The Craven Knight

Chapter Text

As the beast lay bloody and crippled on the ground, shrieking and trashing about, Elouan approached it with his blade in hand.

It was said that the knight shed tears of sorrow as he thrust his sword into the heart of the beast, which then transformed into the fair princess and died in the arms of her beloved knight…

No one knew for sure what happened to Elouan after Princess Danica’s death. Some said he ignited himself with his fire spell and clutched his beloved in his arms until they both burnt to ash. Others claimed to have seen him in the battlefields, charging fearlessly into battle like a maddened beast and fighting until the earth had drained his last drop of blood.
