Legend has it that the Emperor’ s greatest wish was to obtain the Dragon’s fireand so possess the greatest treasure in all the land. He desired the fire sobadly that one morning he decided to send his daughter, the most beautifulprincess in the whole kingdom, to speak with Orochie.
Princess Feng came to the hidden island and asked the dragon if he would be so kind as to give her his fire as it would make her father very happy. Orochiefell in love with the princess as soon as he saw her and without a dou bthe gave her the fire in exchange for her kiss and love.
Feng slowly approached and kissed him, and keeping his word, Oroch ie gave her his fire. What no one knew was that to give up his fire me ant his death.The grieving princess tried to save him, but it was too late. She then decided never to marry and to always guard the Dragon’s fire with her own life.
