Isaac Heller is a supporting character on Once Upon a Time. A troubled man with a warped sense of entitlement, Isaac was a struggling writer getting by on television sales, until a meeting with a "publisher" changed his life forever and he became the new Author - the latest in a long line of sacred scribes who were tasked with recording the greatest stories of all time for posterity. However, he abused his power and used it to manipulate stories as he saw fit, preferring it when villains are the ones who win. After teaming up with Rumplestiltskin in Storybrooke, he lost his position by writing his own happy ending, and ended up imprisoned at the hands of the people he set out to punish.

Snow White and Prince Charming's wedding is interrupted by the Evil Queen's announcement that she will destroy everyone's happiness. The Queen fulfills her promise by unleashing a curse upon the fairytale world that rips away everyone's happy endings by sending them to our world. The fairytale characters we know and love therefore become trapped in the town of Storybrooke, Maine, dazed and unable to remember their past and prior identities, assuming new ones, and unaware of the fact that time is frozen. When young Henry Mills, the adopted son of Mayor Regina Mills - the real world alter-ego of the Evil Queen - starts believing in the curse and that everyone in town is a fairytale character, due to a book given to him by his teacher, Miss Blanchard (Snow White), he tracks down his birth mother, Emma Swan, in Boston, knowing her to be the child of the royal couple, and the key to everyone's salvation.
