* '''Defied''': Serpentus deliberately ''avoided'' this, planning instead to make him into a [[ManBehindTheMan puppet ruler]] -- meaning he's more useful if he's well liked ''before'' taking the throne.

Prince Dikliss is actually a pretty decent guy.



* '''Deconstructed''': Dikliss is unpleasant thanks to spending his whole life dealing with the DeadlyDecadentCourt, constantly manipulated by everyone around him and treated as little more than a convenient pawn; a means to an end. His ArrangedMarriage to Velvet is just another instance of this, something he greatly resents and can't help thinking of whenever he sees her.
* '''Reconstructed''': ...He's still a prick, though, and Velvet doesn't want anything to do with him. Not when she has a nice guy like Kelvin around.
