|See, it's just that since I'm cursed to never lie, I'm not real good at stretching the truth.|
|—Cedar Wood in "Cedar Wood Would Love to Lie"|
Cedar Wood is a 2013-introduced and all-around character. She is part of The Adventures of Pinocchio as the next Pinocchio, and is a student at Ever After High. In the destiny conflict, she is on the Rebel side out of a general belief that people should be free to choose, though she herself is eager to follow in her father's footsteps and become a regular girl.
A true friend to a rebel named Raven Queen, through and through, Cedar's inability to lie and consequential, but unintentional, blunt speech patterns has earned her no enemies thanks to her big heart and gentle nature. She's a quirky, talkative girl with a true talent for expressing herself. Her high emotional drive makes her easily excitable, however, and a small worry can easily work her into a frenzy.
As the next Pinocchio, one might expect Cedar to be an experienced liar, but the opposite is true. At a young age, her father had a Truth spell cast on her, which prevents her not only from lying but also makes her prone to share truths without actual provocation. The spell won't wear off until her incarnation of the story commences.
Cedar has dark brown, wavy hair with purple strands in her braid, wooden dark brown skin, and dark brown eyes. As for her outfits, Cedar usually wears something artistic, bold and appealing. As such, she uses the colors yellow, purple and various shades of pink for effect.
One of Cedar's favorite pastimes is painting. Not only does she use this as an extension of her voice, she uses it to express her inner feelings and what she cannot say verbally. An extra interest for Cedar is photography, as she was one of the people who helped Apple and Raven piece together their yearbook by helping them take photos of school events.
