Once upon a time, in deep winter,

a queen was admiring the falling snow,

when she saw a rose blooming

in defiance of the cold.

reaching for it she pricked her

finger, and three drops of blood fell.

And because the red seemed

so alive against the white,

she thought:
"If only I had

a child as white as snow,

lips as red as blood, hair

as black as a raven's wings,

and all of the strength of that rose. "

Soon after a daughter was born to

the queen, and was named Snow White.

And she was adored

throughout the kingdom,

as much for her defiant

spirit as for her beauty.

We found it in the woods,

it's injured mother.

It must have broken it's wing.

- Don't worry, it will heal in time.

- I'll look after it.

You posses a rare beauty my love.

In here, never loose it.

It will serve you well

when you become queen.

Careful you don't fall. - I'm just

getting you an apple, here you go.

Thank you. William!


The next winter was

the harshest in memory.

Snow White's mother passed away.

The king was inconsolable.

Taking advantage of his

grief, a dark and mysterious

army appeared and lured him into battle.

- What devil spawned this army?!

- Send them back to hell!

No prisoners!

Dark army was defeated, but what

would soon come to pass was far darker.



Fear not, you will come to

no harm from me or my men.

What is your name milady?

Ravenna, sire.

So enchanted by her beauty was the king,

that he forgot for the

first time his broken heart.

And the very next day

she would become his wife.

You're so beautiful.

- That's kind, child.

Especially when it is said that yours is

the face of true beauty in this kingdom.


This all must be difficult for you.

I too lost my mother

when I was a young girl.

I can never take your

mother's place, never.

But I feel that you and I are bound.

I feel it there, your heart.

You will be the ruin of me.

Indeed my lord.

I was ruined by a king like you once.

I replaced his queen, an old woman.

And in time I too would

have been replaced.

Men use women.

They ruin us, and when

they are finished with us,

they toss us to their dogs like scraps.

What have you given me?

When a woman stays young and

beautiful forever, the world is hers.

First I will take your life, my lord.

And then I'll take your throne.

Welcome brother.

- My queen.

She had tricked her way into the

kingdom with her phantom army.

She now welcomed a very real one.


- Princess! No!

Don't leave!


William, don't leave me!

Father we must go back!

We've lost her!

- No!



Mirror, mirror, on the wall.

Who is the fairest of them all?

It is you, my queen.

Yet another kingdom falls to your glory.

Is there no end to

your power and beauty?

So poisonous was the reign of Ravenna,

that nature turned on itself,

and people turned on each other.

The land died, and with it, hope.

And all that time she

kept Snow White imprisoned,

high up in the north tower.

Our Father, Who art in

heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name.

Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be

done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those

who sin against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. Amen.



- What is your name?

- I am Greta.

- What happened to you?

- All the girls in our village were taken.

I was trying to reach duke

Hammond's castle when I was caught.

Hammond? Is he alive?

- Does he still fight in my father's name?

- You are the king's daughter?
