Mirrors reflect our mood, our desire, our essence. They are a temporary receptacle for some tiny fraction of our soul.
Growing up, Ingrid was remarkably close to her sisters, Gerda and Helga, until she and the latter vanished under mysterious circumstances, leading the royal family of Arendelle to opt to let go of their memories of them. Trapped in a magical urn by people who feared and misunderstood her magic, Ingrid was set free by her niece Elsa, with whom she attempted to form a strong bond, in an immense desire to replace the family she'd once lost. Things didn't go as planned, and Ingrid eventually found herself in a land without magic, where she became a foster mother to a young Emma.
Many years later, in the town of Storybrooke, Ingrid, under the alias of Sarah Fisher, posed as the innocent local ice cream lady, waiting patiently for her plans to regain a family to unfold and bring forth her happy ending. However, Ingrid sees the error of her ways with the realization of her sisters' love, and her happy ending is achieved through self-sacrifice in order to save all of Storybrooke, thus allowing her to finally join her sisters in death.
