During year 169 of the Fifth Age, the then crowned Prince Ali was kidnapped by a criminal group known as The Skulls while touring the neighbouring village of Lumbridge. After being led to Draynor Village by the gang members, he was then handed over to Lady Keli, the commissioner for the kidnapping. This was done in order to use Ali as a form of ransom to obtain the Kharid-ib diamond, a large and powerful gemstone that is of significant importance to the history of Al Kharid.
^Khnum, "Stolen Hearts", RuneScape. "Fine! There's a staging area directly south of here, on Draynor's coast. My men were to lead them there – there's a boat docked. Once this Lady Keli had the prince safely aboard, we were getting paid and cutting ties."
^Leela, "Stolen Hearts", RuneScape. "Fine! I will trust you... for now. But only because I need information too. Do not think this makes us friends. But you are too late to STOP the kidnapping – the prince went missing while he was touring Lumbridge. I have followed the trail to Draynor."
