First appearance



Prince Charming's third wife, Cinderella is often seen as loud and rambunctious by her fellow Fables, and usually goes simply by the name Cindy. She is the owner and manager of her own shoe store, the Glass Slipper, in Fabletown. This, however, is merely a cover: she secretly works for the Sheriff (first Bigby and then later Beast) as one of his off-the-record spies. She considers herself to be good at her job, as well as being a fairly decent assassin. Her typical missions include finding Fables who may still be loyal to the Adversary, and she tends to use her good looks to do it. Her first real mission shown in the series was an example of this, and happened during March of the Wooden Soldiers where Bigby had her trapping Ichabod Crane (in France) into admitting that he would follow the Adversary if she were to ask him to; she even got him to sign a confession to that effect, as well as a detailed inventory (written by Crane) of all magical artifacts Fabletown had. However, an earlier mission of hers may have been seen before this: in her first appearance (20 issues before it is revealed that she is a secret agent), she is seen fencing with Bluebeard while discussing the murder of Rose Red. Given Bluebeard was a suspect, it is logical that Cinderella was acting under Bigby's orders to gather information and determine Bluebeard's involvement. After the Battle for Fabletown, she participated in the interrogation of the captured wooden soldiers. She then acted as a delegate to the Cloud Kingdom, where she began to forge an alliance with the Giants on behalf of Fabletown. This allowed her to act as Bigby Wolf's mission operator during Operation Israel. Cinderella ran into a problem while trying to get the Cloud Giants High King to sign a treaty with Fabletown. To solve this, she enlisted the aid of the resident medic of Smalltown, and was turned into a mouse using one of Frau Totenkinder's potions. The price she has to pay for this potion has yet to be revealed, but Cindy certainly feels that it will come back to haunt her. Recently, it has been revealed that she has been interrogating Baba Yaga; considering the fact that only Bigby and Frau Totenkinder know about Baba Yaga being a captive of Fabletown, it is reasonable to assume that this may be part of the debt she owes the witch. Cinderella apparently slipped up and revealed to Baba Yaga that Fabletown had the Witching Well, which prompted Baba Yaga to reveal that she has been learning more from Cinderella during these interrogations than Cindy has been from her. However, this may all be part of Cindy's greater plan.
