“With Uhai's dying words still sounding in their ears, they venture deep into the forest's heart. Lyn moves in utmost silence, cautious not to alert any hidden enemy. However, following on her path, a new Black Fang shadow appears.”
—Opening Narration

Imprisoner of Magic is Chapter 18x (19x, seemingly typoed Prisoner of Magic in Hector's Story). The boss of this chapter is the powerful sage, Aion, who is guarding the entrance to the Dragon's Gate. Although Aion is a very powerful sage, his power is soon negated by the presence of Kishuna, the Magic Seal.

This chapter is obtained by beating The Dread Isle within 15 turns. It is the first of three "Kishuna chapters" in which Kishuna appears (one of which, The Value of Life, only appears in Hector's Story); if all three of the Kishuna chapters (Imprisoner of Magic, Genesis, and The Value of Life) and, in addition, A Glimpse in Time are beaten, Nergal's death quote is expanded, a line from Nils is added between Nergal's defeat and the arrival of the Fire Dragon, and a new CG is used for the FIN picture at the end of the game.

To obtain the side quest of this side quest (i.e. Chapter 19xx), you must be playing Hector's Story, have gotten Nils to Level 7 or greater in Lyn's Story, and have defeated Kishuna in this level.

Unfortunately, this can be quite difficult, as Kishuna will disappear from the map the turn after you first attack him and has high HP and evasion.

In Hector's Story, he will also disappear after 15 turns. However, in Hector's Hard Mode, Kishuna disappears after 12 turns, if Aion has not been defeated or until the turn after he is attacked.
