How It Begins
You are the tsar's son, Prince Ivan: young and handsome, but with the dark, brooding nature of a Russian. You're the most eligible bachelor in the realm, but also the most reticent around the opposite sex. To escape the endless procession of beautiful women vying for your attention, you retreat alone to the forest to hunt and to brood.
Although it is the middle of the afternoon, little light penetrates the thick canopy of leaves above you. You have stopped on a north-south path to contemplate this thought: "The soul of another is a dark forest."
You carry a bow and a quiver slung over one shoulder. There is a huge chip on the other shoulder.
Firebird is almost exclusively on folk and fairy tales, mostly of Russian origin.
