  • Our kingdom of... will henceforth and forever no longer serve justice by any means of chance, nor by any irrational or barbaric means.

  • Direct Characterization of the Princess: Page 4: "The king had a daughter with a soul as fervent and imperious as his own." This is evidence of the fact that she is passionate and strong-willed, and once she  made her decision she get it done. "She loved with him with an ardor that had enough barbarism in it to make it exceedingly warm and strong."  I think that this statement shows how  her inescapable barbarism can actually be used for loving the man more, hence it moved her to choose the lady. Page 5: " He saw by that power of quick perception given to those whose souls are one, that she knew..."   This is an example of the closeness and unity that the princess and her lover obviously have. It seems as though no one knew the princess better than  that man did, and he trusted her decision. He is able to tell things about her only by looking at her, and this leads me think that because he knew her that well, and her trusted her, she led him to safety.

  • Indirect Characterization of the Princess:  Page 5: "From the moment that the decree had gone forth that her lover should decide his fate in the king's arena, she had thought of nothing, night or day, but this great event..."  This implies that the princess is interested and fascinated with whatever concerns people she cares about.  "She had done what no other person had done- she had possessed herself of the secret of the two doors." We can learn from this statement how powerful and determined the princess is. She will go to any measures to get what she wants. Page 6: "How often...had she started in wild horror...as she thought  of her lover opening the door on the other side of which waited the cruel fangs of the tiger." The princess is horrified by the thought of her loving getting killed, but also she is pushed to the point of self despair when thinking about the alternative.
