Portrayed By Sam Riley
"And in return for saving my life, I am your servant. Whatever you need." - Diaval to Maleficent

Diaval is a shapeshifter and Maleficent's right hand. Acting as her eyes in the sky, he assists Maleficent by helping her spy on the King Stefan's castle and the lands around the Moors. After being saved by Maleficent as a raven, he agreed to be her servant and act as her "wings".

Physical Appearance Edit

In human form, Diaval appears as a good-looking, lean, and clean cut individual. With a relatively average stature for a male, Diaval is slightly taller than Maleficent. Whilst his frame is rather small, Diaval's chest and face have markings that are reminiscent of feathers. In his other animal forms, there is always something birdlike, whether it be a feathers, talons, or a beak. Diaval himself has black slicked back hair, very dark brown eyes, and a fair complexion. Throughout most to the film, Diaval always wears black clothing with an open shirt, a belt, and a matching coat. At the end of the film, however, he can also be seen holding Maleficent's staff and wearing a coat designed with sharp animal skin.

Origin Edit

Diaval originally was a raven.

Powers and Abilities Edit

  • Shapeshifting: Diaval can transform into any animal, however, it is dependent on Maleficent. Diaval has transformed into the shapes of a human, of a wolf, of a horse, and of a dragon. But, he only ever transforms at Maleficent's will. She generally keeps him in his human form, as she prefers him to be able to converse with him, as well as offer assistance due to her disability.

Maleficent Edit

Diaval was a raven in the Moors. One day he flew into the Human Kingdoom and some man caught him in a net. Maleficent saw it and transformed Diaval into a human. The man, who caught Diaval, became scared and ran away, claiming to have caught a demon. Diaval became Maleficent's servant, and her wings.

Trivia Edit

It can be noted that even though Diaval can shift into many different forms, he still retains some characteristics of his original raven self.

  • In his human form, his nose is slightly longer and sharper than normal. This mimics his beak.
  • In his wolf form, his paws appear more like talons.
  • In his horse form, his mane appears to have the texture of feathers, and his snout is sharper than a regular horse.
  • In his dragon form, along with scales, there is a feathery texture along his back.
