The Dragonkin conflicts were a series of attacks by the legendary Necrosyrtes, a group of Dragonkin who spread terror to cool their rage. The conflict took place at some point in the first century of the Fourth Age. Many different heroes rose to the challenge and opposed them. It came to an end when the Dragonkin were definitively repelled by the hero Robert the Strong.[1]

After the abuse of the Stone of Jas by Saradomin and Zamorak during the God Wars, the Dragonkin, unable to stop the False Users, were tortured by Jas' curse and thus cooled their rage by attacking human settlements as the Fourth Age began. After some time, the famous hero Robert and his companion, the panther Odysseus, managed to drive the Dragonkin back to their fortress, where the pair confronted one of them. During the duel that ensued, Odysseus was killed by the Dragonkin and Robert nearly fell as well, but he managed to retaliate and kill his already wounded opponent. As the Dragonkin fell, his brethren refrained from further attacks, fearing death.

Through means currently unknown, Robert himself was reincarnated as a cat named Bob after his death. The Dragonkin would remain imprisoned until 169 of the Fifth Age.

Without active gods, the people had to deal with this problem largely by themselves. Heroes arose to step up to this challenge, one of them being Robert the Strong, who helped drive the dragonkin back to their stronghold where, as far as anyone knows, they sit and brood to this very day."
