Description

A very curious and intelligent girl, she loves researching the environment and people around her, but what doesn’t interest her is met with a lack of emotion. She has a habit of speaking without moral views.

She seems to hold an interest towards Jack, viewing him as a good-natured person. Because Gretel lacks common sense, she often makes quite frank and weird remarks at the other girls around Jack which make them cringe, but she seems fine with that, and may even enjoy their reactions. She also likes manipulating people on a certain level, such as managing to make Rapunzel give most of her candies to her.
