Official Disney BioEdit
"From the outside, Elsa looks poised, regal and reserved, but in reality, she lives in fear as she wrestles with a mighty secret-she was born with the power to create ice and snow. It's a beautiful ability, but also extremely dangerous. Haunted by the moment her magic nearly killed her younger sister, Anna, Elsa has isolated herself, spending every waking minute trying to suppress her growing powers. Her mounting emotions trigger the magic, accidentally setting off an eternal winter that she can't stop. She fears she's becoming a monster and that no one, not even her sister, can help her."
As a young child, Elsa learned she had the ability to create ice and snow, and often used it to play with her younger sister, Anna. However, at one point when she was eight years old, she unintentionally struck Anna in the head with a blast of snow, rendering her unconscious and nearly killing her. Their parents, the king and queen, brought the two children to the ancient trolls that lived in the Valley of the Living Rock. Their leader, Pabbie, was able to heal Anna. Pabbie also removed Anna's memories of Elsa's magic to keep her safe, and informs the king and queen that Elsa's powers are dangerous and she must learn to control them. After the incident, the castle gates were closed and Elsa and Anna were kept separated. Anna, with her knowledge of her near-death experience removed, came to believe Elsa despised her for shutting her out, unaware that Elsa only did so to protect her. In her confinement, her parents helped her to try and control her powers, and she was given gloves to suppress them.
When Elsa turned 18, her parents left on a trip, but unfortunately died due to the heavy storm, much to Elsa and Anna's grief. Three years afterwards, Elsa was to be crowned queen of Arendelle, and while Anna is overjoyed to be able to leave the kingdom, Elsa is nervous due to having to remove her gloves to hold the royal orb and scepter. Fortunately, she manages to control her powers during her coronation, though she instantly puts her gloves back on in fear. At the later celebration party, Elsa finally exchanges words with Anna in the first time in years, but when Anna mentions spending more time with her, Elsa blows the idea off, stating it can't happen. Shortly afterwards, Anna returns to Elsa with Prince Hans, for their wedding blessings. Elsa is astounded Anna would marry someone she just met and refuses to bless them, leading to an argument between the two that ends with Elsa revealing her powers to the others in the ballroom, including Anna.
