Dr. Randulf Harlow is a retired vampyre slayer in the Blue Moon Inn at Varrock. If a player has started Vampyre Slayer, they must buy him a beer in order to convince him to teach them how to kill Count Draynor. Dr. Harlow will then give players a stake and a stake hammer. After completing the quest, Dr. Harlow will go back to what he was saying before ("Buy me a beer pleash").

His zombie version also features in Dimension of Disaster: Demon Slayer where he is possessed by the Spirit of the Body. He must be fed a sobriety potion in a beer glass to get the spirit out.


  • Dr. Harlow used to be located along with Johnathon in the Jolly Boar Inn, north-east of Varrock. This was changed to prevent new players from accidentally wandering into the Wilderness.
  • Dr. Harlow received a makeover on 15 December 2009.
  • Before his graphical makeover, he was one of the few NPCs to wear glasses. This is no longer the case.
  • His new look resembles Van Helsing, the protagonist and vampire hunter from Bram Stoker's Dracula. It is also likely that he was based off the character originally.
  • He could also be based on psychologist Harry Harlow, who was known to be an alcoholic.
  • At the mention of "How to kill a vampyre" Dr. Harlow resumes a normal, sober state. His speech isn't slurred, and it seems the only thing that could snap him out of his inebriated state.
