Characters: Magi Sindria Kingdom

Sindria Kingdom

Sinbad's own country founded on a small island to the south of Balbadd. It's home to refugees and immigrants from other countries, creating a diverse and peaceful land made successful through tourism and trading. Also known as the "City of Dreams", it's the core of the "Seven Seas Alliance."

    Sinbad 

Sinbad

The King of Sindria and the leader of the Seven Seas Alliance. He captured the very first dungeon, and went on to capture six more after that.

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (Japanese), Matthew Mercer (English)

  • Fights Like a Normal: During the Balbadd arc. Justified because all of his metal vessels were stolen.
  • Foil: Underneath his good-natured smile, Sinbad is the Darker and Edgier version of Alibaba.
  • Former Teen Rebel: Sinbad was originally somewhat of a revolutionary, as the only reason why he entered his first dungeon was to get the power he needed to change his country.
  • Founder of the Kingdom
  • Gold and White Are Divine: Sinbad's character design combines this with Purple Is Powerful.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He chastises Alibaba and Hakuryuu for their weaknesses, and is more than happy to use military might to crush anyone who threatens Sindria.
  • The Good King: He is unconditionally adored by his people, and puts them first in every situation.
  • Guile Hero: Lampshaded by Ja'far. It's not surprising considering the world he lives in.
  • Hand or Object Underwear: Does it even need an explanation? He's even given the nickname "Leaf King" in the Japanese fandom, which is especially funny because "Leaf King" is a homophone for "High King".
  • Handsome Lech: He's slept with countless women in his time, and made a move on twice that many. To the extent that his subordinates totally believe he took advantage of Kougyoku.
  • The Heart: Of all of Sindria, and especially his generals.
  • Hero of Another Story: Hell, with the way his past experiences have been alluded to, his story has easily taken up another adventure-packed manga series. See it yourself.
  • Honor Before Reason: There are many instances in which Sinbad has to choose between his duty as a world leader and his ideals. This largely reflects that, despite some of his other less morally shiny actions, Sinbad is at heart still the same idealistic young man who wanted to change the world he was in the beginning.
    • When a starving mother who was going to rob a noble's home is going to accept a piece of leftover food thrown on the ground by said noble, Sinbad stops her and lets her and her companions rob the noble as long as they don't kill anyone. Later he declares that he wants to help the Fog Troupe because the King is unjust, which is insane because he's the king of another sovereign nation and had even agreed to defeat said Fog Troupe for said unjust King. Then, he offers to provide refuge and haven for Fog Troupe rebels if the King of Balbadd tries to crush them without further negotiations.
      • This can also be considered an inversion of the trope, as Sinbad cares more about doing what's right than honoring his business dealings.
    • Subverted in Chapter 212, when Sinbad tells Alibaba that he will use any dirty trick to protect Sindria.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: The first time Sinbad pulls out his Djinn Equip almost makes one forget that we met him wandering naked in a jungle.
  • Like Father, Like Son: He and his father are incredibly similar in both looks and personality.
  • Living Legend: There's basically no one in-universe who hasn't heard of Sinbad and his adventures. That the latter have been written down and published helps.
  • Magic Knight: He has a incredible amount of magoi, and is able to manipulate it even without any djinn vessels.
  • Magnetic Hero: He attracted an entire country's worth of followers.
  • Man in White: Befitting his kingly stature, as well as evoking a traditional image of the Arabian Nights.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Is quite willing to use manipulation and underhanded schemes to gain power, and to protect Sindria. Kougyoku has already become his puppet, before its revealed that he's been using her as a unwitting spy.
  • The Mentor: Towards most of his Eight Generals, and Alibaba too.
  • Mind Rape: Used Zepar to turn Kougyoku into a Manchurian Agent, and is possibly doing the same to two other people.
  • Mr. Exposition: Occasionally, due to his status as the Seen It All Always Someone Better Mentor.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Even in a series as chock full of fanservice as Magi, nobody does it half as good as Sinbad. Especially with official artwork like this.
  • The Munchausen: Played with in one omake. Though he did have legitimately amazing stories.
  • Mysterious Past: The only things we know about his past currently are tantalizing mini-flashbacks Sinbad refers to when giving advice to the next generation. Subverted though, with the arrival of Sinbad's Adventures.
  • Naked First Impression: Has this with Aladdin and Morgiana.
  • Naked People Are Funny: He even takes his clothes off while sleeping sometimes.
  • Nice Guy: In the beginning, while still running around naive and ignorant of political intrigue, Sinbad was at an ungodly level of nice. Hell, he was even nice to Ja'far when they first met. Now he's still nice but he's developed a dark side too.
  • Nice Hat: He's got a pimped out turban with feathers and jewels.
  • No Badass to His Valet/No Hero to His Valet: Most of the time, his generals totally do not give him the respect he deserves as Sindria's founder and king.
  • Not So Different: It's slowly revealed that while their execution is different, Sinbad is just as power-hungry as the Kou Empire. Only where Kou relies upon brute force, Sinbad tends to manipulate people into serving his needs.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Sinbad acts like a Pointy-Haired Boss a lot (he's even got the pointy hair!), but when he gets serious...

Eight Generals

Sindria Kingdom's strongest eight warriors and advisors to King Sinbad.

    In General 

    Jafar 

Ja'far

The Sane General.
One of Sinbad's eight generals who is immensely loyal towards him. He used to be a child assassin of an organization called "Sham Lash", that served the Parthevia Empire.

Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai (Japanese), Lucien Dodge (English)

    Masrur 

Masrur

Silent but deadly.
One of Sindria's eight generals, who used to be a gladiator in the Reim Empire. Like Morgiana, he is also a former slave and a descendant of the Fanalis Tribe.

Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya (Japanese), Keith Silverstein (English)

    Sharrkan 

Sharrkan

He has a good reason for bragging.
One of Sindria's eight generals. Regarded as the best swordsman in Sindria. He is assigned by Sinbad to train Alibaba in swordsmanship. Often gets into fights with a fellow general, Yamraiha. He came from Heliohapt.

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese), Ray Chase (English)

  • Ambiguously Brown: Subverted. It takes a while, but we eventually discover that he comes from the Fantasy Counterpart Culture of Ancient Egypt, which makes his skin tone justified.
  • Badass Teacher
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Yamraiha.
  • Berserk Button: Hurting or trying to kill Alibaba will result in it being pressed.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Has shades of this with Alibaba.
  • Bishōnen
  • Black Swords Are Better
  • Butt Monkey: His infatuation with Yamraiha is constantly played for laughs, if it doesn't involve kicking ass he's hopeless at it, and his kohai Masrur is always picking on him.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Word of God says that his biggest concern is how to approach Yamraiha.
  • Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest: He's a womanizer who frequents brothels but can't do anything around Yamaraiha, except get into arguments with her.
  • Chained by Fashion
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Despite being something of a womanizer himself, he is disgusted by Sinbad's playboy ways, which could also be because Yamaraiha has been on the receiving end of them.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: When Yamraiha admits that Sinbad tried to grope her whilst drunk in the past, Sharrkan is clearly dismayed, even though the generals are all used to Sinbad's behavior.
    • Even better, after hearing that Yam's preference for older men with beards was because she couldn't get over her "first man" with whom she would bathe and stay up all night (in Pisti's words, but it's actually just her father figure, Mogamett), Sharrkan freaks out and goes straight to the Corner of Woe.
    • And when Yamraiha is fangirling over Yunan (a magic-user, the type of man Pisti said would be right for her), Sharrkan starts sweating. Profusely.
    • Non-romantic example: When Alibaba says that he had other mentors while training in Reim (Shambal at Magoi Manipulation and Muu at swordfighting), Sharrkan got pissed off and said he "felt betrayed", since he was supposed to be Alibaba's sole mentor.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond
  • The Exile: Sharrkan's reason for being in Sindria is because he was exiled from Heliohapt.
  • Glass Cannon: Sharrkan is very deadly with his sword, but has low stamina and low Magoi, so he can only use his household vessel for a few minutes in one go.
  • Handsome Lech: Spends a lot of time in the pleasure district.
  • Implausible Fencing Powers: From monster to feast.
  • Ladykiller in Love: This happened to him when he fell in love with Yamraiha. According to an answer Ohtaka gave to a question in the Magi Encyclopedia, this is why he hasn't really gotten anywhere with her. He can smooth talk a woman out of her clothes, but when he actually has feelings for the lady in question, he unfailingly manages to screw things up.
    "He has the technique but he�s the type to lose his composure when he himself falls in love."
  • Master Swordsman
  • Sexy Mentor: Oh yeah.
  • Sword and Sorcerer: Sword to Yamraiha's Sorcerer. They do play mentor to the main Sword and Sorcerer pair in the series.
  • True Love is Exceptional: His type of woman is the loose, easy kind that a man can have a quick score with. In other words, call girls and the like. However, he fell in love with Yamraiha, a woman who takes relationships very seriously and who is probably the farthest thing from "easy."
  • Tsundere: A little bit to Yamraiha. Most notably when he finds out about her preference for older men with beards.
    Sharrkan: "Hey, stupid girl! Look! Since you were so frustrated, I grew out a beard myself. I just felt like it though, okay? It's not like a did it for you or anything!"
  • Warrior Prince: Turns out his brother is the King of Heliohapt, but Sharrkan was deprived of his title.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Humorously, Sharrkan is embarrassed by women's belly buttons. He doesn't react to boobs or butts, but belly buttons. It's a cultural thing.
  • Whip Sword: Sort of how his Household Vessel works.
  • Work Hard, Play Hard: Very serious when it comes to swordplay, but refuses to practice once the allocated time is over.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: He puts Alibaba through some wrestling holds as punishment for having other mentors.

    Yamraiha 

Yamraiha

Hogwarts wishes she would teach there.
One of Sindria's eight generals who came from Magnostadt. She is a prodigious sorceress who specializes in water magic. Later in she is assigned by Sinbad to train Aladdin in magic manipulation. She often gets into fights with a fellow general, Sharrkan.

    Hinahoho 

Hinahoho

Don't fear him. He likes to play with children!
One of Sindria's eight generals. Hinahoho met Sinbad when he was still a young teen. He came from the Imuchakk tribe in the far north. His wife died some time ago, leaving him alone to raise their children.

Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (Japanese), Tony Oliver (English)

    Pisti 

Pisti

This little girl gets more action than you.
One of Sindria's eight generals, she came from Artemyra. While she looks like a young cheerful girl, she is in fact 18 years old. She likes animals and is quite popular with men.

Voiced by: Rumi Ookubo (Japanese), Christine Marie Cabanos (English)

    Spartos 

Spartos

He won't take part in the vulgar activities of his king.
One of Sindria's eight generals. He came from Sasan, a religious country and while he doesn't need to follow Sasan's religious teachings anymore, he still chooses to honor some of them.

Voiced by: Wataru Hatano (Japanese), Sam Riegel (English)

    Drakon 

Drakon / Dragul Nol Henrius Govius Menudias Partenuvonomias Dumid Os Kortanon

There's still hope for you; this guy has a beautiful wife.
One of Sindria's eight generals, stated by Sinbad to be "a sincere man". He was once a devoted soldier of the Parthevia Empire who opposed Sinbad.

Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (Japanese), Patrick Seitz (English)

  • Affectionate Nickname: In his youth he was called Dragul Jr. or just Junior by his family and close friends.
  • Badass Cape
  • Bishounen: In the bonus spin-off manga Sinbad's Adventures, we see that Drakon was once quite the looker.
  • Blue Blood: He comes from one of Parthevia's most distinguished noble military families.
  • Bodyguard Crush: He had feelings for the princess of the Parthevia Empire, even though she was engaged to his elder brother.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Barbarossa's Cain.
  • Childhood Friends: With Serendine Dikumenowlz Du Parthevia, the princess of the Parthevia Empire.
  • A Father to His Men: Is mentioned that he enjoys teaching his subordinates and seems to have a close relationship with them, in an extra, it is shown that they seem honored to be able to drink with him during the festival. And even when he was 14 he somewhat displayed this.
  • Foregone Conclusion: From Sinbad's Adventures, we know he will become a lizard man.
  • Four-Star Badass: While all of the Eight Generals technically fit this thanks to their titles, Drakon seems to fit the most, as the extras in Volume 9 imply that he is the commander of Sindria's armies.
  • Happily Married: To the most supportive and understanding wife in the world, one assumes.
  • Improbable Age: See Young and in Charge below.
  • Lizard Folk: He has a draconian body.
  • Meaningful Name: Subverted. At first it seems like he's called Drakon on account of his draconic appearance, but it's actually just a nickname given to him by Sinbad, because his actual name was too long. He only became a dragon later on.
  • Military Brat: Was the youngest son of a distinguished military family of Parthevia, and had this initial impression on Sinbad when they first met.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: He was extremely devoted to Parthevia when he was young.
  • Nightmare Face
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His real name isn't Drakon, but everyone else calls him that because his real name is an...
  • Overly Long Name: His full name is Dragul Nol Henrius Govius Menudias Partenuvonomias Dumid Os Kortanon. Yeah, we can see why Sinbad decided to simply call him Drakon.
  • Ring of Power: Well, technically an Earring of Power, since that's his household vessel.
  • Sibling Triangle: Serendine, the woman he loved, was engaged to his elder brother, Barbarossa.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • This Is Unforgivable: Combined with I'll Kill You!, this occurs for Drakon on two separate occasions; one Played for Drama and the other Played for Laughs.
    • Played humorously, when after he meets Sinbad in Baal's dungeon, and Sinbad then decides to shorten his name.
    • Played seriously, when after his elder brother Barbarossa tells him that he is a disgrace to their family, and then proceeds to condemn him to die in Valefor's Dungeon.
  • The Rival: Was this to Sinbad in their younger years.
  • Those Two Guys: He is seen together with Hinahoho most of the time.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: At some point, he went from being a Jerkass Blue Blood General to a loyal friend and retainer.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Though he didn't always look like this.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Sinbad, obviously, and in his youth he held a strong fealty towards Serendine.
  • Was Once a Man: He at one point fused with his household vessel, transforming him into his current draconian-like state.
  • Young and in Charge: He was made captain of an entire troop of men in order to conquer a dungeon, and then subsequently promoted to lieutenant - all at just 14 years of age.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair: Back when he was still human, his hair was dark green.
