Inspired by the Disney/Marvel Merger...
Re-imagined well known heroines of history, fairy tales and fables coming together as a team of superheroes known as "The Defenders of the Enchanted Kingdom" Their lives have taken mysterious turns and led some down darker paths that have brought them together to protect their magical land.
The thief known as Sarousch remained in jail for a short time after attempting to steal La Fidèle. His release came easy with the help of a very disfigured Frollo, who had been slowly regaining his power after surviving his dramatic fall into molten hot metal. Plotting revenge against those who nearly got him killed he convinced Sarousch to join him, which wasn't hard since his own plans were foiled by similar enemies.
Esmeralda and Phoebus had been living happily raising their child Zephyr in the commune. Quasimodo and Madellaine had just recently decided to move close to them. But joy quickly turned to sorrow when the camp burst into flames. Phoebus and Esmeralda quickly tried to ease the fears of their panicked friends and get as many people out of the camp as possible. Quasimodo took a horse and went to the city to get help, once there he was surprised to find Sarousch bringing the city to flames as well. Quasimodo fought fiercely to try to stop Sarousch's attack, where he revealed that he was not working alone.
Meanwhile, back in the enflamed and desperate gypsy camp, Phoebus and Esmeralda managed to get most of the people out and away from the fire. Madellaine led the last group of people to saefty leaving Phoebus and Esmeralda while they searched for any last survivors. Thats when the grossly disfigured Frollo (or what was left of him) emerged from the shadows, escorted by a group of the city's armed soldiers.
Back at the City, Sarousch had pinned Quasimodo into a corner, where he conveniently revealed his and Frollo's plot to get revenge against Quasimodo and all his friends by destroying and killing everything they had ever loved and framing Esmeralda and Phoebus for the destruction of not only the camp where they live, but the city Sarousch had been burning as well. Quasimodo's gargoyle friends, (Victor, Hugo, and Laverne) came to his rescue, freeing him from Sarousch. The three of them raced back to the camp hoping to save their friends, but instead they made it back just in time to witness Phoebus and Esmeralda hanged until death amongst the fiery inferno that had become of their home.
Several years passed, and the gypsies left thought they had found a new home in hiding deep in the forest. Quasimodo and Madellaine had become foster parents for Zephyr who had now become deeply troubled. Often he'd drift away alone into the forest hoping for his parents to emerge out of the darkness. One day Frollo emerged instead, having been searching for Zephyr and Quasimodo to finish what he had started, but before Frollo could speak his words were taken from him. With assassin like ability, Esmeralda had snuck up behind Frollo and wrapped her sash around his neck, she leaned in as she pulled on the sash, and revealed herself to him. "Stay away from my family" she whispered and the sash burst into flames from fire that seemed to be ripped from no where, suffocating him with smoke and she strangled him to his death.
Zephyr and Esmeralda's reunion was bittersweet, as she remained distant towards him. She asked Quazimodo and Madellaine to take care of Zephyr for a little while longer... when asked where she was going her only reply was "I don't believe Phoebus is dead either" and she faded back off into the shadows she came from.
