I think maybe this explains why Tia Carrerre was cast? From Pogue's CONAN III script:

Quote :

Akiro

It was my ancestors who defeated the Red Witch three thousands years ago. They buried her body deep in the jungles of far-away Khitai. And drained her blood for it had been foretold that through her blood Acheron would rise again..


Quote :
Akiro
I am the last of my people. The last to know where Akivasha lay hidden.

Cool.

Sorry, which script is that? For Milius' "King Conan", or maybe for "Conan the Conqueror" later turn into Kull?? scratch

Shit, you own that? You should do one of those great reviews of yours, man. Wink I guess it's a different one from the Kull one you already reviewed, right

I may get around to it, Turd.

Well in this version, Conan has a son which is born at the end of the script, Akivasha gave birth shorty after she hovers in the flame of Korsala. So its born, its a part crane/reptilian man like creature with accelerated growth. Its rather like Alien Resurrection with regards to the connection between Conan and his half-demon son. But it doesnt want to kill Conan when it has him by the neck(rather like in Predator when it holds Dutch up to examine his skull) they realize they have the same eyes..so the creature decides it wants to end its own pain and Conan gives it a mercy kill.

Conan also passes through Cimmeria on his way for the "Breath of Crom", well its coast anyway, by ship. Conan remembers his village, but he doesnt want to stop and visit it, its just a painful memory. Conan ponders if he should give up the throne of Aquilonia and return to being Amra the Lion and his plundering ways. Akiro is a little annoyed because he wants Conan to reclaim the throne and destroy the great evil they both are responsible for and be a real king ect. So Akiro gives him little question, and Conan answers it the correct way as Conan was just pondering before over this years as a pirate. He has the full intention of freeing Aquilonia and keeping the crown. Conan must search for the Breath of Crom in order to extinguish the Flame of Korala whom Crom once loved but was tricked by Set.

There is some changes to the storyline, otherwise its pretty close to Kull script. Akiro is more active than ever. Other than Akiro, there no connection to the previous movies. In this script its Akiro which had once prophesied that Conan would be a king by his hand, rather than the wolf-witch of CTB.

After Zenobia helps aid Conan in the dungeon of the Scarlett Citadel of Orestes, there was some strange serpentine-like plant creature, so they're attacked by some monstrous plant. After Conan slays the beast, he stumbles upon a man in it's clutches and rescues him it turns out its Akiro. The wizard Orestes had him the dungeon and being slowly killed by the plant creature, it was slowly eating away at Akiro's mind for a period of 2 years. So Conan meets up with Akiro again and Conan saves his life, AGAIN(if using CTD),lol.

Interestingly, Akiro magic reanimates the dead once more check it out:

Quote :
CITADEL CATACOMBS - THE GRATED PORTAL- ON ZUKELI

Zukeli's head flops awkwardly on his shoulder, His body slumps against the grate. A harsh laugh is heard. Akiro's

Akiro
Ha! Who is our doorman?


CAMERA BACK. Akiro crouches by the corpse, mimicking the dead man's high voice.


Akiro
Zukeli!...You fat, tittering turd!
(spits repeatedly)
So silent, Eunuch? No taunts now? No torture? Why do you lie so stiff?

Conan
He's dead.

Akiro
(grins)
neatly done too..Your work?
(Conan shrugs modestly)
well dead or alive, he'll open the grate for us.


Akiro squats on thefloor and, dipping his fingers in the pool Zukeli's blood, draws strange signs in it and incants.

Akiro
Rise, pig! Rise from Hell and rise from the cold floor. Open the door for your master. Rise, I say.


Akiro flicks some blood on Zukeli's face. The corpse jerks. Zenobia stifles a cry, Zukeli's body slowly staggers up and his bobbing on his broken next, his blared eyes vacantly staring, he waddles to the lever and cranks it.

The grate rises. Four inches, Six inches. Not quite a foot. Then Zukeli suddenly stops. So does the grate. The dead body slumps forward onto the lever. Akiro's spell is broken. Conan looks at the narrow space dubiously, then at Akiro.

Conan
Thats it?

Akiro
(shrugs)
I'm a little rusty. It's been two years.

Ey, THEY MENTION ME in the fucking script!!! Mr. Green

Quote :

Akiro in that plant is surely took by The Scarlet Cidatel, right. There Conan rescues a captive wizard from a vampire plant. Later this wizard will help Conan recovering his throne...

The alien Conan's son thing is really annoying Shocked

Any known possible castings for this, Cromulus? Guess Akiro was supposedly Mako, Conan would have been Arnold, do you know something about the rest?

No doubt Mako, yes. Akiro wouldve used a sword briefly too, right before one of the kings loyal opens a secret passage and they all escape. This wouldve been the escape from the castle after the funeral pyre battle when CONAN/KULL freed the brother of Zenobia/Zereta.

Zenobia is more active in this script, she takes a pivotal part in the story and even the action, which separates her from Zereta of KULL.

Notice the Wizard uses the same hands gesture of concentration as Akiro in the movie.

The resemblance to Mako is nearly uncanny. Actually I was surprised at how good in shape Mako was in CONAN THE DESTROYER. Shame this movie wasnt made and Mako has now since past on.
