walking through the Evergreen Forest, Prince Adam and Cringer come across
a group of Kobolds taking a Native American woman to the City of Targa.
Adam and Cringer quickly change and stop the kidnappers. Afterward, the
woman, Princess Rana of Targa, thanks them, as she says that otherwise she
would have become a slave. He-Man is shocked to know that slavery exists
on Eternia, and finds out that the leader of the Kobolds, Lodar, has enslaved
her entire people. He-Man decides to go to Targa with Rana to stop Lodar,
but must first cross a river flooded due to rain. In the process, a boulder
hits He-Man, knocking him out. Rana and Battle Cat race to help him, but
too late -- the Kobolds have captured him. The purple warriors see the two
watching, and capture them as well!
Later, He-Man awakens in a dungeon next to a member of Rana's people named
Garn, unable to remember his name. Suddenly, the Kobolds burst in and demand
that the two come with them. They bring them to a throne in front of Lodar,
and demand that they bow. But even without his memory, He-Man refuses to
bow to him. Lodar, apparently a man in a mask, demands that Garn and the
stranger fight as gladiators in the Arena of Death, promising that the victor
shall go free. During the combat, Garn sees the stranger's death as his
passport to freedom, and both battle fiercely. Eventually, Garn clubs He-Man
in the head, which revives his memory. He-Man ends the fight decisively,
but will not kill Garn. Instead, he climbs into the stands after Lodar!
Though Lodar puts up a good fight, He-Man eventually prevails.
Afterward, Lodar and the Kobolds are banished underground, where Lodar no
longer will be able to use magic without the sun and the moon. He-Man, triumphant,
heads off to new adventure.
