Welcome to the OUAN Wiki

The OUAN Site Wiki is a labor of love created by the current members of OUAN for the future members of OUAN. Our goal is to make the canon history of our site as easy to peruse and learn as possible for those of you who wish to join our family. Within you can find everything from species to characters to members to canon tales and so much more.

WE ARE IN BETA TESTING RIGHT NOW. ALTHOUGH 99% OF THE WIKI IS DONE, WE ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF FACT CHECKING, PROOFREADING, AND COMPLETING A FEW EXTRA PAGES AS WE REALIZE THAT WE NEED TO MAKE THEM. Please excuse our mess. If you find empty pages, we are working on filling them post haste. If you find conflicting information, we are working on making our facts align across pages and we would be happy to tell you which piece of conflicting information is correct. We apologize for any confusion, with luck Beta Testing will be over the and the Wiki will be 100% done shortly.

THANK YOU!

The Labyrinth is a 1986 motion picture created by Jim Henson, Brian Froud, and George Lucas. With a budget of $25 million, it was considered a box office failure at the time of its release. It has since become a cult classic with a large fan following which spans magazines, tributes, and a manga prequel to the movie.

To adapt Labyrinth to Once Upon a Nightmare, it was determined that it would best work by combining it with the tale of Rumpelstiltskin. The mischievous imp who tricks the Miller's Daughter out of her first born child in exchange for spinning hay into gold seemed like a perfect combination with Jareth the King of the Goblin Court. Similarly, it was decided that Sarah Williams and the Miller's Daughter were also a good match and that the Prince from Rumpelstiltskin could easily be one of the cursed residents of the Labyrinth.

Canon Tale



Sarah Williams was a desperate young woman who wanted to find a way to better her life. When she made the agreement with the Goblin King, she didn't understand the cost of his magical assistance. In return for spinning straw into gold and bettering her life as a refugee following the destruction of Ga'leah by the Blight, she would be sacrificing her stepbrother to a life of slavery as a Changeling in Allutheria. She did not understand this…until the night he was taken. Frightened and determined to rescue him, she set off on a mission to infiltrate the Labyrinth and defy the Goblin King with the assistance of a knight, a goblin, and a cursed creature of the Labyrinth.

Ludo was once the son of the Evil Queen of Calladahn. Though his mother loved him, she sacrificed him to the Goblin King in exchange for the power she would need to crown herself Queen of Calladahn. Fathered by the Hunstman, his wolfen inheritance showed itself when he was marked as a Changeling and he transformed into a great beast. Now kept as a guard dog with his beastial form invoked at the Goblin King’s will, Ludo needs a miracle to save him from his nightmarish existence.

The Goblin King was not always called Jareth. Jareth was a name he selected for himself the day he crowned himself King of the Goblins. The Labyrinth was once the site of the mighty Court of the Bull, until the warring courts of Allutheria created the Goblins as a biological weapon that could level the court and perhaps destroy all of Allutheria as well. The Labyrinth was constructed to cage the Goblins. Everyone else had written off the creatures as useless now that their job was done, but not the Goblin King. He saw them as a force of power and destruction that he learned to control with promises of beauty bought with the youth of the adolescents he enslaved as Changelings. He was once Rumpelstiltskin, a Fae who made deals to acquire children he could use to increase his own power. But when a Fae is cursed to be controlled by anyone who knows his name, it is in the Fae’s best interest to change that name, his appearance, and perhaps his whole identity to avoid such unpleasantness. And thus, the Goblin King was born…
