Oberon is the king of Faerie, based on Shakespeare's king of the same name from A Midsummer's Night Dream. He is more than 4000 years old and is married to Titania with whom he has two sons named Puck and Mustardseed. Although Puck was his heir for over 4000 years, Oberon banished him from his kingdom for his disobedience after he refused to marry his mother's maid-servant, Moth.
Oberon appears in Once Upon a Crime when the Grimms take a severely injured Puck to Faerie for treatment. A fuming Oberon refuses to allow Puck in Faerie but is reluctantly convinced by Titania. Knowing that Sabrina and Daphne are the daughters of Veronica Grimm (who had earlier dealings with Faerie), he blackmails the Grimms to stay awhile and talk to his citizens, threatening to kick an untreated yet severely injured Puck out of Faerie if they don't comply; this was an effort to become more popular with the people of Faerie by bringing them the well-liked Veronica Grimm's children.
Although he wanted the Grimms to publicly speak favourably of his policies and of him in general (so the people of Faerie would be positively influenced by their words), they categorically refused and so an angered Oberon orders that they be temporarily 'imprisoned' in a store room whilst he makes arrangements for their welcome party. During the party, Moth brings Oberon a poisoned goblet of wine, leading to his death. He also appears post-humously as he inhabits Sabrina's body during a seance held by Ebenezer Scrooge.
