The Sacrificial Altar is a location within the Fortress of Time.


Once the Prince arrives on the Island of Time, his main objective is to find and kill Shahdee. Shahdee is responsible for attacking the Prince at sea and slaughtering his entire crew. As he chases her on the island, she eventually leads him into the fortress and to the Sacrificial Altar.

When the Prince first arrives at the Sacrificial Altar, he notices a strange wraith-like creature on a balcony above. He then hears commotion ahead and charges up the stairs to see Shahdee tussling with a mysterious woman. When the woman cries out for help, Shahdee throws her off the edge. The Prince and Shahdee begin their final battle here.

The Prince finally has his revenge as he kills Shahdee in the middle of the altar, by stabbing her in the chest. He then goes and helps the woman off the edge, and asks if he can meet with the Empress. As they are talking, Shahdee gets up and says "Fool. Don't you know, you can not change your fate."[1] Shahdee then disappears in a sand explosion. Leaving the Prince confused, the altar begins to have an avalanche of rubble, causing the Prince and the mysterious woman to be separated.

The Prince returns to the Sacrificial Altar as the Sandwraith. Here he can see Shahdee admit that she failed her mission in preventing the Prince from arriving on the island.
