History[edit | edit source]

Becoming regent of Asgarnia[edit | edit source]

In the years 162-163 of the Fifth Age, King Vallance, ruler of Asgarnia, fell very ill in his old age. Unable to rule in this state, Sir Amik took over the management of the kingdom, ensuring the White Knights filled the power vacuum and making himself regent of Asgarnia.[1]

In the year 163, the White Knights declared that the Kinshra were no longer to have any political power within Asgarnia. Lord Milton of the Kinshra responded by declaring war against Falador. The White Knights and the Kinshra fought a great battle to the north of Falador, but it resulted in a draw as both sides were unable to overpower the other.[2]

War of 164[edit | edit source]

Betrayal at Falador, Return to Canifis, and Legacy of Blood article This article or section contains information from Betrayal at Falador, Return to Canifis, and/or Legacy of Blood.
It is generally considered canon, unless contradicted in-game, in which case the game takes precedence.

In the year 164 of the Fifth Age, after the Battle of Edgeville Monastery, Sir Amik received the news of the battle from a letter by Arisha, a Guthixian priestess, who recounted the events.[3] After hearing Squire Theodore's report of the battle, Sir Amik insisted that Kara-Meir stay at Falador.[4] In exchange of this condition, Kara-Meir asked to train with the White Knights, to which Sir Amik accepted, but he put forward another condition.[5] Having learned the nature of Gar'rth, a werewolf-human hybrid, he ordered to keep him within Falador Castle, so as to not worry the population of Falador further, already fearful of the threat of going to war with the Kinshra, and to keep him safe.[6]

Amidst rumours of a possible defeat of Falador within the city, Sir Amik ordered for any dissenters and seditionists to be arrested, prohibited gatherings of more than fifteen citizens, and any mobs to be immediately dispersed.[7] He conscripted any able men, including retired knights, to fight in the war.[8]

During the Siege of Falador, Sir Amik joined the battle. He and his army cut easily through the goblin infantry north of Falador. This turned out to be a trap, and the Kinshra army, led by Lord Sulla, surrounded Sir Amik's army. His life was saved by Nicholas Sharpe, the master-at-arms of the White Knights, who prevented Sir Amik from being impaled by two Kinshra lines who had closed in on him.[9] As the Kinshra army cut through the White Knights' army, Colonel Payne, leader of the Falador City Guard, called for the knights to retreat.[10] As Sir Amik was injured, a young squire helped him up on his horse and sent him back to Falador.

Given the state of Sir Amik, his valet, Bhuler, disguised himself as Sir Amik and rode out of the city gates with the remaining knights, squires and peons to keep morale up. They defeated the Kinshra, but Bhuler was mortally wounded. During the fight between Lord Sulla and Kara-Meir, the former gloated about having killed Sir Amik, but Kara-Meir told him that the person who he had killed was Sir Amik's valet.[11][12]

After the siege, Sir Amik asked Theodore to become a recruiting sergeant for the White Knights, to take advantage of his recently earned fame, and head to Varrock to recruit. Additionally, upon his return before the summer of 165, he and Squire Marius would be made knights.[13] Due to the losses in the battle, Sir Amik ruled to admit recruits older than usual, as well as cutting a year off the training in order to increase their numbers quicker.[14]

For their contribution to the war effort, Sir Amik approved the dwarves' request to open a Mining Guild north-east of Falador, a petition that had been formerly rejected for years.[15]

Operation: Dawn Ascent[edit | edit source]

At some point between the years 164 and 169, the White Knights, led by Sir Amik, carried out an operation to capture a powerful knight of Kinshra, Iban. Being higher in number, Sir Amik was over-confident. Iban killed one White Knight after another, but Sir Amik insisted they press forward. In order to stop the bloodshed, a junior White Knight, Sir Owen, ignoring his commanding officer, withdrew from battle and, from the shadows, put an arrow through Iban's skull.[16] Such deed was considered an act of cowardice that violated the White Knights' code of honour, and Sir Owen was nearly expelled from the order, had it not been for Sir Tiffy Cashien, who recruited him into the Temple Knights.[17] Despite his actions, Sir Amik himself recommended Sir Owen to the Temple Knights.[18]

Iban was eventually resurrected by Kardia and later killed by the adventurer.

Business with Doric[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during What's Mine is Yours.

In the year 169, the adventurer helped Doric relaunch his business by making a high-quality bronze dagger and bronze sword for Sir Amik, as a profile for his work. When the adventurer presented the weapons to Sir Amik's squire, Squire Cerlyn, Sir Amik was already meeting a dwarf in Doric's name. The adventurer interrupted Sir Amik's meeting and revealed the dwarf to be an impostor. The dwarf confessed, but insisted on making business with the White Knights, to which Sir Amik categorically rejected.[19] The dwarf disclosed himself to be Boric, Doric's son, and the adventurer took him to see Doric.

Dealings with the Temple Knights[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Recruitment Drive and Wanted!.

Sir Amik put forward the adventurer's name as a potential member for the Temple Knights order, who then successfully completed the trials required to join their organisation.[20] However, the adventurer could not become a Temple Knight due to a decree that only allows White Knights to join the order.[21] In order to circumvent this rule, Sir Tiffy Cashien, of the Temple Knights, sent word to Sir Amik that Solus Dellagar, a powerful mage and mass-murderer, had returned to Asgarnia from his permanent exile, and that he should send all available White Knights to confront him.[22][23] This would prompt Sir Amik to pronounce the adventurer as a deputised White Knight.[24] After they hunted down and captured Dellagar, Sir Amik promoted them to a full-fledged White Knight.[25]

The Secret Council of Gielinor[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Recipe for Disaster.

During the decennial meeting of the Secret Council of Gielinor in Lumbridge Castle, the feast prepared by the castle's cook and the adventurer unintentionally broke the spell that kept imprisoned the Culinaromancer, a food magician who attempted to kill the members of the secret council 100 years prior.[26][27] As a member of the council, Sir Amik attended the summit. The Culinaromancer interrupted the meeting but, before he could attack the council, fortuneteller Aris intervened and froze the flow of time within the room. In order to free Sir Amik and protect him from the culinaromancer's magic, the adventurer had to prepare a creme brulee supreme flambéed by K'klik, one of the last fairy dragons.[28]

The Void Pests[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during A Void Dance.

Ali Tist, a vendor, was selling strange boxes in Falador, and would not answer to what's inside of them or how he obtained them. The Void Knights, the Temple Knights and the adventurer found out that the boxes had an unsolvable puzzle mechanism, and that inside the boxes there was pest goo. Sir Tiffy Cashien told the adventurer to ask Sir Amik for some leverage on Ali, and they did. Despite Sir Amik's suspicions about the involvement of the Temple Knights, he wrote a search warrant for Ali's wares.[29]

The Battle of Lumbridge[edit | edit source]

After the death of Guthix, his edicts were broken and the gods who had been banished by him were free to return to Gielinor. Saradomin was the first to return, and Zamorak came back through a portal that he created west of Lumbridge. Attempting to steal the power of the tears of Guthix, Zamorak's wrecking near the city called the attention of Saradomin, who appeared and attacked him. A long battle ensued and Saradomin asked the White Knights for help. Heeding the call of his god, Sir Amik sent the White Knights to fight for Saradomin.[30] Using the power of the divine tears gathered from the battlefield, Saradomin dealt an important blow to Zamorak, destroying some of his power and leaving him unconscious. Before Saradomin could deal the killing blow, Moia, the Zamorakian general, teleported Zamorak out.

After the battle, Saradomin took residence in the White Knights' Castle in Falador.

The Invasion of Falador[edit | edit source]

The Kinshra staged an invasion against Falador as a distraction to the White Knights in order to find the lost artefacts of King Raddallin, the founder and first king of Asgarnia.[31] Lord Daquarius of the Kinshra sought the lost sword and banner of King Raddallin as tokens which he would use to give the Kinshra the legitimacy to rule Asgarnia, as the sword was commissioned by King Raddallin as a gift for Lord Valzin, founder of the Kinshra, for his help in helping the kingdom of Asgarnia flourish.[32] Sir Amik believed that the records containing the location of the banner were lost during the Siege of Falador.[33]

Assault on Zamorak's Stronghold[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Evil Dave's Big Day Out.

Years after the Battle of Lumbridge in the Sixth Age, a meeting between the White Knights was to happen at a cave east of the Kalphite Hive. The plan was that Saradomin and the White Knights would ambush Zamorak, getting to him through one of his resource dungeons and attacking him while he is alone. While drunk, Sir Amik spilled the location of the meeting to the World Guardian, who, at the time, had his body swapped with Evil Dave's.[34] The White Knights found Zamorak's hideout on the 60th floor of Daemonheim and, led by Saradomin and Sir Amik, began the assault on Zamorak's Stronghold. Unbeknownst to Saradomin, Zamorak had already learned of his operation through a mole infiltrated in White Knights' Castle and through Moia's powers, who infiltrated Evil Dave's mind.[35][36] Zamorak manifested himself in front of Saradomin, killing Sir Tenlee. The White Knights and the Kinshra, along with their respective gods, engaged in battle, resulting in numerous casualties in both sides. Sir Amik was one of the few survivors.

Council of Burthorpe[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Desperate Times.

After the events of Sliske's Endgame, Seren organised a council of world leaders and influential people from all over Gielinor to deal with the threat to all life by the Elder Gods. As regent of Asgarnia and leader of the White Knights, Sir Amik was part of the council. Seren proposed the creation of a great garden that would appease the Elder Gods, and Sir Amik offered a workforce to make this happen.[37] Both Moia and Lord Daquarius advised the World Guardian to not trust the White Knights.[38][39] If however, the World Guardian chose the White Knights as a workforce, Pharaoh Osman and Vanescula Drakan would not allow the garden to be built in the Kharidian Desert and Morytania, respectively, due to them being a military force under Saradomin.[40][41] For the same reason, neither Azzanadra nor the Godless would provide seeds for the garden.[42][43]

During a conversation at Varrock Palace, Sir Amik asked King Roald to conscript young men from Misthalin as a defence against a possible plot from the Kinshra, and he begrudgingly accepted.[44]

Elder Threat[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Azzanadra's Quest.

Sometime after Kerapac's plan was foiled, Azzanadra grew disappointed by the council's inaction and lack of foresight: in his mind, it was not the Elder Gods that threatened Gielinor, but their unhatched offspring. Setting out to seek the Gielinorian Elder Halls with the aid of Trindine and the World Guardian, Azzanadra tasked the duo with summoning Saradomin (who was offworld at the time) and requesting permission to use his crown in the hope that it could track down the Elder Gods' eggs. After recruiting Sir Owen to their cause, the World Guardian attempted to ask Father Frith to perform the summoning ritual, but much to everyone's chagrin he insisted that Sir Amik provide his permission first. Sir Amik, in turn, insisted that he would grant his permission only if Padomenes could guarantee that, should Saradomin choose to perform an inspection on the new recruits, they would get a pass. When the World Guardian and their companions became mired in red tape, they opted to perform the ritual themselves; and while Saradomin confessed that his crown would not help them find the eggs (having attempted to do so himself), he elected to stay in Falador in order to ensure that everything was in order.

However, it turned out that the search for the Elder Halls was but a cover for Azzanadra's real plan: stealing Saradomin's crown for Zaros. Having acquired intel that Saradomin would perform a secret rite during which he would temporarily remove his crown, he sent Trindine and Sir Vey Lance, head of operations for the Temple Knights (secretly a Chthonian demon named Veilinius) to infiltrate the White Knights' Castle during the rite. Although Azzanadra and his agents failed to steal the crown by themselves, ultimately Zaros teleported into the scene to steal it himself by force. A shocked Sir Amik apologized to Saradomin for the catastrophic breach in security, assuming full responsibility and offering his life in order to make amends. After calming down, however, Saradomin spared him and took the blame upon himself for failing to see it coming.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Sir Amik Varze on a stamp from postbags.
  • When asked about the "Siege of Falador", Sir Amik Varze will mention Kara-Meir and Sir Theodore Kassel, though he replies sadly that "...[Sir Theodore] is no longer with us." These are references to Betrayal at Falador, the first RuneScape novel which culminated in the Siege of Falador. Additionally, Kara-Meir and Squire Theodore were major protagonists in the story.
  • As with many of the White Knights and Temple Knights, his name is a play on words; when spoken with a non-rhotic (British English) accent, it sounds like "ceramic vase".
  • Sir Amik is an alcoholic, and has appeared intoxicated on several occasions. This is because drinking is one of the only secular activities the White Knight code allows.
  • Sir Amik Varze may hold the title of Grand Master like his predecessor Grand Master Perior, but he does not actually use it ingame.[45]
  • In the first novel, Betrayal at Falador, he is shown to keep a hawk as a pet.
