Main Article Return to Dark Castle

In Return to Dark Castle, Duncan is not the main character, instead, his nephew, Bryant holds the position.

 End Spoilers

Prince Duncan as a character[]

Prince Duncan never talks, except to make "woah" sounds, and such. By the sound of the intro of Return to Dark Castle, there is a chance he may not actually be a prince, and just calls himself that. Additionally, in the first game he was unnamed, and was only given a name in the second game. Is Prince Duncan crazy for attempting to topple the Black Knight's throne? Or is he just trying to be heroic?
