|And once you've flashed your killer smile, there's not much more too it. Just be awesome, tall, handsome, popular, and incredibly good-looking. Basically, be me!|
|—Daring to Dexter in "Just Sweet"|
Daring Charming is a 2013-introduced and fiction-only character. He is part of an unknown fairytale and he is a student at Ever After High. Daring is the older brother of Dexter Charming, another Royal, and Darling Charming, a Rebel.
For the most part, Daring is his father's son - he is, obviously, quite charming and handsome. He is a tad egotistical and conceited, very infatuated with his appearance, as he is often seen with a mirror or flashing his smile to girls. It is apparent that Daring's sanity, confidence, and happiness all revolve around him seeing himself in the mirror. He does have some sense of duty though. He is often seen escorting his future queen Apple White and he is well-practiced in gallantry. Daring also takes extra precaution when his teeth get whitened by covering his mouth to not risk blinding bypassing students.
Daring has blond hair, white skin, and gray-blue eyes.
As one of Ever After High's most athletic students, Daring goes all-out when it comes to bookball. He plays for the Ever After High's bookball team and seems to be quite skilled at the sport.
Due to the events of "Dragon Games", Daring Charming is confirmed as not being the Prince Charming to wake Apple White, thus leaving him out of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs though now it is possible he may be a Don in Distress.
He is the son of King Charming and Queen Charming and has two twin siblings who are younger by nine months: Dexter and Darling. According to the Ever After High books, he has numerous cousins and each set uses the same first letter in their names. The cousins are Bountiful, Breathtaking, and Beloved, Charity, Courageous, Cherished, and Caring, Elegant and Errant, Fragile, Fearless and Fairest, and Good-Enough, Gallant, Glorious, Gutsy, Gracious, and Gorgeous. His grandparents are Alluring and Auspicious Charming.
Daring is easily close with Dexter, his brother, but Dexter has secret feelings that Daring is somewhat foreshadowing him. Daring is friends with most princes. Hopper Croakington II is his roommate so it's likely they get along as well.
Daring's pet is a peacock named P-Hawk.
Daring has the admiration of almost every girl in school, such as Duchess Swan, Holly O'Hair, and Lizzie Hearts. Cerise Hood is implied to fancy him too and even Raven Queen was interested when she thought the feeling was mutual. Apple White, his thought-to-be destined love, is happy to marry him later on in life, but currently is not romantically involved with him. This was mutual for Daring, but shown in "Lizzie Heart's Fairytale First Date", Daring took Lizzie out as a dare, and in the end, truly was charmed by her. Usually, however, Daring is out and about with other girls around the school. An example of this is when he went out with Lizzie but asked Duchess out straight after, as well as accusing Kitty Cheshire herself of asking him out.He is destinied to be the beast of Rosebella Beauty.
