The Parchment (Italian: La Pergamena) is the fifth episode from the animated series, The Legend of Sleeping Beauty.
While Rakhal is walking around the palace by himself, he discovers a mechanism that functions perfectly because it has been adapted to fit his hand. Inside, he then finds a scroll written in "ancient dinosaur (prehistoric) hieroglyphs." He goes to find his five little dinosaur friends who will help him decipher it. The five of them thus decide to skip school and take the prince to old Mutty who will undoubtedly be able to help him. While they are in the boat on their way to the old man however, Rakhal realizes that the group will be looking for him at the palace and goes, in the form of his astral body to ask permission to stay out.
Chaca, Myellin, and Cordall are so surprised by the apparition that they cannot deny the request. The boat with the six of them on board crosses an area full of volcanoes and wells boiling with magma. At last, after having braved dangerous rapids, they reach the place where old Mutty lives. But the peril persists as the heroes then must devise a way to get past quicksand coupled with meat-eating plants. Old Mutty has no difficulty deciphering the scroll: "Aurora, the last guardian of the vital energy, has been imprisoned by Maya, Tanatos, Barbarian, Magic and Sterminio."
Aurora requests Rakhal to go and free her, because this is the only way he will be able to save princess Kindra along with the world. He is to be the chosen one and, with the help of the five knights, must re-establish equilibrium and defeat evil. Rakhal, to everyone’s surprise, names his five little dinosaurs as his knights and prepares to set off on the task that awaits them.
