Hero is the son of Jack and Goldilocks. He is born in Bree's story "Cemetery of the Undead". He is described to have Goldilocks' curly golden hair, Jack's strong chin, and Red's doe-like eyes. Goldilocks named him, saying that no matter where he comes from, he will always be the hero of his story. Red is named as his godmother. Goldilocks originally asked Porridge, but the horse refused.
