Wonderland has grown stranger. I'm stranger, you're stranger. Together we are... strangers.
—The Cheshire Cat to Alice src

The Cheshire Cat is based on the character of the same name from the novel, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and the Disney film Alice in Wonderland.

History

Before First Curse

As a child, Alice follows the White Rabbit down a hole to Wonderland. During her stay in this world, she befriends a small feline called the Cheshire Cat. ("Down the Rabbit Hole")

After First Curse

While food becomes more scarce in Tulgey Woods, the Cheshire Cat has grown much larger in size. One day, he catches sight of Alice, now much older, standing on a tree branch looking for the Mad Hatter's old house in the distance. As he stares at her, his gleaming red eyes catch her attention. Nervously, Alice attempts to remind him who she is. He does remember her, however, with little food in the woods, she is his best bet for his next meal. Unnerved by his continued and menacing gaze, Alice asks whether he will eat her, to which the feline coyly remarks, "Not without pepper." He then pounces on her, and she falls onto the ground while dodging his paw strike. Alice, countering by hitting him with a stick, is tripped by his tail. Before the girl can get up, the Cheshire Cat holds her down with his paw and remarks that the Red Queen promised she would be the sweetest meat he ever tasted. Lunging to devour her, he halts when Alice's ally, Knave, steps on his tail. Enraged, the Cheshire Cat moves to chomp at Knave, who throws a mushroom at him. Accidentally swallowing the mushroom, the Cheshire Cat quickly finds himself shrunken down to the size of a house cat. Giving out a shrill meow, he scampers back into the forest. ("Down the Rabbit Hole")
