Rapunzel is a spirited, daring, and determined young woman. Throughout her life, Rapunzel has dreamt of escaping her tower to experience the outside world, but due to the strict order of her parental figure, and only human companion, Gothel, she remained within the tower. Raised with the use of manipulation, which would warp Rapunzel's mind into believing that, despite her strong curiosity, the world outside of her tower is deathly dangerous, Tiana remains in the confines of her sheltered walls.
Rapunzel is the heroine from the animated feature Tangled and is loosely based on the German title character from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale "Rapunzel". Her long hair, which is said to measure 70 feet in length, not only has magical healing powers but can be used as a weapon. Given the power by a magic golden flower, Mother Gothel kidnaps her as an infant to use her power to keep herself young. 18 years later, Rapunzel sneaks away from her tower with a thief, Flynn Rider, and sets on her own journey to find the flying lanterns that float into the sky every year on her birthday.
