Description

Archie is an average build man with red hair and blue eyes. He usually wears his glasses, a coat in the winter, and a suit with a vest and tie. He always carries around his lucky umbrella and is often seen with his dalmatian, Pongo.

Personality

Archie is a good man who can be swayed a little too easily. He tries to do his best and do the right thing, but he is easily intimidated by people like Regina. He is very driven by morality and likes to help people.

History

Jiminy Cricket
Believe it or not, Jiminy wasn't always a cricket. He once was a puppeteer and grifter, traveling through Fairy Tale Land with his parents, picking pockets and fast-talking locals out of their money. But he never felt comfortable living the life of a traveling thief and he was always looking for a way out. He thought he had found one when Rumplestiltskin offered him a potion that would deal with his parents, but his father used sleight-of-hand to slip the potion to their latest marks, turning two innocent people into wooden puppets. The people were parents to a young Geppetto. Horrified at what had happened, Jiminy wished upon a star for an escape and The Blue Fairy answered. He was turned into the talking cricket we all know now, and devoted his life to helping Geppetto, and later his son, Pinocchio, do the right thing. He became a trusted member of Prince Charming and Snow White's inner council that was called when The Evil Queen declared her intentions to cast The Dark Curse.

Dr. Archie Hopper
In Storybrooke, Jiminy is known as Dr. Archie Hopper, a local therapist. He has been counseling young Henry who has shown signs of being deeply unhappy in his life with his adoptive mother, Mayor Regina Mills, and has been retreating into his fairy tale book to find answers.

So begins...

Doctor Archie Hopper/Jiminy Cricket's Story

Regina smiled as she waved to Henry through the window of the bus. She was kind of sad that he was leaving, but he would be back in a month or so. And Dr. Hopper had said that some time away from home would improve his mental health. Despite what many - including Henry himself - thought, Regina really did love Henry, in a selfish kind of way. His very name was comforting to her, as it was the name of her late father, whom she had dearly loved... whom she had killed. Henry ignored her, staring at the back of the seat in front of him. He was going to a camp out in the country with some other children, where he would be nicely out of the picture, no longer getting in the way of Regina's plans to get rid of Emma. Now she could enact all of her plans, and Emma would have nothing to hide behind. She turned on her heel and walked away towards Mr. Gold's pawn shop, smiling in anticipation.

Abd al Aziz, or "Fadi" as his many friends called him, sat in his office, reading The Daily Mirror. Apparently there was a new woman in town. A strange woman. In fact, the very fact that she was here was strange. Fadi knew that no one came to Storybrooke, and no one ever left. He knew about the curse, and he knew who he was. He knew who most people were, but that was beside the point. The point was that he didn't know who this new woman was, and that bothered him. He liked to have all of his ducks in a row. And this duck was very much out of line. Just thinking about it made him annoyed. So with that, he folded up the newspaper, patted his pockets to make sure he had everything he needed, and then walked out the door.

"Yes, thank-you Leroy, see you next Monday." Doctor Hopper sighed as he closed the door. He didn't want to show favoritism to any of his patients, but his mandatory sessions with Leroy were not his favorite. Whenever Leroy was pulled in for a drunk and disorderly, he had to have several sessions with Doctor Hopper as rehabilitation. And since Leroy didn't want to be there, it only made Doctor Hopper's life more difficult. He walked over to his chair and at down. He would miss his sessions with Henry, even if it was only for a month or so. Henry was a good kid, despite his weird delusions. And being Jiminy Cricket inside some little kid's head wasn't so bad. At least then he valued whatever Dr. Hopper said. But Mayor Mills was growing more and more adamant that this delusion must disappear. Henry wouldn't stop accusing her of evil plots and calling her the "Evil Queen." Poor kid. It only made sense that he would retreat back into his fairytale land and turn on his mother when she loved him with such a selfish love. No matter how many times Dr. Hopper told her that she needed to back off a little, she still stifled Henry. And the more Dr. Hopper advised her, the angrier she became. The pressure she was putting on him was becoming unbearable. To tell the truth, he was glad that Henry could get away from her for just a moment in time. She had gotten worse ever since that woman had come to town... what was her name? Ella? Emma? That was it, Emma. He wondered what there was between those two. Oh, well. It was none of his business - for now.
