The local thug is an NPC that is located in East Ardougne in the Flying Horse Inn and in a small house by the fairy ring east of Edgeville. The local thug can only be seen after While Guthix Sleeps, and replaces Lucien that was once in those locations. He is accompanied by a Local Mage in the house by Edgeville.
As servants of Lucien, the thugs will hand out pendants of Lucien in place of their master.
