White Circle - Episode 417 (1)
The White Circle, or the Fairy Circle, is a magical item introduced in Season 4.

Overview

The White Circle is a powerful item that acts as a key to Tir Nan Og, the realm of the Earth Fairies. It can also be used as a means of contact between fairies and in combat due to its magic-enhancing and defensive abilities. The White Circle can also take its user to wherever they wish. The White Circle is magically opposed to the Black Circle.

The White Circle also allowed Earth Fairies imprisoned in Tir Nan Og to possess free Earth Fairies who were close to it.

Appearance

The White Circle is a white ring with four white oval shapes along it. Magic can be channeled through the White Circle. Depending on the user, it will glow or pulsate blue, which has been described as "the Earth's flames" or pink, which will deepen to a red-purple when an attack is being formed. In some cases, the magic glow surrounding the circle can be focused into a large, body-sized sphere that will surround the person holding it to either restrain or empower them. Streaks of orange lightning can move about the surface of the sphere. Magic can manifest itself in the form of a red-purple ball inside the middle of the circle and can be shot out of the center. The glow of the circle will intensify during this process and may even cause rays of the magic to shoot from around the circle. The White Circle can be shrunk to ring-size via a magic spell.

Pre-Series

The White Circles acted as the links between Tir Nan Og and the Magic Dimension. Over time, the circles were destroyed by the Wizards of the Black Circle, leaving only one left.

Roxy Seventh Fairy p16

A flashback of Roxy finding and being possessed through the White Circle.

The White Circle only appears during a flashback as the Winx and Roxy inform the Fortress of Light Council of the events that took place on Earth.

With the transmitter on her head, Stella explains that in addition to the ferocity of the Wizards of the Black Circle, Roxy seemed to have been receiving guidance from a mysterious figure that led her in a very precise path that would later lead her to a secluded farmhouse located in the mountains just outside of Gardenia. There, Roxy found the White Circle: the key to the Earth Fairies' freedom, however, grabbing hold of the White Circle allowed for Nebula, a fearsome Warrior Fairy, to take control of Roxy's mind and body. She had attempted to use her control over Roxy for vengeful purposes but the Winx were able to free Roxy from Nebula's control by the skin of their teeth.

The White Circle is not mentioned again until Musa is given the transmitter from Flora who got it from Stella. While she was occupied with her budding career as a musician with her newfound producer, Jason Queen, Roxy and the rest of the Winx were successful in defeating the Wizards of the Black Circle and were led to an island off the coast of Ireland called Tir Nan Og. Using the White Circle, Roxy was able to open a passage into the Earth Fairies' kingdom and free them, but things soon took a much darker turn when Morgana, the Earth Fairy High Queen, declared war against the Wizards for imprisoning them and the humans for eventually forgetting about them and abandoning them.

Trivia
