Drake is the older brother of two of the characters in the Wicked book series. He was born in Ireland and the children’s father was a geologist and a prominent trader in the area. It is not clear what the family lived on before they moved to America, but they were wealthy and influential people in their day. Drake apparently later became an expert draper, which would have been quite an accomplishment.
When Rumpelstiltskin came into the picture, Wendy Wichers took a liking to him and brought him into the story, although she did not admit it at the time. Soon after, the sisters departed to Europe and Wendy went with them. Wendy and her sister were very fond of the poet Benjamin Franklin.
In a very strange move on their part, Wendy became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl, but she had no idea that this child would turn out to be the inspiration for the famous characters in the “Wicked” series. This baby was named after the poet William Blake. Her daughter, also called Wendy, was raised by the Blake sisters until she was twelve years old.
It is unknown when exactly Wendy went back to her parents, but sometime in the mid-1800s, she left her friends, returned to her home, married and had a child of her own. She then came back to the United States, where she bought a cottage on a piece of land that is now called Slippery Rock Lake.
A lot of people think that Drake’s marriage to Emily was a bit strange because he “turned a child out of wedlock” at age fifteen, something that was unheard of at the time. The marriage was apparently much more amicable than some of the others that were going on around that time. Drake seems to have stayed with his wife and children and there are even stories of the two families visiting together and the young girl accompanying the famous poet on some of his travels.
Many people in England also believed that Rumpelstiltskin was an evil spirit. The original story was that the maid of honor came down from the tower, killed her first husband and then sacrificed her daughter in order to gain some power over the other spirits in the castle. The daughter was named Calista after the fairy. Rumpelstiltskin was very upset at this attempt at duplicity, so he took the child from her mother and raised her in secret.
After a few years, when she was about seventeen, Rumpelstiltskin caught the girl trying to take away a bucket from the castle and killed her father, who had been kidnapped by Rumpelstiltskin. After this, the girl was spirited away by an old woman and brought to a very strange place.
With the help of the now evil Rumpelstiltskin, the young woman grew into a giantess and set upon the woman with her wrath. She was able to force the giant out into the open and made a path for the giant to leave, but when she opened the way, she fell into a lake and drowned, where she was later rescued by the two sisters.
