    Raven Queen
"Conjuring my own destiny"
Voiced by: Erin Fitzgerald.

Daughter of the Evil Queen. The other focal character and the Rebel to Apple's Royal. Unhappy with being tagged as a villain just for being born from one, Raven decides the unthinkable: renounce her legacy and write her life as she chooses.

  • Adorkable: Not usually, but she does have moments of awkward cuteness. In "Cupid Comes Clean...Kinda" her recently-developed crush on Dexter causes her to do things like mess up a potion because she was distracted from gazing at him dreamily.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: She has dark magic but is actually a good person. The books also stated that when she tries to use her magic with good intentions in her mind, this backfires badly. (But it seems that this aspect of her powers has gone away after she refused to sign the book on Legacy Day.)
  • Batman Gambit: She pulls off one in Dragon Games. By pretending to return to her mother's side, she gets Faybelle angry enough to turn on the Evil Queen and help recapture her. Which is what Raven wanted from the start.
  • Blessed With Suck: She possesses some impressive magic ability, but, unfortunately, can only perform black magic. Her attempts at good magic only backfire. As a child, she was able to use her magic for good, but one day it suddenly changed on her. After she defaces the Storybook of Legends, she is able to use her magic for whatever she wants again, thanks partially to getting her hands on some banned books in a website game storyline.
  • Character Development: At the start of the series Raven refuses her destiny because she sees nothing good about it, but as the series goes on we see that by denying it she is also denying herself. Thinking that if she accepted even a piece of it, like her powers, she would not be able to stop herself from becoming a full copy of her mother. Slowly, but surely she comes to understand that its not the destiny or powers that made her mother so evil but the person underneath, and that Raven can accept herself.
  • Cool Loser: In some extent, at least in the beginning. However, later webisodes show her casually interacting with classmates, and she's become friends with the more popular students like Apple and Briar.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Purple hair and eyes.
  • Daddy's Girl: Established as this in the books, probably because her dad is literally The Good King and her mother is trapped in a mirror for her crimes.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Not that anyone will believe her.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She tends to make rather sarcastic remarks, usually toward Apple.
  • Detect Evil: Everyone seems to have it permanently on when they're around her.
  • The Dreaded:
    • Everyone knows she's meant to be the next Evil Queen, and as she's grown older and an evil aura surrounds her, they've gone from picking on her for it to suddenly running away in fear. Although no one seems to actually hate her; they just accept her role as a villainess as her lot in life.
    • She's The Dreaded for another reason. Headmaster Grimm firmly believes that not carrying out the fairy tales as they are told risks erasing them and possibly the entire fantasy world from existence; if he's right, Raven's refusal would be far worse than just going along with the "poison Apple" bit.
  • Driven by Envy: She tries to not become this, like her mother. Whenever she's admiring Apple's physical perfection, she has to snap herself out of it, reminding that comparing herself to Snow White was what drive her mother into evil.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side:
    • While preparing for Legacy Day in the book series, she briefly understands why her mom said Evil Feels Good and almost accepts her destiny. It's only talking to Dexter that snaps her out of it.
    • When Raven gains her full power by signing the book in animated series, she nearly kills Courtly Jester due to the effect on her mind.
  • Fatal Flaw: As a girl who follows her heart, Raven is prone to impulsiveness and choosing gut feelings over reason.
  • Foil:
    • Raven is Apple's complete opposite, artistic and somewhat cynical to Apple's book smarts and optimistic attitude. Raven would rather have a little chaos and thinking on the fly where Apple would prefer order and a well thought out plan. Becomes a plot point starting in season three as the two butt heads on what should and shouldn't go into the Year Book.
    • The trope also comes into play with the girls' Character Development. Raven starts the series completely against her destiny and thoroughly believes there is no good reason to ever accept it, a true Rebel. But as the series has gone on, Raven is shown a few times that not only can destiny not be denied, those she loves and care about depend on her accepting it. She has gone from being a Rebel, to learning what it means to be a Royal.
    • This is even shown in the pairs' BFFs. Both of Apple's friends make more sense as Rebels due to their personal desires, while Raven's make more sense as Royals due their desire to embrace their destinies.
  • Freaky Fashion, Mild Mind: Raven definitely has the look of a dark enchantress down, to the point that she looks like she could be a part of sister franchise Monster High, but she is one of the most normal and well-adjusted characters personality wise.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Has purple as her theme color.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Her mother is quite infamous, and she suffers for it.
  • Gorgeous Garment Generation: An accidental outburst of magic from Raven creates Blondie's Just Sweet costume.
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: Her fashion style is quite gothy and she can use dark magic.
  • Growing Up Sucks: She used to have benign magic when she was a child, but one day it flipped on her and now she's only able to use dark magic.
  • High Collar of Doom: She wears a white feather cape with a high collar, in a way indicating that she's not the villain she's made to appear to be.
  • I Am Not My Mother: She's trying to convince others of this, but most of them won't hear of it. This is later changed in the animated series as her new control of her powers have begun to make others see she's not evil.
  • In the Blood: One reason people fear Raven is that she has the charisma and hot temper of her mother- they both want the world to change, and aren't shy about showing it.
  • Irony: She doesn't want to accept her legacy and sign the Storybook of Legends. In Way too Wonderland, she had no other option than to sign the real book. The one that didn't want to was the first, and for now only, one to accept her destiny.
  • Lady of Black Magic: Although she's not evil she has the dark and elegant fashion of an Evil Sorceress, is usually calm and composed, and can use black magic, which becomes much more powerful when she signs the Storybook of Legends to defeat Courtly Jester.
  • Licked by the Dog: In spite of everyone treating her as if she were a nefarious Evil Sorceress, non-sapient woodland critters are sometimes shown going up to her as if she were a Princess Classic. Of course, she's more receptive to the positive attention than most characters on the receiving end of this trope, and even scratches a little bird under its chin. This is further shown as she is later able to mimic Apple's talent to call birds to assist her, though her birds are ravens, instead of Apple's pretty doves.
  • Magic Mirror: She can travel through them.
  • Multicolored Hair: Her hair is black and purple.
  • Nice Girl: She's helpful, kind, and resents her destiny because she genuinely doesn't want to hurt anyone. Too bad everyone doesn't see that and still expects her to be the next Evil Queen.
  • Perky Goth: Her style is very gothic, although "perky" may not be quite the word for it.
  • Power Incontinence: She doesn't have the best hold on her magic, and often winds up causing bad things to happen completely by accident.
  • Purple Is the New Black: Most of her hair and outfit is dark purple.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her magic glows in purple.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Although only a few streaks of her hair are black.
  • Screw Destiny: She just doesn't want to be a villainess. Considering what she sees on Legacy Day, it's not hard to understand why.
  • Secret Keeper: She helps Cerise keep her secret about her father from the others and keeps Kitty from revealing it.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: In the book series, Raven figures out on her own that Hunter and Ashlynn are dating but says nothing.
  • Ship Tease: With Dexter Charming, who has a big crush on her that she's started reciprocating. They're even getting a doll pack together. Now that they have had a date it's almost to the point of Official Couple.
  • Spikes of Villainy: She has a few accessories with them, despite rejecting her role.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Raven's mother is frequently described as an older version of her, and she worries that this is a sign of Generation Xerox.
  • Time Stands Still: After refusing her destiny on Legacy Day, Raven's desire to make the ensuing chaos stop causes her powers to (accidentally, of course,) freeze everyone in place. It still happens sometimes, but only whenever she is badly stressed out and loses her temper. Fortunately, it appears fairly easy for Raven to reverse the effects.
  • Villainous Widow's Peak: Prominent in all Raven's hairstyles, fitting with her evil sorceress theme.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Downplayed as a part of her Odd Friendship with Apple. See her entry above.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In Thronecoming, when she called out Apple for being self-centred, Apple calls her out for being self-centred too, because Raven's refusal of villainy puts every story and the order of Ever After at risk.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: After the events of Dragon Games, Raven is shocked to find out that her mother isn't angry at her defeat, in-fact quite the opposite. It turns out that because Raven used cunning manipulation and raw power to defeat her mother, The Queen sees this a definite proof that Raven will one day fall into her footsteps. She is practically gushing with joy as she informs Raven of this.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is several shades of purple.

    Madeline "Maddie" Hatter
"Mischief and madness"
Voiced by: Cindy Robinson.

Daughter of the Mad Hatter and Raven's best friend. She seems perfectly suited to being the next Mad Hatter, but is a Rebel because she doesn't believe that everyone should be forced to follow their parents' stories.

  • Achievements in Ignorance: She can do anything if she doesn't know it's impossible.
  • Bag of Holding: Her tiny little "Hat of Many Things," from which she pulls out an entire tea set at a minute's notice - including a pot full of steaming hot tea and the tea table.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Although she's often subject to The Cuckoolander Was Right.
  • Daddy's Girl: She is more than eager to follow in the footsteps of "dear ol' dad" and is shown to have a great relationship with him in the book series, where she helps him part-time in his Tea Shoppe. Highlighted again in A Wonderlandiful World when her dad is captured by the Jabberwock while trying to protect Maddie from it.
  • Deus ex Machina: Can converse with narrators (who have apparent control over space and time), and uses it to forward the plot.
  • Eat Dirt, Cheap: Eats a rock in The Storybook of Legends with no ill side effects.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer:
    • She's the only one (besides Kitty) aware of the fact that there are narrators, and can hear them both. She even converses with them.
    • She actually becomes the narrator in A Wonderlandiful World after the regular one is affected by the jabberwocky's magic.
    • Brooke Page frequently tries to take of advantage of this in the specials in order to help Maddie and her friends out of bad situations.
    • She mentions the existence of Monster High during "Dragon Games".
  • Insult Backfire: In Maddie-in-Chief:
    Blondie: Why would you run against Apple? Are you mad?
    Maddie: Why, yes, thank you for noticing.
  • Large Ham: She can be.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Raven sometimes leans on Maddie when she is starting to feel down or upset over all the trouble she has caused. In reverse, Maddie misses Wonderland very much, but is glad she got to meet Raven.
  • Mad Hatter: Naturally, as a Wonderland native and daughter of the man himself, Maddie rejoices in madness and silliness.
  • Mad Oracle: Her Magic Touch is listed to be seeing the future. And she is mad.
  • Magic Skirt: When Maddie hangs upside-down, her dress remains downward, if not a bit flattened.
  • Meaningful Name: Her Punny Name aside, Madeline is one letter off from madeleine, a French cake usually served with tea.
  • Morality Pet: In A Wonderlandiful World she acts as this for Lizzie and Kitty, bringing out the twos more noble traits.
  • Multicolored Hair: Teal and reddish purple - a combination she pulls off better than most probably could.
  • Pull a Rabbit out of My Hat: In her bio, she claims to have a White Rabbit in her hat... somewhere.
  • Quirky Curls
  • Reality Warper: As long as she doesn't know it's impossible, she can do anything.
  • Seers: She has precognition, according to her diary. In chapter 1, she mentions having a vision concerning the Magic Mirror in which the Evil Queen is trapped.
  • Signature Laugh: Her "Wa-ha-ha-ha!" guffaw.
  • Smarter Than You Look: She may be a bit of an oddball, but she knows when to take advantage of the narrators (such as learning the information Bunny and Alistair are researching by asking Brooke in Way Too Wonderland), and she initially picks up on Jackie's sarcasm in "No Business like Snow Business", but she's reassured when Jackie says she was genuine.
  • Student Council President: Becomes a candidate for the position in the appropriately-titled "Maddie-in-Chief" with the intent of, for once, having someone other than Apple in the position. By the end of the webisode, she and Apple become co-presidents of the student council.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Tea and crumpets, naturally.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is streaked light blue and purple.

    Hunter Huntsman
"Truth, Justice & The Woodland Way"
Voiced by: Grant George.

The latest in the line of heroic Fairy Tale Hunters. Despite his love to do heroic deeds, he's a Rebel because he's a hunter who loathes hunting and hurting animals. Secretly in a relationship with Ashlynn Ella, a Royal, until they made their relationship public in the "True Hearts Day" special.

     Cerise Hood
"Cloaked in mystery"
Voiced by: Rena Strober (credited as Rena S. Mandel).

Daughter of Red Riding Hood. She's hiding a secret: a "Big Bad" secret.

  • Ambiguously Brown: She's darker than Raven, but lighter than Cedar. Parts of the fandom likes to think that she's Native American.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Downplayed. Her sister Ramona seems to view her as this for her "taking this 'under-the-hood' thing too far" and possibly being the one who got her into reform school. Ramona is also this to Cerise. That said, the two seem to have fun with their rivalry sometimes and do genuinely care about each other.
  • Big Eater: Cerise can really pack in the meat.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In Season Two's web episode "Cerise's Picnic Panic".
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Spending more time with Raven and the rest of the Rebels allow her to be more open and even socialize with others more easily. Heck, she even starts to show more wolf-like characteristics around pretty much anyone.
  • Demoted to Extra: She got much less focus after The Cat Who Cried Wolf, much to the fandom's frustration. There are still webisodes where she plays a prominent role, but usually she has cameos. This could be slightly justified by the fact that, now that the audience knows her secret about her parentage and wolfish traits, a major portion of her plotline is somewhat resolved.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Her lycanthropy, specifically her trying to keep it a secret, is sometimes treated like closet homosexuality.
  • Emerging from the Shadows: More like "merging with the shadows".
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She's the result of Red Riding Hood marrying her Big Bad Wolf.
  • Human Mom, Non-Human Dad: Her mom is Red Riding Hood, and her dad is the Big Bad Wolf.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Subverted. She's actually proud of who she is; she just wished to be able to howl it to the world.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: After spending most of her life in the shadows, she hopes that the Rebel movement will allow her to break out of that shell and make friends.
  • Ice Queen: Downplayed. She's not rude or dismissive, but it's noted that she tends to keep to herself and avoids people, which is understandable, considering her heritage.
  • In the Hood: It's right there in her name. Of course, she has a more practical reason to wear it than tradition.
  • Invisibility Cloak: Her hood has the ability to make Cerise blend in to the shadows.
  • Meaningful Name: "Cerise" means "cherry red", making her name an indirect form of "Little Red Riding Hood".
  • Mood Ring Eyes: Her eyes turn yellow whenever her wolf side shows.
  • My Instincts Are Showing: Though she keeps her ears hidden, she still growls when she's angry and really enjoys meat.
  • Nom de Mom: She goes by her mother's last name, Hood, instead of her dad's last name, Badwolf, which her sister Ramona goes by.
  • The Nose Knows: Has an excellent sense of smell, which she even uses to help lead a group of students to the basement in the webisode 'Rosabella and the Beasts'. Obviously this is due to her wolf heritage.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: She has a rather... interesting reaction to Daring's floodlight-grade smile, due to her dad being the Big Bad Wolf.
  • Pretty in Mink: During formal occasions, such as Legacy Day and Thronecoming, Cerise wears a hood trimmed with fur.
  • Properly Paranoid: Cerise is extremely cautious and quickly gets unsettled and violent whenever there's a threat of her family's secret being revealed. Given the importance that the land of Ever After gives in following the script and how her parents deviated quite a lot from the script, it's understandable.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Has a somewhat rocky relationship with her sister, Ramona, for differing opinions on keeping their family secret. It's also implied by Blondie that Cerise may or may not have been the one to get Ramona into reform school.
  • Skunk Stripe: She gets it from her father, who has more streaks to the point of Multicolored Hair.
  • Super Senses: She got them from her dad's side.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Cerise is an athlete with a love for meat who's not afraid to get down and dirty, so she's certainly a tomboy compared to the rest of the girls. However, she still wears heels and a skirt in most of her outfits, though she consistently has a less 'girly' color scheme than most of the others.
  • Super Speed: She can run faster than most people and her favorite class is cross-country running.
  • Unusual Ears: Her ears are furry and pointed, though she keeps them hidden under her hood.

    Cedar Wood
"Honest to goodness"
Voiced by: Jonquil Goode.

Daughter of Pinocchio. Magically incapable of lying before the start of her story, she's not the best person to trust your secrets but you can be sure that she'll always be true, no matter what. She's one of the few Rebels that are looking up to her legacy, because she'll be able to finally lie.

  • Ambiguously Brown: She's made of wood, further confusing things. As of "A Wonderlandiful World" it is confirmed she is black.
  • Brutal Honesty: Since she can only tell the truth, she sometimes can be very blunt.
  • Camera Fiend: Throughout the yearbook episodes in chapter 3, Cedar is mostly seen taking pictures with her MirrorPad.
  • Cannot Tell a Lie: Similar to her father, only she can't lie outright. She'll only be able to lie when she begins her story.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: In the True Heart's Day special, she told aloud in a coffee shop that Ashlynn and Hunter were secretly dating. Cupid also have to make a plan so Cedar wouldn't speak about the secret dance for the festivity that Headmaster Grimm banned.
  • Catch Phrase: "Wait a splinter..."
  • Celibate Heroine: She has no interest in having a boyfriend, according to her profile. This makes sense, since her father's story was about family and behavior, not romance.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The web episode The Beautiful Truth focuses in her and how she calls out the pageant for celebrating vanity and shallow beauty. She's also a main character in the third book along with the Wonderlandians.
  • Informed Attribute: While the books and supplementary materials make reference to Cedar having a love of art, this has yet to be seen in any of the webisodes.
  • Irony: Cedar, the puppet girl, is a a talented ventriloquist. Doubly ironic is the fact that her puppet Splinter can only lie.
  • Meganekko: Spends most of the Thronecoming special wearing her inherited pair of glasses that magically expose falsehoods.
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: Perhaps has a very mild case, though she's expected to get a full-blown one in the future- that is her destiny, after all. She doesn't seem to mind being a puppet, but not being able to lie really bothers her, and she has wondered about what things will be like for her when she's a real girl.
  • Speech Impediment: A mild case as she has a noticeably nasal voice. Possibly explained as her inability to lie keeps her nose from growing.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: She can float since she's made out of magic wood, and she doesn't breathe anyways.

    C. A. (Chariclo Arganthone) Cupid
"Loves a happily ever after"
Voiced by: Erin Fitzgerald.

Adoptive daughter of Eros/Cupid, God of Love from Greek Mythology. A transfer student from Monster High. Like Maddie, she's a Rebel because she believes in people following their hearts and if the Rebels are unhappy with their destinies, she's more than pleased to help them find their hearts' true desires.

  • Call-Back: Her signature look has a few references to her Monster High design.
    • Her lips are done in the doll style, but with two shades of pink to look more subtle.
    • Her headband mimics the heart-shaped section of twisted hair on the older Cupid.
    • Her shoes have pink hearts, referencing the pink heart links on the MH Cupid's shoes.
    • The heels of her shoes are arrows, since the MH Cupid's heels were bows.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: She's in charge of teenage love, but she's a terrible shot, and winds up causing as many problems as she solves. Young love is notorious for being messy and confusing.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: A very subtle example, but the highlights in her blue eyes are shaped like hearts, which is held over from her MH design. The animators seem to forget this detail every so often, however.
  • Flight: The books and webisodes differ on this: in the books Cupid can fly, but she is never seen doing so in the webisodes.
  • Irony: In spite of being the daughter of the God of Love, she has horrific luck with her own love life and she also has horrific aim.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Despite her feelings for Dexter, she gives him sound advice on how to woo Raven. And in "Cupid Comes Clean...Kinda" she tries to hook them up when she sees Raven has developed a crush back on him.
  • Love Goddess: Being the daughter of Eros, despite her amateurish skills, she technically DOES have the powers, advantages, and capabilities required to be one. Also, if she chooses to follow in his footsteps, she technically WILL become one.
  • Neutral No Longer: Though promotional material and the opening credits indicated early on that she'd be a Rebel eventually, she only officially joins the faction on Legacy Day when she sees what's at stake for everyone and that the other students need help with more than just their love lives.
  • Nice Girl: One of the nicest at Ever After High. Cupid genuinely wants to help her peers out, even if doing so puts her in a worse position.
  • No Indoor Voice: Cupid is highly excitable and often shouts her enthusiasm, much to the detriment of pretty much everyone.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her clothes and hair are pink all over.
  • Plot Allergy: The Heart Struck episode reveals she's allergic to pollen, and even needs an inhalator. Because of this, she loses her arrows, causing the whole episode's trouble.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: A selfless and incredibly sweet romantic who has bubblegum pink hair.
  • Ship Tease: Her introductory episode (to this series, that is) reveals that she has a big crush on Dex. Given his own rather obvious crush on Raven, it's unknown if anything will come of this.
    • She continues having a big crush on him, but also supports him getting with Raven.
  • Winged Humanoid: Of course. She is specifically referred to as a cherub in the webisode 'Heartstruck'.
  • You Don't Look Like You: C.A. Cupid was reassigned to Book End by orders from Mount Olympus... which somehow gave her longer hair and feathery wings. Justified, as her original look probably wouldn't have meshed well with her new universe.

    Poppy O'Hair
Voiced by: Lindsay Ames

Daughter of Rapunzel, and Holly's twin sister, she might be the only Ever After High's student without a legacy to follow. Works as a hairdresser at the Tower Salon.

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: She thinks Sparrow Hood is cute, but recognizes he would be more charming if he wasn't so arrogant.
  • Cursed With Awesome: Her hair grows very fast, so Poppy has to constantly cut it and dye the roots of her violet half. However, "Rapunzel's hair" is extremely valuable and she earns quite a lot for it.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Briefly seen during part 2 of the True Hearts Day special, with a slightly different look.
  • The Fashionista: She loves to style princesses, from their hair to their outfits.
  • The Klutz: Her early attempts at ice-skating the 'Fairest on Ice' webisode are far from graceful. It's only once she decides to follow Holly's advice not to be afraid that she skates gracefully.
  • Missed the Call: Due to being the younger twin, Poppy is the one of the few students without a legacy.
  • Multicolored Hair: Half of her hair is dyed purple.
  • Neutral No Longer: Her web episode's debut is about her choosing to not associate with neither the Royals nor the Rebels, as she sees the better of both worlds and decides to be a "Roybel". But she finally chooses to be a Rebel in O'Hair Split Ends when she founds out she's actually the older twin and the role of Rapunzel is hers, but she chooses to give it to her sister who actually wants it, in order to not be tied down by a legacy.
  • Spare to the Throne: Not intentionally, but because they're twins. Holly is set to inherit their mother's story, leaving Poppy without a story to follow. This is changed to intentionally when they find out that Poppy is the older twin and they decided to keep this a secret.
  • Theme Twin Naming: She and her sister are named after flowers and, furthermore, each name has a double letter.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Compared to Holly, Poppy is the more artsy and adventurous twin. She even has Princessology as her least favourite class, because it teaches how to be a prim and proper princess. That being said, Poppy's love of style and fashion make her somewhat girly as well, if not as classically so as any of her peers.

Voiced by: Malcolm Danare.

Son of the Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk. He's labelled as a Rebel because he doesn't feel like being a scary giant and he's actually a mellow, nice guy.

  • Achilles' Heel: A ticklish pinkie toe, which is, apparently, the case of all giants.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: A fact we know because of the fact that he's never been seen above his feet.
  • The Faceless: His face has never been shown so far.
  • Gentle Giant: He's only been polite so far, and seems very meek to boot.
  • Ironic Name: Easily the largest student in campus, by virtue of being... well, a giant.

    Ginger Breadhouse
Voiced by: Salli Saffioti

Daughter of the Candy Witch from Hansel and Gretel. She is unhappy with her legacy, and would much rather be a pastry chef.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Ginger has few friends since everybody is convinced that she's just like her mom.
  • Childhood Friends: In Ginger's profile and diary, her relationship with Cerise Hood is stated to be this, as they both grew up in the Dark Forest. Whether or not Ginger knows about the Hood family's "Big Bag" Secret is unknown, but unlikely.
  • Creating Life Is Unforeseen: Ginger created her pet fish Jelly by accident when she used a cooking spell on a gummy fish as part of an extra-credit assignment.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Actually a Dark-Skinned Pinkhead.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She is mentioned quite a bit in the books, especially when Raven goes to visit her mother in The Unfairest of Them All.
  • Facial Markings: Has hot pink dots above her eyebrows, and skin tone dots under her eyes that may or may not just be freckles.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Wears her hair in low pigtails, though she switches to a ponytail when she's baking.
  • I Am Not My Mother: She has troubles proving that she doesn't eat children. Raven can relate and helps her prove it.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: In Spell and Kiss, she has a chance to tell Hopper that she was the one who kissed him and thus reverted his frog wish. It would've revealed her big crush on him because Ginger was told that true love's kiss was supposedly stronger than a princess' kiss—and she isn't a princess. She decided not to in the end because of Hopper's crush on Briar.
  • Meganekko: Wears round glasses with pink frames.
  • Nice Girl: Ginger is always generous, friendly and optimistic. She is never seen getting angry with anybody, even when she has every right to be.
  • Odd Friendship: Ginger and Faybelle Thorn grew up together but they aren't particularly close. Still, they talk on occasion.
  • Punny Name: An obvious pun on "gingerbread house".
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has hot pink hair and she's as sweet as the baked goods she makes.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's a very soft-spoken girl and will not tell someone if they hurt her feelings.
  • Sweet Baker: She's a sweet natured girl who loves to bake. Unfortunately, most people think she's using her treats to lure people to their doom.
  • Supreme Chef: Loves to bake and is quite good at it.
  • Tastes Like Friendship: Her web episode debut involves her trying to invoke this, by leaving gift boxes with homemade cookies outside everyone's dorm in hopes of making friends.
  • Trapped in Another World: After falling down a well in Spring Unsprung, Ginger spends most of the special in Wonderland.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Even after they spread cruel rumours about her, Ginger is perfectly happy to give Helga and Gus Crumb a platter of her cupcakes.
  • Unrequited Love: She has a huge crush on Hopper, who himself has trouble with his own love for Briar.

    Darling Charming
Voiced by: Marieve Herington

The younger sister of Daring, and Dexter's twin. Her destiny is supposed to be a generic damsel-in-distress waiting for a prince to rescue her, but secretly she'd rather be the one doing the rescuing.

  • Ambiguously Bi: Darling claims to have an interest in boys in her profile, but the moment in Dragon Games when she lifts Apple's curse with a Kiss of Life after Daring, Apple's supposed Prince Charming, wasn't able to points her sexuality in this territory.
  • All Girls Like Ponies: Played with. Darling's stallion, Sir Gallopad, reflects her knightly traits rather than femininity.
  • Battle Ballgown: Darling's everyday dress, with a shoulder piece that looks like a breastplate, and chain mail-like jewelry.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Even when she decides to not brush her hair, it still looks perfect.
  • Beauty Mark: Has one on the corner of her right eye, which is oddly absent in the animated series.
  • Beehive Hairdo: Her hair is styled to look like the pouffe hairdo, a la Marie Antoinette
  • Bullet Time: When she flips her hair, it literally causes time to slow down around her.
  • Damsel out of Distress: What she wants to be.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: If you have never read the books, the reveal at the end of Spring Unsprung will be a complete mystery.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Though this is because of her always impersonating one of her brothers or some other male character during her heroics
  • Girl in the Tower: What she's supposed to be.
  • Knight Errant: Implied to be the reason behind Darling's masquerade as the White Knight in Wonderland.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: What she wants to be. She proves herself well worthy of this role with repeated heroism, indicating that she's really not supposed to be the Distressed Damsel at all.
  • Multicolored Hair: Platinum blonde with baby blue streaks.
  • Samus Is a Girl: According to her profile, Darling is infamous for disguising herself in armour to attend Heroes' classes. At the end of Spring Unsprung, it is revealed that Darling is, or more likely has been impersonating, Wonderland's White Knight.
  • The Reveal:
    • Reveals herself to be the White Knight to most of the student body in Way Too Wonderland, Daring is so shocked he doesn't even care his hair got messed up, again.
    • And again, when Apple is Cursed. Daring, her destined prince is unable to save her, but Darling's mouth-to-mouth does, heavily implying that she is Apple's destiny, not Daring.
  • Secret Keeper: Dexter is one for her - he's the only one who knows how strong she really is - and she becomes one for Charity when she was hiding from the family ball all day.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: She can't even go outside on her balcony in the morning without attracting suitors asking to marry her.
  • Super Strength: Can easily carry her brother Dexter around.
  • Tomboy Princess: Gets more excited about shining armour than pretty dresses.

    Rosabella Beauty

The daughter of Beauty and the Beast, and Briar Beauty's first cousin. She is a classic Rebel with a cause. Or many, many causes.

  • Aura Vision: Rosabella's "Magic Touch" is a form of this, allowing her to see a person's true self and feelings. In her diary she mentions seeing people with colored auras (for instance, Apple's is an encouraging golden-orange).
  • Badass Bookworm: Hunts down and calls out Faybelle Thorn, a dark fairy, on imprisoning animals to serve her detention. She was backed up by numerous allies, however.
  • Bookworm: One of the things Rosabella considers great about going to EAH is having free range of the enormous library. This can call a heroine from a different retelling of her family's story to mind.
  • Determinator: Dedicated to the cause of equal rights for beasts. Her diary, for instance, showcases her determination to allow an ogre student who was unjustly expelled back into school.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Besides Ashlynn, Rosabella demonstrates this trait the best out of all characters, caring for any creature regardless of their appearance or reputation.
  • Friend to Bugs: Most likely, as her pet is a butterfly named Adelita.
  • Nice Girl: Sweet and compassionate, and willing to stand up for others.
  • Meganekko: She is noticeably the only princess who wears glassesnote .
  • Multicolored Hair: Has several red streaks in her otherwise brown hair.
  • Pretty in Mink: Her dress has a brown (faux) fur lapel, a homage to her father.
  • Soapbox Sadie: Rosabella is the resident activist for the equal rights of nonhuman creatures. Unlike most examples of this trope, however, she's not obnoxious about it.
  • Something About a Rose: While not to the extent of Briar, Rosabella does have a distinct rose motif.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks almost exactly like Briar with glasses and a different hairstyle.

    Sparrow Hood
Voiced by: Todd Haberkorn.

Son of Robin Hood, Sparrow is an indie rock guitarist who has several demos out on the Mirror-Net. Like Hunter, he hangs out in the forests surrounding the school.

  • Cool Hat: With a feather in it, just like his old man.
  • Dirty Coward: In the Thronecoming special, when the odds are clearly against EAH's bookball team, Sparrow immediately runs and hides.
  • Dreadful Musician: Not "dreadful" exactly, but very loud...and incessant. His guitar playing is better than his singing, though.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: As seen in the diaries - When Ashlynn's ring goes missing it's because he had one of his henchmen steal it off her hands for the sole purpose of returning it and trying to get a date.
    • Also in Next Top Villain where he steals the win from Duchess at the last minute by causing Lizzie's horse to throw her off. Although it's odd how he just happened to set it up so that Duchess' good deed that made her flunk the assignment also let her make up with her friend...
  • Just Like Robin Hood: Subverted; he should be this but he prefers keeping what he steals. It's one of the reasons Headmaster Grimm puts him in General Villainy, he thinks he has potential because he doesn't use his thievery skills for good like his father did.
  • Magic Music: Comes with being a rocker and the child of the greatest vigilante in folklore.
  • Men Can't Keep House: Much to the disgust of Duchess in Next Top Villain, Sparrow's treehouse in the forest is a pigsty.
  • Music Soothes the Savage Beast: While the animals around Ever After High don't seem to be that malicious, griffons aren't all that keen on leaving their nests or being messed with in general. When Sparrow plays his guitar, however, they seem to be a bit more docile, and actually headband to the music! Subverted with the horses in Next Top Villain though.
  • Never My Fault: Has an incredibly self-centered attitude, making him far less beloved among his peers than he would seem to think. However, he cuts ties with Duchess in True Heart's Day because he thinks that it's simply because of his friendship with her that he couldn't find out where the secret dance was being held.
  • Noble Male, Roguish Male: The Rogue to Daring's Noble. Sparrow also considers himself a ladies' man, but has none of Daring's better qualities to back it up.
  • Only Friend: To Duchess, though he's more of a accomplice to her. Until True Hearts day part 3, where he cuts his ties with her, because she was ruining his reputation.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to Hunter's Sensitive Guy.
  • Ship Tease: Maybe has this with Duchess? Many fans started shipping them after True Heart's Day because they were working together, and the EAH facebook page teased at it as well, but nothing in the episode(s) actually supported it. And then they weren't shown having any interaction until the Next Top Villain book, where there is a decent amount of interaction and some definite flirting on Sparrow's part - but the books are usually seen as a different continuity from the webisodes.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Sparrow is totally convinced that he's "the rocking-est, handsomest guy in the school." Too bad he's the only one.
  • Sticky Fingers: Loves to steal, but his actual skill tends to vary between the books and the cartoons.
  • The Rival: With Hunter. He antagonizes him for no known reason. Maybe because Hunter also uses a bow and arrow and Sparrow thinks that should be his thing.
  • Treehouse of Fun: According to Next Top Villain, Sparrow lives in one of these in the woods instead of in the dorms with the other boys.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: In Next Top Villain he is this to Duchess; though in the webisodes, it's reversed.

    Melody Piper

Daughter of the Pied Piper, and a DJ. Amusingly, she looks nothing like her father.

  • Ambiguously Brown: She has slightly tanned skin.
  • Berserk Button: Mocking her isn't a good idea as Sparrow learned in Spring Unsprung.
  • Catch Phrase: Says "Follow me!" when turning on the tunes. Makes sense, if you consider her story.
  • Daddy's Girl: Though she and her father have very different looks and musical tastes, the Piper supports his daughter's musical endeavors, and they both share the view that music should make people happy. Melody herself comments on their good relationship in her diary.
  • Doing It for the Art: In-Universe. In her profile and diary, it is shown that Melody holds fame and fortune beneath making music that everyone can dance to and bond over. This attitude seems to pay off, as she's everyone's go-to musician for events and is Briar's favorite DJ.
  • Freaky Fashion, Mild Mind: Her fashion sense is edgy, but it still provides a bit of contrast with her kind personality and desire to make others happy with her music.
  • Multicolored Hair: White with dark fuchsia streaks.
  • Music Soothes the Savage Beast: In Dragon Games, Melody controls her pet dragon with the use of her MirrorPod and dragon-sized headphones instead of a leash or reins.


How well does it match the trope?
