Mitchell Herman is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts, with his only appearance, in the fourth episode of the first season. He is portrayed by guest star Ted Whittall, and is the Storybrooke counterpart of The King.
Mitchell does not approve of his son's relationship with Ashley. After learning Ashley is pregnant, Mitchell forbids Sean from having anything to do with her. He arranges for Mr. Gold to take Ashley's baby once she gives birth. Sheriff Swan ends up on the Hermans' home doorstep while on the prowl for a missing Ashley's whereabouts. Mitchell calmly interrupts her discussion with Sean and redirects his son to go inside while he deals with the matter.
Seeing that Sheriff Swan is unaware of Ashley' previous agreeance to a specific deal, he tells her about the deal the girl made to give up her baby to Mr. Gold at the end of her pregnancy term. However, this is thwarted when Sheriff Swan agrees to owe Mr. Gold a favor in replacement of him taking Ashley's baby. ("The Price of Gold")
