At one point, when the Ninth Menegril had gone missing, it appeared that the Menegril's rivals would sack the palace. To forestall disaster, Bambang conspired for Arnold Littleworth to impersonate the Menegril. Arnold reluctantly complied, but succeeded in restoring the status quo after only a few weeks. After the Menegril's restoration, Bambang fled the palace with several items of magical power.
Bambang took a lot of good stuff, and presumably should be easy to defeat.
