A cheerful and optimistic girl, Rebecca always aims to go the extra mile to brighten someone’s day. Excellence does have its own charm, of course. It is, after all, in her name. At Ever After High, Rebecca strives to be the best that she can be - to her peers, her teachers and for her parents, given her status as the youngest member in a large Charming family. Eager to leave a good mark in high school, Rebecca is hopeful and looks forward to a bright future.
Let’s face it: we can’t really describe a person’s entire personality due to a little something called mood swings and the capacity to feel multiple emotions and feelings at once so it’s a bit offensive to try and squeeze ‘a person’ into a few paragraphs, but I’ll do my best.
Both extroverted and outgoing, Rebecca is an extremely sociable and friendly person who will not hesitate to engage anyone in a conversation. She is a real social butterfly and can be quite the chatterbox, having a penchant for some gossip. Nevertheless, she is a really pleasant and well-meaning girl, easy to get along with. Friendships and social company are two things Rebecca cherishes, because they make life more interesting, especially in class-ics, cough cough cough. Life for Rebecca should be like a box of surprises, because Rebecca likes action, and exciting moments like hands-on activities, getting attention because she has just made some witty or pun-filled remark or just about anything other than sitting in the lecture theatre for 6 hours a day and Princessology thronework is something she loves.
Rebecca delights in being a people-pleaser as bringing joy to others lights up her own smile as well. She bears the classic Charming smile everywhere, occasionally having a little shine. She likes seeing others happy, as being happy is infectious and is very supportive of whatever her friends choose to do. Her bubbly personality paints her as a happy-go-lucky girl, which she is. When in extremely high spirits, Rebecca exudes confidence in whatever she does but does become particularly talkative and opinionated to even the smallest thing, liking to take centre stage with her views (that absolutely must be heard, according to herself, sometimes much to others' chagrin). She may come off as attention-grabbing in this way, but when you're the youngest in a large family with everyone metaphorically having a louder voice than you, it's not counter-intuitive to think that this might be a contributing factor to how Rebecca is in a desperate attempt to make use of this high school opportunity to ensure that she is heard when she can still be heard. When she is like this, this is an implying factor that she has fit in with her environment and most definitely needs an impulse control, thankfully finding one in Royalle.
Rebecca is also creative, liking to find new ways to solve problems or engaging in conversations. She is also artistically talented and musically inclined, which is where she can actually put her creativity to good use as she seems to always have good ideas at the correct times.
Rebecca is rather intelligent, but because of a certain slacking quality called laziness, her FPA is 3.6. Sometimes, in a bout of fake ignorance or mischief, she considers herself dumb and constantly makes a big fuss of it (loving to drive others crazy trying to assure her she is smart). Other times, she is like a walking encyclopedia who spews random but relevant facts at relevant times. Just kidding, she's a learned genius who knows what she is studying well. She is also quite adaptable, as she is shown to be able to fit in with whatever learning environment she is thrown into quickly. She does not, however, like a change in social environment because in this aspect, she miserably fails in this area, despite the fact that she is outgoing and loves to make new friends (as in, she wants to make friendships that are true and genuine, with no judgement in between).
A rather annoying flaw in her character is her tendency to be mischievous. A lot of people easily think she is immature because of this, which happens to be the case because even when she entered spellementary school, her main influential figures in her life, both her father and mother, raised her like a little kid. Also, a lot of her friends used to play make-believe a lot, hence this mentality of acting like a kid stuck with her throughout (because of late maturity and inability to adapt quickly with her social environment). As of now, she is aware of this so she uses quick and sharp witty remarks in order to defend herself and preserve her pride.
However, the main killer and foil for Rebecca is her laziness, which more often than not, leads to procrastination. Procrastination is a bad enough flaw. Combine it with laziness and you get something else on a more catastrophic level. Rebecca tends to be unmotivated when it comes to dull and boring things like thronework (honestly, who wouldn’t) and is more likely to set academics and similar boring activities as the last thing she would choose to do on her mental list. Pushing the more important things in her life aside until the very last minute has caused her to regret constantly, but doesn’t make an effort to change (I mean, she tried previously but it didn’t work very well). Rebecca is very well aware of this, even choosing to comment sarcastically about her laziness many times, but leopards can’t change their spots that easily. Rebecca’s priorities are most of the time messed up, but she’s attempting to work on that (under her sister’s urging).
The irony is that when Rebecca is feeling particularly motivated, she strives for excellence, having a weird sort of semi-perfectionist mentality. If she is determined enough, she will want to push herself the extra mile. After all, she was named for excellence. Again, her tendency to procrastinate and be lazy have been a thorn in her side because literally no one can be perfect. Had she not possessed this flaw, she most probably would be topping her classes. However, her weird mood swings and the unpredictability of her personality give her motivation for self-improvement in other areas, which helps a lot in expanding her social circle as she is always trying to find ways to paint a better image of herself. After all, it’s good to make good impressions on others.
In general, Rebecca is just a decent person to hang out with. Princess Charming stereotypes are easy to mingle with, given that they are all kind, caring and compassionate. Rebecca fits the mold, but life is not always about the generic types of people. People have diverse personalities, and Rebecca’s only one of many types of Charmings. Not perfect, but we’re still working on that, which Rebecca excels at.
Rebecca stands at 5’6 (as of her current age) and is a petite girl with fair beige skin, like that of a Caucasian. She has wavy blonde locks and emerald eyes. At the age of 13, during a large Charming family gathering, she and her sister, along with various other similarly aged Charming relatives that included Darling Charming, went to the Tower Hair Salon as part of a dare to get a dye job on their hair. Rebecca chose purple and lo and behold, she now has purple highlights in her hair. Regarding her clothing style, Rebecca is fond of jewelry and flowers as part of her regular motif. She also likes fishnets. Her main theme colors are blue, red, green, purple and sometimes turquoise. Her metal color can interchangeably be gold or silver.
Like any regular Charming princess, Rebecca loves getting lost in the world of books. Be it novels, magazines or encyclopedias, Rebecca delights in them all. Rebecca especially enjoys original plots with many plot twists and her favourite genre is science fiction, particularly dystopian novels. Her love for reading is also where she gains her ability to spew out knowledgeable facts because as we all know, reading in general improves language use and skill. Knowledge is indeed, power. She used to be a bookworm. However, recently, she has embarked on a reading hiatus due to something more attractive...the MirrorNet.
Diamonds are a woman's best friend, just like how dogs are a man's best friend. Similarity? They both start with D. Just kidding. It's a known fact that Rebecca likes to accessorize her outfits with elaborate jewellery, even incorporating them into fabric items such as belts, jackets and others. Rebecca creates her own jewelry designs, and does have a rare treasure box full of precious gems hidden in her dorm room's drawers in order to have a sufficient stash for Rebecca to make new bracelets or necklaces if she feels like it whenever she wants. One of Rebecca's friends, Mary, helps her from time to time as they share similar passions of jewelry making.
That one thing Rebecca likes more than jewelry making (just kidding, she likes a lot more things but only in this context). Fashion designing is really a no-brainer concept to any girl and Rebecca is no exception. Previously, she herself used to use a sewing machine which she was really skilled with but currently, she sends her draft sketches with detailed ideas of whatever fabric she wants to use, length of dress et cetera, to her dressmaker at home, who in turn brings the concepts to life and mails them back to Rebecca at Ever After High. This is due to constant pressure of studying and academics, which has left her no time to manually create an outfit herself, unless it is for a Princess Design class. Her fabrics at Ever After High are also quite questionable and not suitable for her own ideas, but even so, Rebecca thoroughly enjoys drafting dress design concepts. If needed, she’ll happily create a dress design for you, but at a small cost.
A side interest stemmed from reading. History, with all its dark wars and bloodshed, has never felt more appealing to Rebecca. It’s a good representation of the different types of lives, politics, religion, economics and various other subject matters that has been present throughout human existence. From major events like the Medieval times and the crusades of the Knights of the Round Table, to minor incidents such as deaths of famous fairy tales around the world, Rebecca enjoys them all. It’s good to see the gruelling side of history because it simply proves that life is not all pancakes and milkshakes (I’m sorry guys there are better words to substitute this but I typed this at 12am and like this is a Wreck It Ralph 2 reference with no relevance). In other words, history to Rebecca is epic and worth recording for future generations to see, which will eventually make her question the Royal-Rebel movement since their stories have already been recorded: history technically exists to not repeat itself, right? Why are people still trying to repeat the exact same mistakes that previous generations make by staying true to the flawed script of a written reality?
Fight me (her actually), but since her discovery of the invention of the MirrorNet, Rebecca has been addicted to it. Particularly one aspect, games. She detests role-playing games but is fine with others (maybe except horror). Her favourite online game is Mirror Legends (pun on Mobile Legends).
At the same time, she enjoys traditional games more, especially board games. She finds all sorts of them fun and they are really great places to start conversations with. Strategy board games are her favourite because at least they require some planning and thinking.
Princetagram is one of her top applications, along with an art platform and regular hexting apps. It's really self-explanatory what wonders the MirrorNet brings, honestly. She also streams Muse-ic a lot, which can be seen below.
The Sciences, especially Biology
Rebecca always had an inquisitive mind, and a heart nurtured more towards the Sciences than to the Humanities. Biology helps to explain the natural side of life, like why things grow and reproduce, deep topics that always got her to think. Fairysics explained why things worked the way they did - though Rebecca does have tons of questions to challenge the laws and theories of Fairysics due to a complicated way of thinking. Chem-myth-stry involves potions and lab work is always one of her favourites.
She takes an immense interest in Biology because of its heavy content and the wide array of topics to be learnt but it's ironically her worst science academically out of the three main sciences.
Like all princesses, Rebecca has a natural affinity for this glorious form of art. She wanted to learn how to play a muse-ical instrument when she was young, so her parents sent her for private classes to learn how to play the piano. Eventually, her parents asked her if she wanted to take a prestigious music course when she was eight, not fully explaining what the course entailed and not checking to see if she fully comprehended the requirements of the course. Being a happy-go-lucky eight-year-old and all, Rebecca happily complied. She now slogs through a yearly hexamination of piano lessons. Aside from that, Rebecca enjoys muse-ic for what it is. Her favourite forms of muse-ic include classical (the beautiful light-hearted melodies), Renaissance Period music (with all its contrapuntal notes and whatnot) and modern pop (sounds extremely flashy, but emo bland songs #ftw).
The Muse-ic curriculum at Ever After High intrigues her. The theory is terrible to memorise but fun, and the content makes sense to her. Composing melodies are also pretty fun to experiment around with. The only downside are the practicals and hexaminations. When it comes to being proactive and actually taking part in an activity, Rebecca is pretty...eh... Thus, she has come to the conclusion that genuine interests only develop without any coercion from third parties, and still tries to appreciate Muse-ic as hard as the curriculum gets.
TLDR; Rebecca likes things with a lot of content.
- Time Manipulation via flipping of hair: Rebecca can choose to slow down time for five minutes by flipping her hair in a very dramatic way. This is great for escaping adoring fan crowds and terrible dragons that are chasing her. Everything she does is sped up, and she enters a period in time called ‘Charming-time’ (sorry guys I’m a huge the Flash fan and nerd). Other female Charmings are immune to this. This ability has a ‘cooling’ down period of an hour, so Rebecca can’t keep slowing time down. It is also only activated during tense moments, etc. last minute of a hexamination and she has not finished writing everything (really helpful in this case).
Fairytale - The Princess and the Pea
How the Story Goes
Main article: The Princess and the Pea
To summarize, a prince is trying to get married but is too selective of the suitors. He wants to marry a princess but all of them, who hold the title of 'princesses', fail his expectations of what he deems a princess. One rainy day, a girl arrives at the prince's palace drenched and cold, asking if she could spend the night, claiming she herself is a princess. The family of the prince decides to test her without knowing, inviting her to sleep on 20 mattresses stacked on top of one another, all while putting a pea under those many thick layers. They believe that if she truly is a princess, she would be sensitive enough to feel that one pea. The next day, the girl grumbles of a sleepless night and when the prince hears it, he believes that she is the princess he has been looking for and they are married. Really dumb story, I know, but stupidly one of my favorites because neither Disney nor Barbie have ruined it by creating a movie for either.
How does Rebecca fit into it?
Like every other fairy tale that requires any prince or princess, the existing family (or families, depending on story) procreates a heir that only takes after the role of one of their parents (especially if the role involves some sort of marriage. The generation after that who bears a child has said child take the role of the other destiny. For example, Poppy O' Hair and Holly O' Hair's paternal grandmother was Rapunzel, while the firstborn son (their father) took the role of the prince who eventually met and married the twins' mother who was that generation's Rapunzel (a regular Charming called in, or more like forcibly kidnapped, to fill in the role of Rapunzel). Poppy (the rightful heiress to the destiny, or Holly, depending how you see it)'s first child would have been selected to fill in the role of their grandfather, while the rest would either be reassigned roles in other fairy tales, be background characters in the same fairy tale as their older sibling, or remain destiny-less. Yes, I know it is complicated. Similarly, the current main family unit formed from the Princess and the Pea only has a heir to the role of the prince and thus requires a Charming to step into the shoes of the princess. Rebecca just happens to be the one selected by the Storybook of Legends for it, just her luck.
As for how she came to be, Rebecca's parents, Leia and Jason met each other on a royal cruise hosting various Charming families. This was before the current retelling of the Snow Queen was to take place. Although they both had attended Ever After High, they had never crossed paths before due to a four-year gap. Destiny kind of drew both of them together, and they were pretty enamoured by each other. Jason would be taking on his father's role of the prince who would be mistaken for Kai, while he was still searching for his princess. It would turn out to be that Leia was the princess of destiny for Jason, and the entire wooing process occurred. They dated, eventually married, then settled down in Jason's family castle located in the Featherlands. After carrying out their parts in their generation's retelling of the tale, they purchased a large plot of land in Ever After, nearer to Leia's family clan and Ever After High and had a palace built, which they moved to upon completion. There, they raised a family and eventually, Leia was pregnant with twins once more after giving birth to Timothy and Thomas. Rebecca was then born as the second twin, and being the youngest child of their Charming family unit, subject to a destiny chosen by the Storybook of Legends.
- Not really a parallel, but the irony is that Rebecca is a really good and heavy sleeper, while the princess in the fairy tale sucks at sleeping on a freaking literal pea
- that being said maybe she actually has a bad sleep due to nightmares and not because of the pea (again she rarely, if not never has nightmares, just really weird dreams) and maybe because the mattress has an abnormally weird bump on it
- this is a sign she is not fit for this destiny
- but its low-key been given to her and it's a huge well-known one so she gotta take her chances
- that being said, she has no clue if she should
- It's been implied and stated in various sources and versions that the princess was at/going to some sort of social gathering prior to being stuck in rain (possibly due to carriage being broken down) and like Rebecca loves parties, balls and literally anything with social interaction
- The princess is drenched in rain. Rebecca likes being wet in the rain.
- Another irony: the princess is considered delicate and sensitive. Personality-wise, Rebecca is not exactly...
- the physical sensitivity in the tale is a metaphor for being sensitive and empathetic emotionally so Rebecca kind of 'eh...'s in this area
- Rebecca likes being recognized for being a princess. The princess in the tale insists on being a princess. But again, come on, there are thousands of princesses who like being recognized for being a princess.
- that being said, sometimes she's regarded as some sort of noble lady instead because she doesn't wear a crown or a tiara but has a rather outlandish outfit that seems rich enough
- her motifs are flower motifs. Pretty generic, but displays no sign of crown or royal motifs indicating she's some form of royalty.
- parallels how the princess isn't recognized as a princess because she's not flexing her royal status with a crown or materialistic wealth
- rather unironically, Rebecca has good back posture
- Rebecca gets easily exhausted by overwhelming things. The princess in the story simply accepts the twenty-mattress bed because she's too tired to think or ask for an alternative.
Viewpoint on destiny
Although having signed her page, Rebecca sides as a Roybel in the destiny conflict as she is of the opinion that people should be allowed to write their own destinies and not be defined by who or what role they play in whatever fairy tale. However, she is alright with her own destiny but she does want to choose who she would rather spend the rest of her life with instead of being forced into a marriage as ‘destiny said so’.
Also, she honestly doesn't see a point in repeating the same mistakes again and again. Just get better security service or don't take shortcuts even if you're going to be late!!
What Rebecca's role actually is
Based on the Storybook of Legends, it's kind of obvious that the next retellings are more modern than their parents. Apple White's Happily Ever After is her singing with Daring Charming tagging along with her and being surrounded by adoring fans at a music festival (though the true Storybook of Legends show that it is actually a duet with Darling Charming, we can talk about that later). Rebecca's tale is one with a modern twist to it.
Rebecca's first panel in the Storybook of Legends shows her looking out of the window at a dark and rainy sky. It's generally assumed she's in her carriage-limousine, since there are ornate curtains with details drawn apart to reveal a dark sky and heavy rain. She looks forlornly into the distance. The ball that she was supposed to be attending (and was on her way to, before stuff happened) is said to be the one from Cinderella, for her brother to find a wife, and Rebecca was on the way home from some wonderful holiday elsewhere.
The next panel shifts to a point where the armed robbers rob the car and force the princess to surrender all her valuables and kick her out of the car (gagging and taking the chauffeur with them, because why not). Rebecca has no MirrorPhone and it seems to be in the middle of nowhere, so cold and drenched in the rain, she tries to find shelter.
The third panel reveals the shelter that she has found - there's an old castle not too far away from where she was robbed, and she begs the king and the queen living there to let her spend the night. Both are hesitant, but when she claims she was a princess who was robbed, they oblige, but the queen is not too trusting of that yet, so she devises a test to see if she really is a princess - someone suitable for her son to marry. She places a pea under 20 mattresses and tells the princess to sleep on the top mattress (under the excuse that they simply are, too lazy and it was too troublesome to remove the top mattress and bring it down for her to sleep on given that she's only a temporary guest; I know right: great host manners).
The fourth panel shows Rebecca tossing and turning on the bed because of the pea. Pretty self-explanatory.
The fifth panel skips straight to the ending. With a bad hair's day ahead of her due to not being able to sleep well, Rebecca and her frizzy hair are shocked and pleased by how the prince kneels down to propose, with the other royal family members and servants gathered around celebrating the fact that she's a true princess and their future son/master's bride-to-be. The extra sixth panel shows Rebecca and her future prince as guest stars at the same music festival Apple White is touted to be the leading star in, amongst other ensemble cast members of a musical festival tour comprising of other fairytale characters because why not.
Of course, that doesn't happen in reality, obviously, since she has chosen to be a Roybel!
But in the entirely possible future she chooses to re-live her predecessor's story, everything's fine. The chauffeur is fine, he's not murdered or anything. The robbers are found, arrested and put in prison, and Rebecca is supposed to have a happy fairytale ending with her destined prince and the camera pans out to show the fabled pea in a display case at the Ever After Museum.
Note: Rebecca's parents come from the tale of the Snow Queen! They were the previous prince and princess from the tale, but do not swear any allegiance to the tale itself, other than the fact that one of their children is chosen to be the heir (to one of their roles). In this case, Rebecca is reassigned to another tale, while her brother Thomas will take on the role of the princess (or the prince, however you see it) from their mother (or father, again, however you see it). Like mentioned before, Rebecca's family is from an important Charming clan, the same clan as that of the D!Charmings, so most of their legacies are usually from more commonly known fairytales (etc Daring: Beauty and the Beast, Darling: Snow White, Admirable: Sleeping Beauty, Excellent herself: The Princess and the Pea). Whether or not the role is important, that largely remains debatable...
At the same time, Rebecca's paternal side is descended from the Roman deity Jupiter, King of the Roman Pantheon. This puts Rebecca as a suitable candidate (out of many other hundreds of Charmings) for a role in one of Jupiter's fables, but the Storybook of Legends has selected her for a different role in a more classical fairytale.
Aristocratic Jason Charming
Rebecca's relationship with her father is pretty great. They respect each other's personal space and he does spoil her sometimes. He's a great and supportive father but he leaves most of the family managing to his wife. Not that he is irresponsible...he's just trash at managing in general yet is able to hold on to a respectable important position in the government. Rebecca secretly believes he can't do anything without her mother. Their relationship really, can be described as a father sitting at the breakfast table, drinking coffee, while half-listening to his daughter babble on and on about school (which is technically what happens).
Gorgeous Leia Charming
Rebecca comes from a stable family, so like her father, she's also on close relations with her mother. She loves Leia, and the feeling is reciprocated unconditionally. They really are just an affectionate duo. Her mother also assumes the discipline figure in the house and believes in bringing up the five children upright. When all of them enter their teenage years, she relaxes a bit and takes a backseat, but will still scold Rebecca when needed. Rebecca has gotten used to constant nagging from Leia over the years, so it doesn't really affect her because she knows her mother nags at her for her own good (still doesn't change her mentality though lol). Their relationship is still all hugs and kisses, and Rebecca is extremely grateful for that because she can rely on and trust her mother on anything (except Rebecca's complicated love life emotions and feelings, that is).
Rebecca has come to appreciate Royalle as a twin. Royalle is another support pillar that Rebecca can lean on for strength, warmth, support and comfort in troubling times. They are also regular siblings, squabbling over even the most trivial matter. Doesn't help that they're also as stubborn as mules (both equally). They are really empathetic to each other, and Rebecca acts as a communications bridge between their parents and Royalle (especially when Royalle was in that angsty depression mood for a few years and really closed off and when their parents grounded Royalle for trying to take up Heroics 101 and various other deemed 'un-princess-like' subjects at Ever After High, which led Royalle being even more mad and like refusing to talk to her parents for a while). They love each other, yes.
This doesn't excuse the fact Rebecca is still pissed at Royalle for specially requesting for different classes during their first year at Ever After High in a bid to get Rebecca more active socially (which has developed her personality to what it is today).
Admirable Samuel Charming
Jock, popular. Having a popular brother has benefits. Rebecca doesn't forget that. She loves him as a brother, but sometimes thinks his fame gets to his head, along with immense pride. She disapproves of his secret plan to drop out of school and run away in the future but has promised to keep this secret from their parents until she feels the time is right, which is definitely not now.
Diligent Timothy Charming
Rebecca always found Timothy rather quiet, but he's a good brother. They constantly try to beat each other at Crownculus and go into lengthy and dramatic debates about ridiculous topics such as what actually caused the fall of Grimmany before the Second World War etc etc. over the dinner table. She also grudgingly gives in when she doesn't know a complex equation and has to ask for his help.
At the same time, the relationship between the two could be described as Boomer-esque older brother-younger Gen Z sister relationship (in the sense that his mentality and thinking is like a baby boomer). Rebecca is street-smart and socially savvy, but on the contrary, doesn't understand a lot of gaming mechanics and being a nerd in general. Timothy fills this gap for her, with him teaching her a lot about the MirrorNet and a lot of gaming stuff.
On the other hand, Rebecca tries to micro-manage his social status and his personal image for him, because he absolutely sucks at doing so. At the same time, even though Timothy is older, Rebecca loves to criticize everything about him just to be annoying. Rest assured they still love each other.
One thing Rebecca will never understand with Timothy is his passion for design interfaces and aesthetics, along with his uncanny talent of calligraphy (stuff that are usually considered 'more for girls' except for Rebecca and Royalle lol) and usage of digital media to create bookmarks, wallpapers, you got it. Besides Royalle, Rebecca would probably consider Timothy as her second closest sibling.
Honestly if you think about it you need diligence to get excellence.
WOAH MIND BLOWN
Charismatic Thomas Charming
Ultimate jock failure and doesn't really care about him at all. They respect each other's space but sometimes, Rebecca wonders what is going on with him. He's not as charismatic as he seems, not to her at least. She believes his wooing skills are terrible and that he may or may not have stolen some love potions from Baba Yaga to make girls swoon over him.
They both love shoes, especially those with hexquisite designs! The more intricate the better. Ashlynn and Rebecca are also Beast Training and Care partners and shop together at Book End every weekend. They also help out at the local Book End animal sanctuary together. Basically, a lot of together stuff.
Rebecca has always been fascinated by this Cheshire cat. She loves the fact that she disappears with a smile and plays the most annoying yet lame pranks on others. She's intrigued by Kitty's antics, to the point that one day she randomly climbed a tree Kitty was napping on to make small talk with her. That's literally how their relationship started. They are occasional Beast Training and Care partners, and they both love just lazing on trees.
The Winter family are on close ties with Rebecca's family, for the Snow King and Aristocratic Charming were extremely good friends during their younger days (since Becca's parents were from the same fairytale as his future wife). When the Snow King visits the world below, the Winter family would usually stay at a few choice places, one of them including Rebecca's Charming Clan's palace. Rebecca saw Crystal whenever the Winters visited, and they would have lots of fun together playing with snow (along with Rebecca's siblings) and just exploring the castle grounds while their parents were hosting administrative council meetings with other fairytales. At one point, people have remarked how similar Crystal and Rebecca look in terms of their hairstyles (that is, when Rebecca unties her ponytail), partly due to the fact that Rebecca's hairstyle was inspired by Crystal's and Crystal didn't mind. They have good laughs over how if Crystal changes the colour of lights reflecting off her rather shiny hair to Rebecca's hair colour, people might mistake Crystal for Rebecca. Rebecca is a huge fan of Crystal's ice magic, and they both have extreme fun when they go out together doing all kinds of wild stuff. When Crystal is at The Top of the World, Crystal and Rebecca maintain a pen-pal relationship over traditional letters and hext messages.
Things initially started good for the both of them. Darling first met Rebecca when they were seven years old at the annual Charming gala, at that time held during Christmas. Because of the vast number of Charming families invited, Rebecca never met Darling (or her brothers for that matter, despite the fact that Darling and Rebecca's mother are cousins, all the more reason to not have met before) before. During those five hours of that one night, Rebecca had tons of fun with Darling and were pretty much elated to discover they were going to the same spellementary school the next fall. They promised to keep in contact with each other.
Promises can be broken, obviously.
Long story short, although they enrolled in the same spellementary school, Darling and Rebecca's original classes the first three years were starkly different classes, and they rarely saw each other. They also didn't meet during the Charming galas the years that followed, because like aforementioned, all Charmings are invited; hence an extremely large number of Charmings attend the party. They pretty much forgot the other's existence. During their third year, however, they both were invited to be in the school's Muse-ic choir as their hextra-curricular activity. Darling and Rebecca were at long last reunited, but Rebecca thought it was a great idea to start calling Darling an aunt (and her brothers, uncles, respectively). Dexter and Daring didn't particularly mind, but Darling was pretty annoyed. Every time Rebecca saw Darling she'd always run around and tackle Darling in a hug or be annoying in some cute (ugly but adorable) other way. Darling found this increasingly annoying, especially when they were in the same throneroom for the remaining years of their spellementary school life.
At Ever After High, they still shared a wide variety similar classes, and Darling still wasn't on the best of terms with Rebecca. However, Rebecca wished to become friends again with Darling, and with Royalle's help, they managed to repair their relationship by their Yearbook Year. Now they just talk about anything under the sun and partner up occasionally for projects in their shared classes. Rebecca has come to learn how to respect Darling's space, while Darling has learnt to understand her niece and appreciate her the way she is.
Rebecca admires Jillian a lot, so when Jilli
Addy and Rebecca first met in Kingdom Management due to sitting next to each other and being project partners for a lot of KM projects. They have also met at other social gatherings, in the hallways, in the Castleteria and Book End, which led to quite a bunch of interactions between the two and they definitely have known a lot more about each other from when they first started as acquaintances. They bond over a lot of relatable topics and have loads of interesting and somewhat questionable ideas during Kingdom Management, such as discussing various ideas for castles, including a bouncy one with a lake, and ridiculous conversations over just about anything. They occasionally also go and join Briar's hextreme sports together, whereby the outcomes and experiences always end up rather surprising.
Rebecca first met Ratthew when Royalle was competing in dragon racing and the competitors were preparing to go into the arena. Backstage, Royalle had already acquainted herself with Ratthew (and several others) and so when Rebecca walked in behind the scenes, Royalle was engaging in a conversation with said competitors (probably talking about how it was going to be a friendly race, blah blah). Rebecca naturally joins in and gets to know Ratthew (and some of the others). Over time, they will continually meet at other races, Book End and several other events and social gatherings and build a close friendship. When Rebecca finds out that he is also studying at Ever After High, she is instantly excited and immediately contacts him. They maintain this friendship throughout, and share a lot of inter-level classes, projects and programs. Rebecca looks up to him like a big brother because of thinking him to be a role model and his dedication to his passions and loves him (platonic way).
At some point, she probably did have a crush on him though. And I oop- (no worries guys it faded off quickly as an infatuation and she still hasn't told him yet).
How they met was completely unprecedented. Rebecca was for some reason awake at twelve midnight and decided to break curfew by going out on the first night of the school year. She literally bumped into Destiny, and got half-scared to death but once Destiny introduced herself and Rebecca realised what Destiny was doing, she insisted on tagging along too. They got to know each other as they went around, almost getting caught by Headmaster Grimm in the process, and in the morning agreed to meet up for breakfast in the Castleteria.
There, they got to know each other more, and they shared giggles over how students were talking about how they received gifts outside their rooms. more tba
Future destined Prince
Their relationship is more like that grey area between being friends and acquaintances. They get along great on a platonic level but that's about it. They have different interests and mostly different class-ics, hence Rebecca doesn't really see them much (starting to see a bit more often because of the discovery of her destiny and their parents trying to make contacts but still, not really). They share the same viewpoints about their destiny and they more or less have mutually agreed to just stay friends after that one night Rebecca spends on the 20-mattress bed (should that happen, of course).
Rebecca first meets Olympia when they were assigned to be Creative Storytelling partners for a term, but later finds out Olympia is friends with Royalle. They see each other occasionally, but that's about it. They did do a great project though which helped Rebecca secure a huge chunk of the 25% weightage in her term assignment and she has to credit some of the good ideas for it to Olympia.
Rebecca as an originally aligned Royal didn't really have that much interaction with Raven but being fascinated by her powers, sought to get to know her. Becca has always been in awe of Raven and what she has done, so Royalle one day introduced Raven to Becca. Now and then, they'll bump into each other in the hallways and when they do, they'll chat a bit but because they don't really share any similar classes aside from Muse-ic, they're not very close but Becca hopes that she'd get to know Raven more some day.
Rebecca very easily forgives and forgets, because she finds no point in holding a grudge. Maybe people who find her annoying, but really, she can't consider anyone an enemy though?
Rebecca has a pet shihtzu that is utterly adorable. More like a family pet, but Rebecca spends the most time with it. Its name, surprisingly and unsurprisingly, as well as boringly and unboringly, is Fluffy. Fluffy spends its days at Ever After High in the care of the different Charmings on different days, but everyone has to admit Fluffy adores Rebecca the most and always clings on to her when Thomas comes to pick Fluffy up (Hmm, is there something I'm not getting here?).
During Animal Calling, a phoenix answered Rebecca's call. It was pretty violent and aggressive at first, but eventually, Rebecca managed to soothe and calm it down. She names it Peace. Later, it is revealed that the phoenix is a male, and is the mate of Ashlynn's own phoenix, Sandella. They're pretty cute together, so Ashlynn and Rebecca will occasionally bring the two phoenixes out on a nature walk together while they discuss the most fashionable shoes that have arrived in light of the new season trend at The Glass Slipper.
Rebecca identifies as heteroromantic, always dreaming of finding the ideal prince (or whatever guy that sweeps her off her feet or something).
Alex and Rebecca go way back. The moment Rebecca met him and looked at his blue eyes, she fell for him...hard. That's saying something given that she was eight when she first met him. They attended the same spellementary school, different thronerooms. They would continuously meet time and time again, on an almost constant weekly basis due to attending the same singular class, and every time Rebecca would try to get closer to him. This deep crush that she harboured was immense but as Becca grew older, she was unsure if this was a mere deep infatuation or actual romantic feelings. Thus, over time, she tried to force herself to stop liking him. It was hard, given that she had very strong affections for him. She kept it a good secret for four years, but the year before she was to enter Ever After High, she told her sister about her secret crush on this 'oh so wonderful boy'.
Amazingly, Royalle had a big mouth and told Alex. Rebecca freaked out after realising what her sister had done and on the very night that Royalle told Alex, she could not sleep at all. The coming days and weeks that occurred after that was remarkably awkward. Rebecca chose to distance herself from Alex for fear of making things awkward, especially with how awkward the revelation itself was. They were still friends in the sense that Rebecca would talk to Alex if it was something practical like thronework, or if some friends asked them to go out, but Rebecca tried to close herself off and not bring up the topic of the very obvious not-so-secret crush she had on Alex. Soon, they both graduated and Rebecca decided to put the past behind her when she went to Ever After High.
To her secret delight and horror, Alex managed to enrol at Ever After High. It was awkward for a while. They shared more classes. Rebecca saw him as often. It was hard for Rebecca not to do anything, but she wanted to spend time with him again. What she didn't know was that Alex actually had some sort of feelings for her, but when Royalle told Alex it came as some sort of shock and surprise, which made him rather confused about his feelings towards her. Eventually, one day, Alex couldn't really take it anymore and asked Rebecca to sit with him and a group of friends at the Castleteria. To this day, Rebecca and Alex have discreetly made it a point not to bring it up, and try and remain as friends, which Rebecca graciously is appreciative for.
After a long period of time, before Legacy Day, Alex asks Rebecca out on a date. They enjoy that date and decide that they'll let things go naturally by themselves and see what the future has in store for both of them. They don't really consider themselves an official couple, but they're probably more intimate than they were as normal friends.
P.S. Rebecca still has not mentioned or brought up that time that Royalle told Alex nor has she made an effort to try and ask him what he felt after because she herself feels confused about her growing affections for him.
Regardless how their relationship goes, Rebecca still appreciates Alex a lot and hopes to remain friends with him.
|Signature - Roybels/First Chapter: Rebecca for her First Chapter ties her hair into a simple high ponytail, letting her hair loose at the sides. She wears a long red robe, with long sleeves reaching to her mid-elbow and loads of green embroidery on the hems and purple embroidery on the base part of the jacket. She wears a spaghetti strap blue dress with patterns of colourful flowers on it and ends off with turquoise lace and purple ‘tassels’ (symbolism of curtains in bedrooms). She also wears black fishnet stockings, and her blue shoes are simply designed with the main feature being three turquoise crystal diamonds adorning the shoe in the shape of a flower. She wears extensive jewellery, with the beads unconsciously (prior to learning what her destiny was) representing peas and these green beads are a common motif in her First Chapter. Her robe is secured with a golden ribbon jewelled belt that is tied to the back.
If someone knows how to describe this better please DM me on discord lol
|TBA||Legacy Day: Because Rebecca is a Charming and thus does not know her destiny (at first), along with the fact that Royalle is the older twin sister between the two, Rebecca does not inherit her mother's Legacy Day dress and instead, gets a custom one. Unlike most Legacy Day dresses, which are rather outlandish in nature with a high-low element, Rebecca's dress is a simple, thin, dress in nature which is modelled after her First Chapter outfit. It can be considered a more formal version of her First Chapter outfit, but at the same time also serves as inspiration for her future Royally Ever After outfit (some say it's made from the same fabric *shrugs*).|

- Excellent Charming's diary
- Rebecca is my official-unofficial baptism name and I always thought it was a cool name, so
- my name starts with E, so I picked Excellent for Becca's name (also because that was the first word I thought of whenever we did the name poem thing)
- because of complicated family lines Rebecca's mother is a direct cousin of the D!Charming triplets, hence she considers Daring, Darling and Dexter her uncles and aunt, most of the time literally because of immature ways (Darling puts on a half-embarrassed-mother-like smile whenever Rebecca is around her)
- don't worry though by their Classic Year Darling and Rebecca are actually really close friends
- Rebecca is an ENFP-T, based on the sixteen personalities, and is thus a Campaigner
- On the other hand, for the Enneagram test, she is a Type 7 - an Enthusiast.
- In the Hogwarts Sorting System, Rebecca would be in Slytherin
- Rebecca's fashion inspiration is very heavily inspired by Aramina from Barbie and the Three Musketeers
- Rebecca is the 7th person to take after the role of the princess in The Princess and the Pea, and the 8th princess in general
- mini fun fact: when the driver was 15 and 16, her register number on the class namelist was eight!!
- it's also generally assumed that Raven's Legacy Year is 2013, and with the first telling of the story occurring in 1835, seven generations (and re-tellings) of Pea Princesses (as what said princesses who take on the role are called) have passed, which makes Rebecca the eighth inheritor to the role
- Rebecca is considered by the driver as basically the fashion model for all the clothes the driver wanted to wear, but were too frivolous for the driver to actually wear
- The ship name between Becca and Alex is AlEx, 很大脑筋, I know.
- the unofficial ship name is Charmingly Uncharming (because the original ship name sounds very self-serving)
- other names include Alecca, Excellander, Alexcellent idk
- Other probable fairytales for Rebecca included The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Three Princes and their Beasts and Cinderella.
- Initially, the driver had a separate OC for the Princess and the Pea, but the driver eventually realised that the other OC had similar dress styles to Becca, so the driver waved adios to that OC and just simply slotted in Rebecca for this role.
- Rebecca initially has no clear motifs in her clothing, but progressively it can be noted there is some sort of pea motif subtly thrown into her outfits (my lazy excuse for running out of pattern ideas)
- Rebecca, in some ways, could, be driver's EAHsona.
- Becca likes reading other people's names out loud. She loves discovering new names, how they sound when pronounced out loud, what they mean, what fablelous puns they contain and any hidden meanings.
- She stalks people's feeds on Princetagram when she's bored. Period.
- She adores details, but isn't very meticulous herself.
- Rebecca is multi-lingual, predominantly speaking English, Grimman, Pennish and a bit of French and Spanish.
- Rebecca has both roots in Grimmany and Penmark. Her mother's side hails from Grimmany, and majority of the Charmings are selected for roles in Grimms' Fairytales.
- Her father's side hails from Penmark and likewise, majority of the Charmings are selected for roles in Hans Christian Andersen's fairytales.
- In real world terms, Rebecca would hail from Copenhagen, capital of Denmark
- a parallel to how the old Charming clan that Jason hails from owns main properties and castles in the Ever After High equivalent, Co-pen-hag-en in Penmark
- why out of all cities specifically Copenhagen? It's the capital, thus the most populous city of Denmark. In Northern Europe, it's the closest thing to the vibrant urban city life of jazzy and glitzy places such as New York City in America or even Beijing in China. Rebecca likes a mix of both.
- Rebecca considers herself a mentally 'strong' person, but for some reason whenever confronted about anything serious for a duration of longer than ten minutes she will start tearing up even if she didn't do anything.
- Rebecca, for all the amount of nonsense she can spew out of her mouth at one go, is a soprano. She's admittedly good at breath control.
- After Legacy Day, Rebecca and Royalle's room was moved to one of the towers to prepare Rebecca for her destiny, per coercion from Headmaster Grimm for all students who just learnt of their destinies after Legacy Day in a bid to 'control the dangerous situation Raven Queen had placed them under'. The very first night, Rebecca stepped into her new room and found herself staring at twenty mattresses stacked on top one after another on her bed. Their room had an extremely high ceiling to accommodate all the mattresses, which was why they had to be moved to a tower dorm room. Rebecca was pretty elated, but eventually, she got bored of climbing up and down four levels worth of mattresses and made a compromise with Headmaster Grimm to swap the traditional twenty-mattress bed to a state-of-the-art magic-and-technology infused contraption that with some input from the owner, could generate a bed with *blank* number of mattresses, duvets, blankets and pillows, all customized to the owner's desire, sponsored by her family, of course.
- Although Rebecca now just sleeps on a three-mattressed bed, they still stay in the tower because it's pretty much an assigned room.
- They are tower-mates with Holly and Poppy O' Hair. Their rooms are located next to each other.
- It's pretty tiring to walk up daily, even just to get supplies or thronework they left in their rooms. Thus, both the O' Hair and Charming families have collectively sponsored a travellator to take them to the top instead to save the energy needed for walking.
- Rebecca finds it weird to stare up and see an extremely high ceiling that seems so far away. It's pretty unnerving.
- Rebecca follows people on Princetagram just to see if they would follow back. However, every few couple of months she would unfollow those who have historically never shared any classes or thronerooms with her.
