Soran, Emissary of Zaros chathead.png

Soran is the mysterious, cloaked emissary of Zaros. He can be found in south-west Varrock wielding a glowing ancient staff. According to Soran, if one chooses to follow Zaros, Zaros will act as a "dauntless, all-knowing protector". He will give various tasks to complete in addition to a banner of Zaros and a Book of the Gods. The title "[Name] of Zaros" may be activated through this emissary.

Soran was also found on the north-east part of Tuska, during the Tuska Comes world event. He was only visible whilst wearing the ring of visibility or after Fate of the Gods, if you have Sliske's Gift.

Soran was featured in the first clue of the 2013 Festive Cryptic Clue Fest.

Soran will swap pieces of the inquisitor staff (inquisitor's staff ornament, rod and censer) for 10,000,000 coins each. Simply use the item on him and select the desired piece to be exchanged for.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Transcripts Soran, Emissary of Zaros speaks in:

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • patch 7 January 2014 (Update):
    • Zaros' name has been capitalised in Soran's dialogue.
  • patch 13 August 2013 (Update):
    • A typo when a player has been supplied with body armour for a god emissary has been fixed.
  • patch 4 June 2013 (Update):
    • The Zaros emissary now has a purple staff instead of a red one.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The top of his staff used to glow red, but was changed to purple in an update.
  • For a brief period after the Battle of Lumbridge began, Soran vanished from his post in Varrock. This glitch has since been fixed. A Jagex Moderator claimed on the forums, that Soran had simply taken a holiday to Oo'glog Recreational Relaxation Resorts in the VIP section that no one else could access, while addressing the glitch. During this time, the only way to contact him was through the banner of Zaros.
  • It is possible that Soran has the ability to influence the Shadow Realm, as he could only be seen with a ring of visibility or Sliske's blessing on Tuska's back during the Tuska Comes world event.
  • A "Professor Soran" wrote a book titled "Sliske's Game: A Storyline", which the player reads during Azzanadra's Quest. The book recounts the events of Sliske's Endgame. The Blood Bank Ledger found in City of Senntisten, the next quest in that narrative, mentions a person named Soran Zahma.
