|Amon's Dungeon Arc >>|
1 | 2 | 3
Aladdin and Alibaba are reunited at last. But the tyrannical Jamil, who doesn't see slaves as human beings, uses Goltas to navigate around the fiery traps of the dungeon, and soon catches up to them.
Young Jamil torturing little Morgiana
Aladdin and Alibaba are awed at the city, and Jamil kicks Morgiana to vent his anger at Morgiana's answer. One of the slimes imitate Jamil's words and repeats "you imbecile" multiple times. Meanwhile, Aladdin and Alibaba fly to the center of the city, and they arrive inside to see a bunch of old treasure. Then, Goltas appears and collapse in front of them, and while the young boys are preoccupied with Goltas, Morgiana kicks Aladdin across the room. Jamil orders Morgiana to go after Aladdin as he deals with Alibaba. Jamil asks him why he has to suffer so much, and the two prepare to sword fight. The arrogant Jamil tries to strike Alibaba's leg, and Alibaba evades Jamil's moves easily. Alibaba knocks down Jamil down, and Jamil asks Alibaba how he is able to read the old language, Tran. Jamil yells out and orders Morgiana to save him. Alibaba tries to ask Morgiana to go with him only to be thrown by Morgiana into the stairs. Jamil laughs hysterically and pets Morgiana like a good girl. He walks over to step on Alibaba repeatedly, and Jamil orders Morgiana to kill Alibaba. Morgiana remembers all the horrific things that Jamil did to her and slaves. She hesitates to kill Alibaba until Aladdin destroys the sword Morgiana was holding. A bunch of Rukhs fly by, and Aladdin helps Alibaba up. He asks Jamil to give back his flute, and when Jamil will not do that, the Rukhs surround Aladdin. The white light binds Morgiana, and Jamil is awed at Aladdin's powers. Jamil recalls a man foretelling a vision about a young Magi coming one day to make Jamil, a king.
Aladdin to Jamil: You're not worthy to be king
Once Morgiana gets free, she tries to drop kick Aladdin, but she gets bind into a ball of light. Jamil gives back Aladdin's flute and asks Aladdin to make him king. Aladdin tells Jamil that he is worthless, and he goes to shake hands with Alibaba. Suddenly, flames erupt with a Djinn appearing. Amon asks everyone who is the next king, and he spots Aladdin and Alibaba. Ugo emerges from the flute and explains everything to Amon. Amon answers Aladdin's questions about Magi whose purpose is to select a king and guide them. While the happy Alibaba goes out taking the gold and packing it, Aladdin asks Amon who he is. Suddenly, someone strikes the tower. Amon creates an exit from a pillar of light. Alibaba asks Jamil and Morgiana to hurry and escape with them. Goltas grabs Morgiana and tells her that he will not leave this place. He tells her to go back because she is different and hasn't killed anyone (implied). He severs the chains between Morgiana's legs. As the three escapes, Amon hitches a ride into Alibaba's dagger, and Morgiana watches Goltas carries his master to their death. Alibaba talks about his dreams and informs Aladdin that he has to stop by Balbadd. He states that if Aladdin wasn't here, he wouldn't clear this dungeon. Aladdin reminds Alibaba about the caravan and his bravery. The two make their promises to go on more adventures.
Afterwards, Morgiana finds herself on the outskirts of Qishan, and Alibaba finds himself greeted by his townspeople. Somewhere in the plains, a group of horse riders find Aladdin sleeping soundly on the ground.
