Yeah..... 50th question... So here is a set of questions to celebrate
4 Questions which have a hidden theme...  1 clue for the THEME... Attempt only once.... Points given in Brackets... Total points = 10

1)    Saw a man in the movies that didn't have a heart
How I wish I could give him mine
Then I wouldn't have to feel it breaking all apart
And this emptiness inside would suit me fine
It's times like these
I wish I were the X
You could hurt me all you wanted
I'd never even know
Well...I'd give anything just to be the X
And I wouldn't have a heart and I wouldn't need a soul
ID the fictional character X (1)..... Enough clues in question.... 
Bonus point question : What is X's original name? (1)  
Ans : Tin Woodman...
BPQA : Nick Chopper... Tin is the 50th element...

     * has a royal palace.
     * does not have a straight line in its state boundary.
