However, when Fawn meets a grumpy beast the likes of which she has never seen, she quickly forgets her promise and names the creature Gruff.

Fawn eventually lets her friends Tinker Bell (Whitman), Silvermist (Liu), Vidia (Adlon), Iridessa (Raven-Symoné) and Rosetta (Hilty) meet Gruff. However when Fawn and her friends take Gruff to show Queen Clarion, they find that scout fairy Nyx (Dawson) has already learned of his existence, though not location or association with Fawn, and believes him to be a harbinger of doom.
