In the last episode, Queen Zixi steals the magic cloak from Princess Fluff using deception and cunning. She then finds out that all of her work was for nothing- the cloak does not grant wishes to those that steal it. Zixi grows wiser through her disappointing realization. We are also introduced to a society of quarrelsome creatures called Roly-Rogues that live high on a mountaintop above the cloud line.
