Role in the series
Zarasto is the leader of the marauders. He and the other marauders show up in the desert to attack the Riders of Ramond so they can steal their cargo. The fight makes a chest on an elephant's back open, and a crystal falls out of the chest and breaks, making Zarasto, the other marauders, and the riders vanish and repeat the day over and over again. Zarasto later has Abu and Carpet as his sidekicks. At the end of the episode, Zarasto and the other marauders are defeated by the riders after Iago catches the crystal, and Abu and Carpet turn back to normal.
