Draul Leptoc was a non-player character found in his mansion in Varrock. He is the father of Juliet. He was slightly involved in Romeo & Juliet and Defender of Varrock until his removal. He does however play a role in the Return to Canifis novel, so it presumed he still exists within the canonicity of the game, which would explain why he still appears in the Varrock Census of 160.
Throughout the quest of Romeo & Juliet, speaking to him resulted some aggressive responses. Also, if the player was carrying a cadava potion with them, he demanded to know what is they were holding. The player would then make an excuse saying that he/she is sick, and that taking it can put them to sleep. Being the aggressive man he is, he told the player that they have to pay rent if they are caught sleeping in his house.
When he finds Juliet lying on the floor, motionless, he presumed she was dead, and laments that he should not have been too hard on her. After the quest, he realised he was deceived by the player.
Events in Return to Canifis Edit
He plays a minor role during the course of the novel. Although he himself does not make an appearance, he grants the use of his mansion, and the large burial chamber beneath it, to the mysterious Society of Owls in order to help cover up the recent Wyrd attacks. Any victims of the creature were stored within the tomb in attempt to prevent the spread of the Wyrd's poison, which was still transferable to living people through the touching of a victim's black scars, and any witnesses were themselves held captive within the mansion to prevent panic. During this time, no mention is made of Draul's daughter, Juliet.
- His name is an anagram of Lord Capulet, the father of Juliet in the Shakespearian tragedy 'Romeo and Juliet'.
- Though he no longer exists in the game; his name is included in the Library's Varrock Census from the year 160.
