The story:

When the daughter of the Wogu king goes down with a mysterious illness, the father does not hesitate to seek advice from the tribe's all-powerful four-armed Scarlet Sorceress. Curiously, this mysterious entity demands a child of the same age but with different characteristics to be able to cure the king's daughter. Only one child in the vicinity fits this description: Princess Valerie, whom the Phantom saved from certain death in a recent adventure (see D027 Princess Valerie).

After hearing of the princess' abduction, the Phantom sets off to save her life and to get to the bottom of the mighty sorceress' appearances and her mystifying edict...
