A greedy prince gaining the throne would be good news for the Friends. Unfortunately, they quickly discovered Prince John's incompetence, and realized he was a poor choice for a client. So they turned to Prince John’s right hand man, Sir Hiss. They gave him his hypnotism powers in exchange for continuing to serve under the idiotic Prince John, where he helped send King Richard away. He was clever enough, but could never get John and the Sheriff to listen to him. After he was arrested, the Friends figured he’d given them enough despairing souls to warrant further help, bailed him out and sent him from the Animal Kingdom to Disney World Prime where he found out that he had a long-lost cousin named Kaa who also made a similar deal with the Friends. In an alternate world, the three were burned alive in the fire and had their souls collected.
