Queen Ellamaria Remanis is the queen of Misthalin, ruling alongside her husband King Roald Remanis III from Varrock, Misthalin's capital. She is unpleasant to people, talking down to those she considers beneath her and being difficult to work with and please.[1][2] She even intimidates her husband.[3] Her ferocity is respected even in Asgarnia, where the Warriors' Guild have a statue of her.

History[edit | edit source]

Early history[edit | edit source]

Ellamaria as a child.

Despite her status, Ellamaria was born a peasant, she lost her parents at an early age to a house fire, an event that would greatly influence her, as she deemed herself weak, and blamed herself that she should have done more to save them. The event caused her to desire to constantly becoming stronger and inspired her to become an adventurer.

At some point during her youth, she worked as a barmaid in the Blue Moon Inn.[4] During the wyrd attacks of year 164 of the Fifth Age, she was very critical of the cover up being done by the Society of Owls, accosting the Asgarnian Sir Theodore Kassel for his role in it. She snuck into the Midsummer Festival party held by King Roald, wearing clothing not suited to her station, and was arrested when she tried to approach the king, as Sir Theodore believed her to be a threat. When King Roald held a parliament to discuss the attacks, she was brought forth as a representative of the common people. She was later released and cared for Ebenezer, a scientist who had accompanied Sir Theodore, after he fell ill. During this time King Roald made frequent visits, though many suspected this was to visit Ellamaria.

When she became queen, Ellamaria took in Bianca, though she did not know that Bianca harboured feelings of resent towards the nobility due to believing that they did not deserve their position and wealth.

Ellamaria, who was not content with the life of a royal, soon adopted the moniker The Raptor, both to enjoy adventuring (and combat) while protecting her husband and the kingdom at the same time, being a particularly skilled slayer.

Idling around[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Garden of Tranquillity.
Ellamaria in her garden of tranquillity.

In Year 169 of the Fifth Age, Queen Ellamaria recruited an adventurer to build her husband a high-end garden despite his allergies, requesting that they do so without using violence.[5] She went to great expense to building her garden, including importing high-quality soil,[6] killing off the last white tree (albeit regrowing it in her garden),[7] and having statues stolen from Lumbridge and Falador. When Roald criticised the garden, she flew into a rage, forcing a compliment out of him and dismissing him. In return for the adventurer's assistance, she gave them a compost potion to allow them to make supercompost in an instant and gave them permission to pick the white tree's fruit.

The following takes place during Defender of Varrock.
Ellamaria protected by the Varrock Guard during Zemouregal's invasion.

Later in the year, Zemouregal launched an attack on Varrock, swiftly overrunning the palace. Her ghost was one of those which appeared to an adventurer in a vision at The Sacred Forge in Camdozaal. She was later seen being guarded by five guardsmen, who formed a barrier to protect her.

Growing Issues[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during New Foundations.

Following the banishment of the gods by the World Guardian to stop Zamorak's demon invasion, the remnants of his followers scattered into the Wilderness and had a civil war. Roald, worried that they would come for the human kingdoms once they finished battling it out, reclaimed the Lumber Yard and asked mercenaries and adventurers to help clear the vale to set up a new fortress there. To both his and Ellamaria's dismay, the hired help refused to, seeing the land cursed.

The World Guardian, having wandered by and overhearing the issue, offered to clear the land and set up their own territory there, successfully building a fort and getting the staff needed to run it.

The following takes place during Murder on the Border.
Dead dark beasts at Fort Forinthry, slain by Ellamaria.

With the construction of the fort, Roald, Ellamaria and an assortment of Misthalian nobles arrived to celebrate the new land, though on the way, they had been ambushed by Zamorakian cultists. Upon meeting with the new noble, Ellamaria talked to them about the fort's lax security (as none had been hired yet) and was worried that the fort would be attacked by demons and the undead. As the banquet was held, Duke Hoarse, one of the attendees, died from poison. Seeing this as an attack on the kingdom, Roald declared that no one was allowed to leave until the incident was resolved. Ellamaria informed the noble that they had until sundown to find the suspect, or they would be forced to deem the fort unsafe and would bear heavy consequences.

During the investigation, the noble was set upon by an assassin but slew them, finding more information about the plot. At the same time, Bianca let in dark beasts from the north gate, which killed Simon and nearly King Roald, but Ellamaria managed to intervene and slew the beasts before they could harm her husband. She then demanded the new noble to explain the dreadful lapses in security, during which they told her that they had been attacked and Siv informed her that someone had knocked the guards out. The World Guardian was eventually able to deduce all the information and found that Bianca was responsible for the entire plot. Roald charged her with treason and Ellamaria offered to execute her, though Roald stopped her from doing so as he wanted her to face trial. Ellamaria then ordered guards to take her out of their sight. Ellamaria then commended the noble for their efforts, expressing discontent with how her friend had become.

Dimension of Disaster[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Dimension of Disaster.

In the alternate reality where Zemouregal won, she was zombified and given the enslaved Arrav as a servant, where she delighted in treating him as a gardener. When his mind was freed, he threw a watering can at her and refused to obey her, causing her to run off and cry at the skeletal remains of her former husband. It is unknown whether she ever took her alter ego as The Raptor in this reality; regardless, The Raptor's signature armour could be found in Zemouregal's treasure room, showing no signs of battle or blood.
