Commander Zilyana, an Icyene.

The Icyene are a race of incredibly long-lived winged humanoid beings who arrived in Gielinor during the Second Age. The Icyene were aligned to the god Saradomin and are some of his most powerful followers. The Icyene conquered and inhabited the area known as Hallowvale during the Second Age along with humans. Hallowvale became one of Saradomin's most powerful settlements.

When Zaros, ruler of the area north-west of Hallowvale and other areas such as Forinthry, was dethroned by his Mahjarrat general Zamorak, the God Wars began. Many Icyene were deployed from Hallowvale to help Saradomin in the war. Because trained Icyene have the potential to be extremely powerful, they were very useful to Saradomin's armies.

It is assumed that the Icyene were wiped out during the God Wars due to there being no known Icyene other than Commander Zilyana who was frozen in the God Wars Dungeon, when the Edicts of Guthix were put in place.
