Lord Francis Kurt Handelmort is the wealthiest man in Ardougne and plays a background role in the Tribal Totem quest.
Although unseen in-game, he possesses great wealth, which is evident from his booby-trapped two-story mansion coupled with aggressive guard dogs, as well as a butler and gardener in his service.
However, his shadier activities remain unknown to public, such as stealing a revered artefact from a native tribe in Karamja.
- In Runescape Classic, Lord Handelmort's middle name was Bradley, but it was changed to Kurt in RuneScape 2.
- His name may be a reference to Kurtz, the antagonist in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, the antagonist interfering with the original jungle inhabitants.
- Lord Handelmort's name may be a reference to Lord Voldemort, the main antagonist in the Harry Potter books.
