Despite his duty to his people and the threat against his mother's life, Charming couldn't forget about his love for Snow White. Even when King George forced her to lie and say she didn't love him, he couldn't give up. Defying his father, Prince Charming called off his wedding to Abigail and rode out to find his true love, his father's guards hot on his heels. He was rescued for a time by Abigail, who herself was in love with another man. Her true love, Frederick, had been one of her father's knights before he had been accidentally turned to gold while protecting King Midas. In gratitude for her help, Charming faced the deadly siren of Lake Nostos and used some of the lake's enchanted water to restore Frederick to his human form.
