and loyal to Darkar but will voice out his concerns, only for them to be shoved away.
The real Avalon though, is strong-willed and determined, as seen when he was held prisoner in Darkar's dungeons. Despite his weak state, he was able to push himself to escape and fool Darkar into believing he was still there.
Avalon had been teaching at Malacoy Academy for an unprecedented time before receiving a letter of transfer from Faragonda. She requested that he become a teacher at Alfea. He accepted and was preparing for the transfer. During this time, he was captured by Darkar and forced into a dungeon wearing a mask that nullfies his powers and then chained against a wall. Judging by his state when he finally escapes and arrives at Alfea, he was quite possibly tortured by Darkar.
Darkar then made an evil impostor bearing his appearance and lesson plans, this impostor would become Darkar's spy to search for the four pieces of the codex. Avalon would remain trapped here for several months.
A double of Professor Avalon was sent by Darkar to Alfea while the real one was being imprisoned. This impostor cast a homesickness spell on the pixies and a malicious curse on Bloom, making her evil.
When the real Professor Avalon, a paladin, escaped, he confirmed his identity by showing the letter of recommendation he had to Faragonda. She confirmed the authenticity of the letter by recognizing her own signature, acknowledging that there had been a false Avalon. The impostor lured Bloom into a trap and captured her, revealing his true form. The fake Avalon was presumably destroyed when Darkar was destroyed.
Professor Avalon is seen briefly throughout the season without making any major appearances. He is mainly seen with the Alfea staff members. Avalon appears in "The Mirror of Truth", during Faragonda's welcoming speech and then speaking to the third year fairies about Enchantix. He also appears in "Alfea Under Siege", when the enchanted witches attack Alfea.
The Shadow Phoenix
When Aisha, Stella and Bloom were at Darkar's Fortress, the Trix, with their Gloomix, nearly defeated them, but the fake Avalon rescued the Winx to gain their trust and defeated the Trix. Unlike in the original, instead of Darkar summoning an impostor, Darkar himself is the impostor.

- Avalon is a legendary island that appears in the Arthurian legend. Avalon was associated from an early date with mystical practices and people such as Morgan le Fay and is described as the place where King Arthur's sword Excalibur (Caliburnus in Latin, from Welsh Caledfwlch) was forged and later where Arthur was taken to recover from his wounds after the Battle of Camlann where he defeated his evil rebel son Mordred but was himself mortally wounded.
- The underworld of Avalon is mentioned in connection with King Arthur and Excalibur in Tomb Raider: Legend, which is where Lara's mother disappeared to and where Amanda is trying to get to. In Tomb Raider: Underworld, Avalon is revealed to be the Norse underworld Helheim, which acts as the final level and the location of the final confrontation between Lara and Natla.
- Avalon is also the name of an island in the animated show Gargoyles.
- Avalon is similar to Mad-Eye Moody from Harry Potter, as both were supposed to teach at the magic school but were held prisoner by the villain, with an impostor teaching in their place, getting close to the main character, and ultimately helping the main villain (Darkar and Voldemort) achieve their current goal (for Darkar, obtaining Alfea's Codex and capturing Bloom, for Voldemort, returning to power).
- Avalon's 4Kids voice actor also voiced Knut. For DuArt, he voices Brafilius in Season 7 and Jim from World of Winx.
