Representing or substituting another character, such as the Beast or the Crocodile or the Fairy Godmother (although he replaced her after killing her).

Thus far, Rumple's been directly connected to 4 other characters' backstories: Cinderella; Belle; Hook; and Regina. When you're dealing with a series that has, to date, featured 11 main characters and a host of major recurring characters, that is a mere 'drop in the bucket'.
I can't remember. Was he connected to Jiminy Cricket, too?

It was also revealed that he taught Cora magic, and they clearly have a history that has yet to be spelled out.
Yea he's directly related to Jiminy's backstory. Jiminy's parents were thieves who travelled as puppeteers and had Jiminy steal purses during the performances. Jiminy wanted out and went to Rumple who gave him a potion to use on his parents, but his parents sold it as a 'cure' for a plague to a young couple and it turned them into wooden puppets leaving behind a son(Gepetto).

There was a very specific shot of Charming wiping dust off of his hand while in the mine. I figure that's going to mean something soon.
It was just to show that Charming could make the connection that Belle was taken to the mines. I wondered about that too at the beginning of the show when they showed a closeup of his hand - that's got to mean something later!
Ah, that was it - thanks!

He's pretty much the catalyst (either directly or indirectly) for everyone's story.

He kind of has to be: he seems to be the primary (given his past history with Regina and Cora perhaps the only) conduit of magic into fairyland and by definition all of the characters have magic either in their lives or their backstory. That makes it harder to exclude him from those stories than to include him.

The mention of The Little Mermaid reminds me that we already know he will be connected to Ariel as well. In Skin Deep Regina comes to him for help with a situation involving a certain mermaid.

So does that mean Regina is also Ursula?

Nah, that would be Mr. Gold, considering the deal Ariel makes with her.

So Rumpy will be Ursula, too. Guy should change his name to Sybil.

Yeah, that was my thought as well. I think now that we've seen Aurora, Mulan, and Hook Ariel's introduction is the thing I am most looking forward to. I really like mermaids and I am very curious to see OUAT's take on them.

Yup, I'm looking forward to their Mermaid Interpretation, too.

BTW, who is Aurora, I don't recognize her yet? What story does she stem from? I personally thought that was one of Ariel's Sister's names, when I read she was going to be a character

She's Sleeping Beauty. In the season premier we first meet her when Phillip wakes her up from her sleep. Her name comes from the Disney movie and the ballet.
