Lost: Princess. Grateful of any assistance in reaquiring.
There is evil afoot! The princess in question was lost after abducting her. Now the kidnapper(s) seek help in finding her again. I imagine them to be a bit naive, socially inept, literal minded or just stupid. Think of a demon or golem following their orders to the letter or a comic relief type villain such as a horde of small vicious blundering cannibals constantly falling over one another. This is not meant to say anything about their other abilities, though, especially when it comes to a direct confrontation…
While I had some concrete images in mind respectively for D&D and Beutelschneider while writing this, I went with the broader fantasy appelation for the title. Also: Those guys.
Heroines and heroes of the day:
A sunday without heroes.
