Prince Thorn is a little less fluid with his Sønska than Main Continuity Thorn has gotten by now.
Some of the other knights are also royals in this AU, but Senna and Kokum aren’t major enough to get elaborate AU backgrounds, so they’re just staying knights.
Kokum: Sword is sharp and ready for dragonslaying, Prince Thorn.
Thorn: Good, Sir Kokum.
Senna: Two unicorns have been saddled and loaded up for travel.
Thorn: Thanks, Sir Senna.
Leif: How much time do I have? When do we leave?
Thorn: “We”, sir L– uh, Leif?
This is a dangerous mission. Dragons kidnapping princesses are serious business. Also, if we lose everyone from your land, that will really backfire the reason of diplomatic marriage.
Leif: I can hide in safety with the bags while the rest of you charge in . . .
Thorn: There’s no “us.” I’m going alone.
Leif: Wh– Why??
Thorn: Listen, there are rules to this stuff. One dragon has to be challenged by one brave knight and/or prince. I know you haven’t read them, but it’s in all our stories!
Leif: W-well — Do the stories say the prince has to wash his own laundry and cook his own meals on the way?
Thorn: Um . . . I guess that could be a looping hole, huh.
Leif: . . . I thought maybe we would get one unicorn each.
Thorn: The stories don’t mention extra unicorns, and I don’t want to play any chances.
