Princess


Princess(Prince) –The princess can also be a child or a precious object. If this character (or object) appears at the beginning of the tale, then the villain steals or despoils or seduces or bewitches the character and carries him or her or it off. If the princess appears only later in the tale, then he or she is connected to the villain and the hero rescues or wins her or him. If the princess only appears at the end of the tale, then she or he is the one who (with the dispatcher) sets up the difficult task, recognizes the hero, exposes the false hero, and marries the hero. In terms of epic story structure, the Princess is the sought after person, the prize, the Holy Grail.
