Role in the series
Aladdin and his friends stumbled upon the mysterious repeating battle between Zorasto and the Riders, and upon being told of their fate by Fasir, Aladdin became determined to save them from their never ending fate. However each of Aladdin's attempts only made things worse, until even he and most of his friends became trapped in the loop as well, with Abu and Carpet becoming Zorasto's sidekicks. In the end, Zorasto and the other marauders are defeated by the riders after Iago catches the crystal, and Aladdin, Abu, and Carpet turn back to normal. The Marauders then fled over the horizon as the Riders mocked their cowardice.
Zorasto is now more muscular and no longer hides his face or wears simple garbs, now proudly showing his face and wearing attire befitting someone of noble status, likely due to his significant rise in power and wealth. Zorasto and his men force Razoul and the other palace guards to go back to the palace and the marauders all have the Sultan's treasure. On their way to the desert to retrieve the treasure, Aladdin and his friends trick Zorasto into thinking they're on his side and they want to be just like him. Zorasto accepts Aladdin and he makes Razoul leave. Later, Zorasto and the others are at the top of the canyon and see the Riders of Ramond and Jasmine coming. He makes a magic hourglass appear and makes it lose sand slowly. Everyone gets off the cliff and rob and put the riders in chains. Aladdin realizes that the fact that they freeze time makes them strike so fast. He then sees that Zorasto also put Jasmine in chains. Zorasto throws his sword at Aladdin so he can execute Jasmine, but the street rat refuses and the marauder decides to do so himself until Genie stops him by tricking him into thinking that he's a desert insurance service while Aladdin sets Jasmine and the riders free. Zorasto gets angry at Aladdin and the street rat is about to fight him but a pile of coin fall on him. Zorasto gets back on the cliff and tries to make the riders surrender, otherwise he'll throw Jasmine. Aladdin goes behind the marauder to stop him, but he gets caught. Jasmine then makes Aladdin push her and Zorasto off the cliff. Zorasto falls over with Jasmine. He holds on to the ledge while Jasmine falls. Abu takes the hourglass and turns it around, which makes the princess stop falling. Zorasto and the other marauders surrender.
