Macassar gives Sandokan a medallion carved with the image of a tiger’s head, the symbol of his father’s kingdom and his only inheritance. He then tells Sandokan to seek out James Brooke, the Governor of Labuan, who may be able to shed light on the events of that terrible night. Determined to uncover the secrets of his past, Sandokan joins the crew of a British steamer and begins his quest to learn the truth…
