Hey all, i just wanted to post a very quick, not much evidence theory.

In the Lord Of Vampyrium quest, Drakan states that one of the Myreque or one of their allies killed Safalaan Hallow's father, King Ascertes. Vanescula states that she did not kill him, so one of the Myreque must have, so Ascertes must have become a vyre. What if we killed him at the end of Branches Of Darkmeyer? Could it explain the power of one of the most vicious Vampyres of all time? That is right, what if Vanstrom Klause.....is King Ascertes Of Hallowvale.


I know that Ascertes was just a human but he could very well have been a powerful one, perhaps proficient in the art of magic? Drakan may have controlled Ascertes' mind to believe he was a vyrelord (yes he can mind control, even w/out the ring of Charos), and then Drakan turned him into one of his most trusted vyres. It really is ironic if this were true...How Safalaan's biggest enemy was his own father, warped into a creature of darkness, who was once a being of purity under Saradomin...

I thought it would've been more of a plot twist if Veliaf was actually a vampyre in disguise who killed Ascertes shortly after the capture of Hallowvale, and went into hiding out of guilt, only to found the Myreque centuries later. Janos Morgan of Asgarnia

Yea i saw your theory but i think my one makes a load of sense...Drakan can mind control, so maybe he tricked Ascertes into thinking he was a vyre and renamed him Vanstrom Klause...
Besides this would still be a plot twist if Vanescula knew all along and then tells us that we are the killer of poor Safalaan's dad...

Efaritay still being alive (the ??? in the prision cell) could give us some insight into this. Maybe she saw Ascertes being transformed as a method of torture! Janos Morgan of Asgarnia

We will almost certainly see Efaritay in RoB and she will definitely be fighting Vanescula, so maybe if we tell her about our achievements in the Myreque, she could get upset at the mention of Vanstrom and tell us that we killed him in vyre-mode...

When did Vanescula say it wasn't her? Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.
