The marauders show up to attack the Riders of Ramond to rob their cargo. Their fight always ends up opening a chest and making a crystal fall, which makes them and the riders vanish and repeat the day over and over again. Abu later becomes a marauder and Carpet becomes their ride. They plan on defeating the riders once and for all. Later that day, Iago catches the crystal and Abu and Carpet are back to normal and the marauders are defeated by the riders.
