Hapless Hero Arthur

Look out, evildoers! Here comes Arthur, the axe-wielding retainer to Elise, princess of Nohr!
Arthur comes from the underground city of the Nohrian capital. His parents instilled in him the value of justice, and so he became a hero of the streets, helping people in need and preserving the peace.
Unfortunately, despite his well-meaning and valorous nature, Arthur has been cursed with the worst luck imaginable. Calamitous pratfalls are a daily occurrence for him, and at one point, he was even struck right in the head by lightning. Still, he won’t be discouraged from doing the right thing!
And so, Arthur continues to reach a hand out to those in need. He’s a Hero in every sense of the word, and with his unwavering dedication to justice, he’ll keep the Order of Heroes safe!
