Beauty and the Beast (stylized on Episode: Beauty and the Beast {Complete}), is a Romance/Drama story written by Jordan. It takes on a newer approach to the classic tale. The beast in this story was in fact no hairy or ugly beast at all. Rather, the "beast" was on the inside. This story tells of an odd, young woman named Annika, who didn't fit in her town after her father's death. She meets the haughty, beastly master, Talon. Their story begins after Annika takes her younger sister's (Calissa) place as prisoner in Talon's mysterious castle.


Beauty and the Beast is retold in this haunting story about an odd girl who learns to find herself in a strange castle.

Main Characters

  • Annika - The main protagonist of this story/take on Beauty and the Beast. She meets Talon, the beastly master of a castle, and gradually falls in love with him.
  • Calissa "Cal" - Cal is the eight year old, younger sister of Annika. She is shown to be very perky and girly, but ultimately cares about her family first and foremost. When she ventures out into the woods one night, Annika is forced to find her and when she finds Cal, she must take her place as prisoner in Talon's castle.
  • Annika's mother - Due to the death of her husband (also Annika and Cal's father), Annika's mom turned into a mute and isolated herself from her town and daughters. This forced Annika to raise Cal on her own for several years before the events of the "Beast" transpired. Annika's mom eventually finds her voice and mends her broken bonds with her daughters at the end of the series.
  • Talon - the beastly character in this story. This haughty, disrespectful prince has no regard for his castle or his castle servants due to the events that led him to become so arrogant, years ago (involving an arranged marriage). Talon agreed to swap Cal's imprisonment with her older sister, Annika, after a confrontation with him between the two sisters. Unexpectedly, Talon learns to become a better person due to Annika's influence and the two begin a rocky friendship, which ultimately leads to romance at the end of the series. Tortured by his rough past, Talon learns that he is no longer "ugly or beastly" and forgets that his ex-lover and his deceased parents thought that of him.
  • Vivika - Talon's ex-fiancè and ex-friend, she was originally a crude and mean person. She thought Talon to be an ugly person, inside and out, before actually marrying him (Talon's and Vivika's own mothers agreed with this fact, unfortunately, which led to Talon's outrage for years to come). Vivika makes a modern day appearance to try and win Talon's heart once again, but is unsuccessful and learns that kindness is the only true way to succeed in life. Vivika becomes friends with Talon once again and even befriends Annika once she gives up Clara's, Talon's main servant, involvement in trying to corrupt the castle.
  • Clara - Originally Talon's father's (the king) personal servant, she had a huge crush on the man, but the king was already married. Due to events that transpired in the castle's kitchen, the king fired Clara's son and dozens of kitchen staff (without knowing it was the son who was also involved). This happened shortly before the king and queen's deaths. Clara then took revenge on Talon by kidnapping Annika and trying to destroy the servant staff and Talon's "happy ending" with Annika. Clara is ultimately unsuccessful and is jailed by Talon's staff.
