The Ambrose wiki last edited by fables87 on 07/10/13 07:33PM View full history

Ambrose, the chubby cub named after Flycatcher, is portrayed as the weak link, often too scared to transform or fly when in danger. Ambrose narrates certain events such as the family's trip to his grandfather's castle, as well as his narrow escape from his six wild uncles, with whom his father later had a grand battle. These are done in the form of memoirs which hints Ambrose may have a larger role to play in the story later. While many find him weak, he does also shown to have some bravery as he was the only one to really meet Santa Claus.
 
 
During the Fables Fourm panel in the 2009 San Diego Comic Con, a one-page story was handed out to attendees that would foretell the fate of the cubs possibly within the next one hundred issues. Ambrose meets one of the Thirteenth Floor Witches, the young child-like apprentice to Frau Totenkinder, who at his behest tells him of a prophecy she had. She explains, "The first child will be a king. The second child a pauper. The third will do an evil thing. The fourth will die to stop her. The fifth will be a hero bold. The sixth will judge the rest. The seventh lives to ages old, and is by heaven blessed." The Witch further explains that her vision made no real detailed specifics as to which child is which and she leaves it up to Ambrose to decide if he should tell the others.
