"Of Beasts and Baghdad"
While on a diplomatic mission, Valda and Malagigi find Arak being tortured in an Arab dungeon. After Malagigi protest's the torture and the fact that Arak was held without reason, he is released to his and Valda's custody. After Arak has adequately recovered, he relays the story of how he came to be imprisoned.
Note: This story takes place after Arak Annual #1.
