Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Emma is a beautiful woman with long, wavy blonde hair and blue eyes. When she is a member of the Red Riding Hood Sisters, she wears a red frilly skirt, brown corset, red hood and knee-length boots. When she lived in the Sky Kingdom, she wore a blue tube top, long blue skirt and an assortment of heavy gold jewellery.
Emma is a kind and caring person who supports those she loves in their endeavors, no matter how outlandish they might be. When hurt by someone she loves, she can be scornful and even a little violent, but there is still love deep inside. As a Red Riding Hood Sister, Emma goes out of her way to help those in need however and whenever she can.
Emma is a descendant of the Princess of the Sky Kingdom. She was raised as a noblewoman but found herself bored with her pampered life and instead ran away to join the Order of the Red Riding Hood Sisters, where she became skilled in throwing knives. While on patrol in the woods, she rescued a fortune hunter named Jack from certain danger. The two fell in love and Emma left the order for a future with Jack. She joined his group of treasure hunters, including Raphael, who all wore a similar badge.
One day, Jack caught a glimpse of the legendary Sky Kingdom, a place rumored to house numerous treasures. He became obsessed, rarely eating or sleeping. Emma gave Jack her Beans of Growth, a family heirloom and gave him her blessing to use them. Together the group climbed the giant beanstalk, but were confronted by three guardian Princes of the kingdom. Jack's compatriots began falling left and right and he fled with a single treasure in hand. Assuming Emma was behind him, he chopped down the beanstalk, unaware that he had left his friends and fiancee trapped in the Sky Kingdom.
King Eurig recognized Emma as his descendant and adopted her into his family. In the ten years she spent in the Sky Kingdom, Emma grew close to her new family, especially Prince Hugh, who allowed her to use his telescope to watch Jack down on the ground. The Princes wanted to help her, but the King refused to let them do so.
As Emma learned of the King's history and his plans to destroy the earth, she plead with the Princes to help her stop his madness. However, none of the Princes would do so. Left with no other choice, Emma sabotaged the King's plans by exposing the Kingdom's position in the hopes that the Fairytale Detective would come and aid her in saving the world below.
Five days after the events of Jack and the Sky Kingdom, Emma and Jack came to the forested areas near the Mist Kingdom. Emma returned to the Order of the Red Riding Hood Sisters and the two continued to live together happily. However, during her duties as a Red Riding Hood Sister, Emma found a young woman lost in the woods. Unbeknownst to her, this woman was Princess Leda, looking for a way to remove the cursed blessing of her Golden Touch. Emma made the mistake of touching Leda, which caused Emma to turn into solid gold.
Jack vowed to find a cure for his beloved Emma, and hunted down Leda in Barsia, where he also heard of the Fallen Star that could grant any wish. He failed in acquiring it, and Emma's golden curse was not removed when the Fallen Star was used to undo the damage done to Barsia, since Emma was turned to gold outside of the kingdom. The Fairytale Detective eventually removed Emma's curse using the tears of a Golden Child.

- "Be careful of the Princes. If they see you, they'll have your head."

He plans to use the Shard to remake the world in a misguided belief that he is honoring his Queen's dying wishes. There's a reason the King allows me to be here - I'm a descendant of his daughter. He sees her in me. I've tried to reason with him, but he won't listen to me. You must stop the King before it's too late. I will help you, but first, we must restore the fallen pieces of the Sky Kingdom."
- "He was kind to me. There was good in him."
