Eden is a character in Disney's Aladdin television series.
Eden is displayed as a kind, caring, yet impulsive and easily angered genie when someone threatens her friends or her boyfriend, Genie, when she meets Dhandi, she "bends the rules" and changes Dhandi's humble wish of a sandwich to allow it so that Dandhi never goes hungry again for the rest of her life, this suggests that she is not as honest as Genie is with his wishes and often finds ways to work around the system to make the wishes work out her way. She is also proven to be as unusual and playful as Genie with her magic as shown when she transforms herself into a number of different costumes and creatures.
Eden is proven to be very protective and loyal to those who are important to her, as seen when she chooses to stay with Dhandi when she accidentally wishes the two could stay together forever, as she felt Dhandi needed her more than Genie and became furious in the episode "The Book of Khartoum", when Genie was kidnapped by Mozenrath to help him create the philosopher stone, and impulsively stormed after them without heeding Aladdin's warning of being careful. She was even willing to switch places with Genie to set him free, though was later tricked by Mozenrath and both were set free by Aladdin.
Role in the series
Eden is a beautiful Genie who was discovered in a bottle by an optimistic young orphan named Dhandi - whose first wish is merely to never go hungry for the rest of her life. Genie spots her and falls in love with her while searching for his recently-stolen lamp, the two subsequently sharing a date around Saturn. Like Genie, Eden has shown a willingness to find loopholes in spoken wishes to make things work out for the best; while fulfilling Abis Mal's wishes to the letter after he stole her bottle, banishing Genie to the bottom of the ocean and making him a massive superhuman, she also set things up so that Genie could escape his imprisonment and Abis Mal could be returned to normal, stating that he never specified that his wishes remain valid forever.
Unfortunately, Abis Mal's third wish is for Eden to turn Aladdin and Genie into cockroaches so that he could squash them - unable to actually wish for them to die directly - but Abu is able to steal the bottle and throw it back to Dhandi, who uses her second wish to wish for Eden not to grant that wish, resulting in Abis Mal being the one who becomes a cockroach. In the end, Dhandi accidentally uses her last wish to make Eden stay with her forever when she says that she wishes they could always be together, postponing Genie's and Eden's romance until Dhandi's life ends. However, Eden tells Genie that she is all that Dhandi has and that she cannot just leave her at that point in life, to which Genie understands. The two tell each other that they will wait until the time comes that they will finally be together.
In "The Book of Khartoum", Dhandi is invited to the palace for Eden and Genie to have a date, but Genie is captured by Monzenrath to have his power drained. This infuriates Eden who decides to go after him in the Land of the Black Sand, but ironically she is captured and her power drained. But she reveals that this can't be the end of her, because the only thing that would reverse Dhandi's wish would be another wish and so somehow they have to be saved, and that's what happened. And after Aladdin rescues the two, they find a way to restore their powers, and get rid of the magic gem where their powers had been placed.
- Like Genie, Eden is bound by the rules of being a genie meaning that she is unable to kill anyone, make people fall in love with each other or bring people back from the dead. However she proves that she can move a strong distance outside the proximity of her bottle which is shown when she goes to the Land of the Black Sand to rescue Genie whilst Dhandi stays with the bottle in Agrabah.
- Interestingly Eden is much better when it comes to cheating the rules than Genie.
- The Genie of the bottle that Eden is based on was male and evil, imprisoned in the bottle for his wickedness.
- Eden is named after Barbara Eden, who played Jeannie in Template:WikipediaLink.
- Eden's look seems to be somewhat based on the animated version of Jeannie from the early 1970's, who also had a prominent ponytail and was known to be somewhat interpretative of wishes made.
- Unlike Genie, Eden has five fingers instead of four.
