A fearsome creature. If you were to look into her eyes, she would turn you into stone.

Medusa is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. She débuts, with her only appearance, in the tenth episode of the third season.

Medusa is based on a Gorgon with the same name from the Perseus myth from Greek Mythology.

History

Before First Curse

Medusa lives in a cavern near the old Summer Palace of the Enchanted Forest. She gains a notorious reputation as a creature who can turn anyone into stone if the person looks straight into her eyes. One day, she chases two intruders, Snow White and Prince Charming, after they purposely enter into her home. While Prince Charming goads Medusa into coming after him, Snow White hides in wait to cut off her head. Surprisingly, the sword has no effect on Medusa and she entraps Prince Charming, forcing him to meet her gaze, and thus transforming him into a stone statue. Medusa goes after Snow White next, but is tricked into meeting her own reflection and immobilizing herself into stone. From her own downfall, Prince Charming is freed. ("The New Neverland")
