The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo

While in Temple Village, within the Himalayas, Scooby-Doo and Shaggy Rogers were tricked into opening the Chest of Demons by Bogel and Weerd, releasing Maldor and the other ghosts trapped across the globe.[1]

Maldor was the first of the thirteen ghosts to be encountered by the gang and was attempting to find a powerful magic wand that would grant him extreme power. He had captured the owner of the wand and had trapped a princess in an enchanted sleep. As the gang arrived to seize him, he performed a series of spells to create traps and then placed Daphne Blake in an enchanted sleep. He discovers that Scooby has found the Wonder Wand, and tries to take it, but Scooby flees with the wand. He engages Scooby in a battle of magic, with the latter using the wand to protect himself. He was eventually caught after transforming himself into a frog to devour Scooby after he turned himself into a fly, leading to the group locking him in the chest once again.[2]
