* ADayInTheLimelight: While Alise was definitely a main character in ''A Royal Family Tale'', she becomes TheProtagonist of ''Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today''. As of ''Royally Undercover'', it's going to be longer than a day. She is the new protagonist of the series.



*IWantSong: ''Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today'' is about her desire to explore the world and be more than just a bundle of "ribbons and curls" that knows a hundred different curtsies.



*RebelliousPrincess: It's downplayed greatly but still present. As seen in her IWantSong, she knows she has responsibilities as a princess and is fully okay with fulfilling them but she wants to have some adventures first. It's kind of like the practice of a "gap year" in real life.
-->'''Alise''': I know who I am and I'll take my place......I'll be a princess tomorrow but a pirate today!



First appearing in ''A Royal Family Tale'', Scully is a flying squirrel. At some point, he broke away from the rest and lived as a hermit.
