Character Bio

Snow White ~ "Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a very powerful thing".

Snow White is the daughter of King Leopold and Queen Eva, and later stepdaughter of The Evil Queen Regina. She is the true love of Prince Charming, mother of Emma Swan, and later grandmother of her son Henry.

Snow White is the kindest and fairest in the land. The Queen is very jealous of how her people respect and adore her even as a child. She has a special bond with all creatures in the Enchanted Forest and can actually communicate with them. She is forced to grow up very fast given her situation and quickly becomes a fierce fight always fighting for true love and what is right as her heart is pure.

Spoilers Ahead!!!

As a young girl, Snow White's mother dies from Cora poisoning her in an attempt to make her daughter Regina Queen. Snow is later rescued from a runaway horse by Regina which leads to her having a loveless marriage with Snow's father. After Regina assumes the throne by killing the King, she recruits The Huntsman to kill Snow; he spared her for her selflessness. Snow then lives in the forest, meeting Prince David while robbing him who she nicknames Charming. The pair fall in love, but he returns to his fiancée Princess Abigail. She then moves in with The Seven Dwarfs and Charming breaks off his engagement, but Snow drinks a potion to forget their relationship. It changes her into a mean-spirited person before Charming kisses her, regaining her original personality.

However, the pair are later separated when The Evil Queen holds him captive. In exchange for Charming's life, Snow eats an apple from the Queen containing a sleeping curse. David breaks free of his imprisonment and awakens her with true love's kiss. The two are later married, though The Evil Queen arrives at the ceremony and announces that she will place a curse on everyone to destroy their happiness. Snow gives birth to Emma and as the curse takes hold, and she is placed in a magical wardrobe and transported to Maine.

In Storybrooke, she is Mary Margaret Blanchard, Henry's favourite teacher at Storybrooke Elementary School. She also volunteers part-time at Storybrooke General Hospital. When David Nolan (Prince Charming) awakes from his coma, the pair gradually fall in love, despite David's marriage to Kathryn Nolan (Princess Abigail). They eventually give in to one another and begin a secret relationship. After the affair becomes public and David's marriage breaks down, Mary Margaret is labelled a tramp and becomes an outcast.

She is later re-accepted by residents after helping the local nunnery pay its rent. She is arrested for Kathryn's apparent murder after evidence connected to her is discovered. Emma believes that she is innocent, later proven to be correct when Kathryn is found alive. Her relationship with David becomes strained as he did not believe she was innocent. He eventually decides to leave Storybrooke, but they are reunited when the curse is broken, and regain their memories.

After the curse is broken, Mary Margaret reunites with Charming and Emma, only to be transported with Emma back to the Enchanted Forest through a portal. They meet Princess Aurora and Mulan who take them to a small village that was untouched by the curse, and are thrown into a makeshift prison, where they meet Regina's mother Cora. They make it back to Storybrooke, through a portal created by Cora and Captain Hook. In Storybrooke, Cora and Regina join forces and attempt to gain power by killing Mr. Gold. Mary Margaret, David, Emma and Neal attempt to save his life.

Tired of constantly losing by being good, Mary Margaret curses Cora's heart with the same candle that Cora used to kill her mother Eva. She then tricks Regina into restoring Cora's poisoned heart, killing her. She pleads for Regina to kill her when she cannot deal with what she has done, but Regina taunts her by showing her blackened heart as a result of her actions. When Henry is captured by Greg Mendell and Tamara and taken to Neverland, Mary Margaret travels there with Emma, David, Regina, Mr. Gold, and Captain Hook to rescue Henry. Upon returning to the town with Henry, Peter Pan enacts Regina's original curse again, leading Mary Margaret to be returned to the Enchanted Forest with the other inhabitants, while Emma and Henry escape to New York City.

Back in the Enchanted Forest, Snow learns she is pregnant but discovers that Zelena, the Wicked Witch of the West wants her baby. Upon advice from Glinda, Snow realizes she must enact a new curse to return to Storybrooke and make Emma stop Zelena. A reassuring David lets Snow crush his heart, though later asks Regina to split Snow's heart in two to give to both of them. Zelena then adds a forgetting potion to the curse, causing them to lose their memories of the past year. A year later, Emma returns to Storybrooke and Mary Margaret reveals she is pregnant, finding herself the target in Zelena's scheme, who becomes her mid-wife. Zelena is ultimately defeated and Mary Margaret gives birth to a son, whom she names after Henry's father and Rumplestiltkin's son, Neal. Mary Margaret later becomes Mayor of Storybrooke.
