Instead of thinking about that, I have decided to create another back story for Phod. Here it is:
Phod the Dragon Slayer
Once upon a time, in a land not to far away, their lived a dog named Phod. Phod was a handsome and sweet boy. He lived in his village and was happy.
Life in the village was good until one night an ogre came and snatched Phod out of bed. The mean old stinky ogre took him deep into the forest and tied him to a tree. Here Phod was to wait for a dragon to come. This dragon was going to eat him. Phod was afraid. However, Phod was a smart dog and had a plan.
When the dragon came Phod said: "Oh wise and powerful dragon, I submit to being your offering. However, I know you are an amazing hunter and rather than just eating me here on this tree, would prefer to hunt me. If you let me go I can be your real prey."
The dragon thought about this and said: "Things have been a bit boring lately. Let's have a chase. I will give you a 2 minute head start to make it interesting. I will even close my eyes to not watch which way you are going."
The dragon untied Phod, closed his eyes and started counting. Quickly Phod sniffed the air. He smelt something that was going to help him and he took off to the south. He ran as fast as his legs could carry him. Just as he approached his target, he heard the dragon coming. Phod kept running and as the dragon's long back talon was about to close around his head, Phod leaped. He landed with a splash in the water. The dragon crashed in the water too. Since dragons can't swim or fly if their wings get wet, the dragon quickly drowned. Phod, who is an excellent swimmer, was able to swim away.
The only mark from his encounter with the dragon, is a little scar on his nose.
Phod wandered the country side, looking for more dragons to slay, until finally he found his way to his forever home, far away from dragons.
|Yep, I slayed it good!|
