Bright Fountain

A land terrorized by a fierce demon with no torso, bearing a gorgon-like head that turned all people to stone.

Sir Daniel of the Blossoming Valley defeated the demon – like Perseus with Medusa – by looking at his opponent only through a reflection in a mirror. The Count of the Bright Fountain became Daniel’s faithful companion. Daniel later saved him from beheading at the hands of a giant.
