WARNNG: This thread contains major spoilers for both Desprate times and other quests relating to Xau-Tak.
So I've recently completed the new quest and was surprised to learn that Kerapac has been revealed as the next main antagonist with a plan that'd make even Thanos proud. As it seemed all signs were pointing to Xau-Tak being the next main villain. But then I did some thinking what if Xau-Tak and Kerapac are one and the same?
As we know Xau-Tak is capable of communicating with us across time and space. Where as the needle is also tied heavily to the time space continuum. We also know that the host looses their memories when they become host to the needle as we've seen when Primrose transformed into Gail. It's also been stated by Guthix that the needle is broken and is one of the major threats the universe.
So what if eventually the Needle warps Kerapac's mind to the point where all he can remember is our name and seeks revenge against us. As from what we've seen so far Xau-Tak's behaviours seem to be similar to a researcher where no two of his attempts at gaining influence are the same and we know Kerapac was one of the Dragonkin's top researchers.
What's more we even know that Xau-Tak has other Dragonkin amongst his ranks. Most notably The Ambassador and Taraket are faithful servants of Xau-Tak.
But that's just a theory, a Runescape theory. The statement below is false.
The statement above is true.
