Movario chathead.png

Movario is a mage, scholar and treasure hunter that is involved in While Guthix Sleeps, Ritual of the Mahjarrat, and in the Archaeology skill. His ultimate goal is to find and study the Stone of Jas, and is hired by Lucien to track it down, as well as to locate another artefact called the Staff of Armadyl. During the quest series, he is accompanied by Darve, a Khazard soldier who acts as his bodyguard.

During the Sixth Age, he acts as the site manager for Infernal Source Dig Site north-east of Varrock.

History[edit | edit source]

Searching for the stone[edit | edit source]

If the adventurer sided with the Guardians of Armadyl, the organisation soon sends the adventurer communiqué informing them of Movario's theft of the Staff of Armadyl. Idria suspects that he has something to do with Lucien's new strategy for obtaining the closely guarded artefact.

Regardless, Lucien the Mahjarrat sent Movario to search for the Stone of Jas. Movario complied, although not out of loyalty to the Mahjarrat; rather, he was interested in studying the Stone. Movario received intelligence that the Stone might be underneath the Lumbridge Swamp. Not being a physical fighter, Darve was assigned to be his bodyguard. They also encountered the Dorgeshuun.

The following takes place during While Guthix Sleeps.

The adventurer, tasked by Crux Eqal and the Guardians of Armadyl to investigate Lucien and his associates, discovered his base and acquires several notes which informed him about the Stone of Jas. Intelligence obtained from both organisations reveal Movario has is at the Chasm of Tears, having hired several Dorgeshuun to navigate the chasm below. Disguised as Surok, the adventurer learns about the existence of the Stone of Jas, which he theorizes is the same as Fist of Guthix and the Eye of Saradomin.

Upon dropping down and investigating the caverns deep underneath the chasm, the adventurer defeats the Stone's guardian and discovers the Stone of Jas. Movario and Darve appeared soon after, the former having suspected the Surok he had spoken to was an imposter, having consulted with Lucien, who confirmed his suspicions. He intended to research the Stone and discover the source of its power, but this was abruptly cut when Lucien arrived, and the two humans fled when Lucien summoned his tormented demons.

More studies[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Ritual of the Mahjarrat.

Movario is found in the southeast corner of the Mahjarrat Ritual Site, where he is continuing his search for the Stone of Jas. After the quest is complete, he can be found studying the residue left by the Stone of Jas near the Banite ore mine in the Glacor Cave. He can provide information about the glacors and the Stone's lingering effects.

The source[edit | edit source]

With more archaeologists coming to study the places of the past, Movario soon learned about the Order of Dis, an ancient Zamorakian cult that operated at the start of the early Third Age, and the Infernal Source. His investigations led him to the area outside the Jolly Boar Inn, where he learned of the Star Lodge, another inn underneath the Jolly Boar which was buried following Forinthry's destruction by Zamorak during the Third Age.

Although the site was of significant importance, Movario was not considered to be a member of the Archaeology Guild, as they dismissed him as someone searching for fame and wealth, much to his anger. He recruited the adventurer to help him, seeing their growing archaeological skills and needing their services as a bodyguard, as Darve refused the job upon hearing that the area could be linked to Surok. Movario also informed the Kinshra of his discovery. The Kinshra had Isaura serve as their representative, but Isaura was skeptical of Movario because of his freelancer status.

The adventurer gave a significant boost to Movario's team, as they soon discovered the Infernal Source and the mysteries it held. Upon meeting Dagon the Gatekeeper, who gave the adventurer a pact to bind demons to their will, they showed it to Movario, who was shocked by the fact that the pact came from an Infernal demon, which was non-existent during the Third Age. It is also shown that he has some knowledge about Summoning.

Movario may be recruited to the player's research team as a part of the Archaeology skill once the player has the completed all the mysteries at Infernal Source.
