Disney Vs Non Disney Villains War - Part Two
The Red Queen was once Ircabeth, a high ranking member of Queen Bavmorda's board of advisory. Ircabeth always had a lust for power. She eventually grew tired of having to serve under Bavmorda, and ultimately tried to usurp her.
With any followers she could get, Ircabeth launched an attack on Bavmorda that ended horribly. All of Ircabeth's followers were killed, save for Ircabeth herself, who Bavmorda had a particularly cruel punishment in store for.
Bavmorda banished I rcabeth to an incredibly barren wasteland, and used magic to lock her in there for the rest of her days.
The Wasteland was utterly empty and devoid of life. Ircabeth lived in complete solitude for close to a decade. Having no companionship whatsoever was going to be the death of her, until she recieved a very special visitor.
Unrolling a large scroll, Rumpelstiltskin said he'd turn the Wasteland into a kingdom, with Ircabeth as its ruler, in exchange for a few favors in the future.
Ircabeth signed her name, and with a wave of his wand, Rumpelstiltskin turned the Wasteland into a flourishing, green kingdom. He dubbed it Wonderland, and named Ircabeth its Red Queen, names ircabeth took a shine to.
Ircabeth was impressed, but Rumpelstiltskin wasn't done yet. He cast a second spell on the kingdom. Anyone unfortunate enough to step on its soil would be unable to leave of their own will.
Before very long, a massive variety of creatures and character became denizens of Wonderlnad. Ircabeth eventually developed a method of torture that could warp one's mind into forgetting their past life. Ircabeth would convince the beings there was only Wonderland. There was nothing aside it. No other lands. This way, no one could ever leave.
Eventually, a poor hat maker named Jefferson wandered into Wonderland, and like anyone else, he was immediately apprehended and taken to the Red Queen, who tried to erase his memory as well.
Strangely, Jefferson was extraordinarily strong willed. He had a daughter back home and refused to forget her or his past life.
The Red Queen wasn't terribly concerned, but to make sure he wouldn't cause trouble, she placed Jefferson in incredibly low poverty.
Jefferson, bided his time, making hats as he did back home. To any Wonderland citizen he saw, he asked them where they came from and how to leave. The other citizens, however, their minds warped by the Red Queen, laughed at the suggestion of other worlds. There was only Wonderland! Jefferson's rumblings of the other worlds eaned him the title 'The Mad Hatter.'
Desperate to leave this mad world, Jefferson made one of his traditional, magic hats. It was his only hope to break the barrier from Wonderlnad. He kept it a secret, even from his daughter, that his hats were also portals to other worlds.
When he thought that finally, no one was looking, he prepared a hat. But his timing couldn't be worse. Stayne, the Red Queen's Knave, stomped in his cabin for surprise inspection. Stayne confiscated the hat and brought Jefferson to the Red Queen.
The Red Queen was actually both impressed and scared by the hat. She ultimately gave Jefferson an order. He'd spend his days making more hats for the exclusive use of the Queen. But, if he ever dared to leave using one, he'd be hunted down and decapitated.
To throw salt upon the wound that was slavery, the Red Queen paid nothing to Jefferson, who would remain in poverty for the sake of keeping his magic secret.
To this day, Jefferson fantasizes of seeing his daughter again, while making magic hat after hat for the Red Queen, who sits upon her throne of fake friendship.
Keeping the Throne
Count Rugen, hired by the villainous Queen Bavmorda, proposes a diplomatic solution to the Red Queen; should Bavmorda have control of Wonderland, the Red Queen may remain alive. Enraged at the thought of losing the crown, the Red Queen tasks her knave, Stayne, with eliminating Rugen. He succeeds.
