Bail was the overseer of King Solomon’s diamond mines in Africa.
Bail was in charge of the mining in King Solomon's mines. When the miners dug too deep he found a bottomless shaft which led to the underworld. Evil forces from the underworld possessed him turning him into a servant of the Devil. King Solomon sent Shem to seal the mines trapping Bail inside. After two thousand years Shem grew tired and fell asleep. Five Vikings, shipwrecked on the shore of Bengali, accidently discovered sleeping Shem and the mines. Ale, one of the Vikings, picked up the magical key from the hands of Shem and opened the gates of the mine releasing Bail by mistake. While the Vikings fled in terror the doors of the mines shut down with Bail trapped outside the mine unable to return to the underworld.
Bail started looking for the magical key which could reopen the mine gates. The Vikings had made the map showing the way to King Solomon's mines on five engraved stone tablets divided amongst themselves. These were called the Golden Rune.
Finally, the the 21st Phantom located the last part and the key in the Skull Cave itself. Bail hypnotised Guran making him nearly kill the Phantom and open the gates of the mines. At the last moment, however, the Phantom managed to throw the magical key into the fiery bottomless pit. Bail fell into the pit and was destroyed along with the key.
