Character’s Story Summary
As a young child, Rapunzel was kidnapped from the Royal Family by Mother Gothel. Rapunzel’s hair contained magical healing powers, hence why Mother Gothel wanted to Rapunzel for herself. Mother Gothel kept Rapunzel far away in a tower where no one could ever find her. Rapunzel has always dreamed of seeing the floating lanterns in person and on her birthday. While Mother Gothel was on a trip, Flynn Ryder was running away from castle guards and climbed into Rapunzel’s tower. Rapunzel knocked Flynn out using her frying pan. She devised a plan to make Flynn take her to see the floating lanterns. After awhile of convincing Flynn, he caved in and agreed. On their trip they stopped at The Snuggly Duckling where they broke out into a song about their dreams and goals for life. The characters at The Snuggly Duckling took care of Rapunzel and become friends with her and Flynn, by association. When Flynn and Rapunzel finally reached the Kingdom of Corona, they went around the town exploring each part of it since it was all so new to Rapunzel. Rapunzel learned that the lanterns were sent off every year on the birthday of The Lost Princess of The Kingdom of Corona. Shocking considering that was the same day Rapunzel was born on. Flynn surprised Rapunzel with a boat ride to watch the lanterns on the water. After that Rapunzel was tricked into going back to the tower by her supposed mother. This was when Rapunzel realized SHE was The Lost Princess. Flynn had arrived at the tower to help and save Rapunzel but was stabbed by Mother Gothel. Before Rapunzel could use her healing powers on Flynn, he chopped her hair off. Killing the power of the hair and turning Mother Gothel into dust. As Rapunzel cried holding onto the dead body of Flynn and golden flower glowed out from him. The same flower that originally held the magic that was in her hair. Unfortunately, Flynn did not come back. In the end Rapunzel returned to her real family, The Royal Family.

So I decided to call my Mother to let her know that I have left the tower. She is going to be so very mad with me. But it is better that I let her know I am doing well and that I am safe. After all I have not run into anyone or anything dangerous. Quite honestly everyone is very nice to me and I have all the help I need from my friend Flynn Ryder and now my friends at The Snuggly Duckling!
