“Bearer of a valiant and courageous heart, this fathomless teal reveals the strength of the brave Knight’s convictions with his gleaming, fiery core.”
If you’re not familiar with the legend of Saint George, here is the short version: a dragon who lived in a lake within the town was terrorizing the locals, bringing plague and despair. To appease the beast, the people fed it two sheep a day. When they ran out of sheep, they implemented a lottery system to select children to be fed to the dragon. One day, the King’s own daughter was chosen. Grief-stricken, he offered half his kingdom and lots of riches if they would spare his child. Refusing all offers of a bribe, the townspeople dressed the girl as a bride and sent her to the lake.
Saint George rode around the area near the lake and spotted the girl. Ignoring her insistence that he leave immediately, he engaged her in a discussion. Not long after, the dragon emerged. Saint George charged at it on horseback, stabbing it in the neck with his lance, seriously wounding the creature. Using the girl’s girdle as a leash, they led the cowed dragon to the town.
Saint George told the townsfolk he would kill the dragon if they converted to Christianity. They did, and they rode the body out on four ox-carts. The king built a church to the Virgin Mary and Saint George on the place the dragon was killed, and healing water that cured all ailments flowed from its altar.
Violent story, huh? If Disney ever wanted to make an animated feature of it, they’d have to add in some singing bunnies and maybe a wisecracking falcon or something.
Saint George is a deep greenish teal packed with holographic shimmer.
It’s a part of the Legends collection. I own Dragon, Ascalon and Princess Sabra.
It’s a teal for sure. Sometimes it look quite green, and other times it looks more blue.
It’s definitely a keeper. What do you think of it? Do you think I have a future as a storyteller, or should I let Hans Christian Andersen keep that title?
