When Sir Bob of Schneizereindeer returns from Zimbabwe, his knights organizes a meeting to tell Sir Bob some terrible news. His wife, Queen Phaedra, has been taken away by a dragon and locked up in its castle.
As the bravest knight in all of Schneizereindeer, Sir Bob undoubtedly chooses to go on an adventure to save his lover from the devilish dragon. From where Sir Bob’s from, every knight possesses a special ability, and for Bob, he could fly.
Sir Bob wastes no time and packs up for his journey to the notorious Dragon Tower. On his way, he meets a peasant shivering on the ground. Sir Bob descends.

Sir Bob beheads him immediately because Sir Nez is the most wanted man in Africa because of his infamous dragon that broke free from him, the exact dragon that took Queen Phaedra.

“Let’s not ask so many questions now, shall we? Now, I have a confession to make. I’m actually not Queen Phaedra of Seychelles.” replies the lover of Sir Bob.
“Then who are you exactly?”
The woman takes out a small bag from her pocket, and empties it in front of Sir Bob.
“You’re not… you can’t be… it’s not possible!”
“I am the tooth fairy. And this is my pet dragon that collects teeth for me when I’m gone.” says the tooth fairy, holding 52 teeth in her hands.
