Readers of “Raden Mandasia Si Pencuri Daging Sapi” come across Loki Tua through the narrative of Sungu Lembu: where he comes from and how he endured over ten years in Sifar. However, there is a long and winding journey before this cook meets the two young princes. He has been dragged into civil wars, traveled alongside the underground cook clan of Sumpit Merah, and followed the caravan of Sayid Al-Berber, a renowned saint.

Luck and misfortune never cease to test Loki Tua’s resilience. When Loki Tua is overjoyed to acquire seven celestial stone knives, disaster looms on the horizon. When he nearly dies in the desert, he receives the blessing of being adopted by a loving community.

What is truly going on in Loki Tua’s mind when Raden Mandasia expresses his intention to prevent a war between Gilingwesi and Gerbang Agung? Why is he often at odds with Sungu Lembu? And what is the story of Loki Tua’s romance with his brides?
