We describe on-going work on the combined use of ontologies and natural language processing for the detection and incremental recognition of relevant character in folktales. Our approach implements various iterations of ontology-based textual analysis of a folktale that allow to first detect potential characters, to consolidate this knowledge and finally to propose a reference resolution for all the mentioning of all characters in the tale.
