Ruby, wearing her hooded cloak.

The Red Hooded Cloak is a magical item featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. It is an enchanted cloak used by Ruby Lucas to prevent herself from turning into a wolf.


After obtaining the cloak from a wizard by the name of Knubbin, Granny insists that Red wears the cloak at all times, stating that wolves do not like the color red. In reality however, the cloak has magical properties which stops Red from turning during wolfstime. Even if Red is already in her wolf form, if Red's wolf form is covered by the cloak, she will return to her original human form. The cloak is magic, so the spell doesn't wear off if there is a small tear in it.
