The prince and the white cane

Once upon a time there was a young prince named Serhu. He was the son of a king who found himself without a kingdom, following a revolt of his people. The prince was born when the kingdom of Retinitis was at the height of its splendor, but a few years after his birth, a severe famine had brought misery among the people, so that it looked like a blanket of darkness had enveloped all spirits and all things.

Although Serhu did not know that his fate could be that of a prince, his character was that of a man, however brave and combative, and soon distinguished himself from all others for some unusual magical power. One day he picked up a branch of a tree, perfectly straight, with no blemishes or other ramifications.
