When you hear the tale of Cinderella, do you ever wonder about the rats who were turned into coachmen by her fairy godmother?
Then do take a moment to consider.
As the story goes, they were captured, twisted into human form by powerful magic, and tossed onto a coach that had, only seconds before, been a pumpkin.
Few pause to ask themselves how the rat-coachmen felt about all this. And no one seems to know what became of them afterward.
Were they frightened? In pain? Did they survive the experience? Upon reflection, you may even pity the poor creatures.
We’re faring quite well, I assure you.
Better than well, in my case. For there’s more to the tale of Cinderella than has yet been revealed.
Now settle yourselves in comfort, and be sure you’ve plenty of provisions upon which to nibble, for you are about to hear the true story from Cinderella herself…and from me.
My name is Char.
In former days, they called me the Rat Prince.
