NAME: The River King and Prince Fishface
HOME: Mad River
BACKGROUND: Deep in the wilderness, past the Forest of Death, but before you reach Giant’s Peak is the Mad River. Many a man and woman have tried to cross the Mad River, only to be swept away in its brutal currents. Mad River is the home to the River King, his son Prince Fishface, the fearsome Barry the Barracuda, and other creatures. Claudette and her friends fought the River King the first time they met, but that conflict is just water under the bridge, and they’re all pals now. But if you ever meet him, remember the River King’s favorite food is pickled herring. You better bring him some.
SPECIAL POWERS: The River King has dominion over all the rivers. (Not the sea – the seas are controlled by his first ex-wife the Sea Hag, but that’s another story for another time). The King can change his shape using water from his river. Prince Fishface has the power to make his fish scales incredibly shiny. In the right light, he can glimmer.
