Cerise Hood is a 2013-introduced and all-around character. She is part of Little Red Riding Hood as the next Red Riding Hood, and she is a student at Ever After High. In the destiny conflict, she is on the Rebel side because she has no choice. Everyone knows that Cerise is the daughter of Red, but few know she is also the daughter of the Wolf. She is a person who by the rules of destiny should not have been born, and so she seeks to change that for both her own sake and her parents'. Being part wolf, Cerise is an excellent athlete, if not the best at Ever After High. Of course, she can't let anyone know until the world is no longer hostile towards her existence. This frustrates Cerise greatly on a daily basis, as does the fact she is forced to wear her hood constantly to conceal her half-wolf ears.
Cerise seems to be on good terms with most of the students, but she's nonetheless a reserved individual. She's prone to wolf-like tendencies and outbreaks, which is a huge inconvenience as she's trying to hide her heritage. Nevertheless, she loves her parents equally as she was ecstatic when they had a picnic together and regularly carries around a locket of their family photo. She is cautious about her secret and makes sure she keeps her wolf heritage out of public knowledge. It's possible that if she didn't have to worry about her secret that she'd be more involved with her classmates, as she once expressed a desire to participate in planning school dances.
Cerise has long, dark brown hair with several white streaks, predominantly on the left side, peach skin, and slate gray eyes. When she has her wolf-like outbursts, her eye color changes to yellow. Her makeup and outfits consist of darker colors along with red. She is never without her mother's famous red hood, which hides her half-wolf ears.

Cerise is both the daughter of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, and therefore is a child who should not be. Though Cerise had a warm and loving childhood in their care, now that she is preparing to take over from her mother, her heritage is catching up with her. Although once, Cerise had an illusion on what her life might have been like if she followed her father's footsteps. She is distantly related to Sparrow Hood.
Raven Queen is a friend of Cerise and one of the few who knows of Cerise's father. Daring Charming is familiar enough to greet her by name, and Cedar Wood is her roommate who doesn't know of her secret, and seems to manage to get along with her. She also considers Madeline Hatter a close friend. Ginger Breadhouse is also pretty close with her, since they both grew up together in the Dark Forest. Rosabella Beauty also considers her a close friend as she admires Cerise's pure heart.
Cerise owns a pet direwolf named Carmine.
Cerise notes that she's "always been drawn to the leader of the pack", suggesting she has a crush on Daring Charming.
