  • I am the ancient ghost, Troponin, and we will tell the story of how our bond helped save the day
  • Hello there, I am the ancient ghost of princess Calcium Ion.
  • I was a princess of the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum.
  • my kingdom was fighting a war with the Actin Filament Kingdom.
  • Their king, Tropomyosin, refused to share the land with us...
  • I was prince Troponin from the Actin Filament kingdom.
  • My father, Tropomyosin, refused to unite with the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum Kingdom. But Calcium Ion and I wanted peace!
  • Calcium Ion and I declared our BOND to King Tropomyosin.
  • Our bond, the bond between Princess Calcium Ion and Prince Troponin, convinced King Tropomyosin to shift... he was not stubborn any longer.
  • When king Tropomyosin heard our love, he was so moved.
  • I am King Tropomyosin. I am so very sorry for being so stubborn...
  • Once I saw the bond between Princess Calcium Ion and Prince Troponin, I knew I needed to change!
  • From now on, I will not hide behind hatred. I will EXPOSE myself to kindness. As my first act of kindess, i will expose my Binding Sites to the poor Myosin Head peasants.
  • Never forget how the bond between Calcium Ion and Troponin moved King Tropomyosin and exposed him to kindness.
