Blue Fairy and Tiger Lily

"Many Years Ago," Fiona and Malcom welcome a son. Suddenly the candles start to flicker when the Blue Fairy and Tiger Lily arrived, the latter to serve as his godmother, as the child is destined to become a Savior as he is to follow his prophecy to do good. Fiona, however, is worried about the outcome despite Tiger Lily's assurances. After Fiona gives Tiger Lily her son, she then takes Tiger Lily's wand and transforms herself into a fairy and presses Tiger Lily to help her track down every child that was born during the winter season in order to make sure they did not have a crescent moon scar, believing that the person will kill her son. She then tells Tiger Lily to help her get into the Fairy Vault where she wants to create a forbidden spell.

Fiona becomes the Black Fairy

Inside the vault, Tiger Lily discovers that Fiona is working on a Curse that would banish every child upon learning from Tiger Lily that a Savior's fate is to die. Fiona has become furious with Tiger Lily at this point, which prompted her to rip Tiger Lily's heart out, causing Fiona to become The Black Fairy, resulting in her also receiving a crescent moon scar on her wrist thus revealing that it is her son that will kill her. As Fiona laters shows Gold after the events happened, the Blue Fairy arrived and took the Heart from Fiona and gave it back to Tiger Lily, who in turn offers Fiona the Shears of destiny, but Fiona uses them to break her son's destiny in order to keep her power, thus resulted in Fiona being banished to the Dark Realm but not before she promised to find him. Afterwards, the fairies returned the child to Malcom, who tells them that although he loved Fiona, he now sees the child as the reason for their bitterness, and he named the child Rumplestiltskin.
