Aurora and Her Lost Brother

Storyboard Description

Basically, I started thinking about who could be witches, so I was thinking of characters in pairs of 3. The only characters I could come up with were the three fairies in Sleeping Beauty. Anyways, Aurora has a younger twin named Borealis and the fairies give them blessings, but Borealis' are greater. Aurora as she is older becomes power-hungry, so she partners with Maleficent who uses the curse of the spinning wheel to both of their advantages. Aurora kills her father, the king, with the spinning wheel. Borealis then calls her out for it and Aurora becomes paranoid so she plans to kill him. Maleficent is confused because she only thought that Aurora wanted to become Queen. Aurora then sends out murderers to kill Borealis, but his son escapes and hopes for future revenge.
