Dinosaur King
Dinosaur King

Princess Zahrah (Safara サファラ in Japanese) is an Persian princess that the D-Team encountered in the Ancient Persia Arc of Mesozoic Meltdown (ep. 67-70). She is voiced by Caroline Lawson (alias) in the English dub.

Character Design[]

Zahrah looks like an average Arabian princess in media (like Princess Jasmine from Aladdin). She has long black hair in a thick ponytail with a tiara having a red jewel with two emeralds in between, gold heart-shaped earrings, a necklace that matches the tiara, an orange bra with a cream strapless top, a white sash around her waist, sea green bedlah pants, and red Arabian slippers.


She is a kind and friendly princess, but also brave and determined. She has a habit of kissing people to show thanks, not realizing that some people (especially boys) might mistakenly take this a different way.


Mesozoic Meltdown[]

In The 39 Thieves, Princess Zahrah's caravan was heading back to the royal palace in 757 AD when they were attacked in the desert by Zayid and the 39 Thieves (normally 40, but one was sick), who overpower her guards and take her prisoner to their treasure cave hideout, leaving her locked inside. While in their hideout, she encounters a golden lamp, and, upon rubbing it, the card of an Isisaurus inside activates from an unseen falling water drop from the ceiling. Believing the dinosaur to be the genie of the lamp, she names it "Genie", easily befriending the gentle beast, who leads her towards the exit. They encounter the D-Team soon after (Rex falling immediately lovestruck), and Zahrah agrees to help them look for the next Cosmos Stone, but Gabbro soon interferes, the defeat of his dinosaur triggering a cave-in and swift evacuation. When Ace brings Zahrah out after she trips, she gives Rex a kiss on the cheek (shocking the others). Hiding, they overhear a returning Zayid mention Rasheed, prime minister to Zahrah's father the Sultan, and they quickly head for the city to stop the suspected plot.

Riding atop Genie's back through the desert, they are stopped by Zayid and the 39 Thieves in Desert Heat, Zahrah confronting them before Zayid has the Alpha Gang unleash their dinosaurs. Zahrah is lassoed by Zayid in the confusion, but Chomp stomps on the rope to free her, prompting her to give Max a kiss after the battle (shocking Zoe again). When the group rests at an oasis that night, Zahrah reveals she's never had a deep connection like between Max and Chomp, everyone treating her as a princess instead of herself, but Max points out how Genie doesn't. The next morning, however, they are attacked by Foolscap, who thinks they have the Cosmos Stone, but is quickly defeated.

After reaching the City of Zahrah (named for Zahrah's great great great grandmother) in Princess of the City, and leaving Genie in a nearby oasis, they find it overrun by the 39 Thieves and have to quickly escape Zayid in the streets. They run across the unwillingly subservient Alpha Trio, who report both her father and Dr. Z are imprisoned, with Rasheed on the throne. Sneaking back out, Zahrah suggests they avoid the palace's new guards by using a secret tunnel she'd heard of, but doesn't know the location of. They sneak back in to buy local outfits and food with some treasure Zoe pocketed from the cave, passing a street magician named Aladdin selling fake genie lamps, but when they're spotted by the Thieves, Aladdin leads them to his hideout as Chomp scares off the bandits. He admits to knowing the location of the passage, Zahrah accepting his help despite Rex's suspicions, but when they are ambushed by Zayid at the passage doorway, Aladdin's partner in crime Jon-Jon is revealed as the informant. She is grabbed by one of the Thieves before Shear tries taking her instead, Zahrah briefly getting caught in Lexovisaurus' Sand Trap with Zoe and Paris, but the dinosaur battle collapses the tunnel entrance. Aladdin stops Shear's next attempt to grab Zahrah, letting the group escape her and the regrouping Thieves.

They return to Genie at the oasis in Malice in the Palace, settling instead to take the front way in, riding Genie all the way up to the palace itself. Zahrah tries leading Genie around the dinosaur battle with the Alpha Trio (by Zayid's orders), but Shear returns and takes control of Genie by forcibly applying Spectral Armor, catching Zahrah when the new Genie throws her off. The ensuing battle takes out the palace water tower, flooding the dungeon with her father, so she relents and leads Shear to the red gemstone in the throne room tapestry, believing it to be the Cosmos Stone being sought after, but it isn't and Shear shatters it while Zahrah tries fleeing. She's dropped at the edge of the palace roof, but before Shear can push her off for not knowing where the real Cosmos Stone is, Aladdin lassoes the Space Pirate's wings and lets her roll away, Zahrah giving him a thanking kiss (shocking Max and Rex out of their crushes, realizing their kisses were just her way of being friendly). However, Zahrah can't convince the rampaging Genie to stop, forcing Chomp and Ace to defeat him. With her father freed and the Thieves arrested, Zahrah thanks each of the D-Team and their dinos with a kiss (shattering Aladdin), while being thankful Genie is safe from Shear's spell in his card, before they teleport back to the Backlander to save their own parents.
