Jafar: Please, don't leave me, Mama. [...]
Ulima: There is nothing left to do, Jafar.
Jafar: Don't say that. You're a healer. You've cured many others.

—Jafar and Ulima src

Ulima is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. She débuts, with her only appearance, in the seventh episode and is portrayed by guest star Rekha Sharma.


Before First Curse

In the past, Ulima meets the Sultan. They develop a romantic relationship and he gifts her a precious ring. Sometime before or after becoming pregnant, their relationship discontinues for reasons unknown. Giving birth to a child, who she names Jafar, Ulima later marries and makes a living as a local healer. When Jafar is still young, her husband passes away, and years later, she is stricken with illness. Believing her time has come, she tells her son about his real father. With the last of her strength, Ulima implores Jafar to show the ring to the Sultan as proof of their blood relation as she believes he won't turn him away. She passes away shortly after, and as her body gives off a magic dust, Jafar weeps over her body. ("Bad Blood")

Honoring his mother's last wish, Jafar goes to the palace and proves, with the ring, to be the Sultan's son. While the Sultan is saddened to hear of Ulima's death, he refuses to acknowledge the boy as his son. Instead, Jafar is installed within the palace as a mere servant. In his eagerness to impress his father, the boy speaks out of turn in front of diplomats and humiliates the Sultan's heir, Mirza, in doing so. In a cruel twist, the Sultan murders Jafar and has his body dumped on the outskirts of town. By the power of Ulima's magic dust, a revived Jafar resolves to get revenge on his father. ("Bad Blood")
