Zandar Horfyre is a dark wizard and teacher located on the top floor of the Dark Wizards' Tower. He does not take kindly to unwanted visitors or people attacking his students, curtly demanding they leave. He is willing to use magic against those who refuse to listen, teleporting trespassers to Lumbridge Swamp, but gives those who abide by his request a chance to leave.
He is known to the fairies of Zanaris, being respected for his knowledge of magical illnesses. He respects the fairies in turn, as Fairy Nuff healed him of a mortal injury obtained while investigating the otherworldly beings. When the Fairy Queen is injured fighting a tanglefoot, he becomes distressed upon being informed by an adventurer, but diagnoses the Queen as having her magical and life essence sapped. Although he does not know how to reverse or restore the lost essence, he directs the adventurer to the necromancer Malignius Mortifer, who fought a tanglefoot many years ago and who therefore may have greater knowledge of the creature.

Update history[edit | edit source]
- patch 4 June 2013 (Update):
- Players are no longer teleported onto the Nexus after talking to Zandar Horfyre in the Dark Wizards tower.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- After the Nexus was released, Zandar's teleport would land the player directly in the middle of the Nexus pit, between all the tentacles, an area they should not be able to get to. This has been fixed.
- If you choose to say "Okay, I was going anyway.", he will respond by telling you to shut the door behind you, although there is no door anywhere in the tower.
- Zandar Horfyre is wearing an old Ahrim's hood and wielding an old staff of air.
