Widow LucasEdit

Widow Lucas, simply referred to as Granny, is the grandmother of Red Riding Hood. She is very protective of Red, insisting that Red always wear her cloak and preventing her from going out when it is dark. She also disapproves of Red's relationship with Peter. When a wolf starts killing villagers, Granny warns the others that the wolf is a monster; she tells them that when she was a girl, a wolf killed her father and her brothers and then bit her before it walked away. Red and Snow White come to believe Peter is the wolf, and they trick Granny so Red can chain Peter and spend the night with him. Granny discovers the deception and reveals that Red inherited the family curse and is actually the wolf. Granny received the red cloak from a wizard, who enchanted it so that it prevents Red's transformation. Granny herself became a wolf when Red's grandfather turned her into a wolf after marking her with a bite and later finding her. The other aspects of the curse faded with age, but she has kept her heightened senses. By the time Granny and Snow find Red, she has already killed Peter. They throw the cloak over Red, and Granny urges the pair to run and escape the hunters after the wolf. The pair are later seen helping Snow rescue Prince Charming, and much later they help determine the best way to fight the Evil Queen and her curse.


In Storybrooke, she is only known as Granny and is the owner of Granny's Inn and Granny's Cafe and is the grandmother of Ruby. Her health problems prevent Ruby from leaving town. Their relationship is hostile as Granny disapproves of Ruby's behavior and sexually provocative attire. Ruby becomes tired of her grandmother telling her what to do and quits her job. Ruby eventually returns and apologizes to her grandmother, who tells her that she was making Ruby work so hard because she wanted her to take over the Cafe. Granny's memories are returned at the same time as Ruby's.
