The Fable of the Seven Golden Keys is a children's story in Fillory. It is given to Quentin Coldwater by Eleanor on the Outer Island to help him with his quest.

Resume of the Fable Edit

There was a witch, a man, and his daughter. The witch wanted the man's undevoted attention, but as he couldn't give it to her, she kidnapped his daughter and trapped her in a hovering castle, telling him that he had to find six golden keys to unlock the castle's door, if he wanted to see his daughter again. The man spent years looking for them but could only find them by accident, and with each key he found, he opened another door, with each room being bigger than the last. When he found the sixth and final key, he went to the castle and unlocked the final door, only to find that his daughter was grown up. The girl didn't recognize him but thanked him by giving him a seventh key, which he never used.
