History[edit | edit source]
Early History[edit | edit source]
Aeonisig serves as Roald's advisor, a position he has held since at least Year 160 of the Fifth Age, according to the Varrock Census of that year. He is also a cleric of the Church of Saradomin, and an apparent extremist. He previously believed that the edicts were created by Saradomin.
Despite being a cleric appointed as the King's spiritual advisor by the Church, Aeonisig is also a skilled combatant, having fought in the Wilderness. During the Zamorakian Insurrection of 165, he was the leader of the Inquisition of Saradomin, where he and his men arrested and/or killed anybody believed to be Zamorakian. Within the year though the Inquisition is disbanded and he goes back to being an advisor.
Although Varrock has free religion in theory, there has been much persecution of other religions in the city recently, particularly of worshippers of Zamorak. It is likely that he influenced this, as he implies that he does not like other religions.
Attack on Varrock[edit | edit source]
Aeonisig is one of five potential descendants of the Elders of Varrock, and was given the Shield of Arrav by the adventurer to see if he was compatible with it, which he was not. If he pryed further, he revealed that he is not a genuine desendant of the elders, as his great-grandfather was adpoted into the Raispher family; he also informed them that the last genuine Raispher was Lucinda, who married into the Fitzharmon family.
Growing Woes[edit | edit source]
Upon learning from the adventurer that werewolves were breaching the Salve and kidnapping civilians, Aeonisig persuaded Roald not to send an army to Morytania, citing the Edicts of Guthix. As a result, Roald simply enacts a mercenary protocol.
Incompetency[edit | edit source]
After the adventurer informed Roald of a potentially growing vampyre threat to the kingdom, Aeonisig attempts to dissuade King Roald from directly intervening in Morytania, citing the Edicts. The adventurer points out the werewolves are still crossing the Salve and the Zamorakian splinter group occupying the temple, causing Roald to angrily ask Aeonisig why he wasn't informed of such events. Aeonisig claimed that they weren't worth his time, causing Roald to become furious with Aeonisig's general incompetence and told him to quickly prepare a scouting force.
Aeonisig still moved slowly despite the apparent threat, much to Roald's anger. He finally prepared the force to scout the temple, where he was terrified to see vyres west of the Salve. Aeonisig had the adventurer prepare the temple for a defence against the vampyres by strengthening the river, clearing the temple of the Zamorakians and arming Rovin and his scouts. The adventurer's attempts to strengthen the river caused several juvinates to turn into feral vampyres, which Aeonsig did not appreciate as it didn't do anything to solve the problem.
When Vanescula returned a second time, the adventurer had strengthened the river once again. Vanescula sent four vyrewatch, who immediately reverted to humans. Aeonisig was delighted to see the vampyres unable to do anything about it, but became disappointed when the adventurer, Efaritay and Safalaan refused to kill Vanescula. Efaritay stated that he would have to go through her, upon which Aeonisig quickly backed down, not wishing to evoke the Icyene and Saradomin's wrath on him. He informed Roald of the events, but Roald, still grossed by his general incompetence, sent him back to Morytania to serve as his ambassador in Meiyerditch, much to his disappointment.
Aeonisig was not pleased with his new role, believing it to be a punishment. The adventurer told him that it would be best if he had another view of the situation in Morytania, which he agreed with, but promised to keep the alliance afloat to return to Roald's good graces. He began offering the civilians aid if they brought him shipments of blisterwood, which would allow Varrock to fend off against a vampyre invasion should the alliance fail.
