When faced with a dragon, your best bet is to call for Eileen or Hanastrew to sort it out. (They definitely don't wait for St. George to turn up and see no reason why magiclal females, suitably trained, can't obliterate their own dragons. This is the nearest the Kingdom has to a feminist movement!).
When faced with a treacherous wizard, your best bet is to call for the Fairy Queen or Eileen to tackle him. You're in with no chance. They at least do have some chance of putting him in his place. (Eileen's view is that place is called Hell).
When faced with a wicked witch, your best bet is to call Eileen. She will either defeat the witch for you or be able to negotiate a deal with said witch if the latter feels she's been unfairly treated by the magical establishment and Eileen agrees with that assessment. This does not make Eileen popular with the magical establishment. If you're the one facing the witch, it probably won't make Eileen popular with you either.
