Not Barrows related, I assure you.

SPOILERS AHEAD, BE CAREFUL!


Hellooooo. Welcome to a new theory that has barely seen discussion since 2014:

The Sixth Elder God... VOS

Where has she(?) been, her location, state of being, plans?
All things I shall discuss here. But be warned that we have not received much lore in-game surrounding the mysterious entity.

Some background knowledge:
Heart of Stone Post-Quest Dialogue, Senntisten, we speak to Azzanadra about Xenia's plan, and ask who the final chamber (where we fought the Abyssal Guardian) belonged to. Azzanadra believes he knows who, but hesitates to tell us, saying it was just a sort of crackpot theory.

The Light Within, Freneskae, Zaros appears once again as we are bringing back Seren, and gives us some more insight on the Elder Gods. "Six of them, five of form and one of... something else." The plot thickens...

Present day: Runemetrics is released, promo art features a blackboard, said by fellow friend Mod Osbourne to contain some lore secrets. When asked what kind of secrets, he replied "think Elder Gods". A lore thread named Runemetrics blackboard records all info legible, I don't know how to link it sorry. In summary of that thread, symbols, planet drawings, and letters were found. The letters in question refer to the Elder Gods. J<F<W<B<M stands for Jas, Ful, Wen, Bik, Mah. Thats all right, no sixth? WRONG (I hope) Another 3 letter word formed from a morse code stands out... VOS. All Elder God names have 3 letters, so does this my friends. Planets likely refer to Mah trying to create her own universe, but were talking about Vos here.

Location and State of Being

Time for the fun part, theorizing. Please take everything I say as food for thought. Or don't. This thread is going to attempt to link 2 things together that may not make sense, but my main theory, is that she(?) is not either dead or alive, but in between.

What if, and this may get confusing from here on out, Vos did not have enough anima after the last cycle, as Mah had used the rest, which wasnt't even enough, and lacked the energy to sustain herself, suffered more than Mah did? My point is that perhaps Vos was left with 2 choices, "die"(or whatever Elder Gods do) or discard her physical form to survive. This leaves her in possibly endless torment, forever hungry but unable to "die" unless she chooses to regain her physical form and kick the artifact(bucket).

One reason I think of this is how Azzanadra seemed more ghostly after missing numerous Rituals, slowly losing his physical form and fading away, perhaps a similar thing with Vos? They both are made from some sort of Elder energy. I believe that the reason why she is being brought into play now is due to how we are getting closer to the end of our cycle. Perhaps Vos knows that she can absorb the anima of Gielinor to sustain herself and become healthy again.

But where is she? the chamber where we fought the Abyssal Guardian, doesn't it look unfinished? Perhaps she was working on the room until she decided "***** it" and left. She resides there, and has watched everything that happened in the chamber, biding her time till the next cycle.

Alternatively she could be on Freneskae, and the chamber on Gielinor was made by the TokHaar in preparation for her, but stopped working on it when they received news she was not coming. If she is on Freneskae, she might play a role in Fate of the Gods 2, perhaps she will fight Mah for Freneskae to not be destroyed?

Regardless, if anything is to be true about this unknown individual, it may be that her name is Vos. But Zaros knows something we don't, and we will have to wait for more information.

Please consider this theory, and post away! :D

That's a nice little way to release a lore teaser like that!

Good theory too :)

I agree with this theory, makes more sense than the sixth elder god being the one in the Stone of Jas (since it's dead and would have hatched into another Jas if it was still alive).

Somewhat unrelated note, but Azzanadra is probably not canonically a ghost in Desert Treasure, since he shows up looking like a normal Mahjarrat in ROTM, and in TTAS he says how he appeared in Desert Treasure was his true form.
You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

I do have a few more theories, but due to lack of info I'll post them here so as to not clutter the main posts.

Wild possibilities:
-Vos' egg was in the center of the elder halls on freneskae, perhaps meaning she is more powerful than the others

-Zaros knows more about Vos then he lets on, but chose not to tell us since it was kind of irrelevant when we were with seren

-if she is on freneskae, the presence of the mahjarrat, us, Zamorak, and Zaros might be enough to bring her physical form back shortly, and she will use her power to stop mah from destroying freneskae, but will have to become incorporeal again after the fight

-Vos laid the five eggs that created the current elder gods (way too unlikely just throwing it out there)

Create your own theories, no matter how strange!

Well, to be fair, loads of people found it before I did. I just passed on the info.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
