    The harem of Tillman was protected by a door with many locks. Darth and four slaves were in charge of guarding this door.

    Knowing the weakness of men, Tillman had distributed the keys in such a way that Darth could only open the door if he was with any one of the slaves, and the slaves could only open it if three of them worked together.

    How many locks did the door have?

    You forgot to mention the most important fact. This whole episode occured at the recently vacated Neverland Ranch. Those secret passages NOW come in handy for the RIGHT reasons. Funny, those other guys never asked why I left so often.

    There are seven locks on the Harem door, numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. Darth has first six keys (1,2,3,4,5, and 6)

    The slaves have each the seventh key (7)
    and also each of them has some keys as follows:
    - first slave has 1,3,5
    - second slave has 1,4,6
    - third slave has 2,3,6
    - fourth slave has 2,4,5

    WOW! Correct! It will not work with less than seven locks.

    I didn't want to say anything at first, but there is an update to the riddle.

    ONE LOCK.

    a door with many locks is a metaphore. Tillman is very wise and knows the tricks of the trade. However, there is one trick of the trade that cannot be foiled. Tillman installed a bio recognition security door that grants access rights to certain individuals.

    Tillman alone can open the door for obvious reasons. :)

    Darth alone cannot open it with his hand signature. Immediately after Darth places his hand on the pad, the system prompts for the second key, or handprint which belongs to any one of the slaves. Once the two bio schemes are completed, the door will open.

    Tillman's head of security assigned access to all the slaves in a complete succession. Any order of their handprint recognition will grant access as long as there are four unique scans within eighteen seconds. If any of the slaves are out sick, or not present, the door will not open until all four scans can be completed.

    One lock, many codes.
