The Prince and Princess are children of the ruling King and Queen who will one day step up to rule their own sub-realm. It is their job to assist their parents in ruling and ensuring that all is in order. They must do this in preparation for the day they become Kings and Queens themselves, even though this may a long time. Becoming the commanding ruler over a sub-realm is not to be taken lightly. There is a lot of work involved with diplomacy and politics that they must learn from their parents. Often the Prince and Princess will accompany the King and Queen in political meetings with the presiding Dark Lord. Here they sit quietly and absorb the information and speak only when spoken to. However, there are some occasions that they are not permitted to attend and the meetings are private.
Very rarely does this happen, but it is not unheard of for the Prince or Princess to catch the eye of the ruling Dark Lord and be appointed King or Queen sooner than expected. It is through conversations in the meetings that the Dark Lord picks up on their spectacular ability to rule. Impressed, he will award them a sub-realm in his domain to rule over.
Trained from an early age in the art of war, diplomacy, politics, and proper ruling etiquette, the Prince and Princesses learn skills those below them do not. They have a strong sense of determination and will go the lengths to assist you with whatever you need.
