|Haoma (Forgotten Sands)|
|Out of Universe Information|
The Haoma was a magic vine that destroyed the kingdom of Izdihar.
Haoma transformed the people of Izdihar into horrible monsters. However, with a magic sword, the vine was sealed and stopped from devouring the kingdom. The only survivor of the Haoma's attack was the genie Zahra, who convinced the Prince to follow her in the magic realm of Izdihar with a promise of a kingdom. But the true intention of the genie was to slay the Haoma with the help of the Prince, however, the Prince released the vine unknowingly by taking out the sword from a statue, that transformed into a creature called the Sorceress.
The sword also got broken, when a creature know as the Beast attacked the Prince. A piece of the weapon got stuck in the monster's abdomen, the Prince had to follow it. The Sorceress attacked the Prince many times and sent his minions to kill him. However, the Prince was able to reach the Beast and kill it to restore the sword and battle the Sorceress.
The creature could not be defeated without destroying the Haoma's heart, which was healing the creature. The Prince dived into the vines heart and destroyed it. As the Haoma died, the whole kingdom collapsed, sealing Izdihar in the sand, till someone discovers its secrets once again.
