Sometimes you have to lie to protect the people you love.
Geppetto is a supporting character on Once Upon a Time. He was a lonely elderly man who carved a young boy out of wood to have as his companion. The puppet was given life through magic, and Geppetto named him Pinocchio.
Following a horrifying sea experience, the wood puppet was turned into a real boy by the Blue Fairy. Geppetto was later asked to build a magical wardrobe to protect Snow White and Prince Charming's baby from the Dark Curse, and he sent his son Pinocchio through the wardrobe as well. Following the curse, Geppetto became trapped in Storybrooke, Maine as Marco, a repairman.
