The owl Cedric accompanies Graham through the entire game to provide commentary and advice. He has to be rescued from danger at several points, but the owl rarely says or does anything useful.


You play the role of King Graham, the only member of the royal family of the kingdom of Daventry left behind when the evil wizard Mordack imprisoned the royal family and vanished the castle. Luckily, you meet the only eye-witness--Cedric the Owl--who takes you to his master, the good wizard Crispin. Apart from his good advice, Crispin gives King Graham a piece of white snake and his old wand before King Graham and Cedric are off to find Mordack.

As is common with King's Quest games, the game's subtitle, Abscence Makes the Heart Go Yonder, is a variation of a well-known saying. The original saying is "absence makes the heart grow fonder."
