Snow White

Snow White Power.

Early Life
Snow was born in a small cottage and lived there with her twin sister Rose Red. In their youth, they were inseparable, swearing to each other that nothing would ever come between them. During that time, a bear knocks on their house and asks to let him stay with them. They let them in and he stays through the entire winter with them. When the summer comes, the bear says goodbye to them and leaves. After that, the girls find a dwarf, whose long beard is stuck on a tree, who explains that he got stuck while he was getting wood for his tea kettle. Snow then cuts his beard, setting the dwarf free. He gets angry at the girls and pull out a treasure bag from the tree. That night, Snow tells Rose about a dream of hers of when the bear left them, where he says he needs to return to the woods to protect his treasure from the wicked dwarfs. During the summer the girls find the dwarf again and save him twice. During the last time, a giant bird tells them that they will regret their actions, stating that "For one of you, seven evils await. For the other, the loss of one dear". After being saved, the dwarf gets angry with the girls and piles his treasures while telling them that because they cut his beard, his magic is gone. While at it, he is attacked by and killed by the same bear Snow and Rose sheltered in winter.

After killing the dwarf, the bear changes into his real form - a human prince - and vows to marry Snow, while Rose marries his brother. Both the sisters and the prince tell their mother and father, respectively, about the vow. Both parents disapprove for their own reasons. At night, Snow and Rose's mother (who is revealed to be a witch) secretly meets with the king, who orders her to kill Snow so that his son's vow can be broken without any consequence. Snow's mother then fakes her daughter's death and arranges for her to live with her aunt. Her aunt is widowed queen of a distant land (Snow's mother helped her to achieve this position). Years pass and Snow starts to forget her childhood.

Snow White and Prince Charming

She is struck by the jealousy of her aunt who is enraged by the fact that Snow is lovelier than her. The queen orders a hunter to kill Snow. The hunter spares her instead and she flees into the forest. There, Snow finds a cottage that is the home of seven wicked sons of the dwarf Snow saved so many times in her childhood. Unlike in the fairytale, the dwarfs treat her badly and turn her into their slave, abusing her physically and sexually for months. When the queen learns that Snow is alive, she disguises herself as an old woman and visits Snow while the dwarfs are away, giving her a poisoned apple. Snow eats it and falls into a coma. When the dwarfs arrive, they realize that Snow is dead and get rid of her by throwing her out into the woods. That's when Prince Charming appeared on the scene, finding Snow abandoned and saves her.

Snow married Charming and the two were happy for a time. He promised her anything she desired as a wedding gift; to his surprise, she asked him for fencing lessons. Feeling that this was inappropriate for a woman, particularly a noble one, Charming attempted to dissuade her, but she remained resolute and he agreed. Time passed and Snow, despite her own feeling that she would never improve, gradually did so. It was at about that time that the first dwarf corpse was discovered, roughly hacked to death. Realizing that the King of the Dwarf Kingdom located under their own would want to know what happened to his subject, Charming ordered an investigation. A week later a second body was located; stabbed rather than hacked. In the meantime, Snow's lessons continued, and she frequently took long rides through the countryside alone.

By the time the fourth body was located, the King of the Dwarf Kingdom was becoming increasingly angry at the death of his subjects in the upper world. He threatened the possibility of war between the kingdoms if the perpetrator was not located swiftly. From him, Charming learned that the four dead were brothers who shared with a number of other brothers, a 'diversion cabin' deep within the woods, where the dwarves could briefly visit the upper world and indulge in certain vices in private, including the abduction of the occasional local peasant girl. Snow, in the meantime, told her husband that she wished to discontinue their lessons; claiming that she'd progressed as far as she felt she was likely to.

Facing the increasing possibility of war, Charming increased his efforts. Finally, deep in the woods, the burned-out remains of a cabin was discovered. Inside were the bodies of three dwarves, the last of the brothers, each killed with a single sword thrust to the heart. The cabin had then been burned in an attempt to destroy the evidence. Charming went immediately to the jail, where he instructed the warden to execute the most notorious villain incarcerated therein. Charming had the head of the dead man delivered to the Dwarf King, along with a faked confession to the murders.

Charming then had a talk with his wife, noting the interesting coincidence that the murderer showed greater proficiency in swordsmanship with each kill; much as Snow's ability with a sword had increased every night she and her husband practiced. He asked about the cottage that he'd found her in, apparently the same one that was found burnt out, and how she'd told him that she lived there alone. She said it was unsurprising that others had moved in after she left. Charming was tempted to continue further, to ask if Snow had known the dead dwarves, but elected not to, noting only that everybody had secrets best kept unsaid. Charming then suggested that Snow might like to invite Rose Red to live with them, observing that she presumably no longer needed to take her long rides alone.

Snow asked Rose to come and live with them, but the damage to their relationship was already done. Rose believed that Snow was part of her mother's conspiracy in faking her death and felt abandoned and completely betrayed by her sister. Though had Rose learned the whole story, she'd had realized Snow was not to blame in any of this. To punish Snow, Rose seduced and slept with Charming (which, much to her surprise, took a lot of time and effort, like a "military operation", despite "his reputation"), ruining the marriage and driving a wedge between the two sisters that seemed insurmountable. Devastated, Snow divorced Charming. Her movements after that point are unclear, although it seems that she remained part of the nobility.

Snow White Power 2: White Power Harder
right-aligned image


Leaving her Homeland

Where Snow was when the Adversary's forces began their systematic assault on the Homelands is unknown. What is known is that she and Rose left their home and journeyed to a distant land, searching for a legendary witch's cave which supposedly contained a passage leading to a distant world that would serve as a refuge. Along the way they came across the burned down gingerbread cottage of a certain witch (of Hansel and Gretel fame), whose charred, skeletal body clung to life within her oven. Taking pity on her, Rose Red (and a reluctant Snow White) nursed the witch back to health and then took her with them on their journey. Unfortunately, the Adversary's troops were aware of the approximate location of the fabled cave and had assigned troops to apprehend anyone trying to escape through it. The pair were captured (and subsequently separated from Frau Totenkinder) and placed in a chain gang, destined to be interrogated for any information useful to the Adversary, then executed.

Fortunately for them, the chain gang was being covertly observed by the Big Bad Wolf, who had appointed himself as the unofficial guardian of the witch's cave (the witch being long gone) and who was the only one who knew its precise location. He attacked the guards, slaughtering them all with ease. While many of the terrified prisoners attempted to flee, Snow and Rose faced the newcomer, Snow taking up a nearby sword to defend herself with. Apparently amused by their defiance, the Wolf explained that he had no intention of eating them and that he found much more amusement in frustrating the Adversary by helping Fables reach safety. His only condition was that he must be allowed to take a small taste of each of them, to ensure that none of them were agents of the enemy trying to sneak through to spy on the fugitive Fables. Coming to the conclusion that she had little choice but to trust him, Snow was the first to allow the Wolf to taste her flesh. Passing the test, Snow, Rose and their fellow prisoners were escorted to the cave and escaped through into the mundane world, arriving in approximately the year 1610.

Governing Fabletown

Snow was part of the Fabletown government from the moment the small community was set up in New York, then known as New Amsterdam. Because of their previous meeting, two hundred years earlier, it was Snow who was sent to Carpathia to ask the Big Bad Wolf to join them, carrying the lycanthropy-stained knife that would give him the ability to shapeshift and come to adopt the persona of Bigby Wolf. She was also sent as an envoy to the Arabian Fables where she found herself having to keep the Sultan amused with various tales. Snow gradually rose up through the ranks of government, until she became assistant to deputy mayor Ichabod Crane. When Crane resigned in the mid-1990s after 115 years in the job, facing accusations of embezzlement and sexually harassing Snow, she took over as deputy mayor, becoming largely responsible for the day-to-day running of the community.

Snow dealt with numerous incidents during her relatively short tenure as deputy mayor. Among these were an attempted rebellion by the non-human Fables up at the Farm facility, who, angered by their enforced confinement, revolted, intending to assault the Homelands using mundane weaponry adapted for their own use. Snow successfully stopped the revolt, but was shot in the head by Goldilocks. Her popularity as a Fable saved her, but she was in a coma for six weeks, and walks with a cane to this day. The situation did, however, have the effect of finally clearing the air between her and Rose Red. She appointed Rose as the new administrator for the Farm, a position that the former party girl found herself to be unexpectedly good at, to the point where she even enjoyed it. Snow also masterminded the defense of Fabletown during the attack by the Adversary's wooden soldiers.

Personality

Initially, she was considered to be something of an "ice queen". She was cold and calculating and despite serving as deputy mayor, she was not very informed as to the opinions and feelings of her fellow Fables, as a side effect she can seem dense at times. For example, she was completely unaware of the seditious and revolutionary feelings of the Farm. Another kink in her personality was that she is not above using her power and position for her own ends; this often lead to negative repercussions. For example, when she forcibly inserts herself into Bigby's investigation, it causes him to label her as a suspect. She marries Prince Charming to avenge herself and almost causes a war between his kingdom and the dwarves'. Her personality, however, masks the fact that she was terribly lonely. After many centuries, she was still angry at the loss of her marriage, and, consequently, she found herself resenting those in working relationships, particularly Beauty, with her successful multi-century marriage to Beast. As a former aristocrat, Snow had a tendency to associate love and happiness with handsome princes, fairy-tale castles and the trappings of high society. It took her a long time to realize that that really did not matter to her at all. Initially, she rebuffs Bigby's affections but, eventually comes to terms with them. Furthermore, after the Revolution, she is able to patch things up with Rose Red and her personality begins to soften considerably. In addition to that, Snow showed a strong emotional dependence on Bigby when he left. Before she and Bigby became romantically interested in each other, she tended to be insecure with her life; she and Bigby have a deeply caring and loving relationship. Living with Bigby and their children in the house built for them on Bigby's land, Snow, at last, appears to be happy. She is also one of the most responsible, intelligent, and diligent Fables, while also the most sarcastic, to top it all off she is the only ex-wife of Prince Charming who has children.
