This Comic's Cast:

Princess (yes, that's her real name, apparently) comes from a deposed royal line (although there is the possibility she was adopted). Traveling with our heroes, she eventually settled (with the rest of them) in Veros/Jova, where she took over the democratically-elected office of Village Elder.

In other words, she earned it, no one is going to demean her by saying a "man" should be doing her job.

Also, she can change her outfits on the fly. It's a play on Zelda/Sheik from the Smash Bros. series where the character can change her outfit and attacks on the fly. Works exactly the same way (well, except for having the push Up+B to activate it).
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
