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!

Beauty and the Beast is a much beloved French fairy tale written by French novelist Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont and published in 1756. This popular tale was told throughout Europe in a plethora of variations, and has been adapted into a television series, movies, and a Disney animated and live action feature.

For Once Upon a Nightmare, to maximize interaction between tales and make this adaption of Beauty and the Beast unique, it was decided to utilize the selfish and spoiled Mordred of Arthurian mythology as the Beast of this tale.

Canon Tale



Mordred, the illegitimate son of the High King of Ga'leah was brought up by his mother, Morgana, to be consumed by his own desires. Selfish, treacherous, unkind, he ran afoul of one of the Pantheon just before the beginnings of the plagues that now run rampant throughout the kingdoms. Transformed into a beastly creature whose outward appearance directly reflects the monstrosity of his soul, he was abandoned by his mother to their countryside home in Dokrayth where the shame of his current condition would not be discovered by anyone in Caerleon. But Mordred was her son, and so Morgana provided him with a cursed staff whose often shocking conditions were caused by her experimentation with magic.

Belle was a young woman who lived in the one remaining settlement in Dokrayth, the town of Aeswick. The small community managed to survive the Walking Starvation by working together and protecting the town to the best of their ability. What food they managed to find was scavenged in the Yarrow located very near the village. Belle had been tasked with foraging for food and herbs in the surrounding countryside. Her explorations brought her closer and closer to the abandoned castle Mordred commandeered and shored up against attack. Taken prisoner by Mordred, she was forced to remain by his side even after the Beast's castle was destroyed by the Blight.

Forced to relocate, the Beast kept Belle his prisoner, leading her away from the Blight ravaged land of Dokrayth to the kingdom of Xehacora where he and his mother once had a home he frequented when human. Bound by the magic worked upon them by Morgana, his servants too found themselves drawn to follow their master to Xehacora and continue serving whatever dastardly plans the man may have in mind.
