The Archer, the Horse and the Princess

In the service of this King was an Archer, who was the best shot in all the land. He was brave as he was noble, as keen-eyed as he was lightning fast with his bow. The Archer was a kind and generous soul, but he had to wear a mask to cover the horrible burns to his face suffered while rescuing the royal horses from a stable fire. Disfigured, the Archer was alone in the world apart from his own beloved horse Keshi, who was as sharp-witted as he was fleet of foot.
