Wake up, my beauties.

Rise and shine.

It's a brand-new day,

and the mortal world

is at peace.

But not for long.

Just look at them.

I pull one tiny thread,

and their whole world unravels

into chaos.

Glorious chaos.

And what could be more

perfect than this?

A noble prince,

a priceless treasure,

and a black-hearted thief.

Oh, this is going to be fun.

- Cetus?

You know what to do.

Let the games begin.

Gentlemen, this is

what we've been waiting for.

The world's most valuable object

is on its way to Syracuse.

It's a shame

it'll never get there.

After today, we retire to Fiji.

- Fiji!

- Fiji!


Aye, Captain.

- Spike!

Let's get rich!

Did you catch

that last move?

Pretty cool, huh?

I thought you

overworked it.

Just a bit.

Aw, y...

Overworked it?

Oh, and I was overworking it?



This just got interesting.

How long has it been?

About a lifetime ago.

You still fight

like an old lady.


- Oh. Ooh.



What are you doing here?

I'm working.


What happened to you?

Where have you been?

Hey, love to stop and catch up,

but I've got things to do,

places to go, stuff to steal.

Oh... yeah.


we need to talk.

Heard about it,

read about it,

never actually seen it.

The Book of Peace.

It's my job to bring it

safely to Syracuse.

Really? Now, see, now,

I- I just feel bad,

because you're going

to get fired.

You can't be serious.

You disappear for ten years,

show up, and rob me?

I wish it wasn't you.

I do.


- But...

- But it is me, Sinbad.

Proteus, we had a special

handshake, some code words,

a secret hideout.

It was fun, big fun,

but, uh, we were kids.

We were friends!

You're not going

to steal this.

Not from me.

And what would you

do with it anyway?

The Book of Peace protects

all of us in the Twelve Cities.


So, just imagine

how much all of us

will pay to get it back.

Let me say it again.

A long time ago,

you and I were friends.

If that ever meant anything

to you, prove it now.

You're right.

That was a long time ago.

Come on.

Don't get all heroic, Proteus.

If you want the Book,

you have to go through me.

What the...?

Dear gods.

Go, Spike.

- I gotcha! I gotcha!

Well, I see you're busy.

So, uh, stay in touch.

Wait! Wait!

You're just going

to run away?

Uh, yeah.



You! My...!

My ship!

Heads up!


stand by for sushi.

Give that guy a raise.

Come on!

Come on, Sinbad!

Let's go!


Stand your ground.

- W-What are you doing?


Hey, hey!

Lobster Boy, over here!


Fall back!

Grab hold!

Let's go!

Come on!

And the plan?

How about try not to get killed?

Hold on!

Here, you'll need this.

Where are you going?


Left, right, left, right,

left, right, left, right.




- Oh...

- You okay?


Thanks for sticking around.

Ah, just like old times.

Look out!

- Sinbad!

The day began with such promise.

And now look.

My sea monster is dead,

and I still don't have

the Book of Peace.

All because of you, Sinbad.


And you are?

Eris, the Goddess of Discord.

No doubt you've seen

my likeness

on the temple walls.

You know,

they don't do you justice.

Uh-huh. Now...

about my sea monster.

Right, right.

Listen, I'm sorry

about that.

I don't suppose a heartfelt

apology would do.

Heartfelt? From you?

Sinbad, you don't have a heart.

That's what I like about you.

So, I'm going

to let you live.

But there's

just one little thing

you have to do.

Get the Book of Peace

and bring it to me.

Right. Hmm.

Now, see, that's

a problem for me

because I had

my own plans for it.

Uh, ransom, get rich.

You know, "me" stuff.

You're not thinking

big enough, Sinbad.

Steal the Book for ransom,

and you'll be

rich enough

to lounge

on an island beach.

Steal the Book for me,

and you can buy the beach,

and the island and the world.


You let me live,

you make me rich,

I retire to paradise.

So far, I don't see a downside.

If you keep your word.

Sinbad, when a goddess

gives her word,

she's bound for all eternity.

All right, you're on.

I knew you'd

see it my way.

So, when you've

stolen the Book,

follow that star

beyond the horizon.

You'll find yourself

in Tartarus,

my Realm of Chaos.


I'll see you there.

It's a date then.

So, where were we?

Oh, yes.

You were holding your breath.

He's so cute.

And so gullible.

Cetus, well done.

- Sinbad, you're alive!

Glad you made it.

Pay up.

He lived.

What happened down there?

You wouldn't...

believe me if I told you.

Try me.

All right, here goes.

So I meet Eris,

the Goddess of Chaos.

She's got

a major crush on me,

and she invited me

back to her place.

Ha! That's a good one!

- Goddess of Chaos?

Oh, I'm writing that down.

So, that's it then?

No Book.

Now what do we do?

A little patience, Rat.

It's not like we don't know

where it's going.

Men, all sails to Syracuse!

Right away, sir!

For as long

as I can remember,

I've dreamed of this moment.

The sacred treasure

that's protected us

for a thousand years

is now in Syracuse.

- A toast!

- To Dymas!

Hear, hear!

To the Book of Peace!

And to you, King Dymas

and Prince Proteus.

- Make way!

You see?

This is what happens

when you use the front entrance.


What is he doing here?

At least he's not out

robbing someone.

That's because everyone

worth robbing is here.

I'll bet you ten crowns

you're about to put

those swords down.

I'll take that bet.


put away your swords.

I don't see you for ten years,

and now twice in one day...

You're smothering me.

I knew you'd want to thank me

for saving your life... again.

You probably just heard

we had free food and wine.

You hear that, guys?

Dinner and drinks

are on the prince.

Come on.

There's someone

I want you to meet.

Get to work.


Here she is.

I've told her

all about you.

Sinbad, I would

like to introduce you

to my fiancee,

the Lady Marina,

Ambassador from Thrace.

So, this is the infamous Sinbad.

I heard all about this morning.

First you tried to rob Proteus,

and then you save his life.

So, which are you...

a thief or a hero?

Sinbad wanted

to give me an opportunity

to thank...


Eight months on the sea

with nothing but eggs

and pickles...

you don't know what

that can do to a man.

Oh, it's almost too easy.

There's only

a handful of guards.

Forget it.

Let's get back to the ship.

Just like that?

But the Book is almost ours.



Who is she?

An old girlfriend?

I'm afraid it's

not that simple.

Let's go.

Jed, pack it up.

What? I-I... I just put the...

Oh, this is just too easy.

Look at it this way:

Now that Sinbad's gone,

your father can finally relax

and enjoy the evening.

Well, you're right about that.

He's trying not to show it,

but he's so proud

to have the Book in Syracuse.

He's been planning this day

his whole life.

And soon it will be
