The man presents himself as Judal, an oracle serving the Ko Empire who claims to have business with Abhmad. Ignoring Alibaba's protests, Abhmad reveals to Sinbad that by recommendation of his financial advisor Markkio, he relenquished all of Balbadd'... (more)s trading rights to the Ko Empire, thus he is not in position to resume trading with Sindria. Back at the Fog Troupe's base, Sinbad announces to the people of the slums that negociations with Abhmad failed, but for some reason, Cassim and his companions are nowhere to be found. Judal appears before Sinbad and notices that the Rukh behaves strangely around Aladdin. Sinbad then reveals that it is beacuse Aladdin is a Magi just like him. Without any warning, Judal starts attacking Aladdin until Ugo appears to stop him. Judal strikes Aladdin with his ice spears and Ugo shields him with his own body. Aladdin tries to have the wounded Ugo return to the flute, but he refuses. Judal then impales Ugo with a huge ice spear but the Djinn makes use of his last strength to crush him with his hands.
