Once upon a time, long, long, long, long, long, long, ago, there were three raptor sisters, hatched beneath a lucky star. They lived in a wood together, they stole sheep and cattle together, and all in all, there was no tighter-knit hunting pride of matriarchal dromaeosauridae between the mountains and the sea.

The oldest was called SKRRKITTTT, which, roughly translated into something human vocal cords can pronounce, means Allie. She was oldest by approximately six minutes and cleverest by her own assessment. Second to claw free of her shell was RRRKIISH, known henceforth as Betty. She was quiet, good at sneaking, and fond of the way fireflies buzzed and glowed and crunched in one’s mouth when snapped up on a balmy summer evening. The last to emerge—the others had considered setting upon her egg before it finally began to crack—was SSSSSS, or Ceecee. She was the smallest of the three and the most dangerous for it. Her favorite thing in all the world beside her sisters was raw woodsman.

Happy was the trio—oh, aye, happier than liver and shrieks and the final pounce, warmer than blood and sun-drenched stone. But happy makes for a short story, love of my gizzard, and an uneventful one to boot. Let us set a snare in the path for our three beautiful raptor sisters. We shall give him a headful of hair as golden as a stolen egg’s yolk, skin as pale as a hatchling’s tooth, and eyes of a glorious ferny green. We’ll hang a title around his neck—first and only son of a king, so rich and privileged he never even bothered to try devouring his siblings in the nest—and we’ll set him a-riding aimlessly through the forest on a nice plump horse, wandered off from a royal hunt.
