Jackals are a species of small, dog-like creatures native to the Kharidian Desert. Jackals are commonly found in the desert's lower reaches, near the cities of Nardah and Sophanem.

Jackals travel in large packs. These packs use their numbers to take down prey much larger than themselves, including humans that have often been weakened by the desert heat. They count as "dogs" for slayer tasks.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When the player examines the Jackal, it gives the text "He has had his day". This is a reference to the saying "every dog has its day" or possibly the book Day of the Jackal.
  • Jackals can be teleported from the Kharidian Desert using a fairy ring.
