"...I.. what? I don't.. have any scars."

-Goldilocks' response from the spoiled kids remark.

Goldilocks is a main character in Everafter. She appears in the later pages of Everafter, she originates from the fairy tale, The Story of the Three Bears.


Goldilocks appeares when Iggy guides a rich family around and tells them about her. The spoiled daughter kept asking to her why she had those scratches on her face but Goldi denied that she had any. Then headnurse Edda interrupted and took Goldi away to her big evaluation with Professor Cricket.

While she walked in the corridors she thought about returning to home to her family. Then she encountered her friend Pinocchio and talked with him about the evaluation. After the conversation Pinocchio gave Goldi his Lucky Charm.


Goldilocks comes from the fairytale The Story of the Three Bears. In Southey's tale, three anthropomorphic bears – "a Little, Small, Wee Bear, a Middle-sized Bear, and a Great, Huge Bear" – live together in a house in the woods. Southey describes them as very good-natured, trusting, harmless, tidy, and hospitable. Each bear has his own porridge bowl, chair, and bed. One day they take a walk in the woods while their porridge cools. An old woman (who is described at various points in the story as impudent, bad, foul-mouthed, ugly, dirty and a vagrant deserving of a stint in the House of Correction) discovers the bears' dwelling. She looks through a window, peeps through the keyhole, and lifts the latch. Assured that no one is home, she walks in. The old woman eats the Wee Bear's porridge, then settles into his chair and breaks it. Prowling about, she finds the bears' beds and falls asleep in Wee Bear's bed. The climax of the tale is reached when the bears return. Wee Bear finds the old woman in his bed and cries, "Somebody has been lying in my bed, – and here she is!" The old woman starts up, jumps from the window, and runs away never to be seen again.
