|“||No one needs to save me, I'm the Savior! I'm fighting for the people I love. Ultimately, I am a hero. I am hope. I am light. And light cannot destroy darkness, it can only create more light. I will not kill innocents. I will do what all saviors must, I will give hope. No matter what the cost.||„|
|~ Emma to Gideon|
Emma Swan is the main character and protagonist of Once Upon a Time. She is the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming and the older sister of Neal Nolan. She was sent to the real world after The Evil Queen placed a terrible curse upon the Enchanted Forest. She worked at a bail bonds agency while living in Boston until her son, Henry Mills, found her and brought her to Storybrooke to break the curse. At the end of the first season she finally broke the curse, but with the introduction of magic by Mr. Gold (Aka Rumplestiltskin), the fate of the two worlds becomes interwined, and new threats emerge. Unfortunately, she is absorbed into a vortex of pure evil, which makes her become the new Dark One in the place of Rumplestiltskin. The darkness was later removed from her.

However, since Emma forged Excalibur and the dagger back into one blade again, it can no longer control her, although it still bears the names of both the current Dark Ones)
