Characters

Throughout the run of the show, Enteng maintained a normal life, as well as his sanity, trying to cope with all the magical changes that has been happening in his life since he married a fairy princess. He serves as the moral center of the story and the series focused on how Enteng struggled to keep the forces of evil from conquering him and the people that matter to him.

There had been several actresses (and in one instance, an actor) who portrayed this role. When the show started, it was newcomer Alice Dixson who played Faye. She left the show 2 years after and was replaced by model turned actress Tweetie de Leon. She stayed with the show for 4 years until she got married. She also starred in its first 2 movies, Okey Ka, Fairy Ko!, The Movie, and Okey Ka, Fairy Ko! II. During the transition, actor Roderick Paulate, known for his comedic gay roles, filled the spot. After Tweetie de Leon left the show and TAPE Inc. transferring to a different channel (GMA Network), Faye's character was absent for 2 months. She returned to the show being portrayed by a new actress, Dawn Zulueta. She stayed on the show until it ended airing. Kristine Hermosa played the role of Faye in the four movie installments of Enteng Kabisote. On the movies "Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote", Enteng Ng Ina Mo, and Si Agimat, si Enteng Kabisote at si Ako, newcomer Gwen Zamora portrayed Faye.

Ina Magenta is so called, because she is the Inang Reyna (queen mother) of Engkantasya Magenta, one of the regions, and the main city, of the Queendom of Engkantasya. She is strong-willed, yet compassionate as a ruler, and upholds the power of good over the forces of darkness, that are a consistent threat in the Okey ka, Fairy ko! Universe. Charito Solis portrayed this role throughout the run of the series and the second movie installment of the series. For the new generation, Giselle Toengi was cast as Ina Magenta in Enteng Kabisote: Okay Ka, Fairy Ko: The Legend Continues. The change of face was supported by the fact that Ina Magenta went into a "fairy" plastic surgery by the famed Derma Lily (can be a pun for Regal Films matriarch "Mother" Lily Monteverde). The second Enteng Kabisote Franchise brought a new yet "old" face for Ina Magenta. This time it was the original Faye (Alice Dixson) who was cast as Ina Magenta. For the third installment however, Giselle Toengi reprised her role. Here, it was explained that for Ina Magenta to rule the Kingdom quite effectively, she should maintain her freshness and beauty (vanity at its pureness). Now as the story unravels, Ina Magenta's vanity has a price to pay. As she and the other fairies are ogling to a lot of photos (where they would copy the face of the model), Ina Magenta accidentally points to a "man". Thus, Allan K. comes. For the whole course of the movie, Allan K portrayed Ina Magenta. Though after having fallen from their duel with Satana and asking Bathala for help, Ina Magenta morphed back to Giselle Toengi. On the movies "Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote", Enteng Ng Ina Mo, and Si Agimat, si Enteng Kabisote at si Ako, once again another actress portrayed the role of Ina Magenta: Amy Perez.
