Hannibus chathead

Hannibus Eterra is the last of the Ilujanka that Zaros brought to Gielinor from his homeworld of Iaia. He came to Gielinor sometime during the Second Age. During this time, he rode the dragon Shakorexis. Every other Ilujanka brought to Gielinor was eventually killed off by either Zamorak or Zaros' followers, leaving Hannibus as the last one.

After the conflict ended, Enakhra started to hunt him down so she could deliver him as a present to Zamorak.[1] Although he was eventually captured, Enakhra was unable to bring him to Zamorak.[2] Eventually Hannibus was found by Robert the Strong and was brought to his library in Burthorpe for further study.[3] Robert searched for a way to reanimate Hannibus but was unable to before he died.

In the Sixth Age, Mr. Mordaut, seeking more information about the origin of dragons, asked an adventurer to find Robert's library and talk to Hannibus. The adventurer reanimated Hannibus and convinced him that he should go back to his homeworld. With the aid of Hannibus' former mount, the King Black Dragon, they track down Therragorn, a white dragon who has the ability to travel between worlds. Unfortunately, while attempting to fly back to Iaia, an unknown fireball shot Therragorn down, allowing Kerapac to rescue Hannibus and the adventurer. Kerapac told Hannibus that he may have the capability to fix the Ilujanka's fertility problem, but it may take many decades and is not a guarantee.[4] Kerapac promised, however, that Hannibus would be kept in stasis.[5]

While thinking this over, Therragorn returned, having flown to Iaia and brought back one of Hannibus's descendants, Sharrigan. Sharrigan tried to convince Hannibus to come back to Iaia where the Ilujanka have accepted their fate and he can die with his kind.[6] Hannibus asked for the adventurer's help in choosing, with their choice deciding whether he went with Kerapac or Sharrigan.
