"Values" is a word that appears frequently today in corporate annual reports, vision statements and anniversary histories. An organization's values are those principles, ideas and ideals that its members adhere to, often without consciously recognizing that they are doing so. Values are the glue that holds an organization together, in good times and especially in bad ones.
King Harold is the husband of Queen Lillian,and father to Princess Fiona. He is voiced by John Cleese.
King Harold makes his debut in Shrek 2. When his daughter Fiona arrives at the castle with her new husband, he is surprised that they are both ogres. King Harold had secretly made a promise to the Fairy Godmother that her son Prince Charming would marry Fiona. King Harold hires Puss in Boots to assassinate Shrek. King Harold then succumbs to guilt when Fiona finds out that Shrek is not around. Harold at first refuses when the Fairy Godmother asks him to give the love potion to Fiona that will cause her to fall in love with Prince Charming, because he recoils from this invasion of her free will, but he is forced to acquiesce by some dark threat of disclosure; in the event, when Fiona states that she loved the old Shrek (rather the 'new' one that Prince Charming is pretending to be), Harold swaps the cup which contains the potion for his own. At the ball toward the end of the film, Harold protects Fiona and Shrek from a blast of magic from Fairy Godmother's wand. He is finally transformed into his original form of the Frog Prince when he is hit by the Fairy Godmother's magic wand. The wife seems not at all unhappy about this turn of events. After this, he apologizes to Shrek and accepts him into the family, his wife saying that he is more of a man for accepting Shrek and Fiona's marriage than he ever was when he was actually human.
King Harold makes a very brief appearance in Shrek The Third as a frog king where he sadly dies of a sickness (it is stated in other materials such as The Legend of Shrek, a storybook, that the transition between human to frog mixed up his age and accelerated the aging process). He tells Shrek on his deathbed that he and Fiona are next in line for the throne of Far Far Away, and Shrek refuses as he cannot imagine an ogre as king. The king dies after telling Shrek about Fiona's cousin Arthur.
King Harold made his final appearance in Shrek Forever After. In the film, he appears very briefly in a couple of flashbacks; the first one shows him and Lillian about to make a deal with Rumpelstiltskin, but they break it off at the last moment. In the alternate reality of the second flashback, Harold and Lillian literally disappear after signing over the kingdom to Rumpelstiltskin. At the end of the movie the original timeline is restored, leaving the current time a year or so after Harold's death (as seen in Shrek the Third). However, there is a large painting of him in which the face moves, indicating that his spirit inhabits the picture. Unlike the previous films he is not seen in his frog form at any point.
The king's role is a partly reference to another character Cleese once starred; Basil Fawlty, from the sitcom Fawlty Towers. The king once makes a reference to 'his old war wound' (UK version - in the US version, this is "the old hunting wound"), to avoid his wife. This is obviously based on Fawlty's character, who often uses his 'honourable war wound' (a shrapnel shot from the Korean War) as an excuse, to rescue himself from displeasing situations. Also, the two characters share similar character traits.

The Shoyru is a small dragon-like Neopet originally created by a user in a "Create-A-Pet" competition run on the site and then released on April 20, 2000. Since that time, their basic design has remained relatively unchanged. The Shoyru's original side profile had created the misconception that they only had a single eye. This was remedied slightly with the introduction of Neopets 2.0 in 2007.
Despite being draconic in appearance, Shoyrus do not have the ability to breathe fire unlike other dragon-inspired Neopets such as Draiks and Scorchios. They are however described as fiery in terms of their personality - being loyal to those that treat them kindly but never forgiving of those that don't.
Shoyrus are fantastic flyers that love to soar through the skies and play hide and seek in the clouds. They are generally friendly pets but do have a mischievous streak to them, especially during the full moon. Shoyrus are tough little Neopets that, with the proper training and care, have the potential to become great warriors.
Shoyrus have the distinction of placing first in Neopet popularity. They comprise roughly 6.2% of all Neopets created. In the Neopets Trading Card Game, Shoyrus are associated with the element of Air.
