The Spirit of Scorpius is a Zamorakian ghost. After completion of Observatory Quest, he will give the player an unholy mould and bless unholy symbols. He is found south-west of Ardougne by the Grave of Scorpius, due north of the Observatory.
Scorpius is close to both the red salamander hunting area and the Ourania Cave.
Whilst alive, Scorpius was an astronomer and had an apprentice named Phyrrys. It is said that he created the art, and that he has a constellation named after him.
Scorpius was later persecuted for his craft and his knowledge and instruments were almost totally lost. The art eventually returned to the world, as discovered in the Observatory Quest.
- Though he is a ghost, the player does not need an amulet of ghostspeak to talk to him. When you do talk to him, the chatbox says, "This powerful spirit seems capable of speaking to you even though you are not wearing an Amulet of Ghostspeak."
