He used to be a huntsman under Queen Grimhilde. Once, the evil queen ordered him to take Snow White to the forest and kill her. She demands that he brings her the princess's heart in a jeweled box as proof of the deed. However, Humbert could not bring himself to kill Snow White. So he asked for her forgiveness, revealed to her that the Queen wants her dead and told her to flee into the woods and never look back. The huntsman then killed a wild boar and brought its heart to Grimhilde. Ever since the vain Queen's defeat, Humbert decided to join the prince who kissed Snow White as a reliable ally.
