It's time to take another peek behind-the-scenes of Dragon Spirit! In our last installment, we took a look at Nida, a bodyguard in service to the Princess of Mitgult. Today, we'll focus on her boastful companion Amul, a not-so-valiant warrior whose skill and reputation may only be equaled by his ego.
When asked to discribe Amul, Dragon Spirit's Jim Zub had this to say, "Amul is every negative trait that could come from heroism all wrapped up into one person -- he's full of himself, vain, greedy, ignorant and selfish. The ballads and poems of the game never focus on these traits, but we're here to show you all how it 'really' happened."
No, he's not quite the hero we may remember from the arcade classic, or even a poster-boy for heroism, but its hard deny his handsome looks and prowess with a spear. After all, he managed to cut down an entire army of evil toads all by himself -- or so he'd have you think.
Unfortunately, his skill and good looks might not be enough to save him from the wrath of Nida, who growing more and more tired of his attitude with each strip. Whether or not they can learn to get along remains to be seen, but their very survival, and the success of the mission to rescue the princess could depend on it! To find out if they have what it takes, catch Amul and Nida in the latest installment of Dragon Spirit every Sunday, only on ShiftyLook!
