Storybrooke character: Leroy
Fairytale Land character: Grumpy
Fairytale origin based on: Snow White and the Huntsman / Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
Grumpy was originally born in Fairytale Land where all dwarves are born: in a special pod where they are groomed to become hard workers in the mines. Upon conception, each dwarf got a magical pick axe which told them their names as soon as they held it. Grumpy was originally named Dreamy.
Dreamy met and fell in love with a sweet fairy-in-training named Nova. But the Fairy Godmother and Bossy the dwarf tell Dreamy that dwarves cannot fall in love. They are built to work, and Nova is meant to be a fairy godmother one day.
Brokenhearted, he returns home to his seven brothers and looksfor his magical axe, but it breaks when he tries to use it. Bossy gives him a brand new axe, but the new name inscribed on it is Grumpy.
In Storybrooke, Leroy is an unhappy drunk who harbors a secret crush on Sister Astrid/Nova (Amy Acker).
