Danny (Ciro in Italian) is a Neapolitan Mastiff who is one of the Royal Guards. He’s fond of his new friend, Kate, and does his best to help out, despite being the butt of most of his friends’ jokes. He is determined to make Eva pay for her crimes against the kingdom.
Danny has lop ears and a wrinkled face, which are the signature traits of a Mastiff. He is tan with a grayish brown muzzle and a white spot on his lower chest. He has light brown eyes, and wears a blue Royal Guard collar with dark blue paw prints on it.
Little is known about Danny's backstory, but it is known that he became a Royal Guard prior to the events of the show, but it was rather informal as he didn't completely finish his training.
He is cheerful, lively, and a little slow in the head, but always ready and willing to protect Princess Ava and the Pocket Kingdom at the drop of a hat. Danny is very talkative and will always have something to say, even if it is brutally honest. He is loyal and caring toward his friends, though he can be stubborn in certain situations.
Occasionally he is disobedient and lazy, and even greedy, but William is always there to bring him to order.
He was also known for being the first one to show up in class.
- Oddly enough, Danny resembles more of an English Mastiff than a Neapolitan one.
- In both US and UK dubs, he speaks with a Yorkshire accent accompanied with a lisp.
- There are some speculation of Danny representing an Italian stereotype. He is known to be a huge foodie, and is often described as being a bit sluggish in the mind, lazy, and even impolite. It is very much evident that the show pokes fun at the stereotype through him.
