—Stealthy to Dreamy src

Stealthy is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts in the tenth episode of the first season. He is portrayed by guest star Geoff Gustafson, and is the main reality version of Stealthy (Wish Realm).


Before First Curse

Stealthy, along with the other dwarves, was hatched from an egg, fully grown, and instructed by Bossy with mining the diamonds that will be turned into fairy dust. Stealthy receives his name after getting his own ax. When Dreamy tries to leave for Firefly Hill to run away with Nova, Stealthy catches him as he is sneaking off, and he wakes up the other dwarves. While the other dwarves give their blessing to Dreamy and say goodbye to him in a group hug, Stealthy is too upset to join them. Later, while the six dwarves are working in the mines, Dreamy returns, apparently having given up on Nova. They watch as he tries to vent his emotions by mining, but his pick ax breaks, causing him to get a new one, earning him the new name Grumpy. ("Dreamy")

When Grumpy commits a crime and is imprisoned, Stealthy breaks into King George's castle, where he is being held, to rescue him. Another prisoner, Snow White, convinces Grumpy to free her as well, and she later advises them to escape with her through the castle's back door. Stealthy believes the front is better, but when he and Grumpy go that way, they find themselves surrounded by King George's men. When Stealthy attempts to run, he is shot and killed by an arrow. Grumpy nearly meets the same fate, but Snow White offers herself up to King George, in order to let him escape. ("7:15 A.M.")

After his death, Stealthy goes to the Underworld, where he is unable to move on because of his unfinished business. ("Firebird")

After Third Curse

Following his death, Stealthy ends up trapped in the Underworld, unaware of what his unfinished business may be. He joins a line to find out from Henry, the new Author, who writes down his unfinished business for him. After getting the document from Henry, Stealthy briefly reads it, realizing his deep resentment towards Bashful has been holding him back. The dwarf thanks Henry for his help, and he asks him to tell his brothers that he misses them. Henry mentions Grumpy, who also goes by Leroy, talks about him a lot. Stealthy is happy to hear this, and he smiles appreciatively, before walking away. ("Firebird")

The Hollywood Reporter. “We added an eighth dwarf last year and killed him, and his original name was Sneaky. We were told that seemed derogatory, so we changed it to Stealthy. They were OK with us adding an eighth dwarf and killing the eighth dwarf, but they weren't OK with his name being Sneaky…They were probably right.”
