Dragonheart

Synopsis: The young, sickly King Einon was wounded in a battle. In order for him to survive, he is healed by Draco, a dragon. Some years later, Bowen, a dragon slayer, encounters Draco. The two team up to form a traveling duo that perform an act, but the act is only known by themselves. Bowen supposedly "slays" Draco and then collects a reward from the town or village that he protects by killing the dragon who had been "terrorizing" them. From there, Bowen and Draco must save the entire kingdom from the rule of the now evil King Einon, who is part of Draco and Draco a part of him.

Not bad.

But not good enough to live.

Mind if l sit down?

l don't have your energy.

Fight with your head.

Not your heart.

Straight.

Better, Einon.

But you're still dead.

Purpose, not passion.

No one ever found victory

in the dirt.

The peasants are revolting.

They've always been revoltin', Prince.

But now they're rebellin'.

King Freyne wants his son

to witness his noble victory.

There's nothing noble

about crushing desperate men.

They're traitorous scum!

The king commands!

Bring him!

You can come, too, nursemaid.

Die, you dog!

- l wish we were down there.

- No, you don't.

Yes, l do. Just to see you

in action, Bowen.

Yours would be

the finest blade on the field.

My blade was not made

for your father's slaughter.

He is my father, Bowen,

and he is the king.

Yes.

But when you are king,

remember today...

and the difference

between battle and butchery.

And remember the Old Code.

Then you'll be a greater king

than your father.

l promise, Knight...

l will be greater.

Freyne!

Now, Hewe, now!

- He's trapped!

- Einon!

Einon!

Einon, no!

Enough! Enough!

The battle's out there!

Father?

Die! lt's mine!

Einon! Einon!

l'm here, Einon!

l'm here, my King.

Dead, madam.

King Freyne,

your husband, slain.

ln here!

ln here, on the bed.

Get out! Out!

Out! Brok, out!

You stay, Bowen.

Forgive me, Queen Aislinn.

There's nothing to forgive.

His father's tyranny

brought him to this end.

He's beyond all help.

Not all.

A knight is sworn to valor.

Sworn to valor.

- His heart knows only virtue.

- Virtue.

His blade defends the helpless.

His might upholds the weak.

You must stay awake, my son!

- You must stay awake. Repeat the Code.

- The Code.

His might upholds the weak.

H-His word speaks only truth.

His wrath--

Undoes the wicked.

Brok, stay there.

Lord! Great one!

Your song is sad!

Are the stars shining tonight?

No. No bright souls

glitter in this darkness.

Leave us. Go.

Aislinn, daughter of the Celts.

Whose people loved your kind

and called you friend.

Ah, the king's son...

cruel and full of trickery.

- ls this why you've come,

dragonslayer's wife?

- Dragonslayer's widow!

This boy is not his father.

This knight here is his mentor.

He has taught him the Old Code.

l need your help.

The wound is deep.

You know what you ask.

l will teach him your ways.

He will grow in your grace.

He will grow just and good.

l swear.

No! The boy must swear.

Give me your sword, Knight.

Your sword!

Do not be afraid.

He can save you.

Now listen to me, boy.

Swear that your father's

blood lust and tyranny died with him.

Swear that you will live

and rule with mercy.

Come to me

and learn the Once-ways.

Now swear!

l swear.

He's dead!

Peace, Knight of the Old Code.

Witness the wonders

of an ancient glory.

Half my heart

to make you whole.

lts strength

to purify your weakness.

Live, and remember your oath.

l served the father only

for the sake of the son.

All my hopes rest on him.

Forgive a doubting fool.

Call when you need of me.

Ask what you will of me.

My sword, my service are yours.

Only remind him

always of his vow...

Knight of the Old Code.

Brok.

Your Majesty?

The Romans built

this great fortress.

l will rebuild it,

and mine will be greater.

lt will take many men, my Lord,

to rebuild this ruin.

Yes.

Yes, it will.

Not so rebellious now.

You should thank me, boy.

lt was my stroke made you king.

No, Brok, l want no martyrs.

Death should be a release,

not a punishment.

Look good, dog.

l'm the last thing

you'll ever see.

Burn the insolence

out of his eyes.
