Magnus imagined that Aladdin would someday try to steal back the lamp. Sure enough, Aladdin appeared one day and angrily declared, "I'm here to take back my friend!" Magnus laughed mockingly in return. "Oh, that? It's worthless! Just something that woman Scheherazade gave me." Unwilling to lose to Aladdin, he summoned all of his strength and magic power in preparation for battle.

Magnus is a masculine name used chiefly in English, German, and Scandinavian, and its origin is Latin. It is literally from the word magnus with the meaning "great". It became popular in Scandinavia after the time of the 11th-century Norwegian king Magnus I, who was said to have been named after Charlemagne ("Charles the Great" in Fench), or Carolus Magnus in Latin. The name was borne by six subsequent kings of Norway as well as three kings of Sweden. It was imported to Scotland and Ireland during the Middle Ages.
