Satan is angry at Ibis foiling his evil and releases the Spanish Torturer Tomás de Torquemada to kill Ibis, threatening him with horrible punishment of he fails. He holds a costume party in his old castle, and attends, dressed as himself. Ibis and Taia come dressed as pirates. After a guest nearly falls into a lion pit but is saved by Ibis, suspicions are aroused. However Taia is captured by a chandelier dropping from the ceiling and becoming a cage, lifting her up. Ibis can't find her so tells the stones to tell him what happened to her, and finds out that the host is the real Torquemada. He uses the Ibistick to point the way to Taia. He finds her bound and gagged in an iron maiden, with Torquemada threatening to close it if Ibis uses the Ibistick. He asks for the Ibistick, planning to destroy Ibis when he gets it. Ibis throws the Ibistick at him, then turns it into a sword and fights him. However Torquemada gets the sword and tries to destroy Ibis and all traces of his existence, but is instead destroyed by the Ibistick. Taia has been freed while this is happening. Satan can't even find Tomas to punish him.
