Nayla is the guardian of the Shrine of Powers. She debuted in the 1st issue of the New Power saga.
Nayla seems to be a special member of Kandrakar's council and wear an ornate robe and has black curly hair. She looks old and is gigantic. She was isolated from the rest of the congregation because of her duty as the guardian of the Shrine of Powers. It is indicated in the comic books that Nayla still follows the age old rules of Kandrakar which is why she is seen contradicting the Oracle's order to free the elemental powers of the mystical fortress.
Shrine of Powers
The Shrine of Powers is a sacred place in Kandrakar that only Nayla (the guardian) and the Oracle can enter. In it lies the powers of Kandrakar, in their purest and most powerful form. The oracle freed these powers to be used by the girls to protect Kandrakar from the outer threats. These powers enabled the W.I.T.C.H. girls to battle their opponents in their most powerful form and these causes them to have new transformation.
