The stranger is a monster who sometimes appears and attacks players when they have one or more Diamonds of Azzanadra in their inventory. He wields a poisoned dragon dagger

The stranger is a Temple Knight assassin dispatched personally by Sir Tiffy to prevent Azzanadra's release.[1]

He has an unusual mechanic where he will follow the player closest to him. This may also happen while he is in combat with the target player. However, he cannot be attacked by players not doing the Desert Treasure quest. Attempting to do so will yield a message, stating: "He has no interest in fighting you." Casting any form of magic on him will lead to a similar message to appear, which says: "He's not after you...".

Notably, the stranger is capable of using the dragon dagger's special attack repeatedly, and more often than a player can. He may potentially land two special attacks in successive ticks - players unable to use Protect from Melee or have low-level armour should avoid him at all costs. He does not seem to be limited to a special attack bar like a player is, and his attack speed varies throughout the fight.

The moment at which the stranger appears is random; he will typically appear when the player is carrying one or more of the diamonds. He can appear right after a diamond is obtained, which can be dangerous as the player may be depleted of supplies. The more diamonds the player has, the greater the chance for him to appear.

When he appears, he says "You are not worthy holding that Diamond of Blood/Ice/Shadow/Smoke!"

If the player kills him, a chat window will pop up with them asking themselves "I wonder what that was all about?"
