After some trouble with a few monsters, they reach his cave. He agrees to help them, if they do something for him in return: chop down the Tree of Life, an ancient tree, and bring it to him. A
manticoreis guarding this tree, but it is no match for He-Man. The tree, which is sentient, agrees to be chopped down to save Man-at-Arms' life. Suddenly He-Man's conscience stops him; he cannot take a life to save one, and spares the tree. He returns and tells Granamyr of his failure, but the old dragon proclaims it was a test of He-Man's mercy and wisdom and that he has done well. The dragon provides them with a spell to save Man-At-Arms.
* This is Granamyr's only minicomic appearance. Although he is red in the television series, in the comic he is green.
