However, in the Sherwood forest Robin becomes their protector, training them to use weapons instead of pitchforks. He also finds the time to fall in love with Marian, a princess with a chastity belt who’s suffering because of an extremely prudish German governess, Broomhilde. Robin organizes the uprising with the help of Etci, the son of an African prince, the blind servant Blinkin and Little John, a large man of the forest.
