Cinderella: So, what? You won't stab me in the back, now that you know my name?
Aladdin: Oh, no. I am a prince after all. With my friends, I always let them see the knife coming.

Aladdin is the Arabian Fables' best spy, ostensibly acting under the orders of Sinbad. He worked alongside Cinderella in Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love.


Early life

From birth, Aladdin was the lowest of the low, with no bed but the cooled ashes of hearth. At some point, he found a magic lamp and ring contain two genies in the cave of wonders.[2]

Throughout the Series

The Aladdin is seen briefly learning English in preparation for the war against the Adversary. He is later seen in Dubai, disguised as a concierge in the Burj al-Arab hotel, holding a knife and preparing to attack an oblivious Cinderella, as seen in Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love. Both end up working on the same spy job together, looking for the ones who are selling magical contraband. They eventually discover it is the three girls from Sinbad's harem and find they are in dealing with Cinderella's own Fairy Godmother. Cinderella eventually defeats her grandmother with the help of Hickory and leaves with Aladdin. She reveals she knows about him spying on the other Fable-communities, but states she'll keep quiet because she's attracted to him. Aladdin returns her feelings and they decide to spend a night together. Not living "happily ever after", but, in Cindy's words, living "happily for the moment".


Aladdin seemed to be a very likeable and appealing person, to Cinderella at least. He also was quite flirtatious towards her as well.

Powers and Abilities


  • Immortality: Like most Fables, Aladdin is eternally young and difficult to kill; the extent of their immortality was allegedly based on the popularity of their tales.


  • Adequate Fighter: Aladdin seemed to be a capable fighter.


  • Significant Damage: A Fable, no matter how popular, can be killed. Once dead, they could potentially come back from the dead, provided their story be popular enough, or alternatively the role they left could be occupied by another Fable instead.
