STORYBROOKE CHARACTERS

HENRY MILLS

SEASON 1

Henry is Emma’s son whom she put up for adoption 10 years ago. Henry somehow discovers the truth about Storybrooke from a book of fairy tales. This leads him to finding Emma in the hope of breaking the Evil Queen’s spell.

Henry is the adopted son of Regina/Evil Queen and the grandson of Prince Charming/John Doe and Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard. He is named after Regina’s father, whom she killed to trigger the curse. Henry doesn’t exist in fairytale land (at least not yet).

Charming and Emma arrive before Greg can kill Regina. He goes digging for his father’s body and is devastated to find his clothing and a skull buried exactly where Regina claimed to have buried Kurt.

Later, Rumples rips her heart from her chest and crushes it to dust.

    Hi Roco,

    I absolutely love this character guide. I have an addition that you could add to the this guide. If you remember from the Cinderella episode, Ruby briefly spoke to a mechanic named Billy or something. She was afraid he was going to break her glass wolf.

    Think it could be someone important.

    Not really a cast “character,” but definitely seen in both worlds, is Emma’s baby blanket. It was knitted by Granny in FT, white with purple ribbons, and Emma’s name was embroidered on it – which explains how Emma is the ONLY one to retain her name. She was wrapped in it when she was placed in the enchanted cupboard so, of course, also when found by the side of a road in Reality. It was laid over the back of a chair in Emma’s Boston apartment (Pilot episode); and is among the items Emma had sent to her in Storybrooke. You can see it on a chair in Mary Margaret’s flat as Emma is unpacking the box (Cinderella episode). I think the blanket is an important key, perhaps even helping someone remember who they were in FT land.

        No, Mrs. E, we haven’t seen that yet. You may be remembering the final scene of “True North” where Emma is in her police car looking at her own case file which contains newspaper clippings. The headlines:

        “Still No Leads On Deadbeat Parents”
        “Baby Emma Remanded To Foster System”
        “After weeks of futile searching, Baby Emma turned-over to Child Services for care”
        “7 Year Old Boy Finds Baby On Side Of Road” –>
        \\ “A local boy discovers a newborn baby wrapped in a blanket on the roadside. Police ask public for any information regarding parents’ identities.”

        Emma is interrupted by Henry bringing her pumpkin pie, then The Stranger arrives. Unfortunately, there is no dateline (city, date) to be seen on the clippings.

    What about the possibility of Dr. Whale being Pinocchio? He’s the only fairy-tale character I can think of that was swallowed by a whale. (Jonah was swallowed by a whale too, but that’s a Biblical story, so my bet is that the Dr. is Pinocchio.)

      Rachel, he might be a bit too old to be Pinocchio, but that’s certainly an interesting possibility.

      I know that some folks think he could be the actual whale (in human form, of course), which might be the best bet at this stage.

    • Tim says

      Another popular theory about Dr. Whale is that he could be the Big Bad Wolf. If you notice in ep. 3 when he’s on his date with Mary Margaret, he can’t stop staring at Ruby. He might be the wolf and his natural instincts draw him to Red Riding Hood because he wants to eat her or something (of course in the real world eating her means something completely different but you get the idea)

    Love the show and love this recap- thank Goodness there’s a show on that revives the characters and tales we grew up with (and does interesting things by combining them into one giant world)! Maybe I’m old fashioned, but today’s culture seems devoid of anything remotely hope giving. As a culture, we need our Fairy Tales now more than ever… <3

    Here is something I was thinking about after the last episode.. Emma had a star on her birthday cupcake she blew out the candle Henry appeared. Emma was given a star badge the rumble happened. Emma was holding a silver star keychain *don’t remember what was happening then. OK now , then Emma has lost her shirt twice one time she took one from the laundry the other time she had one given her by Henry. Think about this cause in the real world she has no parents. Have you heard the Grimm tale called “The Money Star” ? What are your thoughts??

    I am obsessed with finding the clue to the characters identity by their name. Nolan (Prince Charming-David Nolan) means “champion” in Gaelic. I think the theory that Dr. Whale is Pinnochio is great. I kept thinking Jonah, but forgot that Pinnochio was swallowed by the whale. We will see. Love the show.

    I believe the “blind witch” we see in the (failed) curse scene is in fact a Stygian Witch from Greek mythology. It’s clear throughout the series thus far that they aren’t limiting themselves to any single canon of tales.

    Anyway, the 3 Stygian Witches shared a single eye and tooth… go look up the Perseus/Medusa stories if you’re interested.

    BUUUUT lesser-known is that the witches were also known as “Graeae” (or “gray” for those of us who are keeping track of colors in OUaT), and that these witches were most often symbolized by… A SWAN!

    ooooooh. neat.

      i think you’re on the right track with the blind witches, i immediatley thought of the stygian witches when we first saw the blind witch. I also think that Dr. Whale could be Perseus due to the “god-like complex” and in Moby Dick Perseus is referred to as the first whaleman.

        It definetely is her, I don’t think we see the old witch again. If the real life name of that witch was Ms. Ginger (Gingerbread house, got it?) then it stands to reason she was intended to be the blind witch from Hansel and Gretel but got replaced…

          However, if they replaced her role she would not have been shown in the real world since the younger blind witch dies in true north, maybe the writers will tie the two witches together. Or maybe they have no relation at all, the older one in the second episode wasn’t blind her eyes were just sown shut. I think with them showing her and the Ogre in the real world already they will eventually show their stories along with the other villains around the fire in episode two. The season keeps getting better though, and just like they did in lost I think they will be dropping some more shockers soon.

      The actresses who play Cora, Queen of Hearts, and Nurse Severe are all different. Although, as far as the Queen of Hearts is concerned, it wouldn’t matter all that much since we never see her face and a different actress could play the part.

      As far as Wonderland, does the curse extend to this realm? If so, you got a whole host of characters to show up in Storybrooke (Alice, twiddle Dee/Dum, white night, etc.). Jefferson did tell Emma that there are LOTS of realms, some with magic some without…
      I speculate however, only Fairytale land is affected by the curse. Like Emma, Jefferson wasn’t in Fairytale land when the curse struck (being in Wonderland), so he never lost his memories (Emma had no memories to lose). However, his daughter was caught up in the curse, so Jefferson travelled to Storybrooke after escaping from Wonderland (you see the scar around his neck when he was fighting Emma and Margret just before falling out the window) and without magic was stuck there since there wasn’t any magic for him to use to get his hat to work.
      The one thing I’m not clear about is the last scene (Emma is reading Henry’s book) with Jefferson madly making hats… was this during his stay in Wonderland or after his visit (escape?) from Storybrooke Maine?

      The guy mopping the floor? I think it’s a tribute to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and represents “Chief” Bromden, a silent Native American patient (believed to be deaf and mute by the mental ward staff and other patients) who was mopping the floor or other janitorial tasks, but was actually listenning in on conversations. IIRC, the book was narrated by this character’s perspective.

    Hello, First I must say “THANK YOU” This is a great website. I really don’t watch tv but I have been watching OUAT on the internet. I love this show! The last show I’ve watched on a basis was Sex and the City. I recently read somewhere online that once an person is dead they stay dead. But I don’t feel that is true. We seen the Huntsman/Graham was killed twice. Kathryn heart was found and sent to some lab for dna testing and now she is found alive. The FTL people don’t grow old. I wonder… being they are from FTL they might have some kind of magic power within themselves. just my thoughts. Thanks Michel

      Welcome michel, very interesting thoughts. ‘Death’ in OUAT is an intriguing topic. As you noted, dead is not always dead, especially when Regina is feeling hearty.

      We know that the Fairytalies can die in both realms (Leopold and Graham, for example), but whether they can also be ressurrected, now that is another question. If I recall correctly, Rumples didn’t seem to think that Prince 1.0 could be brought back. Still, interesting to ponder the ‘rules’ of death in the show.

    Gold is bringing magic back to Storybrooke or is Storybrooke being transformed back into FTL? Why would Henry consider this a ‘bad’ thing?

    I suspect Gold is bringing back the magic since his search for Baelfire (who is Rumplestiltskin’s son) has failed, thus he want’s his magic back in order to continue to search other realms.

    Another thought… who was Henry’s father? Emma reveals to Mary Margaret that Henry’s father was far from being a hero (Emma told Henry that his father was a hereo and a firefighter that died saving a family). She said that Henry was better off not knowing the truth. Could the father be a grown up Baelfire?

      Both the long-haired man and the severe nurse down in the psychiatric ward are hat-tips to the classic book and movie, “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.” The man’s movie counterpart is “Chief” and the nurse’s is “Nurse Ratched.” No, they’re not from a fairy tale; but it’s a clever way for the show-runners to give recognition to fictional characters who are special to them.

      I don’t think that is as bad as people wanting Baelfire to be Henry’s father, though…. In order for that to have happened, a 32 year old Bae’ would have had to hook up with a 17 year old Emma, not only becoming the father of a bastard child but, also becoming guilty of the statutory rape of a 17 year old, under the care of a state runned group or foster home…. or even worse!, the statutory rape of a 17 year old “on the run” from a state runned group or foster home……. just doesn’t sound like the morals of the Baelfire we were introduced to in FTL….. just sayin.

      ps; do you suppose that’s what landed a pregnant 17yr old Emma in a Phoenix jail where she gave birth to Herny on her 18th Bday in the Fall of 2001?? Hmm?

    Hey Roco!

    How was your summer!?
    I never noticed, for some reason, the we have the Blind Witch labled as deceased. I remember a few believing that there may have been two Blind Witches, but as the season went on we discovered she and Ginger from Storybrooke were one in the same. The same reason that made most believe there were two, turned out to be the same reason, once understood, that we make this new claim. Because of Hansel & Gretel and their father the Woodsman not aging as they should have, before they crossed over into Storybrooke as the Blind Witch had, some 50 or 60 years (or more!),it made it appear to be two different witches, based on the unchanged ages of Josef, Ava and Michael in Storybrooke. However, until it was made clear by Rumplestiltskin, in the season 1 Finale, “A Land Without Magic”, where the Evil Queen had sent the Woodsman and his children Hansel & Gretel, we were left to speculate. Rumplestiltskin, following Prince Charming into the place that the Evil Queen had magically tossed him using her mirror, informs Prince Charming that he has now entered the “Infinite Forest” that apparently exists in an eternity where there is no time or way out….except through magic! It is clear now that the Woodsman and his children wandered around endlessly with no hope of finding one another and remained there some 60+ years! until their cross over into Storybrooke, via magic (The Dark Curse), unaged! Which we can now be certain that the young Blind Witch from “True North” did not perish in the oven and most likely is the *old* Blind Witch at the first (failed) casting of the Dark Curse. Also explaining why there is an old, virtually blind women strongly resembling the Old Blind Witch named “Ginger” in Storybrooke.

    However,….. it does beg another 2 questions…… Just how old IZZZZ Regina?
    And just what year was it when she stopped aging??

      Hey Doc,

      I had a good one thanks, hope you did too.

      Very interesting points, we might have to re-examine the case of the Blind Witch. I do wonder about the timeline, though. In the same episode (“True North”), Regina retrieves the apple that she later uses to poison Snow, by which time Snow has met the dwarfs, etc. We can assume that the period between Regina getting the apple (1.09) and using it as a weapon against Snow (1.21) isn’t the 50 or 60(ish) years that have seemingly aged the Blind Witch. Though I guess, if it is the same witch, magic could be involved.

      Good point about Regina, are we talking FTL or Earth years? ;)

      It is revealed in episode 2.06 “Tallahassee” that Mystery guy is Neil Cassidy who becomes Emma BF and is very likely (although not 100% confirmed) Henry’s father.

      What I find really interesting is Neil’s conversation with August (Pinocho) in Portland OR (2001). From the dialog and interaction between the two, it seems they know each other (at least in passing). Whatever was in the box was enough to convince Neil to dump Emma. I’m speculating that it’s an artifact from FTL and I don’t see how someone NOT from FTL could be persuaded. Thus I really really suspect Neil to be Baelfire (which makes Henry, Rumples\Gold’s grandson … Maybe that’s why Gold gave Henry the dream amulet for free? It was also Gold who found Henry the orphan to be adopted by the EQ/Regina – to assure his grandson is in the lap of luxery/keep an eye on him/bait to draw out Baelfire/Neil?)

      I gotta go with Dr. Victor Frankenstien, for Dr. Whale!…. there’s just too much pointing in his direction!…. It was the Storybrooke Singles video that gave it away for Dr. Whale, for me!. It led you right to all the hints we were getting from that video “and” the other clues from the FaceBook Interactive and Archie Hoppers notes!
      Most are having problems with the womanizing characteristics of Dr.Whale
      They too are from Mary Shelly’s Frankenstien. Her husband, Percy Shelly, who was the main model for her Frankenstien character, was also a womanizer who cheated on her with her step-sister Claire(family) and eventually ran off with her.
      Mary Shelly’s character “Victor”….which was also Percy’s pen name…. falls in love with his step cousin Elizabeth(family) and eventually become fiances. I see Mary’s connection to the two as she is calling her husband “Dog” enough to creep family!….That sounds like the kind of guy that would ask if the Nuns were “like able to date” Ha!

      The other clues went down like this: (from the SB Singles vid)
      Believes himself the “victor in all situations.
      Suffers from a God complex.
      Good at “making” friends. lol

      “Every lucky lady gets dinner at Granny’s, a single carnation and a visit to my condo’ where I’ll play the ‘Best of Sting’ and the sparks will fly!”

      Sting – Appeared as Charles Frankenstien in 1985′s “The Bride”
      Sparks – Will fly, as they did in the movie Frankenstien’s Monster, as Dr.
      ……………Frankenstien used massive amounts of electrcity to revive
      …………… (HIS PRINCE), the Monster.
      Whale – James Whale directed the 1st film adaptation for Universal in1931
      Single Carnation – At the University of Oxford carnations are traditionally worn to all examinations; White for the first exam, Pink for exams in between and a Red for the last exam. Percy Shelly studied at the University of Oxford.

      It looks like perhaps Regina may have used Jefferson and his Hat to relm jump into Frankenstien’s world to bring him back to FTL to revive Daniel! And when the deal went wrong and Whale/Frankie couldn’t revive Daniel…well, you know how Regina is when she doesn’t get her way!…she curses Whale/Frankie as being one of his own Monsters, thus a New Mashup!…. Dr Victor Frankenstien is both the Doctor AND the Monster!….. Hahahaha! Should be interesting!!

So he was under her control (while he didn’t know who he was) and now he wants her dead…he’s not a villian…I was reading up on Whales in history and the story of Moby Dick might be closer.

      Other then homage to the “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, there’s no indication that there’s anything more to these characters (and Nurse Severe is NOT the queen of hearts, but as shown is Cora).. However keep in mind, that Dr Whale turned out to be Victor Frankenstein, so there’s a possibility that the writers might have a story for Nurse Severe.

      There is another possibility, Regina did give Nurse Severe a red rose… There is a story about Snow-White and Rose-Red, where Rose-Red is Snow’s sister who encounter a nasty Dwarf (much like Rumples…). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow-White_and_Rose-Red.

        OK, it’s confirmed in this week’s episode that Baelfire is Neil and Henry’s father.

        However, I think he must have been to Neverland at some point and was one of the lost boys (perhaps even Peter Pan? Or less likely one of the pirates) – how else would decades (centuries even) pass between him leaving the enchanted forest via the magic bean portal and now living in NYC looking 30 something in age? Remember, except for Storybook (and the Curse), there’s no “magic” native to our world and as far as I know, there’s no “science” that slows/stops the aging process.

        So, if that is true, then he should know about Hook (and when he decides to travel to Storybook) should produce some very interesting plot developments.

      They ARE part of a organized movement (whether government supported or not remains to be seen) to destroy magical incursions.

      2) Dragon’s presence in Hong Kong
      3) Peter Pan’s(?) shadow (the wraith?) stealing boys to Neverland in England (from what I gather took place in the late 1800′s)

      So I’m wondering what other incursions happened. Since there is a well funded society of “Hunters” (To borrow from the Supernatural TV series), there has to be a lot more incursions then the ones that were explicitly shown in OUAT. A very prominent one would be King Arthur/Merlin (and if one includes organized religions, then a slew of magical events to choose from, aka Jesus, Moses, Mohammed just to name a few that did “miracles”).

    2) I think that Pan’s obsession with Henry and his goal of bringing magic to ALL realms… is a means to leave Neverland (which would fit in well with point 1 above… Pan can’t leave Neverland while his Shadow can).

    3) I also think it’s going to be David\Charming who replaces Peter Pan as “Overlord” of Neverland. And Snow will of course stay with David and finally have a happy ending (In other words, I don’t expect either will be in much of season 4, except as flashback)
