History

Before First Curse

In Arendelle, as Anna's wedding is planned, Sven is tended to by her fiancé as well as his owner, Kristoff, in the stables. Elsa, bursts in to question Kristoff about her Anna's whereabouts. After bluffly badly, Kristoff admits Anna booked a trip to Misthaven in order to uncover the secret of what she and Elsa's parents were headed on the voyage that took their lives. ("A Tale of Two Sisters")

When Elsa receives word that Prince Hans and his brothers are forming an army to invade Arendelle, Kristoff offers to sneak into their camp and eavesdrop, but she wants to handle the situation herself. Rebelling against her decision, Kristoff travels to the Southern Mountains with Sven to find out what Hans is up to. On the way there, Sven communicates, in a series of grunts, expressing disapproval at his owner's choice. Kristoff owns up to his actions but promises that Elsa will be glad he didn't listen to her. Leaving Sven in the woods, Kristoff then sneaks closer to the camp where he overhears the princes' plans of imprisoning Elsa in an urn so Hans can rule Arendelle as its king. ("Rocky Road")

Yearning to see Anna again, an unhappy Sven refuses his favorite treat, carrots, when Kristoff offers him some. Exasperated, Kristoff comments out loud that he can't figure out what's wrong with him. At the stable's doorway, Anna, after arriving home, suggests that perhaps Sven missed her. In utter joy, Kristoff reunites with Anna. As the couple kiss, Sven begins making smooching noises, which Anna finds funny while Kristoff tells him to stop. Sven then hides his head to give the two of them some privacy. Kristoff tells Anna that he took a bath this morning, and she remarks that he smells wonderful, whereupon Sven starts sniffing the air. ("The Apprentice")

After Fourth Curse
Although Arendelle was destroyed by the Black Fairy's Dark Curse, it is reformed after Emma Swan, the Savior, wins the Final Battle. Sven is peacefully returned to his stable. ("The Final Battle Part 1", "The Final Battle Part 2")
