The Fairy Godmother is the personification of all the Fairy Godmothers. Over the years she brought many blessings to the many worlds, but her work was spoiled by her very powerful enemy.


Fairy Godmother is shot


The Fairy Godmother, along with her two sister fairies, traveled the many worlds, bringing happiness and blessings to whoever crossed their path; however, they were foiled time and time again by their enemy, a powerful witch who turned their blessings into curses. In turn, they tried to undo her schemes as well, such as when they guided a prince to Rapunzel's tower.

Her meddling with Rapunzel did not stop there. When Rapunzel became pregnant with twins, she made sure the prince didn't acknowledge Rapunzel before his parents and later stole the girls upon birth. Her plans for them remain unknown.

Their contests took their toll as both her sisters died and her own power waned to the point that her spells only worked until midnight. She made Cinderella go to the ball and arranged her "happily ever after",(by turning a pumpkin into a carriage, Cinderella's rags into a beautiful dress etc), until Prince Charming cheated on her, undoing her work.

Deciding to have her way and make everyone happy, she simply resolved to eradicate unhappiness. She traveled to Ultima Thule, where the sun sets only once a year and her powers would work for nine months straight, and slayed King Valemon, placing herself as the ruler. She imposed a law that imposed forced smiles upon the citizens and restricted the use of magic.

With the help of Fables in the Mundy world, she negotiated the trade of magical artifacts in exchange for firearms so she could keep control over the populace during the months when her power would fade. Those with the mundies brought the whole affair to Fabletown's attention, and they dispatched Cinderella to investigate. Cinderella, with the help of Dickory, managed to catch the Fairy Godmother unguarded and powerless. The Fairy Godmother is finally left at the mercy of the people of Ultima Thule.


Fairy Godmother turns men into mice again

The Fairest series reveals that after the Ultima Thule incident, she is locked up and slowly begins to lose her memories. She somehow manages to escape into the Mundy World, where she is found by Cinderella in Amsterdam. The two are then attacked by Rat Men, but they are swiftly defeated by Cindy, only for the Fairy Godmother to be shot in the head by Cinderella's Stepsister and have her wand snapped. However, she makes a full recovery, thanks to the mundies remembering her, and goes on to help Cindy and co defeat the Rat Men, by channeling her magic through Cindy and Marcel to turn the Rat Men back into mice. She then reconciles with Cindy, bitterly commenting on the fact that it took a bullet to her brain to get rid of her "bad parts." She is last seen at the surprise party at the Glass Slipper talking with Snow White.

Notes Edit

With her fondness of apples and her rivalry with Frau Totenkinder, its heavily hinted that she stole Rapunzel's twins. If she did steal them, their current location is still unknown. As the twins were never shown with her at Ultima Thule or her return to Fabletown.

It is possible that the Fairy Godmother and her sisters are based on Flora, Fauna and Merryweather from Disney's Sleeping Beauty because she has pink wings and the others have green and blue respectively. Also, it is shown that they have ties with Briar Rose, and the Fables Encyclopedia indicates that she's a meddler in the princess's life.

The Fairy Godmother is very different to her Disney counterpart when she is seen as the dictator of Ultima Thule, but is very similar following her redemption.
