Darve chathead.png

Darve is a Khazard trooper employed as Movario's bodyguard, and is usually found near Movario, typically in areas underneath Lumbridge like the Dorgesh-Kaan South Dungeon or Lumbridge Swamp Caves. Should players be caught pickpocketing Movario, Darve will hit them.

Darve prefers using physical force to tackle issues,[1] and has trouble understanding Movario's theories.[2] He also has a mercantile streak, wanting to sell the Stone of Jas.[3] Despite his aggressive attitude, he is discomforted by the creatures of Lumbridge Swamp, such as the light creatures and Juna.

He is scared of Surok Magis, considering the mage to be mad,[4] and also fears Lucien, hoping they never meet.[5] Movario holds him in contempt, often telling him to be silent.[6]

He accompanied Movario during the wizard's research into the Elder Artefact. With the help of an adventurer impersonating Surok Magis, they found their way into the Ancient Guthix Temple, where they found the Stone. They attempted to take the Stone for themselves, but the unexpected arrival of Lucien with his tormented demons and the Guardians of Armadyl forced Movario to teleport them to safety without their prize. Darve was later recalled by General Khazard.[7]

Following these events, Movario soon learned of the Infernal Source and requested Darve's services as a bodyguard. Darve refused however, fearing the place's link to Surok.[8]
