The Dragonkin are a race of powerful and intelligent dragon-like creatures known to have existed during the Fourth age, although it's possible they had existed on RuneScape before then.[1] The dragonkin were powerful and malevolent creatures that spread destruction wherever they went[2]; however, heroes such as Robert the Strong eventually drove them back to their stronghold, where they are currently plotting their return.[3] At some point, they were enslaved by Jas for the task of guarding the Stone of Jas,[4] and were believed by Movario to have been "creatures brought here by gods to support them during the god wars." They are known to have created the dragons and strong evidence from multiple sources suggests that they created dragon equipment, among the most powerful of metals in RuneScape, as well.

The dragonkin, while not immortal, had very long lifespans, and have been known to die only in battle. However, dragonkin are unable to reproduce, and because of this are said to have become afraid of death. To protect themselves and carry on their lineage they created a race of weaker clone beings that could reproduce... those corrupted versions of the dragonkin are known as Wyrms which eventually evolved into Dragons.[5]

Dragon equipment

The dragonkin are thought to be the original creators of dragon equipment.

Mr. Mordaut in a Postbag from the Hedge states, "As for dragon, I'm afraid that my knowledge of this unique metal is limited – the dragonkin never divulged the secret of how it is made..."[6]. Movario also believes that the Dragonkin created dragon metal, in his notes writing, "The demon birds, evil bird spirits of the east: dragonkin, or something else? I have so far deciphered that these strange phenomena are mentioned only cryptically, written down by adventurers who have become their hapless victims. The dragonkin's arrival seems to pre-date most things. In short, the arrival of these creatures - whatever they are - seems to signal the absolute destruction of any local area they are visiting. I suspect that they are creatures brought here by gods to support them during the god wars. Also, I suspect that they are responsible for the metallic 'dragon' items. Where this material comes from is still a mystery." Fairy Aeryka near the Puro-Puro portal in Zanaris states that creatures called necrosyrtes made the dragon metal, however it is possible that necrosyrte is just another term for dragonkin, or that while the necrosyrte made the metal, it was the dragonkin that smithed it into dragon equipment. Her description of them matches the Dragonkin, as she describes them as being 'Not very nice', and also displaying doubts that any had been around for aeons. It's also suggested that the dragonkin are connected to dragon items in some other unknown way: in Postbag from the Hedge #19, a green dragon says, "If you have trouble with us lowly dragons, you have BIG trouble with Kin. They return soon; we feel power growing, calling to us, calling to them... The very weapons that make you strong bring Kin's return ever closer."[7] In Postbag #23, a dragon impling claims: "Dragon stuff? We found it in secret places. Many different worlds, many different places. All hidden. Deep down, in the darkness. Huge piles of things. Left for a long time, though their masters begin to stir."[8]

The Ancient Cavern

The Dragon Forge
The dragonkin are known to have created the Ancient Cavern underneath Baxtorian Falls. Movario's research strongly supports this notion: "Underground ruins of peculiar origin, reported to exist near the Baxtorian Falls. Upon researching the area, I was immediately struck by the precision of some elements within the caverns. [...] I returned and after only twelve days I found interesting, almost invisible arcane symbols - type 12, possibly of the Second Age. Also, interesting markings near to rough-looking steps, the constructions within that cavern must be of Dragonkin origin."[9] In addition, the key required to unlock the mithril door is called the Dragonkin key. As the Ancient Cavern contains a forge used to smith a dragon platebody, this further supports the idea that the dragonkin created dragon equipment.

The Dragonkins' Symbol

The symbol of the Dragonkin.
The compass rose symbol, which is the right half of the above symbol.
The Dragonkin are associated with a symbol with visual similarities to the Stone of Jas. It consists of a circle with a compass rose in the right half, and on the left half, a pattern identical to the one found on the Stone of Jas. There is also another Dragonkin symbol, which is only the compass rose without the Stone.

The symbol is seen on the floor in the cutscene from While Guthix Sleeps, where three Dragonkin are shown congregating. The compass symbols are shown around the main symbol.

It can also be found in the Spirit Realm, on the other side of the weak portal found in the ruins by the coast in level 47 Wilderness, where the symbol can be seen on the walls of the Spirit Realm's version of the ruins. It's unknown how the symbol came to be in the Spirit Realm, but it's possible that the symbols once existed in the real world, but were torn down and thus appeared in the Spirit Realm, similar to the Cursed magic tree's interaction with its real-world counterpart.

In the Dragonkin's castle in the cutscene from A Tail of Two Cats, and in the area seen in the cutscene from While Guthix Sleeps, smaller versions of just the compass rose part of the symbol can be seen dotting the floor.

The left half of the symbol looks like the Fist of Guthix, possibly suggesting that Dragonkin have some relation to Guthix. This is now known to be related to the fact that the Fist of Guthix is another name for the Stone of Jas. The symbol for the Fist of Guthix is basically an imprint of what the Stone of Jas looks like.

Future activities

Dragonkin making plans.

While Guthix Sleeps contains a teaser indicating that the dragonkin will soon become more involved in the affairs of Runescape. The cut-scene at the very end of the quest shows three dragonkin meeting in an unknown location, plotting to "bring terror and pain to the small races."

It has been speculated that Dragonkin are currently hiding beneath Castle Drakan, or elsewhere in Morytania.[10] An imp stated in a Postbag from the Hedge, "Regardin’ Morytania, we steer away from it. Dat place whiffs of dragon poop...which is weird-like, since there ain't been a dragon down dat way for a millemelum."[11]. This could, however, simply be a joke that most of Morytania is a swamp, and swamps are known to stink. Movario's notes obtained in While Guthix Sleeps mention Morytania, the Fist of Guthix arena and the Lunar Isles as having similar energies to each other, implying that the Stone of Jas once resided in all three locations.[12] Given that the Dragonkin were tasked with protecting it, this supports the idea of them having lived in Morytania at some time.

Likewise, the top of the ceremonial lunar staff depicts two dragons intertwined, which lends to the idea that the stone of Jas was found by the magic users of the Fremennik tribe. Corraborating evidence from Fremennik histories state that "As we all know, from the tales told to us in the Secret Tongue, 'magic' was first discovered in these lands by V------- when he accidentally stumbled upon the Stone of J--. The stone was clearly not of this world, and the mere touch of it unlocked something within the mind of V-------. As we know, the stone was instantly removed by those powers who walk a higher Astral Path than ourselves, but its very existence showed V------- possibilities that had never occurred to our kind before." — Basics of Magic, from Lunar Isle

The possible bones of a Dragonkin can be seen in the south central area of the Wilderness Volcano, which say "Could this have been one of the ancient Dragonkin?" upon examination.

Known Dragonkin

Currently, names of only three Dragonkin are known. All of them can be seen during the end of While Guthix Sleeps quest.

Trivia

  • The Dragonkin may be a reference to the 3 witches in the Shakespearian play/book Macbeth.
  • The Oracle says "Do not fear dragons... fear their kin".
  • Dragonkin are highly intelligent,but their dragon counterparts use the same type of language as ogres.
  • Strangely enough, if entirely coincidental, all three of the Dragonkin whom we know to exist possess names that exhibit words which start with the letter 's' and ends with letter 'h'.
  • In conversation with Captain Bleemadge during One Small Favour, when he tells you of T.R.A.S.H., your character will exclaim, "TRASH? What the demonikin are you talking about?" Later on, when speaking with Wizard Cromperty, your character will again demand, "What the demonikin are you talking about?", which could mean that "demonikin" could be the RuneScape version of Hell.
  • With the Orb of oculus, Dragonkin Castle can be seen northwest of the first floor of Pyramid Plunder.
