The city of Dragonvale needed a hero. They got Bill, instead.
Oddly, he turned out to be enough. Bill comes from the mysterious land of Mai-N'ohs, where the most dangerous weapon is wordplay. He answered Dragonvale’s summons to save them from the plundering attacks of Melvin, the fire-breathing dragon.
Innocent, kind and good-natured, Bill may seem dense, but his skill with the deadly pun is unrivaled, and can often lay low even the fiercest enemies. Bill tends to cluelessly wander in to situations that he shouldn’t be able to cope with. But instead, the situations often find that they can’t cope with him.
With a wit so sharp that it can even pierce the fourth wall, Bill is an everyman hero for ancient and modern times!
Flying, breathing fire, kidnapping maidens, plundering towns, hoarding treasure, Melvin the dragon has done them all. He did what he loved and loved what he did - until one day the kingdom of Dragonvale had had enough. They sent out for dragon-fighters to end Melvin’s rampages. At first, Melvin didn’t care. He was strong and vicious enough that no one with any brains would dare challenge him. But he didn’t reckon on someone showing up without any brains.
When Melvin beheld Bill’s ridiculous attempts to slay him, they instead became friends - after a fashion.
The King of Dragonvale is known only as that - the King. Has a city to look after and keep at peace, but wonders whether hiring Bill as ‘Royal Dragon-Fighter’ isn’t causing as much mayhem as it’s preventing.
The King likes peace, plenty, and order. But finds that trying to deal with a punny, unpredictable knight, and his equally unpredictable friend (who happens to be a vicious, fire-breathing dragon) is at least as much trouble as politics, economics and whining peasants....
Every leader needs a straight man, and Fritz is about as straight as they get. Loyal, sensible and organized, Fritz is the Royal Counselor, and the sane anchor that the King needs to help cope with a pair of subjects like Bill and Melvin.
Long before Dragonvale was a video game on Facebook, it was a medieval town ruled by a noble King. And now that it enjoys a sort of truce with the local fire-breathing dragon, Dragonvale's citizens are free to let their personalities come forth. Dragonvale has a myriad of subjects - including evil wizards, angry old codgers, tax collectors, archaeologists, a Black Knight, leprechauns, fairies, elves, trolls, a fair princess, and more!
