A simple mercenary with designs on power, the Friends approached him as a third attempt to remove Aladdin from the picture. He was granted enhanced strength, and his survival from the fall early in the movie was due to the Friends. When he was Taken For Granite by the Hand of Midas at the end of the movie, the Friends collected his soul and decided to cut their losses in Agrabah. Jafar was very pleased with this man who has a deep hatred for both Cassim but also his enemy Aladdin ( he was surprised that the street rat is the son of the king of thieves ) so he asked the Friends to allow this man to be a trainer and Sargent of the army of the Friends , and they accepted and resurrect him and they both bond a friendship of their hatred for Aladdin.
