Cinderella was one of the Fables and the last of the three ex-wives of Prince Charming, along with Snow White and Briar Rose. She worked as a secret agent for Fabletown, formerly for Bigby Wolf and then for Beast, performing several tasks including interrogation, spying and assassination. At one time, she worked as a diplomat of Fabletown in the Cloud Kingdoms. She owned a shoe store, The Glass Slipper, as a cover for her spy work.

BiographyEdit

Cinderella was born to two wealthy unnamed parents. At some point in her youth, Cinderella's mother died and her father eventually remarried a woman who had two daughters of her own. [1] Cinderella was soon reduced to a life of servitude, forced by her stepmother and two stepsisters to perform countless menial chores day after day. Based on Cinderella's past remarks, her father died sometime after remarrying.[2]

Cinderella Stepfamily

Her early life as a scullery maid

One later afternoon, Prince Charming invited all the kingdom's young ladies to a royal promenade at his castle. Unable to go for one reason or another, Cinderella wailed in anguish until her magically endowed Fairy Godmother appeared and transformed the poor girl form a common house servant into a beautiful maiden.

Aided by enchantments, she attended the ball, but under the condition she return home before the stroke of midnight, as her party dress would revert back into her old rags and all her Fairy Godmother's other spells would be broken in a momentary instant. Despite this stipulation, Cinderella's evening turned out to be a splendid success: she entered the palace, wooed the spry Prince, but was abruptly forced to return to her home before she degenerated back into her rags. In her haste, Cinderlla accidentally left behind a glass slipper on the steps of the palace.

Cinderella Married

Her "happy ending"

Prince Charming, so captivated by the strange maiden, tried the glass slipper on each girl in the land until they were reunited again. Cinderella then married Prince Charming soon afterwards and became his third wife. The marriage was short-lived however, as her husband was unfaithful.

Before Cinderella could divorce her husband, however, the Adversary's armies laid siege to the country and the two were forced to stay together during the Exodus. As she still claimed to be his loving wife, Prince Charming was granted safe passage into the mundane world on one of the last boats voyaging to the realm.

Arriving in the mundane world sometime in the early nineteenth century, Cinderella promptly divorced Prince Charming and became apart of the Fabletown community, using the last of her fortune to open up a shoe store called the Glass Slipper.[3]

Eventually, Cinderella was secretly recruited by Bigby Wolf to be a secret agent for Fabletown, her role known only to him and a few select others.

On a covert mission, Cinderella made her way to Paris, France to seek out Ichabod Crane. Her goal being to seduce him into willing revealing Fabletown secrets to join the Adversary's side, gathering evidence against him.

One of her next missions was to visit the Cloud Kingdoms. She was able to get their unofficial support to allow Bigby to use them as an entry and exit point for a retaliatory mission to The Empire.[4] Later, she managed to get them to sign a treaty. The treaty wouldn't have been signed if Cinderella hadn't managed to cure the high king's ear ache.[5]

She was also charged with a mission to pick up an important package for Fabletown during the war, which turned out to be Pinocchio himself. She carried out her mission despite running into trouble, and once near Fabletown she was attacked by Rodney and June, two ex-wooden soldiers, spies of the Adversary.

She was injured, but survived thanks to her Fable nature.

PersonalityEdit

Cinderella has described herself as an excellent spy, a competent assassin, and a lousy diplomat. She has a mean streak and has a habit of making men angry.[5]

To better maintain the secrecy of what she does, Cinderella puts on the facade of being an air-headed valley girl.

Powers, Abilities, ParaphernaliaEdit

  • Immortality: As a Fable, Cinderella is unaging and remarkably difficult to kill. Allegedly the degree of a Fable's immortality is based on the popularity of their tales. Being a Fable who's tale is common knowledge to most Mundys, Cinderella has a greater caliber of immortality than most other Fables.

  • Skilled Combatant: Cinderella is a proficient hand-to-hand combatant and a fair marksman with several firearms. Furthermore, she has been trained in fencing by Bluebeard .

  • Glass Slipper: Cinderella kept her original glass slipper as a keepsake of sorts, and in the end proved she could use it as a fatal weapon.[6]
