Mukhtar is a recurring character in the Disney animated series, Aladdin. He is the last surviving member of a race of Mukhtars, otherwise known as Genie hunters and therefore was originally Genie's enemy until he later reformed and they became allies.
Role in the series
The Mukhtar appears in two episodes, "Genie Hunt" and "The Hunted". In the former of these, he is hired for one of Genie's former masters, Ajed Al-Gebraic, to capture Genie and put him into his service again. In the latter, he is hired by Mozenrath to capture Genie so he can entrap him in the Crystal of Ix and steal his powers, but ends up turning on Mozenrath and helping Aladdin rescue Genie after he saves him from a giant monstrous killer plant inside Mozenrath's palace. At the end of the episode, Genie and the Mukhtar part as friends.
