|~ Mozernrath about his evil kingdom known as the Land of the Black Sand.|
The Land of the Black Sand is an evil kingdom with deserts comprised entirely of the Black Sand and a location in the Aladdin TV Series. It is home of the evil socerer Mozenrath and his pet floating eel Xerxes, both residing in the land's main palace called "The Citadel" at the heart of the kingdom's city.
The Land of the Black Sand, is a desert kingdom where, as the name implies, the sand is black, and the sun is usually blocked by clouds, and the only residents are Mozenrath himself, his flying eel sidekick Xerxes, and an army of zombies called Mamluks, undead soldiers who serve him. He is quite open and accepting about his own cruelty and he prides himself on his ruthlessness. He took control of the Land of the Black Sand from its former ruler, the sorcerer Destane. According to Iago, Destane was a real hard case and even Jafar steered well clear of him. Mozenrath explained that Destane was like a father to him until he "stole his power and his humanity," turning him into one of his undead soldiers. This implies that Destane was his master until Mozenrath betrayed him, killed him, and turned his body into a zombie. However, the actual story is a mystery. Nobody knows exactly what happened, just that Destane is a zombie now, Mozenrath has his magic, and he's ruling in his place. His floating Eel familiar Xerxes and his undead Mamluk army are loyal to him and will follow any of his orders.
