Synopsis
Korak and Billali kill lions together and present their pelts to Queen Tandika, as does Mandyama. The queen grants them their choice of brides, which Korak declines until Mandyama chooses a white captive. They duel, Korak wins, and the queen weds Korak to Sue Randall. He assures her, though, that the marriage has no validity and that he had only gone through the ceremony so as to help her escape.
