"The redemption is not something that changes for you. It is something that happens inside of you."
Snow White's Apple (F-04-42-W) is a humanoid Abnormality with an apple for a head. She is incredibly tall, with a neck and arms that appear to be made of thorned flower stalks. She wears a long red dress with white puffed sleeves, a white waist apron, and what appears to be a large dress collar of wilted leaves. The head has hollow eye sockets and nasal apertures that were said to have been eaten by worms and birds.
Ability[edit | edit source]
Her special ability is "Where is Him?". Snow White's Apple will escape once her mood becames bad. She will disappear from her room and appear in a random hallway or small room of the current department and sprout vines from the floor. Employees will have reduced movement speed and Snow White's Apple will attack them with sharp vines, dealing strong physical damage as long as she is in the same room and they are on the vines. Once the room's floor is covered by vines, Snow White's Apple will disappear from it and appear in another area of the department, repeating the same actions until she is either subdued or the day ends. The vines will be removed by the next day.
Origin[edit | edit source]
Snow White's Apple is the apple from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves". Created by the witch's rage and curse, it was thrown away after a single bite from Snow White which poisoned her. The apple became lonely, and developed a deep hatred for her. It waited and waited to rot, but never decomposed. As time passed, birds and worms took bites of it, leaving holes in the apple. All died soon afterwards due to its poison, and their corpses began piling around it. The apple constantly thought about its own existence. After a long time, a dried, dead stem sprouted. Lifeless leaves grew from around it, which continued to grow every day. One afternoon, the apple was finally able to move. It thought about Snow White who was lying for a long time and the prince who came to wake her up. The princess which was no longer an apple began to search for her prince.
In the last observation, Snow White's Apple realizes that her 'prince' doesn't exist. She simultaneously realizes that she will never stop existing, and that there is no point in waiting around for nothing.
How Snow White's Apple arrived in the facility or where she was found is still unknown.
Caretaking[edit | edit source]
Snow White's Apple responds best to violence work. She likes nutrition, and hates cleanliness, consensus, and amusement works. It's recommended that the player always keeps a close eye on her mood, as she only needs to fall a little into the red zone for her to attempt an escape.
Snow White's Apple drains a moderate amount energy when she's happy, supplies a large amount of energy when neutral, and doesn't provide any energy output when upset.
Snow White's Apple's mood gauge is divided into 3 sections, distressed, neutral and happy. Under the 30%, she will feel distressed, between 30% and 80%, she will be neutral; and above 80%, she will feel happy.

- "Snow White's Apple was subdued and transported back to the quarter. However, its vines did not die until the next day."
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Snow White's Apple is an harmful abnormality when breaching, and is less so when performing work on her. When she first arrives at the facility with no Observation levels, she should be a top priority when assigning works, because her mood will decrease faster until more successful Observation works are made. Only try to do Observation work with her when her mood is above the neutral mood or higher than its half, because if the work ends in fail, her mood will get reduced and may lead to a breach if she enters her bad mood.
Snow White's Apple sometimes inflict a low amount of Physical Damage to the employees while working with her, but due the low probability of occurring, the player can send agents of any level without worry of them getting killed or panicked. Her mood will only increase by 2 types of work, and anything else will decrease her mood greatly.
When breaching, she only appears in hallways and small rooms, next to the elevators, locking paths to other Abnormalities' containment rooms. As long as she is in the same room, only the employees passing over her vines will get damaged and slowed. Check the progress of her vines to see how much time she will remain in there before leaving. After the room's floor is covered by vines, she will leave after a short amount of time. If she enters again in a room covered by vines, she can attack any employee in the room, and after an amount of time, she will move to another room.
If Snow White's Apple is in hallways, she can be suppressed more easily by agents with ranged weapons if she just started her escape, because the vines will take time to spread through the hallway. If she appeared in a small room, the player can send more agents to suppress her due to the small space, making them more easy to reach her. Is not recommended to send agents armed with melee weapons to suppress her in a room covered by vines, the reduction of movement speed will make them take more time to reach her, along with taking strong physical damage. If you have enough energy to reach the end of the day or are close to it, you can leave Snow White's Apple alone instead until the day ends, without employees suppressing her to save them from possible casualties.

Final Observation[edit | edit source]
|(You see and feel something.)
The soil is solid.
A little bird is sitting beside me.
No, it is not a bird.
It is a rotting, decaying carcass of a bird.
Nothing is around me.
The prince came to wake sleeping Snow White up with a kiss.
The deadly poison that can melt a bone with a drop proved to be useless.
Why does no one visit me?
Why does no one share my pain?
Why does no one like me?
I hope I had legs, no, it doesn't have to be legs. All I want is to be able to move.
|I shall go find it.||Does not exist.|
|From some moment, I realized I can walk.
I see light. I hear people.
I will be free from this torment.
For I will meet my redemption
|This is unfair.
I want to be happy.
It's too painful to wait.
It is my bane that no one is around me.
I want this misery to crush me to nonexistence.
Some kind of legs sprouted out of me but I have no place to go.
However, I do not rot. I cannot stop existing.
I have to go, although I have no place to go.
I have to go.
