about this book: This book was written as a result of severe insomnia and day-time binging on badly made TV serials.

I kid you not. Imagine, if you will, a king who constantly neglects his own duties to run off gallavanting over the countryside, here as an experienced adventurer to whom no obstacle is insurmountable, there as an utter buffoon susceptible to the least subtle of parlor tricks and easily identifiable traps. What then, is his character? (Beyond the lazy writers who forget from one line to the next how they've written him in the first place)

Making it up in my head that he must have had help - secret help, for that matter, even he was not aware of - a hidden guardian who has a twofold job: Keep the king out of harm's way, but also make him look good at everything he does so that he doesn't catch on to his own failings.

And thus, our noble guardsman looking to curry favor with his monarch through his secret contributions to the king's ego was, in very real terms, born.
