Father Aereck is a Saradominist priest who maintains the more than two hundred and thirty-year-old Church of Lumbridge called the Lumbridge Chapel. Father Aereck is the person players must speak with to start The Restless Ghost quest. He also plays a role in The Lost Tribe quest as one of the citizens of Lumbridge which you should speak to about the strange goings-on beneath Lumbridge Castle. He will also upgrade a player's gravestone if they have completed The Restless Ghost quest. All of the proceeds from purchasing gravestones goes to Varrockian Guards' Widows & Orphans Fund. From his younger days, Father Aereck is friends with another priest named Father Uhrney, who currently resides in Lumbridge Swamp as a hermit. According to Uhrney, Aereck always "gets himself into lots of problems", such as the instance when he "kept on getting stuck up bell ropes" when the two were trainee priests. A player can bring him a fired clay ring to transform into a ring of devotion. Aereck was also present at Deathcon II, where he, along with Dardar the dwarf, was advertising gravestones. He commented on the citadel frightening him.
- The Player seems to acknowledge that RuneScape is actually a computer game when talking to Father Aereck. However, this is not the case when he/she speaks with this bartender on the matter. In this case, the player takes on the "doubtful" role instead.
- In the Player Owned Port, the player can tell Meg that Father Aereck is a Mahjarrat.
