King Ferdinand rules from his palace in Cádiz, Spain. After learning of the Fountain of Youth, King Ferdinand sends his most trusted agent, known only as the Spaniard, to find and destroy the Fountain, because as a devout Catholic, he saw it as an abomination in the eyes of God.

The man gives a logbook that belonged to Ponce de León to Ferdinand. Ferdinand looks page by page finding nothing, but finally discovers an ancient symbol in one of the pages. Right then, he realized that the legends of the Fountain of Youth were true. King Ferdiand then sends the Spaniard to find and destroy the Fountain.
