Is the bulbasaur another potential partner since Eevee was rejected? Or perhaps another potential hero who decided they didn't want the task?

Toriel clutched her heart locket. Pleading with Chara now.

“This is for your own good. I know what’s best for you, why do you refuse to see that? You know nothing about this world and will die without a protector! Just let me protect you, Chara!”

“I don’t want your protection!” Chara turned, running to the room Toriel had provided for them, passing Frisk.

Back in the living room, Toriel leaned on the table, looking down.

Finally allowing herself to cry, and to remember.

...A human had fallen in the Ruins. A sweet little thing no older than six, thin with pale white skin, brown hair kept in place by a ribbon, pink and white sweater, overalls, and mismatched socks. A little wooden toy sword fallen next to her. Her sobs and whimpers echoed down the corridors of the Ruins, as she held herself and trembled.

“Then why not come with me, so that you can protect me! Why not fix the problems yourself if they will no!?”

“And abandon any child who falls here to the mercy of the flower beast!?”

Too loud. Too much shouting. Frisk hated shouting. They needed to get out.

“Kill the fucking flower beast!”

“Chara, language.

They left the room, back into the entryway, hugging their own chest and looking down.

They could still faintly hear the argument.

“Just kill it and be done with it!”

When something caught their attention. A railing, stairs descending into a dark basement.

“So if you’re that useless proctecting anyone from the flower beast, why even pretend to try?”

Frisk approached the basement, the argument seeming to fade from their ears as they approached and peered into the darkness.

“I will not abandon them, or you. I must try.”

Back in the living room, Chara pointed a finger at Toriel. “You’re a hypocrite! You didn’t even try to reason with your king, did you!? You abandoned your subjects! Those who trusted you and looked to you for guidance! No wonder they’re so desperate now, you abandoned then for the demons who trapped them down here!”

“The children who fell are the descendants of our jailers… Innocent children! They should not be executed for the crimes of their forebears, which they had nothing to do with! But the monsters of the present are the ones committing and rejoicing in the crimes I abandoned them for!”

They were yelling. Chara had been agitated, that Toriel had spoken louder, and now Chara was yelling.

“But why are you here? You’re queen of monsters, not humans! You’re supposed to be defending monsters! If you stayed there you could have… passed a law or something! But instead you’re just giving me vague threats! That won’t stop me from leaving!”

Frisk hated yelling. No one could see them, Chara probably won’t listen. They pressed their hands over their ears, huddling their wings around themself, but it didn’t help. They heard every work.

“You will not be leaving here, Chara.”

“I will if I want!”

Toriel bared her teeth. “NO! You will die! This is the only place where I retain any power! My former subjects, and former husband, refuse to listen to me any longer. They are desperate, and desperate monsters reject reason in favor of foolish stopgap solutions, leaving the true problem to fester like a sore.

You cannot speak reason with them. They do not want the best solution, only the fastest.

You cannot fight them. You are a child, fifteen or otherwise, and there are many more of them than there are of you! You will stay here, where it’s safe, where I can protect you!”

Images flashed through Toriel’s mind-- blood dripping from a little brown-haired girl’s mouth, she couldn’t have been more than six. Her paws coated in dust as she clutched a little white heart locket.

Her paws clenched into fists. “A child your age should not have to hear of the things I have seen and experienced.” Trying to keep her tone level and calm.

Chara wasn’t trying to bring up those horrible memories, they were simply a confused, terrified, and curious child after all. They she hoped soon Chara would grow to trust her soon.

Chara glared at her. “I am not a child. I’m fifteen years old. I’ve seen plenty of things children should not see, especially today.”

“And I am four hundred years old. I have lived through things no one should have to, regardless of age.”

“So you are a boss monster, right?”

“...Yes.”

She grit her teeth, standing up and planting her hands on the table. “Yes, I am the former Queen of the Monsters of Ebott’s Range. Former wife of King Asgore Dreemurr. I left that behind. However, I did not give up that responsibility on a whim. I did this for you, and the other human children who fell into the Underground. All of them fell. All of them stayed, for a time. And they all always left… and were killed.

By them.

By the Eldritch, and by Asgore and his Royal Guard.”

Chara’s eyes narrowed as if they’d forced Toriel into a confession. “Old enough to remember the War of Ruination?”

Toriel remained calm. “Yes, though I do not like to. Times are bad now, but there were far worse then…”

“Are you Queen Toriel Dreemurr!? From the legends?”

Toriel’s eyes narrowed. “I am Toriel. Merely an old woman who lives in the Ruins.”

Chara spread out their arms. “Why are you here?”

“What do you mean?”

“You-- you’re a queen, right? Why are you living in a tiny house in some Ruins, taking in strange humans? The enemy? What happened to the king? Where are the rest of the monsters?”

“Chara, I really don’t think this is appropriate dinner conversation. It is the distant past, and not particularly pleasant.” She scrunched her brows in thought, then perked up again grinning almost desperately. “Oh, I was reading an interesting book on snails earlier! Did you know--”

“You are changing. The topic,” Chara said, tone growing irritated.

Image Description: The living room was cozy, with several bookshelves, a well-kept fireplace, a cozy armchair, and a well-built dining wooden dining room table, three matching chairs around it. The warm yellow walls gave this place a happy and welcoming atmosphere, and Frisk could imagine a loving family growing up in it, spending time here. Toriel, standing at the table, ready to serve a delicious dinner. Her son, Asriel, pulling at her dress and trying to get her attention. And… she must have had a husband too, right? Frisk barely thought they could recall a burly goatlike man with a blond mane of hair. What would he be like?

Where were they now?

“Would you like something different to eat, Chara?”

Frisk was roused from their daydreams by Toriel’s voice. Chara was presently picking at a quiche with snails within it, leaning their head on their hand and their elbows on the table.

“No. No, the pie is delicious… Toriel,” they said, flatly.

“I understand that today has been very stressful with many changes, but you need to eat to keep your energy up, Chara.”

Chara poked around their food a few moments longer, then set their fork down. They had questions, and wouldn’t be able to focus until they had received answers.

“How long have you been here? Taking in humans who fall into the mountain?”

Toriel’s drifted away. “Quite a while. I am very old.”
@Eeva the Eevee: Yeah, but a Lopunny's been a prominent minor character in the past, and is kinda suspicious, so if this is the same one... well, that'd have some interesting implications.
Lopunny spotted.
Chatot?
Ooooooh boy... How much time has passed since Explorers?
Good lord this is getting creepy... 'You are scared, all alone, AND we sync well together!'
There isn't a choice here and that feels threatening.
@Ehhwa: After having reread this, and picked up on what I THINK are clues--
We've seen a few times that there's a missing orange spot. In Emily's imagine spot, her girlfriend was very associated with dark blue... that being said, it might be a way to throw us off our game and not make it too obvious who it is, but that at least makes me think again.

Personally, I'm not sure the main cast knows the Black Fighter. But this early in the game, anything's possible. I will admit that Emily's gf is the side-character with the most focus so I do see your reasoning for a fittingly shocking reveal.
This may just be because most were prepped to teleport... but the pads are all one color and white, but the missing one is orange with a black rim...
...
Rereading and--
1) In the show there was a black ranger
2) Here there's an unused orange slot
3) Remembering a character we meet later on... Though who we know little about

You know a trope I freaking love? When an in-universe show predicts the plot of the main story.
But I wonder if this page was foreshadowing too... I totally missed it on my first readthrough.

*I fell down and this monster child found me. He looked a lot like Toriel. I think he said his name was Asriel? I remember someone much bigger carrying me somewhere… I thought his parent? Or an older sibling maybe? And Toriel’s voice was familiar. I thought maybe she was related to him.

Chara pondered, deep in thought. “Interesting. Do you recall anything else?”

*No. I was passing out because I was dying of blood loss.

“Disappointing.”

They frowned.

(Asriel… that name sounds familiar… I wonder… I wonder what happened to him. No, that I do not need to wonder, I fall into the mountain, and learn what others call ‘demons’ are real. I am not the first human to fall here. So he’s likely dead… but what happened to--)

There was a knock at the door.

“Ah-- yes?” Chara called, backing away from it.

Toriel opened the door, leaning into the room and smiling kindly.

“Good evening, Chara, dinner is ready. Would you like to join me?”

“C-certainly.”

She shut the door, walking back down the hall. Chara was about to follow her, when their gaze landed on something… and they froze.

Before turning their eyes back to the door, and marching themself out of the room. Trying not to dwell on it.

But what if--?

No. It can’t be here. She’ll protect me.

But the others--?

But what if…


In the corner of the room, between the wardrobe and the lamp, under the clock and the little stars on the red walls, there was a good wooden desk with a matching chair tucked into it.

Placed onto the desk was a small red pot of little yellow flowers.

Not the Flower Beast’s. Not the Flower Beast’s. But all the same…
Jirachi is my first guess.
If ya can't beat 'em, hire 'em.

@marshman101: If you want to know what something explains, reading the explanation usually goes a long way to figuring it out. :P

The tl;dr is though--
Frisk: How old's Toriel?
Chara: I dunno probably REAL old, I think she's a boss monster and I don't know if and how those age.
