Ada Nieves (Born Adele Nieves) is a 2014 introduced all round character that is currently a student at Ever After High. Ada is the daughter of Snow-White from Snow White and Rose Red.Ada is a rebel, mainly because she's against most of the "Grimm Regime " and likes the idea of causing trouble - even if she's pretty stoked to rule one of Ever After's minor powers in the future and really that conflict is redundant now.
While to most, Ada is overconfident and generally unpleasant, she does have some fractional signs of "token princessy niceness" (as she calls it) which is often shown to those who give her any sort of positive attention, her subjects, friends and her aunt's family especially. When acting in this way, she has been described to be witty, entertaining with a rather dark sense of humour that stems from her love of debauchery and the misery of people she doesn't like. She's an avid fan of black comedies and it shows. In her friendships, Ada tends to take (or usurp) the role of the leader, the mother, protecting those she trusts and cares about and expects nothing less than loyalty in return.
She enjoys listening to and performing music, and is a quite skilled drummer. Ada tends to get along with musicians as she enjoys the attention she receives through exchanging critiques and discussions regarding different tastes in music.
Ada suffers from narcissistic personality disorder, which as one can infer from the condition, means that she is phenomenally self-obsessed, or narcissistic. Ada believes that she is above everyone else, and that her needs should prioritise the needs of others. Needless to say, due to her lack of empathy for others and sense of pitifully limited self-awareness regarding her condition, she isn't very popular. Ada is stubborn and argumentative, and holds a sort of "my way or the highway" attitude to most conflicts. A lot of these overwhelmingly negative aspects are really a result of her status and privilege, while in actuality she's a C-list princess at best, the people who have raised her to be a spoiled brat have unintentionally convinced her otherwise to compensate for the absence of her parents when she was growing up. Really, at her worst, she's all the negative traits of your standard princess on steroids.
Ada will not get involved with any conflict, whether this be one of the surreal complications that occur during major school events or petty squabbles between friends unless it would affect her in some way. She has often said that she enjoys spectating drama and finds it "hilarious." Ada is also a reckless flirt and will attempt to charm somebody simply for fun, though she can use her skills to manipulate a situation in her favour.
Similar to her mother, Ada spends a lot of her time reading, especially when at home. Despite this, she often dismisses this hobby as a "time waster" and tends to avoid her family's vast library of classic literature for various young adult novels of...questionable quality.She adores shopping and tends to drag her friends around Book End looking for various things for her to construct outfits with - taking an interest in acting as a stylist for herself and her friends. Really, she's pleased by anything relatively "girly".
Ada is obsessed with music, similar to the likes of her friends, and attends weekly drum kit lessons to improve her skills. She was formerly the drummer and leading lyricist for the Cursed Fairytales, her punk-pop project with Abigail Thief and Narcissa Demonic. She likes to consider herself as the manager and "face" of the band - though considering the group were relatively underground during the entirety of their career, this wasn't exactly true.
Ada also spends some of her time gym-hopping, mostly out of a constant need to maintain a consistent "flawless" image.
One of the most significant aspects of Ada's appearance is her height - she's quite tall, peaking at 5'9 - this mostly accountable by her long legs and athletic build. Her skin is a light beige colour. Ada has a rather round, "sweetheart" shaped face with hazel-coloured eyes and a beauty spot just above her lip. Her hair is naturally black, though she has bleached it to a platinum blonde.
The Nieves family (of German/Colombian decent) are a family of C-List royals in Ever After, as they are eclipsed by the prestigious and beloved White family. This leads to the family being rather bitter towards fellow royals and often happy to stay within the bounds of their small kingdom. The family's overall relationship is one of distance, sure, her parents love their lone child, but they seem to be very disinterested.
Ada is closer to the Rosen family (her aunt - Rilla "Rose Red", uncle and cousin) than her mother and father because of how they contrast with the sterile, distant nature of her parents. Rilla and her husband are very much in a loving marriage, with her cousin - let's call her Ruby - being the product of said marriage. They tend to be warm and welcoming towards Ada and family and while their tolorance for her behaviour is limited, she loves them unconditionally.
Mother - Winola Nieves Edit
Ada doesn't really feel much of anything towards her mother, outside of appreciation towards her sense of fashion and acting skills. She's basically her incubator and bank. That's it. Winola doesn't seem all that bothered about her either.
Father - Berowalt Nieves Edit
Berowalt often pushes Ada to stick to the family destiny and protect the little territory the Nieves-Rosen family still control - this is the main subject of any and all conversation between father and daughter, other than the frequent lectures about Ada's behaviour at school. This creates a rift between Ada and Berowalt, as she sees him as an 'old fart' more interested in controlling everyone around him. She doesn't see the irony of this.
Grandmother - Nadja Nieves Edit
Aunt - Rilla Rosen Edit
Rila quite likes Ada, almost as much as her own daughter, and is enthusiastic about the cousins' various projects and hobbies. Ada doesn't mind her either, at least someone's supportive of what she's doing.
Cousin - Ruby Rosen Edit
Ada quite likes Ruby, mostly because she's a pretty good sidekick. Both girls share a love of reality shows, music, and bad literature. Though she sees Ruby as more of an asset, a vessel for her own schemes than anything else.
In her approach to friendship, Ada tends to prefer the company of royalty, much like herself. Whilst she does does have her cousin and Kurt as royal company; most of the other Ever After High royals seem to want nothing to do with her because of her treatment of the people around her. Though, at this point any and all requirements tend to be: a good sense of humour, a love of music and a tolerance for partying.
When she is fortunate enough to have friends or be part of a group, Ada likes to have a sense of control or leadership, she is protective and can be quite sweet when the need arises. While she doesn't really say it, she cherishes and feels quite grateful to those who stick around.
Abigail Thief Edit
Ada doesn't really know why she wastes her time hanging out with someone she knows is a "street rat", maybe it's the alluring charm of Abi's accent.
Abi and Ada's rather "punk pop" sensibilities act as the basis to their friendship. They tend to collaborate on songwriting - with the thief composing and the princess writes the lyrics - and causing any and all forms of anarchy within the school that they can get away with (which, really is not much and they tend to end up in detention anyway). When the two were younger, around 15/16. they acted as each other's "party buddies" (and unreliable designated drivers) and Ada cherishes the memories of them spending that time together. The girls also are brought together by their adventurous spirits, and while Ada would rather go to a camping site and try to fish by a safe lake than go and migrate to the depths of the Enchanted Forest, the two often talk about their experiences with living in the wilderness or general survival skills.
While Ada knows that Abi is trying to move on from her debauchery inspired phase, and that her grandual decline into someone who is more reserved and anxious at the sight of adventure or anarchy, Ada tends to encourage Abi to continue to embrace her inner punk (even if its at a concentrated level), citing her profession as a thief and the rather unlawful nature of the activity. She has a habit with being hard on the robber girl regarding list, she believes its for her "own good"
Narcissa Demonic Edit
Ada and Narcissa are two people of few words, while the pair actively recognise each other as friends, they have trouble with finding things to say to each other, Ada thinks she's quite funny, especially when irritated. Out of her two best friends, she finds Narcissa easiest to collaborate with. Their friendship is rather simplistic and underwhelming, as while Ada likes Naricssa; she doesn't really care for their deteriorating friendship.
Kurt Baisses Edit
Ada has a pet bear she named Tragette, her cub's name being based on the German word for bear, tragen.
Ada wouldn't really describe herself as a romantic person, not being very interested in a committed, long time relationship, rather a casual fling which can end at will. She tends to flirt with people for her own amusement and finds it quite funny when they assume she's being serious.
Parent Story: Snow-White and Rose-Red (and a little bit of backstory) Edit
Snow White and Rose Red are two little girls living with their mother, a poor widow, in a small cottage. They are very good little girls; they love each other dearly; and their mother is very fond of them. Rose-Red is outspoken and cheerful and loves to play outside. Snow White is quiet and shy and prefers doing housework and reading.
One winter night, there is a knock at the door. Rose Red opens the door to find a bear. At first, she is terrified, but the bear tells her not to be afraid. "I'm half frozen and I merely want to warm up a little at your place," he says. They let the bear in, and he lies down in front of the fire. Snow White and Rose Red beat the snow off the bear, and they quickly become quite friendly with him. They play with the bear and roll him around playfully. They let the bear spend the night in front of the fire; and, in the morning, he leaves, trotting out into the woods. The bear comes back every night for the rest of that winter, and the family grows used to him.
When summer comes, the bear tells them that he must go away for a while to guard his treasure from a wicked dwarf. During the summer, when the girls are walking through the forest, they find a dwarf whose beard is stuck in a tree. The girls rescue him by cutting his beard free, but the dwarf is ungrateful and yells at them for cutting his beautiful beard. The girls encounter the dwarf several times that summer, rescue him from some peril each time and the dwarf is ungrateful each time. Then one day, they meet the dwarf once again. This time, he is terrified because the bear is about to kill him. The dwarf pleads with the bear and begs it to eat the girls instead, but the bear pays no heed and kills the dwarf with one swipe of his paw. Instantly, the bear turns into a prince. The dwarf had previously put a spell on the prince by stealing his precious stones and turning him into a bear, but the curse is broken with the death of the dwarf. Snow White marries the prince and Rose Red marries the prince's brother.
How does Ada come into it?Edit
Pre-Ever After High life Edit
Ada is the eldest child of Snow-White and her prince, born quite early into an otherwise mundane and uneventful marriage, very quickly Ada notices that her family relations are simply that of convince. There's no real love or passion in her parents marriage - to the point where both Snow and her prince are completely shameless about their various affairs, and Ada learns to consider this as "normal". Ada was mostly raised by her grandparents, or the castle staff, indicating a sense of detachment from her parents. When she would spend time with them, it was usually for public events to present an aura of normality to their kingdom.
To compensate for the distance of her parents, Ada is spoiled rotten from an early age and overly sheltered, taught to believe she is superior to others by her parents, and that she should be treated superior to others because of her birth right. This makes her believe the world revolves around her. Acting as the catalyst for her narcissistic personality disorder.
Ada recalls spending a lot of time with the future Rose Red, Ruby Rosen and her future prince, Kurt Baisses. The trio get along quite well until the family's responsibility - their roles in their story - is introduced to them at the age of 6 or so, with the implications fully understood at age 12. While Ruby and Kurt are excited, Ada seems indifferent, seeing it as inconvenience. Ada wants to be a queen and the luxuries that come with it, but does't want to deal with the negative aspects. This mentality creates a rift between her and her family.
Just before her departure to Book End, Ada declares that sure, she'll study at Ever After High, one of the most prestigious and respected schools in Ever After, but that doesn't mean she'll be Snow-White, nor will she come home acting like those 'other princesses.'
