Although he's known as the most beloved heirs in all four kingdoms in the Immortal Realm, Robert wishes to be free from his draining relationship with his father, King James. Mallory, Robert's childhood friend, was in love with him. But he didn't feel the same. When Robert visited the Mortal Realm, Robert was swamped by greedy mortals when the royal guards followed him. During a run from the guards, Robert stumbles upon Laura, whom he immediately fell for. Robert was then introduced to Laura's life, especially her adoptive father, Grandpa Ben. When Robert returned to his own world, Mallory begged Robert to give her a chance to be with him. Hesitant, Robert agreed in the hopes that Mallory would stop bothering him if he did. Robert and James had another confrontation during a family meal. Robert returned to the Mortal Realm to see Laura again, only to feel as if he was the only one interested in the growing friendship between them. Robert's best friend, Prince Benjamin of Eastern Sun, paid him a visit and gave advice.

All Queen Amelia could do was scream and pray that her beloved son would survive.
