I HAVE FINALLY ESCAPED BEAD HELL. I AM THE VICTOR
Redid the prince’s outfit, because it was A) a jumbled mess and B) too similar to the main character’s outfit in basic shape, which is a problem because he’s supposed to feel exotic to said character. Tried to keep the sky theme to the best of my ability.
Introducing: Yelwa Sarahazamel, the 16-year-old prince of the nation of Eruzal. Eruzal is coastal, so hot flashes mean the shores often get hit with waves of steam & mist and a lot of the fabric is either super-thin or super-water-resistant as a result.
Yelwa is the Princess trope, so he’s banned from inheriting the crown; his elder sister is the next-in-line for the throne, and his royal responsibilities are limited to, uh…representing the entire country to every other nation in the world. Wowee.
Extensions of the princess trope: affiliation with the “holy/light” element, non-combat magical aptitude, and direct opposition to the Big Bad (regardless of actual relevance to the fight against evil, power, standing, or success in contributing to the fight against evil in any meaningful way). Also; probably gets kidnapped at least once.
