Cassim

Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama (Japanese), Yuko Sanpei (child, Japanese), Sean Chiplock (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kashim_8332.jpg

Alibaba's old friend who was raised alongside him by Alibaba's mother. After years of living in the slums and the death of his sister, he becomes fed up with the government and persuades Alibaba to team up with him against the king when the two reunite during the six month time skip.


  • Abusive Parents: He and his sister lived with their alcoholic father who beats them, before Alibaba's mother took them in.
  • Dreadlock Warrior: Fits the personality and character type, especially the part about rebelling against authority.
  • Dying as Yourself: He and Alibaba managed to make peace between each other and that turned his Rukh white again but died as a side effect of being a Dark Djinn.
  • Fond Memories That Could Have Been: As his Rukh returns to normal since he realized the error of his ways, he starts to imagine how his and Alibaba's lives could have been if they had been able to talk to each other and mend their relationship sooner.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He admits that Alibaba is a great person, but because of it, he always feels suffocated around him.
  • Smoking Is Cool: He likes to smoke, and may have been doing it since he was more or less 14.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Cassim/Kashim/Kasmir.
  • Start of Darkness: He grew up with an abusive father, his kind adoptive mother who saved him from said father ended up dying so he later formed a gang with other troubled kids and started to steal... but the last straw was the horrible death of his sister Mariam. Not to mention how he was ultimately forced to kill his drunk father who wanted to sell Mariam.
  • These Hands Have Killed: After he realized that he had just killed his father.
  • Troubled Abuser: Much of his treatment of Alibaba is downright emotional abuse and manipulation. As for the "Troubled" aspect, just look at the other tropes listed here.

    Hassan and Zaynab 

Hassan and Zaynab

Hassan voiced by: Teruyuki Tanzawa (Japanese), Saeko Akiho (young, Japanese), Patrick Seitz (English)

Zaynab voiced by: Akeno Watanabe (Japanese), Karen Strassman (English)

A couple who are part of the Fog Troupe. They have been part of Cassim's gang since childhood, and so they have also known Alibaba since then.


Tropes that apply to both:
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: They love each other, but fight tons.
    Cassim: "They've broken up and gotten back together a lot."
    Alibaba: "Huh, is that so? How many times?"

  • Childhood Friends: With Cassim and Alibaba, they have known them since childhood.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: They met as children and at some point, they became a couple.
  • Former Teen Rebel: Both of them, but played differently. While Zaynab is happy with the life the Kou Empire has given them, Hassan is the only one that sees how that they're losing their identities and slavery is still in Balbadd, but can't do anything about it now that he has a family to take care of.
  • Happily Married: They got married sometime after Balbadd was conquered and had a son together. Zaynab is also pregnant again.

    Anise 

Anise

Voiced by: Eimi Okada (Japanese)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anise_3223.png

Alibaba's mother, she is described as a "kind and cheerful person" by him. She adopted Mariam and Cassim after their father disappeared. Before becoming a prostitute, she worked as a maid at Balbadd's palace. There she met and fell in love with the king, Rashid, with whom she had Alibaba.


  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: She was a good and loving mother to Alibaba and she saved his friends from being beaten by their drunken father, then adopted them when he either died or abandoned them.
  • Interclass Romance: With Rashid, she was a commoner while he was a king.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name means favor, grace in Hebrew.
  • The Mistress: To Rashid, they had an affair which lasted long enough for her to get pregnant.
  • The One That Got Away: To Rashid Saluja. They fell in love when Anise was working in the palace, but apparently, she got fired and he never saw her again. But on his deathbed, he confessed to their son Alibaba that he always loved her.
  • Parental Substitute: To Mariam and Cassim.

    Mariam 

Mariam

Voiced by: Aki Nakajima (Japanese)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mariam_3301.png

    Rashid Saluja 

Rashid Saluja

Voiced by: Hiroshi Tsuchida (Japanese)

The 22nd King of Balbadd, the late father of Ahbmad and Sahbmad. He was a mentor to Sinbad, teaching him how to be a good merchant, and later a king. He is also Alibaba's father.


    Ahbmad Saluja 

Ahbmad Saluja

Voiced by: Kouki Miyata (Japanese), Sam Riegel (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ahbmad_4792.jpg

The current King of Balbadd. He is eventually forced to step down from the throne, and is now exiled to an island in the southern sea.


  • Arranged Marriage: To finally seal the alliance with the Kou Empire he'll marry one of the princesses.
  • Asshole Victim: He is depicted as an absolutely unsympathetic dick until he is ultimately overthrown.
  • The Atoner: According to Sahbmad, he's been doing quite of a bit of self-reflection after being deposed. Whether it's a true Heel–Face Turn remains to be seen.
  • Big Brother Bully: To his younger brother Sahbmad. He keeps under control and belittles poor Sahbmad via his lack of self-confidence and shyness.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Alibaba's Abel. Ahbmad was not particularly favored by his father, who even asked Alibaba to rule when he invited him over to his deathbed. Ahbmad holds quite a bit of hatred for Alibaba and ordered his death without much remorse when Alibaba trespassed in the palace a second time.
  • Dumbass No More: Learning an enigmatic language, Torran, during his stay in the nation for research, and using it to help Aladdin and Hakuryuu from being mobbed by children who tried to con them. He still says that he did it strictly to get along with locals, though.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Easily fell prey to Banker's manipulations and allowed the Kou Empire to control the economy.
  • I Am Big Boned: Made fun of by Sinbad when Ahbmad teases him about gaining weight since they last met.
  • It's All About Me: Big time. He was okay with betraying all of his citizens for more money because, according to him, as long as he was okay, Balbadd was okay.
  • Kick the Dog: He makes fun of Sahbmad's Shrinking Violet status while trying to get him to call off the rebellion by showing him the pressures of being a ruler.

    Sahbmad Saluja 

Sahbmad Saluja

Voiced by: Hirofumi Nojima (Japanese), Tony Oliver (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sahbmad_9241.jpg

The very shy Deputy King of Balbadd. Once his brother is forced to abdicate, he rejects getting the throne as he wishes and considers Alibaba to be more fit to be the next King. He joins his brother in his exile and they both study together about the Torran language.


  • Alliterative Name: Sahbmad Saluja.
  • Authority in Name Only: Though his title is Deputy King, he doesn't wield that much power himself, though that may just because of his shy nature and guilt complex.
  • Big Brother Worship: Subverted in that he doesn't approve any of his older brother's actions. In fact he looks up to his younger brother, thinking that Alibaba is more brave and smarter than him, believing that he is the only one who can save Balbadd.
  • The Exile: He joins his brother in his exile.
  • Guilt Complex: Sahbmad constantly berates himself for being too weak to stand up to Ahbmad.
  • The Mole: Was secretly helping the Fog Troupe against Ahbmad, because his younger brother was part of it.
  • Must Make Amends: He has always held the position of Deputy King behind Ahbmad, but has never been strong enough to directly oppose him for the sake of Balbadd. Now that Alibaba has come back, Sahbmad desperately wants to help Alibaba save the country.
  • Shrinking Violet: A surprisingly serious example of this, to the point where he feels he could never be king because of it.
  • The So-Called Coward: Eventually stands up to Ahbmad, and helps the resistance in overthrowing him.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He bears some resemblance to his father Rashid, they both have wavy hair and a similar height.

    Barkak

Voiced by: Yasunori Matsumoto (Japanese)

Aktia Kingdom

The Aktia Kingdom is a small coastal country. Its port is an important point of contact between the Eastern and Western Continents.

    Aum Madaura 

Aum Madaura

Voiced by:: Aya Hisakawa (Japanese), Dorah Fine (English)

The leader of the pirates who robbed ships and their valued contents near the Aktia Kingdom's port. The pirates were mostly made up of young children she kidnapped and brainwashed with her Magic Tool, "Holy Mother Halo Fan".


  • Bad Boss: Sinbad no Bouken shows her tossing a sick child slave with the intent of having her killed once Sinbad is under her control.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Harshly Averted. She gets torn by a mob of the kidnapped children's parents and finally decapitated by Hakuryuu.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Under her motherly smile and voice, she doesn't care at all for the children she kidnapped and brainwashed. She's been doing this as far back as Sinbad no Bouken.
  • Black Eyes of Crazy
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Revealed in the Sinbad no Bouken to have been the head of the Mariadel Company.
  • Child Soldier: Leads a bunch of them.
  • Compelling Voice: Her tool makes everyone see her words as those of their mother.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Her tool takes one's love for their mother and transfers it to her; which is why she uses children, but in the case of Aladdin, who never knew his mother, and Alibaba, who has been without one for a long time, it doesn't work very well. In the case of Hakuryuu, it transferred his hate... Leading to her capture and death.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Appears sweet, motherly, kind, and reasonable when she's actually cruel, manipulative, selfish, and egotistical.
  • Foreshadowing: Hakuryuu decapitating her serves to foreshadow his eventual killing of his own mother, in the very same way.
  • Karmic Death: Manipulates the feelings for motherhood in children to the point that they would die for her and gets killed by a boy who she attempted to manipulate the motherly feelings of.
  • Killed Off for Real: And rather brutally, by none other than Hakuryuu.
  • Meaningful Name: "The Great Holy Mother."
  • Mercy Kill: Hakuryuu says this is why he killed her, as she was going to be executed anyway and the crowd was trying to lynch her on the dock. But Alibaba doesn't buy it, as Hakuryuu showing off her head to her "children" was downright despicable.
  • More Than Mind Control: Convinces children to follow her based on their innate desire for a "mother's love". Aladdin is able to resist this because he never knew his mother and never expected love from a mother. Alibaba is affected to some degree, but not completely because he still has his reasons abound. Morgiana is affected quite badly, probably because she's longing for a mother. Hakuryuu... well, just say that he has mother issues and leave it at that.
    • Sinbad no Bouken shows she was doing this even as a merchant. She would have her child slaves tortured and then only showing her kind side to them after they've been broken down enough that they would do anything for her. After that, she only shows them a sweet side depending on how useful she considers them to be.
  • My Beloved Smother: Discussed. Aladdin realized that a person who controls your life forever can't be good at all, even if she calls herself "your mother" and one must cut the motherly bonds soon or later and be independent.
  • Off with Her Head!: Hakuryuu decapitates her.

    Olba 

Olba

Voiced by: Kei Shindou (Japanese), Danielle McRae (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/avy_olba_3181.jpg

The leader of Aum Madaura's "pirate children", he is devoted to their mother and considered to be the "Big Brother". After his defeat and Aum Madaura's death, Alibaba sends him and his siblings to Sindria, hoping that they could find a better life for them. When we see him again after the Time Skip, Olba has become more open, cheerful and adores Alibaba for giving him a second chance.


  • I Got Bigger: Olba grew to even overpass Alibaba's height... In just one year and a few months.
  • I Owe You My Life:
    • He says that Madaura saved him and the rest of the pirates from the poverty they lived in and that they owe her their lives.
    • And he currently feels greatly grateful to Alibaba for giving him and the rest of the pirates a second chance at life in Sindria.
  • The Leader: Of Aum Madaura's crew, he is the "Big Brother" that everyone looks up to.
  • Making a Splash: His magic tool gives him this ability.
  • Likes Older Women: Toto is six years older than him.
  • Love Informant: He ends up being the one who tells Alibaba that Morgiana has feelings for him, to Alibaba's utter shock.
  • Official Couple: With Toto.
  • Undying Loyalty:
    • Towards Aum Madaura, whom he sees as his mother.
    • Currently he and the other pirates feel this for Alibaba, which made it possible for him to become a member of his Household.

Bhrol

  • Big Brother Instinct: To the younger pirate children.

  • Braids of Action: Unlike the rest he already braided his hair before the Time Skip, though he also adds the same type of small braids the rest now wear.
  • Brainwashed: He is under the spell of Aum Madaura's "Holy Mother Halo Fan", so he sees her as his mother.
  • Blood Brothers: The Pirate Children care a lot for each other and they consider themselves to be siblings.
  • Undying Loyalty:
    • Towards Aum Madaura, whom he sees as his mother.

    Leila and Sahsa 

Leila and Sahsa

Leila voiced by: Haruna Ikezawa (Japanese), Julie Ann Taylor (English)

Sahsa is voiced by: Satomi Sato (Japanese), Karen Strassman (English)

Two merchant girls Aladdin meets at the start of his journey.
Tropes that apply to both:
  • Remember the New Guy?: The anime does this to them. They were featured with Aladdin in the first chapter of the manga, but that entire chapter was left out of the anime. When Aladdin later encounters them in the anime with Morgiana, he already knows them.
    • Subverted, as the anime does have a hint of their association with him.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Sahsa's kindness is what made Leila give up being a thief. In return, Leila is extremely protective of her, and does not like Aladdin always giving Sahsa rather leacherous hugs.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sahsa is usually translated as "Salsa," while Leila sometimes gets translated as both "Lyra" and "Lila."

Tropes that apply to Leila:

  • Be All My Sins Remembered: When it's revealed that Leila used to be a thief, the caravan loses trust in her, even when she warns them about an actual ambush.
  • Becoming the Mask: Leila was originally part of a band of thieves and was sent to lure out Sahsa's caravan, but ended up becoming actual friends with her.
  • The Power of Friendship: After meeting Sahsa, Leila became a firm believer of it.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: She, as a thief, used to pull this on traveling caravans through the desert, so they would take her in. She eventually stops doing this when she meets Sahsa's caravan.

Tropes that apply to Sahsa:

    Budel 

Budel

Voiced by: Kousuke Okano (Japanese), Dan Woren (English)

A wealthy merchant who works under Jamil.


  • Entitled Bastard: Believes his wares are more important than the lives of peasants.
  • Jerkass: Tries to have Alibaba enslaved when he chooses to save a little girl over protecting Budel's wares.
  • Professional Butt-Kisser: He is last seen happily groveling to the newly-wealthy Alibaba after Jamil's death.
  • Unexpected Character: Well, he's the last person that fans actually expected to return for the final arc.

    Jamil 

Jamil

Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe (Japanese), Junko Minagawa (child, Japanese), Liam O'Brien (English), Amanda Céline Miller (child)

Chief of the Oasis Capital Qishan.
  • Ax-Crazy: He's a sadistic sociopath who casually beats the hell out of his slaves with a smile on his face.
  • Bad Boss: Jamil seems friendly enough at first, but this only makes him more of a psychopath, in that he keeps up the friendliness whilst abusing his slaves.
  • Break the Haughty: Jamil gets a massive one courtesy of him underestimating Alibaba and Aladdin.
  • Dirty Coward: When the dangers of the dungeon begin to show, he loses his amicable and threatening demeanor, becoming terrified and panicky.
  • Enfant Terrible: Morgiana's flashbacks show him abusing her even when they were both children.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Jamil is introduced as talking rather amicably with his slave, Morgiana, who returned to him even after being freed. His next scene is of him casually beating up his slaves without changing his happy expression and ranting about how he deserves to be King. This dichotomy becomes the focus of his arc.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He seemed to be a Reasonable Authority Figure, then we learn immediately of his sociopathic and sadistic nature.
  • Freudian Excuse: His parents died when he was a child, and he was taken in by a member of Al-Thamen, who deliberately raised him to be the cruel, selfish, abusive slave owner he is today. It does not excuse his actions by any means, but it does explain why he is the way he is.
  • Greed: Pretty much Jamil's character, as even as the chief of a city, he's not satisfied with what he has now.
  • Hate Sink: Looking at his horrible personality, the way he treats his slaves and just about everyone else around him, it's clear he's not to be liked in the slighted.
  • Humiliation Conga: Basically everything that Jamil experiences in Amon's dungeon.
  • Jerkass: He's selfish, cruel, and regularly abuses his slaves. Really, there's nothing redeeming or likable about him.
  • Kick the Dog: Openly mocks Morgiana on how she will never be able to truly break free from being a slave, after all of the years of abuse he's given her.
  • Killed Off for Real: In Amon's dungeon, he's crushed to death along with Goltas as the dungeon collapses.
  • Lack of Empathy: His treatment of Morgiana aside, when Alibaba takes Goltas hostage, his response is to stab the latter for being useless.
  • Psychopathic Man Child: He treats his slaves like toys he can own and play with, and throws tantrums when things don't go his way.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Despite his position as the chief, Aladdin points out he completely lacks the qualifications of being a king.
  • The Sociopath: He was to be this way by Al-Thamen.
  • Starter Villain: Despite seeming to be a major threat, he was merely a normal man without even knowledge of Rukh, proper swordplay, or even languages.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one after Morgiana is defeated, and he's told by Aladdin that he isn't worthy of being considered a king candidate.

    Goltas 

Goltas

Voiced by: Kiyoshi Katsunuma (Japanese), Keith Silverstein (English)

A slave serving under Jamil. Originally a member of the Kouga Clan.


  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Morgiana. He breaks her chains and it is at his insistence that she leaves the dungeon.
  • The Brute: Jamie's primary use for him is as an enforcer and killer.
  • The Faceless: His face is kept hidden under an iron mask such that we never see more than his eyes.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Forces Jamil to stay behind with him while the dungeon collapses so that Morgiana can escape with Aladdin and Alibaba.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Thanks to the type of sword he used, it's revealed that he came from the Kouga Clan.
  • Made a Slave: It's revealed he was originally a part of the Kouga clan before being enslaved.
  • Suddenly Voiced: Despite Jamie's claims to the contrary, Goltas' final moments are spent speaking to Morgiana, albeit in a stilted manner.
  • Taking You with Me: He carries Jamil away while Amon's dungeon collapses around them.
  • These Hands Have Killed: He thinks that because he has killed, he has no right to try to go back to his clan.
  • The Voiceless: Jamil claims that he was injured in such a way that he can not speak.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He's only present during the Amon's Dungeon arc, despite is an ultimately significant role in it and Morgianna's development.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Jamil nearly does this to Goltas, due to Alibaba proving to be a more interesting pawn.

    Chagan Shaman 

Chagan Shaman

Voidec by: Toshiko Sawada (Japanese), Barbara Goodson (English)

The Elder of the Kouga Clan, an old woman with the power to see the mysterious force known as "Rukh", and tells Aladdin that he is a Magi.

    Fatima 

Fatima

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (Japanese), Patrick Seitz (English)

A slave trader who partners up with a band of thieves.


  • Bishōnen
  • Dirty Coward: He acts confident and like a big shot as long as his slaves are chained up and he has hoards of bloodthirsty hyenas and tigers at his disposal. As soon as Morgiana breaks free and beats up said hyenas and tigers, he completely loses his cool and falls on his ass the minute she confronts him.
  • Freudian Excuse: Was broken down and made loyal to Madaura, only to be tossed aside the moment she got a better slave to act as overseeing her slave trade.
  • Gender-Blender Name
  • Guyliner: Wears lipstick as well as eyeliner.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: He was once a slave himself.
  • Jerkass: How else can you describe a guy who decides that the best way to deal with a sick little girl is to feed her to a pack of wild animals?
  • Kick the Dog: As if trying to feed a little girl who had developed a fever to a pack of hyenas instead of giving her medical treatment wasn't enough of a dick move, he decides to twist the knife even further by making Morgiana watch as he does so. After Morgiana had begged him to help said little girl, no less!
  • Make-Up Is Evil
  • More Than Mind Control: Like the other child slaves, he was broken down and made into an obedient servant of Madaura before Sinbad no Bouken.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: When Morgiana begs him to help an Ill Girl he captured for use as a slave, he decides instead that feeding said Ill Girl to hyenas is a far better solution.
  • Parrot Pet Position: Has a pet hawk with poisoned claws that rides on his shoulder.
  • Sex Slave: Given to a male client for a night by Madaura after she saw him trying to frame Sinbad. He is eventually convinced to willingly be his slave by Madaura permanently the next day.

    Yunan 

Yunan

Voiced by: Akira Ishida (Japanese), Max Mittelman (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yunan_5286.png

One of the four current Magi, along with Scheherazade, Judar, and Aladdin. A wanderer who does as he pleases, currently living in the Great Rift on the way to the Dark Continent. Raised the first dungeon, Baal, 14 years before the start of the series, though he has never chosen a King Candidate.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: The Adventure of Sinbad anime makes his silvery hair a much darker blond.
  • Born-Again Immortality: Yunan has already lived nine lives, in only his current body. Every time he dies, his Rukh is taken to the Sacred Palace and he revives in a body like Scheherazade did with Titus.
  • Braids of Action: Like the other Magi.
  • The Chooser of The One: He was the one who encouraged Sinbad to go into Baal.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's very laid-back, teases Sinbad about his age For the Lulz and is a bit of a Manchild, but he's a very powerful Magi and knowledgeable magician, and his Bolg alone can keep Sinbad away when he wants a private talk with Aladdin. When he and Arba clash, she's surprised that someone who hasn't fought for so long could do that well against her. Unfortunately, Arba is even stronger and able to heal from everything he throws at her.
  • Day Hurts Dark-Adjusted Eyes: He prefers dark places. In Adventure of Sinbad, Sinbad first met him after finding him inside a barrel; he lives in the Great Rift between the Dark Continent and he comments that Sindria's sunlight is too strong for him.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady
  • Flying Broomstick: He uses his Magic Staff as one.
  • The Force Is Strong with This One: When Sinbad is born, Yunan feels his presence changing the world and wonders what he will become.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Always has numerous birds flying around him.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He admits to Aladdin that, while he's at his side, he himself is not entirely a good person.
  • Herald: Along with actually raising the first dungeon, Yunan was the one who showed Sinbad the path he could take to change the world.
  • Hermit Guru
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Sinbad and Morgiana. Though his relationship with the former seems to be currently strained.
  • Kid with the Leash: He seems to be the only one that can keep Sinbad in line and talk back to him.
  • Little Stowaway: While not exactly "little" (though depending on how you see him); Yunan first encountered Sinbad when hiding inside a barrel within a Fruit Cart. It seems to be a Running Gag with individual Magi, considering how Aladdin met Alibaba in a near-identical way.
  • Manchild: He seems to be a little childish and cries very easily. He also can get bullied by children.
  • The Mentor: He trains Morgiana in how to best use her low amount of Magoi so that she can use her household vessel without fear of death.
  • Mundane Utility: He uses magic to 'play' with the atoms in order to create...a wooden house with everything included and food. The dream of every traveler.
  • Mysterious Backer: He's also supported by Ugo (and by extension, Solomon), and seems to know much more than Aladdin about what's going on in this world, but he doesn't help much aside from showing the path of what to do to others.
  • Mystical White Hair: His hair is platinum blonde, almost white, befitting his status as a powerful Magi.
  • Occult Blue Eyes
  • Oh, Crap!: When he sees Arba effortlessly heal from being blown to bits after his last desperate attack his facial expression makes it clear that he knows he's screwed.
  • Older Than He Looks: Along with Scheherazade.
  • Perpetual Smiler: A laid-back, friendly and calming smile. That actually hides a lot of secrets.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Like the rest of the Magi.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat
  • Shrouded in Myth
  • Super Senses: To put an example, he knows that Sinbad is spying on him with a bird-looking magical tool and can hear his voice from the throne hall to the royal library.
  • Tears of Fear: When scared, he cries.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: It's revealed that, despite showing Sinbad the path to change the world and giving him the motivation to enter and conquer Baal, Yunan and Sinbad don't trust each other.
  • Threshold Guardian: To Morgiana. She meets him on her way to the Dark Continent and he tells her that she can't go home again if she continues on, because war is coming.
  • Walking the Earth: Wanders from place to place making dungeons randomly appear.
