- Alternate Character Interpretation: Rotbart's character differs a lot from his debut story Tales as old as time should've been retired years ago. Rotbart is resentful of his fate and doesn't want to be a villain but goes along with it. He loves and resents Raven for being a Rebel and he's very morose. Poisoning Apple's Rotbart, also resents his fate but he's very self-confident and a prankster. The difference between the two is the fate of Rotbart's father. In Tales as old as time should've been retired years ago Rotbart's father died in his Swan Lake fate of drowning and Rotbart was raised with Raven in their mother's castle. While in Poisoning Apple, Rotbart's father escaped punishment and is still turning maidens into swans. Rotbart would visit Raven at their mother's castle.
YMMV / Poisoning Apple
