The Little Mermaid is the title character of the fairy-tale by Hans Christian Andersen and an Everafter who lives in the river next to Ferryport Landing.

The Problem Child[]

In "The Problem Child," Sabrina, Daphne, and Jake meet her in the bottom of the Hudson River during their search for the pieces of the Vorpal Blade. As Daphne quickly discovers, her story did not end with "happily ever after" as the prince of her story left her for another woman. She never recovered from her heartbreak and developed a binge eating disorder, leading to her becoming further depressed and volatile. Jake flirts with her in order to obtain the piece of the sword, to which she responds happily until Daphne makes a comment about thinking her story was romantic (she had seen the movie) that enrages the mermaid leader. She orders that the three Grimms to be fed to the Cruel Crustacean, a huge crab that nearly kills them.


The Little Mermaid, being a princess, is very bossy and often contradicts her own wishes. For example, she orders one of her servants to bring her cake, even though she had previously commanded him to not feed her snacks. She then has him fed to the Cruel Crustacean. Similarly to the Queen of Hearts, she sees execution as the solution to her troubles with other people. However, it’s implied this is more due to her binge-eating disorder than it is actual malice, as said disorder stems from the depression and anger of how her story ended. In spite of this, she seems to cling onto the delusion that she is in “better shape” than her ex and has noticeably gained an ego that was stroked when the Grimms charmed her.

Physical Description[]

The Little Mermaid, though overweight, is still described as a beauty with flowing red hair and blue eyes. She wears a seashell top, a pearl studded tiara and a turquoise sarong.
