Raya and the Last Dragon Characters: Heights and Ages Analysis

Raya and the Last Dragon Characters: Heights and Ages Analysis

Like many of Disney’s recent films, Raya and the Last Dragon has a small cast of characters but a lot of personality.

Shortly after the film was released, Disney also released an official character art book that confirmed the ages and heights of the film’s main characters.

The opening scenes of Raya and the Last Dragon take place 6 years before the film’s main story. This article will focus on the character’s heights and ages after the 6 year time skip.

Raya is 18 years old and 5’6″ (167.6 cm). Namaari, Raya’s rival, is the same age as Raya (18 years old) though a little taller at 5’8″ (172.7 cm).

It is unclear how old Sisu is as she is an ancient water dragon, but in her human form, she is 5’6″ (167.6 cm).

After Chief Benja’s failed attempt at uniting the tribes of Kumandra, the magical Dragon Gem is destroyed, releasing the evil Druun into the world.

6 years later, Raya is on the hunt to find the last surviving dragon, hoping to send the Druun back where they came from. But to do so, Raya must complete what Chief Benja set out to do: unite a divided nation.

The lead protagonist of Raya and the Last Dragon, Raya, is 18 years old after the film’s opening scenes.

Though she has trained all her life to be the Dragon Gem’s guardian, she is only 5’6″ (167.6 cm) and not overly muscular.

Raya is very aware of her responsibility not just to her tribe but also to the Dragon Gem.

This responsibility has made Raya exceptionally mature and goal orientated, but she can still loosen up and have fun.

Before the Dragon Gem was destroyed, Raya was a generally open person. But Namaari’s betrayal scared Raya’s ability to trust- something she has to overcome if she has any chance of uniting the tribes.



Sisu is the only surviving water dragon, so it is unclear how old she is. Sisu’s height in her dragon form is also hard to distinguish.

In her human form, she seems to be the same height as Raya (5’6″ (167.6 cm)) when she isn’t slouching. 

Though she is a mystical, legendary dragon, Sisu is a goofball in her dragon and human form. She is fun, silly, and constantly making jokes, which are all a testament to her loving personality.

Sisu has been alone for a long time and is no longer used to how humans live. This makes her seem much more naive than she is. 

However, Sisu is very aware of the responsibility of being a water dragon. So, she can be strategic and severe when the situation calls for it. 



Namaari is the same age (18 years old) and has the same status (a princess) as Raya, though Namaari is the taller of the two at 5’8″ (172.7 cm). Despite being similar at first glance, Namaari and Raya have very different personalities.

Perhaps it is her fearsome glare or her more muscular build due to her exceptional martial arts skills; either way, Namaari is a feared warrior and princess. 

She genuinely wants to do what is best for her people, like any leader, which is why she plots to steal Heart Land’s Dragon Gem at the beginning of Raya and the Last Dragon.

She believed the gem to be why the Heart tribe was prospering while Fang Land was lacking. 

Beneath her distrusting, lonesome exterior, Namaari is very caring but has few friends. She also has a love for dragons, much like Raya. 



Like most younger characters in Raya and the Last Dragon, Boun is only 10 years old but has already experienced a tragic loss. Boun’s height is reflective of his age, as he stands at only 4″ (137.2 cm). 

Despite losing his family to the Druun at such a young age, Boun clearly knows how to take care of himself. 

So much so that he has his very own restaurant business – the Shrimporium – which he successfully runs. 

Boun’s self-sufficiency and quick mind make him much more mature than any 10 year old should be.

Though this also makes him a valuable asset to Raya when Boun puts his cooking career on hold to help restore the Dragon Gem. 

Chief Benja

Chief Benja

Chief Benja may not have been the toughest or burliest of chiefs at only 5’6″ (167.6 cm), but when he is petrified at 35 years old at the beginning of Raya and the Last Dragon, he is a hero. 

The Heart Land tribe has been the only tribe responsible for guarding the Dragon Gem for centuries. 

This doesn’t necessarily give Chief Benja power over the other Lands but does make him a voice of authority. This is why he can gather all of the clans in one place in hopes of uniting them. 

Chief Benja is shown to be a very loving father to Raya, training her to protect the Dragon Gem but not pushing her to a breaking point. 

Their bond is what makes Chief Benja’s petrification so heartbreaking to watch. 



At 40 or so years old, Tong has seen and experienced many terrible things, including the loss of his daughter. Tong is the largest character in Raya and the Last Dragon at 6’8″ (203.2 cm).

Tong’s trauma has not turned him evil or dangerous as his intimidating appearance would suggest. 

Tong is the only member of the Spine Land that survived a devastating attack by the Druun. 

Not only did this attack make Tong lose his family, but it also made him the person solely responsible for Spine Land’s legacy and Dragon Gem piece. 

A warrior through and through, Tong believes his purpose is to face his greatest fears and defeat them. But his strength and brutality hide how much of a soft, lovable guy Tong truly is. 



The Chief of Fang Land, Virana is older than Chief Benja at roughly 45 years old after the film’s initial introduction.

Virana has the stance and physical power of a Chief, standing at 6″ (182.9 cm). This makes her the tallest female in Raya and the Last Dragon. 

There is no doubt that Virana is a capable, caring Chief for the Fang Land. She is willing to go to extreme lengths to ensure her tribe’s survival… even at the expense of other tribes. 

It is Virana’s daughter (Namaari) who plots to steal the dragon gem from the Heart tribe (and subsequently breaking it in the process) that leads to the release of the Drunn on Kumandra. 

From that moment on, Virana fears being blamed for her daughter’s misdeed and what that would mean for Fang Land.

She orders Namaari to stop Raya from reforming the Dragon Gem in the hopes that the rest of Kumandra will never know what she did. 

Tuk Tuk 

Tuk Tuk

Tuk Tuk is a hybrid of 3 animals (pill bug, armadillo, and pug), making it difficult to tell how old he is.

At the start of the film, Tuk Tuk is still young and very small, but after the opening scenes, he has grown significantly to 5″ (152.4 cm). 

Raya’s loyal pet (and mode of transportation), Tuk Tuk, is one of Raya’s closest friends. They have an unbreakable bond meaning no matter where Raya is, Tuk Tuk is not far behind. 

Though Tuk Tuk is full of personality in his own way, acting more as comedic relief in the film, he has clearly grown up alongside Raya. He has the same bravery and kindness as Raya. 

Little Noi

Little Noi

As her name would suggest, Little Noi (or simply Noi) is the smallest character in Raya and the Last Dragon at only 2″ (61 cm). Though this should be expected as Noi is only 2 years old.

Having been raised by the Ongis, Noi is incredibly smart and even more mischievous. 

Noi knows exactly how cute she is, happily allowing people to fall for her adorable toddler facade. But it is all a hustle, a distraction, while the rest of the Ongis steal anything they can get their hands on. 

That isn’t to say that Noi is a bad person. She is just a toddler, after all. The Ongis are more a nuisance than harmful.
