The Evil Stepmother is a minor character in the third Dark Parables game, Rise of the Snow Queen. She is the second wife of King Edric, and the stepmother of Snow White and Ross Red.

She is based on both the evil stepmother in the German fairy tale Snow White and The Old Lady Who Knew Magic from Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen.

It is possible, likely even, that the Evil Stepmother's character may overlap at some point with other villains in other games in the Dark Parables universe. For now, she is assumed to be a separate entity.

Appearance and Personality Edit

As the Evil Stepmother is currently missing, her appearance is only known through a portrait that depicts an elegant woman with a pale complexion and brown eyes. Her hair is mostly hidden beneath a blue veil attached to a golden crown but appears to be brown or dark blonde. She is depicted wearing a blue dress with dark purple and red hues at the top. The sleeves are long with some black in between.

The Evil Stepmother's personality is mostly unknown but her name alone suggests a heart of stone who would do any deplorable deed to remain the Fairest of them All. Apparently, she could be lustful or invoked lust in men so they can be obsessed with her beauty - which she enjoys.

History Edit

After marrying the Mountain King, and becoming the Mountain Queen, The King bought the Truth Mirror as a gift for the wicked Queen. She belabored it three times a day to report who was the fairest in the land. One day it answered, declaring that Snow White was. She was overcome with jealousy, bewitched the King and bade him execute Snow White and her brother, Ross Red, for a false offense. But Prince James (whom Snow White had befriended) exposed the stepmother’s wickedness and saved them. This left the King overwhelmed with guilt and anger.

After her true nature was revealed, she fled the Kingdom, never to be seen again. Her location is still unknown. The only clue left behind is her last diary entry, which mentions a mysterious curse that played a significant role in her hasty escape.
