Misunderstood characters 1

Disney villain fact time! Although apparently seen by some as over-sexualised and strange in the original, Ursula is a fantastic villain in the Swedish version of The Little Mermaid. She's funny and wicked and sings like a handsome bastard. She tries to live her own life in her own way and uses situations and people to her advantage, wich arguably isn't as charming as I'd like to think, but she also really cares more about her eel henchmen than power and riches, wich is rare and wonderful in a Disney antagonist. 
Nature fact! Moray eels and octopi are natural enemies. Despite this tremendous obstacle, Ursula, Flotsam and Jetsam have found a place together in life and consider each other family in a very real and honest way.
