AMBROSE, KING IMMORTAL KING OF HEMEROCALLIS JAMES MARSDEN OPEN
He was originally a dashing young prince, who was cursed by a witch (actually Frau Totenkinder) for being too vain; he'd remain a frog until he'd find someone who'd love him despite his appearance. This never happened, and he changed back when the princess accidentally threw her golden ball in well, she reluctantly agreed to kiss him if he'd retrieve the ball. Later on, when the princess and her father were having dinner when the frog prince came to the door, the princess was so shocked and disgusted that she slammed the door in his face though her father made the unhappy princess let the frog prince come inside, dine with them and share her bed with the princess. Sharing her bed with a frog was the final straw and in repulsion, threw Ambrose against the wall. Since then, the two have been married and have had five children and are expecting their sixth child. Lilly has also become less spoilt and more loving to Ambrose.

One day, she accidentally threw her golden ball into a well. A frog offered to retrieve the ball if she’d kiss him. She consented rather reluctantly but when the frog made good on his offer, Lily in revulsion, ran back to her castle. Later on, when she and her father were having dinner, there came a knock at the door, which the Princess answered. It was the frog from before. She shut the door in disgust but her father told her to let the frog in. When they dined, the father had to tell Lily to allow the frog to sit on the table. Lastly, when the frog asked to sleep in the Princess’s bed, she threw him against the wall, thus revealing his true human form and nature; he was a prince.

PELA, QUEEN IMMORTAL QUEEN OF PLOCEIDAE JENNIFER GARNER OPEN
Pela was born the daughter of a miller. Her father wanted to impress the king, and so told him that she could spin straw into gold. The king instantly locked Pela up and told her that if she didn’t spin all the straw into gold by morning he’d cut off her head. Pela could barely spin as it was, and she definitely couldn’t spin anything into gold. When she had given up all hope, Rumplestiltskin appeared. He spun the straw into gold in return for Pela’s necklace. The next day, the king gave her even more straw and repeated the threat. Rumpelstiltskin returned and spun the straw into gold for Pela’s bracelet. Then, the king gave Pela even more straw, and said that if she spun it all into gold that he would marry her, but kill her if she did not. When Rumpelstiltskin returned, Pela promised to give him her firstborn child. She and King Szczpan married, and soon enough had a baby boy. Rumpelstiltskin came to collect, but Pela begged to keep her child. He decided to give her three days to guess his name. The first two days she was at a loss, but the second night she overheard Rumpelstiltskin singing about his name. So the third day Pela revealed she knew his name, and in anger Rumpelstiltskin ran off. Pela and Szczpan are now mostly happily married and they rule over Ploceidae.

Rejecting Odile and stating that he’d rather die with Odette, the couple’s love is cemented when they both seemingly commit suicide but instead of dying, they were reborn and tied the knot. Siegfried now has the swan as his House emblem.
SZCZPAN, KING IMMORTAL KING OF PLOCEIDAE TOM CRUISE OPEN

He knew his father would only ask for more and more gold but was thoroughly surprised when his father agreed to allow Pela to marry him (Szczpan) if she completed the three tasks (basically just turning straw into gold). Szczpan and Pela were then married but when Szczpan was told of the deal that his wife had made with a creature called Rumpelstiltskin, he was understandably upset but gave Pela a book of names so she might discover the loathsome creature’s name. After the incident with Rumpelstiltskin, they lived on happily.
THOMAS, KING IMMORTAL KING OF CASARINA BILLY MAGNUSSEN OPEN
When this former Prince set out to do some hunting he didn’t expect to find a tower in the middle of nowhere and certainly didn’t expect to see a very attractive girl in the tower named Rapunzel; he instantly wanted her. After spending several nights with her, as the witch who had locked her up came during the day, Thomas was tricked into climbing up the tower and was faced with the witch, who pushed from the sole tower opening, causing him to be blind. He wandered aimlessly for years before having his sight restored by Rapunzel’s tears and meeting his children for the first time. They weren’t due for a happy ending yet however, as his mother tried to do away with her new daughter-in-law. After this incident though, Thomas and his family finally lived happily together for many years before Thomas disappeared when he was out hunting. Where he’s been all these years remains a mystery.
