Prince Eric of Twyl

My name is Eric. I’m the Prince of the Kingdom of Twyl and I’ve been asked to share with you some personal details, so you might better understand my character. It won’t be easy because I don’t always understand myself as well as I’d like to. 

I grew up in the Palace in Twyl, but unlike much royalty, I never felt entitled. My position is one I’ve had to earn. This is due to the influence of my parents, King Terrence and Queen Triss. The whole family has dedicated themselves to the service of Sheba, the Goddess of Honor combat and the Hunt. There was never any question that when I reach the age of transition I will join the rest of the family.

I’ve been taught from childhood that the right thing to do is seldom the easy thing to do, and doing what’s right is important to me. I don’t take my position for granted. I try to do the right thing all the time, and though I fail sometimes, I strive to improve to become the best person I can be. The best son. The best brother. The best Prince. And to serve Sheba as best I can.

One day, when I’m older, I’ll take the throne of the Kingdom of Twyl,when my father steps down, but that’s still many long years away. Until that time, I’ll learn all I can for to be a good King, you need to possess not just might, but wisdom as well, and attaining that wisdom seems very far away. If I’m even a fraction of the ruler my parents are, I will be well satisfied.
