The Winter's Doe, also known as the White Lady, is one of the seven Questing Creatures of Fillory.
Captured by Quentin Coldwater
The Winter's Doe was first seen by Quentin Coldwater at Retreat during his recovery. The next day, Quentin and Penny tracked and captured her, hoping she could grant their wish. When the Winter's Doe told Quentin she could not bring Alice Quinn back to life, he instead asked her to send him 'home', and she transported him back to New York City.
Death in the 23rd Timeline
After Alice Quinn from the twenty-third timeline resurrected Quentin Coldwater, he defeated Martin Chatwin and became the new Beast. After defeating Martin, Quentin killed and ate the Winter's Doe, leaving nothing but her horns afterward.
