Reul Ghorm, better known as the Blue Fairy, is a supporting character on Once Upon a Time. She was the leader of the fairies in the fairytale world, and presumably the most powerful creature in all the land, capable of performing the most exquisite enchantments. She was responsible for indirectly instilling in Rumplestiltskin the idea of creating a curse that would transport everyone in her world to a different one, a curse that was later brought forth by the evil Queen Regina. In Storybrooke, the Blue Fairy's counterpart became the Mother Superior, the leader of the local nuns.

Biography

Before the Curse

Blue Fairy 119
The Blue Fairy helps Baelfire. ("The Return")

When Rumplestiltskin becomes corrupted by his newly gained magical abilities, his son, Baelfire, calls upon the Blue Fairy to help his father and the curse that has taken over him. Blue explains to the boy that his father can never return to his normal self, however, explains that they could go to a land without magic. She gives him a magical bean, which is apparently the last of its kind. After Rumple refuses to give up his power and leaves Baelfire to go to the new land alone, he angrily calls out for the Blue Fairy. She tells him that there's no way to get back with Baelfire without paying a great price, which is giving up this land in exchange for the next. She accidentally admits that there is a curse that can perform this act, but takes pleasure in the fact that she knows he will never be able to enact it. Rumplestiltskin vows to do whatever it takes to get Baelfire back. ("The Return")

Jiminy EL 3
The Blue Fairy turns Jiminy into a cricket. ("That Still Small Voice")

Many years later, a depressed Jiminy makes a wish upon a star, and the Blue Fairy shows up. She tells him, however, that it's not possible to bring back the boy's parents. Jiminy says that he has to make it right, but she tells him that there might be another way. She suggests that he help the young boy, who will grow up to face many challenges. Jiminy wants to, but he can't escape his parents. The fairy asks him what he'd like to be if he could be something else. He doesn't reply, only thinks about it, bathed by the sounds of the crickets, but she hears him loud and clear. She then turns him into a talking cricket, complete with the top half of a suit and a top hat, as well as a tiny umbrella. She then tells him that he will live as many years as he needs to help the boy, and urges him to find Geppetto. ("That Still Small Voice")

Blue Fairy 215
Cora manipulates Snow under the guise of Blue. ("The Queen Is Dead")

When Snow White's mother, Queen Eva, becomes gravely ill, Johanna, one of the servants, tells Snow White of a secret that she isn't supposed to know. She tells the young girl that Eva has a secret connection with the Blue Fairy, and that she should go to her if she seeks a way to save her mother. Snow does this and goes out in the middle of the night, seeking the aid of the fairy. Despite having difficulty finding the correct star to wish upon, the Blue Fairy finds her. Snow tells the fairy of her problem, that her mother is dying and they cannot find a cure, but Blue explains that there is nothing she can do, as preventing an inevitable death is not pure magic. A desperate Snow begs Blue for anything to help, so she offers her a magic candle that will save her mother's life, but take the life of another. She promises Snow to never tell anyone of this offer and then Snow takes the candle, reluctant to use it as she wants her mother to see her as a good person. She decides to not use the candle, resulting in her mother dying. After the funeral, the Blue Fairy comes to see the corpse, but it turns out it was actually Cora in disguise, and she was the one who poisoned the queen. ("The Queen Is Dead")

Tink explains herself by telling Blue that she was helping Regina, however, Blue warns Tink that Regina is dark and she’s lucky to be alive. She tells Tink that Regina is not a woman who can be helped as she’s surrounded by darkness; however, the green fairy points out that its all the more reason to help her.

However, once she’s gone, Tink disobeys her trainer and leaves to find Regina. Blue catches Tinker Bell leaving Regina’s palace and scolds her for stealing the pixie dust, telling her it cannot be forgiven. An upset Tinker Bell begs for a second chance, but Blue explains that this was her second chance. The green fairy begins crying and apologizes, asking for a chance to prove herself again, however, Blue states that she cannot for one tragic reason; she no longer believes in her.

Nova understands this and then goes on to complain that she thought she'd be a fairy godmother by now. The Blue Fairy laughs at this and tells Nova that she is a dreamer. Blue leaves Nova to take the fairy dust to the dwarf mines and then flies away. Many nights later, after Nova falls in love with a dwarf named Dreamy, the two arrange to meet up at Firefly Hill so they can run away together.

Before she can react, she is suddenly frozen by magic and taken prisoner by the royal couple. Later on, Blue attends the royal council meeting when Regina's fate is discussed.

The Blue Fairy suggests making the Enchanted Wardrobe. ("Pilot")

A few months later, Prince Charming and Snow White discuss how to defeat the Evil Queen's Dark Curse with their allies. Just before everyone votes to going to war, the Blue Fairy flies in with an enchanted tree. She claims that the tree, if fashioned into a vessel, will take one person and whisk them away to another world, so that they could come back for everyone else and save them. The plan is for Snow White, whilst pregnant with Emma, to go through with her child in order for both of them to escape the curse, despite the fact that the wardrobe would actually be able to transport two people. Blue does not reveal this due to the deal she made with Geppetto; he will not build the wardrobe unless his son, Pinocchio, can go through it also, due to the fact that he's a real boy due to magic and the curse might send him back into his wooden state. ("Pilot"/"The Stranger")

Blue Fairy 311
Blue tries in vain to infuse Snow White with a little hope. ("Going Home")

Inside was is supposed to be Snow White's baby's nursery, a heavily pregnant Snow looks sadly at the not-yet-complete magical wardrobe she may have to use to transport herself and her baby away from her home in the Enchanted Forest. She then approaches the Blue Fairy, who's hovering within the nursery, and we see that her husband Prince Charming is in the room with her. Snow asks the fairy what is to happen should the plan fail, as they all know a magic wardrobe is a long-shot, and Blue tells the princess that they shall all be transported to the Queen's new land; they will lose their memories and become slaves to her darkest desires. Therefore, they have to have faith that Snow's child will find a way to save them, but Snow points out that if they don't know who they are and they can't tell their daughter that she's the savior, then she won't have any way of knowing what to do. Blue explains that, someday, when the time is right, their story shall reveal itself to her, and she tells the uneasy princess that she has to trust her. Snow wonders what the fairy means by their "story", and Blue admits to not yet knowing, but says she does know that it will happen. Snow wonders further how Blue can be so sure, and she says that she has the one thing that Snow needs now more than anything: hope. "Good luck, Snow. Have faith," she tells her before flying out the window. ("Going Home") However, Snow White goes into labor the day the wardrobe was finished, ruining the original plan, and Charming has to put the newborn baby Emma inside instead, alone. The Dark Curse arrives moments after and the Blue Fairy is transported to the small town of Storybrooke in Maine, USA, where she lives as the town's nuns', who are all former fairies, Mother Superior.. ("Pilot"/"The Stranger")

Origins

Pinocchio Disney
Promotional poster of the 1940 film adaptation by Walt Disney.

The character of Blue Fairy/Mother Superior is based on the popular fairytale character of Pinocchio, the titular protagonist of the children's book The Adventures of Pinocchio, by Italian author Carlo Collodi, published in 1883. There are many adaptations of the story, the most popular - and the one followed closely by Once Upon a Time - being the film adaptation by Disney, from 1940, often deemed one of the best animated films of all time. The general story of Pinocchio is that of a lonely woodcarver named Geppetto who creates a puppet, fashioned like a young boy, and wishes that it became a real child. A fairy then gives life to the puppet and tells him to behave and be truthful, and in doing so he can go on to become a real boy someday. However, Pinocchio becomes prone to lying and disobeying his conscience, and gets in a sequence of problems and misadventures. When Geppetto sets out to find his son and Pinocchio rescues him with great sacrifice, the fairy finally transforms him into a real boy.
