|The Prince and the Raven|
|Name||The Prince and the Raven|
The Prince and the Raven was the last story Drosselmeyer was working on before his death. It tells the story of a Prince who vanquishes a crafty Raven, but the story was left unfinished. The title characters escaped from the book into Gold Crown Town and continued their battle. It ended when the Prince used forbidden magic to seal the Raven away and shattered his own heart.
As the series progresses, two more characters from the story are revealed; Princess Tutu herself, and the Prince's Knight, reincarnated as Fakir. Tutu was fated to vanish as a speck of light the moment she confessed her love for the Prince. Meanwhile, the Knight was torn in two by the Raven without landing even a single blow.
