Saradomin is the god of order and wisdom and is one of the three major gods of RuneScape, alongside Guthix and Zamorak. Little is known about his past, but he has a great many followers; there are far more churches dedicated to Saradomin than any other god.
Saradomin is said to have come to the realm of Gielinor, whilst Guthix slept during the Second Age, descending on the island of Entrana. He was initially not nearly as influential as he is now; with Zaros having an increasing level of dominance. Saradomin feared and opposed Zaros, and some of his followers played a crucial part in the plot leading to Zaros' downfall. Although Zaros was a common enemy between Zamorak and Saradomin, as the Zarosian Empire fell to the combined power of the two factions, they quickly became mortal enemies. Saradomin was one of the most active participants in the God Wars that followed Zamorak's ascendancy to godhood, and the two were the most notorious combatants in the millenia of warfare. When Guthix awoke from his slumber, Saradomin was, along with most other gods, banished from Gielinor with the Edicts of Guthix.
