About King Zog

As the ruler of Dreamland, King Zog is the typical tyrannical king you hear about in medieval times. He has his best interests in mind and not much else. He is also seen to be quite cruel, often teasing his son Derek mercilessly and yelling a lot especially at his daughter, Bean. It is assumed that his personality became so as a result of his great loss—the loss of his beloved and “perfect” wife Queen Dagmar. She was turned to stone 15 years prior and he has missed her dearly ever since. In an attempt to save her, he passionately seeks for the Elixir of Life to restore her life.

Unfortunately, his insensitivity and inability to deal with emotions brought about by his bitterness over his wife’s death has caused a huge rift between himself and his daughter, Bean. Instead of having a healthy relationship with her, she was instead brought up by her handmaiden Bunty and numerous drinking buddies.
