This paper toy is the Jafar, based on the The Labyrinth of Magic of Magi anime series, the papercraft was created by niibi. Jafar is the Adviser to Sinbad, King of Sindria, and one of the Eight Generals of Sindria.
Jafar is a serious person, who gets angry easily. He is most often the voice of reason when Sinbad is doing something outrageous. He tends to scold Sinbad a lot, despite Sinbad being his King, older, and stronger than him.
When provoked or angered, Jafar shows a whole different side to himself. He was easily willing to kill Kassim, when the latter opposed Sinbad. Another time this happened was when Judal called Jafar a “small fry” and told him to step aside, because he had some business with Sinbad. Enraged, Jafar was going to use his Household Vessel, Balalark Sei with his full strength, but was stopped by Sinbad before he could do so.
Jafar was an assassin who once tried to kill Sinbad, but failed and, for reasons that are yet unknown, decided to serve him as a vassal. Little is known about Jafar’s history, but it is evident that, from a young age, he was under intensely abusive treatment, which would have most likely warped his ethical reasoning and his physical body. Before he was commissioned to kill Sinbad, Jafar’s body was seen to be severely scarred on his legs, which were marked with single, long, almost stitch-like scars.
Since his assassin days, Jafar has apparently become quite tame and serious. Sinbad remarked that Jafar’s eyes were always rogue when they’d first met. Over the course of their acquaintance, Jafar has apparently grown very close to his King, to the point where he is the only character to have nicknamed Sinbad, calling him always by “Sin.” There appears to be a respect between Sinbad and Jafar, as Jafar was entrusted with the care of the entire Kingdom of Sindria while Sinbad was away.
Jafar is an average sized man with pale skin and short white hair. He wears a long drabe that covers his entire body, and an green Arabian keffiyeh on his head. He has short white hair and freckles around his nose. He always carries around his red wires, which is his Household Vessel, Balalark Sei. Jafar’s legs are severely scarred, marked with single, long, almost stitch-like scars. When enraged, his eyes change into eyes that resemble those of a snake.
