Herman Caranos is the director of the Piscatoris Fishing Colony. His brother, Franklin Caranos, also works at the colony. Herman and his brother originate from East Ardougne and he's always been into fishing, unlike Franklin.
The colony is in peril because Sea trolls are attacking it. During the quest Swan Song, the player helps Herman defeat the Sea Trolls. Completion of the quest unlocks the Piscatoris Fishing Colony, which is the only place where players can catch monkfish.
A player can search Herman's desk to receive a copy of Herman's book, which is an incomplete biography of the Wise Old Man.
- He appears to be holding to what is believed to be a clue scroll in his left hand. It could, however, just be an ordinary scroll.
