One of the four oracles that govern Wonderland, Morning Glory was the controller of Time. Grown in the Queendom of Clubs, Glory mirrored her own queen, always questing for peace with a deep love for everything in Wonderland. However, her powers made her a huge target for the neighboring rulers. Not only could she control the flow of time, but she could see into the past, present, and future. One night Morning Glory looked into the future and foresaw the murder of Queen Clubs. However, she could do nothing to stop it. Like the other flowers, there were limits to her powers as well: She could not directly intervene with the course of events that were bound to unfold.
But not all hope was lost. Determined, Morning Glory sought out Rose with an odd request: create a single mushroom and hide it from the realm of evil. Startled by her sisters urgent tone, Rose did not question her motives. Instead, she created the Mushroom Valley, a forest of assorted mushrooms in all shapes and sizes. Rose placed the mushroom in the heart of the valley like a needle in the haystack. Before it was stashed away, Morning Glory secretly planted her powers within the mushroom. Whoever consumed the blue mushroom would be granted a taste of her ability to see into the past and future. Temporary visions hidden in the form of riddles and rhymes, cryptic messages. Her unbreakable restrictions made it impossible to share her visions with others, and this was the best she could do. Morning Glory knew that it would become highly sought after, eventually found by the Caterpillar that would fall under Rose’s care. Hopefully, this premonition would not change.
Just as Morning Glory returned to her home, Queen Clubs was killed. Oracles’ lives are tied to that of their queen, and as such, Glory died with the passing of her queen. She didn’t make it past the entrance stairs of her palace, withering into the actual form of a crumbled flower. Time has now become distorted in Wonderland, with no one to regulate it. Days will fly by or creep to a halt, creating an environment that fosters the chaos of war.
Truly believing he was an Angel sent from on high, the King of Diamonds found himself to be irresistible and completely invincible. However, unlike the God, Narcissus, who he was often compared to, his so-called “invincibility” and foolish decisions were put to the test.
When the turncoat Mad Hatter was said to have been captured, and brought to the Palace of Diamonds, the King, wanting to impress his ever so logical Lady, went to see if this news was true. In front of the castle gates, a rather strange sight met his eye. The Hatter had indeed been captured, but by none other than the devious Cheshire Cat. As both he and his guards stared at the unlikely gesture, the cat proceeded to explain that it was a gift of goodwill, and a token of amity. Not even bothering to question the feline’s true intentions, both the cat and the Hatter suddenly sprang a surprise attack. As the Hatter managed to take out the Diamond guards, the Cheshire Cat, in his human form, murdered the White King, mutilating him with his still intact claws and teeth.
In front of the castle gates, the king and his men lay like a bloody “present” a pet would leave for its master. The God King had fallen, and the face of Narcissus had been claimed by Hades.
Controlled by and devoted to his temperamental wife, there was no one who ever really cared about the King of Hearts other than she. She loved him as a pet, a puppy, finding it endearing the way he would repeat her orders as if they were his own; as if he even had an ounce of control.Only one other person seemed to even note the king's existence: the Mad Hatter. Violently jealous of the other man in his love's life, the Hatter drugged the King's tea and awoke him for a little surprise: his own personal beheading. With the King of Hearts dead, the throne has been left conveniently open for a new king...
