Contents

Premise

The series is about the mythical adventures of three companions: Galtar, Princess Goleeta, and her younger mind controlling brother, Zorn. Galtar, with the help of his Golden Lance, is fighting with Tormack, the tyrannical usurper of the kingdom of Bandisar who is conquering their entire world. Tormack is responsible for the death of both Galtar's parents and assassinating the rest of Goleeta and Zorn's family. Tormack, among others like him, covets the power of Galtar's supernatural weapon, the Golden Lance, in order to combine it with the stolen ancient and indestructible Sacred Shield, which rightfully belongs to Goleeta and Zorn. For whoever holds both cannot be brought down in any form of combat. Also aiding Galtar and his friends is the powerful red dragon known as Ravens Claw. Further hindrances (plus comic relief) to this trio comes from inept father and son mercenaries Rak & Tuk, who have a history of double crossing others at every turn, claiming that it is the only work they know.

Supporting characters

  • Ither - Keeper of the Golden Lance, who eventually puts it into Galtar's care.
  • Vikor - Leader of raiders who also seeks the Golden Lance.
  • Pandat - The prince of a race called Nerms, who occasionally aid our central companions.
  • Marion A feral child who rescues and befriends Zorn.
  • Rava - Tormack's niece who allies herself with Galtar and Goleeta. She wore a magical gauntlet that could command fire and ice through the gemstones imbedded in it. The gauntlet also had a black gemstone that could be used to summon Raven's Claw. Rava gave this gauntlet to Goleeta.
