Fate: The Winx Saga
The Specialists all wear light black leather armor over a sweater with the Alfea logo embedded on the upper part of the sleeves. They carry a sword on their back and have a dagger strapped to their front armor. Riven is an exception, he is shown to wear two shorter swords on his back rather than one regularly sized sword, like most of the Specialists. During his training session with Sky in episode one of the first season, he is also seen using two shorter wooden swords. This implies that Specialists can choose a weapon they prefer, rather than being bound to one kind of weapon.
Changes from the original series
The Specialists are based on the Specialists from the original Winx Club series. The Specialists in the original series were solely male, while the Specialists in Fate: The Winx Saga are both male and female. The showrunner for Fate: The Winx Saga, Brian Young, said that the inclusion of female Specialists was a deliberate attempt at challenging the original Winx Club series' outdated gender norms.
