Additional details

A square peg in a round hole. Pangeran used to think that he didn’t fit anywhere until he realised that peculiarity is not something to be frowned upon. It helps him to go beyond conservative borders and limitations. After all, in times of massive uniformity, being a bit different could be revolutionary.
