Character Bio

Ariel photo
Ariel ~ "I'm not afraid of you or your guns, and not because I don't know what it is!"

is a mermaid who is first seen assisting Snow White, after she escapes from the Evil Queen Regina's knights by diving into waters from a high cliff. Ariel reveals to Snow that she can bear legs upon land for 12 hours according to the sea goddess Ursula's legend. To repay Ariel for saving her life, Snow assists Ariel get to a ball and meet Prince Eric, a man whom Ariel saved a year prior after a shipwreck. Eric remembers Ariel and invites her to travel with him, telling her to think about her decision and return soon. The Evil Queen overlooks this and poses as Ursula to trick Ariel into giving Snow a bracelet that makes her a mermaid, in order for her to fulfill her wishes and escape to travel the world.

However, Ariel discovers Ursula's true identity and the Evil Queen tells her to escape and meet Eric. She then attempts to kill Snow until Ariel stabs her with a fork, escaping with Snow under the sea. When Snow is safely ashore, she tells Ariel to return to Eric. However, upon arrival at his castle, she realizes that the Evil Queen has stolen her voice, and cannot communicate with him.

Regina later summons Ariel to Neverland, revealing that mermaids can travel through realms. She promises to return her legs if she retrieves Pandora's Box from Mr. Gold's shop to defeat Peter Pan. After she completes the quest, Regina gives her the ability to use both her legs and fins, allowing her to continue her search for Eric in Storybrooke. With help from Belle, she finds Eric as a fisherman and the two reconcile. After Peter Pan enacts the original curse again, Ariel, along with the other inhabitants, are consumed and returned to their original worlds.
