Habra Khan Adabra (UN-M-1293)
But Habra had always been aware of the plan and arranged for a warning message to be delivered to the police force. 3 minutes before he was due on stage, A dozen police stormed the room, and arrested both men. Incriminating letters and explosives were discovered among the Magician's belongings.

A verdict of guilty was passed and the death sentence given for both men. Alain Dupont was hung in January 1853. But upon the discovery that it was Adabra himself who had alerted the police to the threat, his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.

The authorities had little idea that 77 years later, he would still be serving that "life" sentence. An application for transfer to the keep, that had been turned down some 40 years earlier was finally accepted and Habra became the second permanent "house guest" of the Keep.
