Initial Class: Marshal

A prideful young girl who exaggeratedly talks and acts like a rich lady. She has a tendency to lose track of what she says when speaking with Jack.

Despite this, Cinderella has sudden mood bursts at times and is actually very modest. She also gets easily depressed when she's called out, thinks she may have worried someone or when somebody attacks her "mask". This also happens when she loses any part of her clothing and starts thinking she is nothing but a useless and ugly human. It also seems she's not used to being praised by others.

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.
