Yokai was a necromancer who lived in the Zarosian Empire during the Second Age. The inquisitor Aurelius describes her as a strange woman, most likely human but with a darkness to her.
Aurelius questioned Yokai as she had been found to be suspected of heresy. Yokai said that she had been digging in the city graveyard to seek out the monstrous fungus that threatened to consume and infect the city, before it was fought back and sealed away beneath the graveyard. Aurelius deemed her to be speaking nonsense.
- In Japanese folklore, Yōkai are a class of supernatural entities and spirits.
- ^ Inquisitior's Memoirs (page 4), written by Aurelius, RuneScape. "Today there were four suspected heretics that needed my attention. [...] Yokai the necromancer was the final heretic on my list. She was a strange woman, human as far as I could tell, but with a darkness to her."
- ^ Inquisitior's Memoirs (page 4), written by Aurelius, RuneScape. "She answered all of my questions with an honesty that was almost charming. She had been digging in the city graveyard again. When I asked her why, she claimed she was seeking out the monstrous creature that was sealed away there. She spoke of the dread corruption that plagued our city so long ago. A monstrous fungus that threatened to consume and infect the city, before it was fought back and sealed away beneath our dead. Nonsense of course."
