Kouen....what of him...just guess what is this dark power that he implanted in himself was...the part of AL Tharmen that is apparently "apart of his body"....Sinbad is already falling into depravity...and Kouen's dark nature of not trusting anyone and depending solely on the power of magic to claim what he thinks is his naturally. Both Kings are trying to conquer..no matter if it's at a slow pace or tours for seizing lands in a mere three days... Even tricking his step brother in the process. Sure what Sinbad did was tactful but those types of methods..One would of never expected of Sinbad. Though I remember the chapter and what his General the assassin said to him... Something along the lines of what Sinbad wants he gets and he will go through whatever means to possess it... "what a frightening man.." paraphrased the first part but even his friend thinks of Sinbad differently..his schemes go unnoticed...Kouen on the other hand represents the face of an enigmatic darkness. He gives ultimatums and rules with an iron fist. Both men represent the same side of the coin...just their means of going about it are totally different. Obviously Alibaba with the help of his Magi are set out to change the way Goi Kings rule and reward their citizens. The relationships with other countries/nations also will be affected. Aladdin is trying to prevent the darkness that destroyed the previous world from tainting this one....Alibaba is trying to understand the world/people and shape his kingdom of Balbadd around the ideas that will help him become a better individual and King. Alibaba is working as a double agent right now....though soon enough he will have to decide and act on an idea that will remove the talks of war and keeping harm from approaching his allies. He must decide between two Kings and his own future title/involvement with Baldbadd.
This arc will be his biggest challenge.
