The Justiciars were elite warriors in Saradomin's army during the God Wars. Selected from a variety of races, they were all chosen by Saradomin himself who granted them great power. Some justiciars worked alone as assassins behind enemy lines, while some led entire armies.
At Hallowvale's height, there were four known Justiciar groups operating - the Lion, Owl, Unicorn and Wolf; these Justiciars led knights under their groups for various duties, whether it be for battle or for maintenance purposes. The Lions were a group of skilled mages, the Wolves dispatched of monsters, while the Unicorns maintained the Hallowed Sepulchre.
During Lowerniel Drakan's invasion of Hallowland, many of these Justiciars fell in battle. The armour of several Justiciars who fell in battle against Lord Drakan were claimed as trophies and are now stored by Lady Verzik Vitur in a vault within Ver Sinhaza, the former palace of Queen Efaritay. However, the Justiciar of the Lion, Phosani, defected and joined the Zamorakians, as she felt abandoned by Saradomin. The turncloaks were welcomed by the vampyres. Phosani later founded The Sisterhood and eventually succumbed to the side effects of the Elixir of Everlasting.
The Justiciar of the Owl, known to be Zachariah, was somehow able to escape Hallowvale's fall, although it is possible he may have not been involved in the battle in the first place. Zacariah can now be found in the Wilderness, hunting the demon Porazdir. As he is human and being one of the original Justiciars, he is several thousand years old, with magic prolonging his life, as one of knights mentioned that he did not recall a magical hand. Phosani remains in a deep eternal sleep in the Sisterhood Sanctuary.
