History[edit | edit source]
Early history[edit | edit source]
Enakhra like the other Mahjarrat originated on the world Freneskae, she along a large number of her kind were brought to Gielinor by Icthlarin during the Second Age, when he and his sister Amascut traversed the universe looking for warriors to help them in the Kharidian - Zarosian War. With the Mahjarrat on their side, the Menaphites managed to push back the Zarosian invaders, but the peace did not last long as the Mahjarrat decided to join Zaros instead. Enakhra was one of the Mahjarrat who grew dissatisfied with the Zarosian Empire. She was very loyal and devoted to the Mahjarrat general Zamorak to whom she built an entire temple in secret in the Kharidian Desert in honour of him. According to legend, she showed her temple to Zamorak, but he spurned her, claiming that he would rather have a weapon that could kill a god than a temple.
Retreat into her Temple[edit | edit source]
Following this, Enakhra dwelt in her temple for thousands of years and did not come out, though the last that the humans in the surrounding area learned was that she was "thinking of ending her rivalry with Akthanakos". In actuality, Enakhra tricked Akthanakos and led him into her temple, where she cursed him and turned him into a Boneguard, a living skeleton to guard her in her solitude.
In the late Fourth Age, an expedition of knights from Avarrocka was sent into the desert to, for unknown reasons, destroy Enakhra. The expedition was a disaster, and all of the knights were killed by the bitter Enakhra, with the exception of one, Pentyn, who was doomed to be trapped in an ancient spell that preserved his life, but kept him cold, miserable and diseased.
Release from her Temple[edit | edit source]
In recent times, taking place during the quest Enakhra's Lament, a Zamorakian mage named Lazim delved into the desert where he knew the temple to be and enlisted the help of an adventurer to uncover it. The adventurer was then able to free Akthanakos, and he and Enakhra vowed to continue their long, drawn-out rivalry in The North.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Her name seems to be based on the word "Arcane" spelled backwards (Arhkane).
