Interesting Facts About The Prince From Prince Of Persia.
Yuri Lowenthal did not voice The Prince in Warrior Within
The original voice actor for the Prince, Yuri Lowenthal, did not provide the voice for the sequel of Sands of Time, The Warrior Within. In Warrior Within, Robin Atkin Downes gave the voice to the Prince.
Yuri provided the reason as the Warrior Within’s tone was much darker than its predecessor, and the Prince needed the dark and mature voice. Some of the well-known voice roles of Robin Atkin Downes are Prophet of Regret in Halo 2, Medic in Team Fortress 2, Travis Touchdown in No More Heroes.
The Reason Behind The Prince’s Violent Nature
The Prince from Warrior Within is more violent and mature than he is in the Sands of Time. Why is that? Well, there is a reason for that. The Prince, between the events of the Sands of Time and Warrior Within, accidentally initiated the war with India and at the same time released a mysterious race called Daevas.
During the war with India, his mother, Queen Mehri, dies. And during this time, he is constantly chased by the guardian of timeline, Dahaka, to kill him as he had prevented his own death. The death of his mother and crushing knowledge of his death following him make him more and more violent by the day.
