The story:
Hirk, a cruel and arrogant highland prince, is out hunting tigers in the jungle when his young son is attacked by a wild boar. Out exercising on his own, Devil saves the day, but is rewarded with being captured by the prince and brought to the latter's walled city.

As Devil faces a mighty fighting ordeal in the prince's bear pit, the Phantom starts following Devil's trail to the prince's city and beyond...
