Auriculus is the brother of Ocellus, and along with his brother he was the pet Virius of Zaros in the Second Age. He is mentioned by Zaros during or after Fate of the Gods, and appears in Kharshai's memory during Children of Mah, standing guard over Zaros' throne with his brother.
Auriculus's skull is later mounted as decoration on a sacrificial altar by the Order of Dis cultists.
- 'Auriculus' is the diminutive form of ear (auris) in Latin, and 'Ocellus' the diminutive of eye (oculus).

- ^ Founder's journal page 4, written by Philippa Wharton, page 2, RuneScape. "There is one trophy in particular I wish to show him when he does - the head of Auriculus. It hangs in a place of pride above the altar below."
