|Title||Lance Strongbow, Arnwaldo Schnitz (true name), Mr. Schnitz|
|Friends||Rapunzel Corona, Eugene Fitzherbert/Flynn Rider, Pub Thugs, Angry and Red|
|Enemies||the Baron, Weasel, the Royal Guards|
Arnwaldo Schnitz was orphaned at a young age. In his youth, his only friend was another small boy in the orphanage named Eugene Fitzherbert. The two were as close as brothers, and considered themselves family. Once they grew older and left the orphanage, Arnwaldo and Eugene turned to a life of crime under the aliases Lance Strongbow and Flynn Rider, respectively. The duo were also accompanied by an even more crooked thief called the Baron, who betrayed them during a robbery involving two nobles and Queen Arianna of Corona. At some point, however, Lance and Eugene were separated, the former having been arrested and sent to prison. The two would not see or hear from one another for eight years. In "Queen for a Day", even, Lance joins the rescue mission led by Eugene to save Rapunzel's parents after they were lost in a raging blizzard. To Lance (and the Pub Thugs), risking his life for the king and queen was a way of thanking the monarchs for giving him a second chance despite his controversial past.
Lance is shown to be suave, charming and quick on his feet. Because of his former thieving life and upbringing, he has become a bit misguided and untrustworthy. When first introduced, he is almost immediately presented as a pathological liar that manipulates those around him to get what he wants. Lying and stealing are about as far as Lance was willing to go as a thief, however. He is quite harmless beyond that, even going as far as to apologize for knocking a man (presumably a guest) out after he and Eugene broke into the Baron's home. And though his lies and thievery caused a great deal of trouble, he was willing to apologize and admit his mistakes, despite initially justifying his wrongful actions as simple, "what we (he and Eugene) grew up on". To his core, Lance is a warm-hearted person and cares for his friends. By the end of "The Return of Strongbow", he remorsefully took the blame for the conflict caused in the episode, mostly for the sake of Eugene, and his relationship with Rapunzel. He also made good with the treasure he stole by donating it to charity. In the following episodes of the Tangled series (most notably "Pascal's Story" and "The Way of the Willow"), it is shown that Lance's kindness and loyalty has earned him the privilege of being a welcomed guest at the castle, and close friend of the royal family.
Powers and Abilities Edit
Lance possesses no special or magical abilities, making him a normal, everyday human man. He does however possess skills in thieving, string weaving and even cooking, which got him a job as the Snuggly Duckling's new chef (since Attila went into business with Monty at his sweet shop).
Role in the Crossover Edit
For being Eugene's friend and is trying to turn his life around, Rapunzel is shown to be kind to Lance.
