Storyboard Text

  • Tragic Hero: Azalea Agne
  • I shouldn't have trusted Diabolos so this is all my fault.
  • Hamartia
  • After her uncle murders her mother, and frames her father, Azalea is overcome with grief and anger
  • This is all my fault.
  • You will pay for this father!
  • HOW COULD YOU KILL YOUR OWN WIFE?
  • Hamartia Example
  • In the height of her emotions, she slips a poison into Azazel’s wine that was about to be sent down to Azazel's cell.
  • This is for mother!
  • Azalea (middle) was born to Anissa Alexopoulos of Pax (left) and Azazel Agne of Dolor (right). She currently lives in the kingdom of Dolor. Azalea also has an evil uncle named Diabolos (back right), who is power hungry, the viewer will believe for him to be good until later in the story when he shows his true intentions. Azalea is very clever and beautiful, but her ultimate fate is to poison her father.
  • Peripeteia
  • I killed my poor, innocent father.
  • Ha, curses! It was I who killed your mother and now that you've done the rest of the work by getting rid of your father, I will become King! I was going to let you take the easy route and marry me, but now I will tell the people who you really are a murderer.
  • Azalea’s tragic flaw is her impulsiveness, meaning that she is driven by emotions and will not think her actions through rationally.
  • Anagnorisis
  • An example of Azalea's hamartia is when she poisoned her father's food because she was caught up in her emotions and grief of her mother's death.
  • Catharsis
  • There is no one to grieve over my death, no one will miss me. I will soon see my parents, my mom who did nothing to deserve Diabolos wrath and my poor father, who died because of my impulse.
  • Diabolos, seeing Azalea as a threat, comes up with the idea to marry her so that she could not take his spot in the throne. Azalea refuses and Diabolos, caught up in his fury tells her it was him who killed her mother and since she did the rest of the work, all he had to do is get rid of her. Azalea is to be locked up in a cell and executed in a week's time.
  • While in the cell, Azalea begins to mull over her past choices. She realizes the weight of her actions. Azalea swears to herself that she will think before doing. In her last few days, Azalea skillfully pickpockets a dagger from an unsuspecting guard, little does Diabolos know this will be her last choice.
  • On the final day, with one last glance at the prison that once inhabited her wrongfully charged father, Azalea plunges the dagger into her heart.
