―Ayo to John Walker

The Dora Milaje are an elect group of warriors who serve as the all-female special forces for Wakanda. The Dora Milaje carry out several duties, most notably serving as the Black Panther ‘s personal bodyguards.


Serving T’Chaka

“It’s these two Grace Jones-looking chicks. They holding spears.”
“Open it.”
“You’re serious?”
“They won’t knock again.”
―James and N’Jobu

The Dora Milaje served King T’Chaka during his prison term as the Black Panther. In 1992, two Dora Milaje accompanied King T’Chaka to the apartment home of the clandestine Prince N’Jobu in Oakland, California after arriving via stealth-craft. After confirming N’Jobu ‘s identity, they struck their spears on the ground, causing the lights to go out during a short range EMBurst to allow the Black Panther an capture. When the light up returned, King T’Chaka was standing between them, as N’Jobu knelt per his standing. After removing his helmet, T’Chaka dismissed the Dora back to the Royal Talon Fighter on the roof. [ 1 ]

Vienna Aftermath

In 2016, following the death of King T’Chaka, T’Challa was escorted by Ayo, a member of the Dora Milaje, to his car when he learned from his Attaché that Bucky Barnes had escaped from the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre Building. The Attaché informed him their traverse satellites are in entire chase of Barnes, when the group was intercepted by Natasha Romanoff ; of whom Ayo ordered out of their way or else she would be removed by coerce, to which T’Challa mused at as he dismissed her to hear what Romanoff had to say. [ 2 ]

“No need, Okoye, I can handle this alone.”
“Just don’t freeze when you see her.”
“What are you talking about? I never freeze.”
―T’Challa and Okoye

anterior to his coronation as King of Wakanda, T’Challa enlisted the help of Okoye, General of the Dora Milaje, to assist him in recruiting Nakia, a War Dog and T’Challa ‘s former fan. As they tracked her down, T’Challa prepared to intercept the slave convoy Nakia had infiltrated when Okoye reminded him not to freeze when he and Nakia saw each other, which T’Challa refuted before dropping from the Royal Talon Fighter .
As he descended, T’Challa released several EMP Beads onto the convoy, disabling their vehicles. After dispatching the guerrilla on the crunch, T’Challa hesitated when he saw Nakia, allowing one of the slave traders to get the drop on them, holding one of the women at point until Okoye appeared, disarming and impaling him with her spear. She then dryly remarked that T’Challa froze as expected, much to the prince ‘s humiliate .
After freeing the slaves, Okoye ordered the group to never speak of the events they ‘d just witnessed before the Wakandans took off in the Royal Talon Fighter, leaving the group awed. Okoye piloted the Flyer back to the Golden City, and by the coming morning had entered into Wakanda. [ 1 ]

T’Challa ‘s coronation

As the three entered Birnin Zana, they were greeted by Dora Milaje escorts, led by Ayo, accompanying Princess Shuri and Queen Mother Ramonda. After having a brief conversation with Shuri, Okoye dismissed the rest of Dora escorts, leading them away to prepare for the festival. Nakia departed to redress so as to arrive in her traditional River Tribe overdress .
late, as the leaders of the Wakandan Tribes and their warriors journeyed down the river to Warrior Falls, the Dora Milaje struck their spears on their riverboat, activating the drain system for the waterfall. The falls reduced to reveals a shroud space just below the cusp of the waterfall, which allowed for the Tribal Elders to gather and visitors to bear witness. As the ceremony commenced, the Dora Milaje took their places along the border of the Falls while Zuri asked for challengers from the Wakandan tribes to face T’Challa in ritual fight to fight for the mantles of Black Panther and King of Wakanda .
When none of the tribes chose to challenge, the Jabari Tribe had then arrived, led by M’Baku. Entering in tribal chant, M’Baku, believing the Golden Tribe had weakened Wakanda ‘s character, challenged T’Challa, who accepted after hearing the Jabari drawing card address of his belated father T’Chaka. As the ritual fight began, both leaders commanded their warriors to take up position surrounding the combatants, with both Jabari tribesmen and Dora Milaje forming a semi-circle boundary with their spears, drawing closer whenever a combatant was downed or nearing the precipice. ultimately, T’Challa bested M’Baku, a lot to Okoye ‘s relief as the Wakandans celebrated their new king. [ 1 ]

Killmonger ‘s challenge

With the storm of arrival of Erik Killmonger with the cadaver of Ulysses Klaue, Okoye then informed T’Challa of Killmonger ‘s arrival, just as the King besides learning at the moment about Killmonger ‘s serve commemorate by a recovered Everette Ross. After W’Kabi brought Killmonger before the Wakandan Council, the Dora Milaje stood cook in the Council Chamber to protect the King and Council Members from the likely menace. But upon his revelation as N’Jobu ‘s son, proved by his monomania of his father ‘s Wakandan Royal Ring, the Dora Milaje were duty limit not to interfere as Killmonger claimed his bloodright to challenge for the toilet and curtain .
At Warrior Falls, the Dora Milaje stand by as the challenge played out. As the challenge was informal, and Killmonger was of no tribe, the Dora stood to witness. They observed as T’Challa was removed of the baron of the Black Panther, to fight as a deadly valet, and battle Killmonger to an eventual lose conflict. Okoye held back her business for T’Challa out of her duty as a Dora to serve whoever may be king. But it was Zuri who broke the clause of non-intervention and prevented a killing blow from Killmonger, thus turning the lost prince ‘s bloodlust onto him. After witnessing T’Challa ‘s supposed end being thrown off the edge at Warrior Falls, the Dora stood to serve their newfangled King and Black Panther ; however, Okoye allowed Nakia to take Ramonda and Shuri into exile to save them from their cousin ‘s wrath.

“Ayo! The King!”
―Okoye to Ayo

When Erik Killmonger was preparing forces to disseminate Wakandan weapons to War Dogs, all were surprised as T’Challa had revealed himself alive by grounding an aircraft. Seeing as he neither died nor yielded, the Challenge for the throne was still ongoing .
But finding Killmonger order the Border Tribe to attack T’Challa rather of finishing the challenge himself, General Okoye ordered the Dora Milaje to stand against him, as his hate and dishonor made him ill-sorted for the Wakandan throne or curtain of the Black Panther. Okoye stayed with a small squad to fight Killmonger, all while having Ayo lead the remaining members to aid T’Challa against the Border Tribe barely on the slope of Mt. Bashenga. Following the M’Baku ‘s reinforcements, the Dora Milaje and Jabari Tribe were triumphant and the remaining Border Tribes men laid down their weapons and kneeled. [ 1 ] In 2018, the Dora Milaje stood aboard T’Challa when he greeted members of the Avengers upon their arrival in the Golden City. Later, they rode in troop brood tanks to the edge of the out force field. They then stood aboard members of the Border Tribe, the Jabari Tribe, and the Wakandan Royal Guard and fought bravely in the battle against the Outriders. The joint Avenger Wakandan forces waged a long battle, suffering many casualties before the arrival of Thor, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot which turned the tide of struggle in their favor and they had managed to defeat the Outriders .
Moments late, Doras on the battlefield watched helplessly as Wakandan warriors disintegrated into dust before them. [ 4 ] Five years late, following the Blip, the Dora were transported via an Inter-Dimensional portal vein by the Masters of the Mystic Arts to fight with their king, princess, and air force officer in the battle against an understudy Thanos and his alien united states army.

“The Dora’s coming for you any minute. In fact, they’re probably lurking outside right now.”
―Bucky Barnes to Baron Zemo

  • In the comics, the Dora Milaje are the personal bodyguards and royal security of Black Panther, recruited from every tribe of Wakanda. In addition with their protective function, they are also a pool of superior Wakandan women for the King to possibly marry.

Behind the Scenes

  • Black Panther producer Nate Moore revealed in an interview with Screen Rant that the betrothal aspect from the comics was deliberately excluded from the Marvel Cinematic Universe incarnation of the group: “You know, that was sort of part of the original Christopher Priest run where they were all betrothed which we felt wasn’t necessary to tell the story of the Dora and in a way we all kind of rejected as being a little creepy. So we will not be exploring that.”[9]
  • The Dora Milaje costumes drew inspiration from Filipino and Japanese elements in addition to its African roots. According to senior visual development illustrator Anthony Francisco, the shoes were meant to look like Japanese jika-tabi boots, the beadwork and tassles from Ifugao decor in the Philippines, the arm bands and neck rings from Ndebele women, and the rest of the costume from the Maasai. With around 80% of the costume from African sources, Francisco described the breakdown of other influences as “five percent Samurai, five percent ninja, and five percent Ifugao tribe.“[10]
