Zamorak

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Zamorak (colloquially known as Zammy) is the personification and god of Chaos, and one of three major gods alongside Guthix and Saradomin. Though he did not shape the world as much as Guthix, Zamorak did sow chaos in the orderly world as envisioned by Saradomin. Many Saradominists describe Zamorak and his works as "evil".

Zamorak was the second main participant in the God Wars (his representative being K'ril Tsutsaroth). His symbol is two horns joined together.

His followers allegedly burnt the original Wizards' Tower to the ground, depriving the Saradominist mages of much Magic knowledge, in particular how to make runes.

History[edit | edit source]

Zamorak was once a mortal Mahjarrat. He was a general in the army of the god Zaros, until deciding to rebel. While his close followers (including Hazeel, Drakan, Zemouregal, and Viggora) fought off Zaros' bodyguards, Zamorak stabbed Zaros with the Staff of Armadyl. This sent Zaros into a blind rage.

Zaros successfully retaliated and was ready to deliver the final death blow to Zamorak. However, he tripped, causing the Staff of Armadyl to impale Zamorak as well as himself. This caused Zaros' power to flow into Zamorak. Zaros faded out of the dimension while cursing all involved in the revolt to be invisible ghosts for the rest of eternity.

Zamorak only grew more powerful, although he did not become a god until a short time later.

Full Zamorak is considered to be Zamorak full helm, Zamorak platebody, Zamorak platelegs/Zamorak plateskirt, and Zamorak kiteshield.

Zamorak signed his 'Postbag from the Hedge' letters "Strength through Chaos".
