Hissah Zul is worried about a falling star, because the talking skull knows enough about astrology to explain that this star foretells the birth of a child who will end the reign of black magic. When the mother of the baby is traveling with a caravan across the desert, Hissah Zul gives order to kill everyone, but the baby survives, and Conan's companions have to take care of the newborn, a completely new experience for them. They name him Zzeben Bayu Otli Conan, because decisions are hard to make. Of course the evil king learns soon about the survival of the baby, and he sends many soldiers against Conan. They must cross the desert to escape, but their water has been poisoned, and they need a miracle to survive... Unusual episode, quite different from the others, most likely inspired by the Christmas stories. However, the sense of humor is not absent, for example in the scene when Conan enters a tavern and asks for milk.
