|Quest NPC?||Swept Away|
|Examine||An underpaid delivery ghoul.|
Gus is a ghoul that has been hired by Hetty, an old witch in Rimmington, to deliver some goods to her. According to Hetty, he has unusually high mental capacities for a ghoul, and he works for a company called Numinous Witchery Supplies Ltd. He is a non-player character for the quest Swept Away, which was released along with the 2008 Hallowe'en event as a free quest but carried on as a members' quest after the event finished. On 24 June 2010 the quest became permanently available to free players.
He is found in Hetty the Witch's basement, puzzling over what to do. During the quest, Gus explains that he mixed up the labels for the crates in the basement, and he asks the player to help him sort out the labels: Toad label, Newt label, and Newts and toads label. When the players have put them in the correct order, they can move on to the next enchantment for the Broomstick, and Gus is not needed again.
- Gus is currently the only ghoul in RuneScape who is named. He is one of two ghouls who speak to the player (the Ghoul Champion being the other).
- 'Gus' is a reference to P.G. Wodehouse's series of stories about Jeeves and Wooster, where a character called 'Gussie' is a newt fanatic.
