|~ The Shaman|
The Shaman is the main antagonist from the Aladdin TV series episode "Beast or Famine". He is a power-hungry wizard and the former ruler of rat-like creatures.
He was voiced by Malcolm McDowell, who also played Alex in A Clockwork Orange, Caligula in Caligula, Tolian Soran in Star Trek: Generations, Captain Von Berkow in The Passage, Geoffrey Tolwyn in the Wing Commander video game series, Lord Maliss in Happily Ever After, Sinclair in Home Alone: The Holiday Heist, Daniel Linderman in Heroes, Colonel F. E. Cochrane in Blue Thunder, Kesslee in Tank Girl, Tower in Phineas and Ferb, Andrej Evilenko in Evilenko, Arkady Duvall in Batman: The Animated Series, Arnold Gundars in I Spy, and Marcus Kane in Doomsday.
Despite being the leader of the rat people, the Shaman is very evil, arrogant, manipulative and treacherous sorcerer who does not even care about them. He is often shown to be abusive and threatening towards them. He only cares about himself and gaining power, even at the expense of other people's lives. One of his most despicable plans is when he attempted to absorb all of Genie's powers.
The Shaman is the leader of the rat people. He gives them an authoritative instruction to capture Genie, so that he can have his powers. When he sees Aladdin, Abu and Merc approaching his cave with his ship, he orders the rat people to stop them. However, it is too late that the ship violently collides through the wall. He then begins to fight the three. After Genie tells the rat people that the Shaman is not their true leader, they engage the Shaman in a fight, take his staff, and destroy it. The shadow creature was created by the Shaman to devour Aladdin and Abu, but the shadow creature eats him quickly instead and it disappears. After that, the Shaman now ceases to have Genie's powers.
He is a tall, slender tan-skinned man with long blonde hair and teal eyes. He wears a long, very regal-looking cerulean robe with a maroon sash tied around his waist. He also appears to wear gold earrings. He also wears a maroon cape.
