Sir Lampton is an original character from The Land of Stories series. He first appeared in The Wishing Spell, ch 9. He is the Head of Queen Cinderella's Royal Guard of the Charming Kingdom.

Appearance and Personality

"He wore more badges on his uniform than any of the other guards, and he had a very thin, dark beard."[1]

Sir Lampton caught the twins trying to sneak into the palace and offered to show them around. He told them about the castle and its inhabitants. Later in the book, it turned out he was the one who secretly put Cinderella's glass slipper into their backpack to help. He explained that he knew their father, and recognized the twins straight away.[2]

In The Enchantress Returns, he guarded the twins in the Otherworld in the guise of a dog named Buster.

In A Grimm Warning, he rallied the Charming Soldiers to fight against the Grande Armée. His speech inspired the civilians of the kingdom to join the fight as well.[3]

In Beyond the Kingdoms, it was mentioned that he had been helping the twins find the Masked Man before the events of the book took place.[4] He and his army suffered great losses when the Winkies attacked the Charming Kingdom, but he and his men managed to escape and went into hiding in the forest with Sir Grant and his men.[5]


"Let's be the first ones to show these monsters that the Charming Kingdom is not for sale! Let's give them a taste of the Charming Army so they cower in fear when our brothers return from hiding to finish them off!"[6]
