The Imcando Dwarves were amongst the races created by Guthix during the First Age. The Imcando existed during the God Wars, the devastation of which lead to their refusal of Zemouregal's, a Mahjarrat, that sought one of their most powerful artefacts, the Shield of Arrav. The Shield of Arrav was an object of uncomprehendable power, which had arrived in Gielinor from another world.
Arrav of AvarrockaEdit
Arrav, after meeting Zemouregal in the Land of Dreams, was sent by his village's elders to find the mythical Shield of Arrav, in the possession of the Imcando dwarves. After wandering through what would later become Asgarnia, Arrav settled at the foot of a mountain, possibly Ice Mountain where he was greeted by several Imcando. Despite their refusals of knowing the Shield, Arrav stayed with them, hoping to gain their trust. After spending many days with the Imcando and learning their arts of mining and smithing he was refused the Shield.
Some time later, Arrav was given the shield, which he used to defend Avarrocka (now Varrock) from an army of undead, led by Zemouregal. Amongst those protecting the city were the Imcando, who fought as soldiers and dug trenches. Arrav was killed in the battle, but the Imcando remained friends of Varrock.
The White Knights of Falador had given the Imcando Dwarves many fire and nature runes, allowing them to cast the Superheat Item spell. The Fremennik invaders, who sought to end the use of the newly discovered runestones, attacked the Imcando in their home on Ice Mountain.
Few Imcando escaped the assault. Only Thurgo willingly shows himself today, although he has hinted there are other survivors hidden somewhere.
Up to their destruction the Imcando tribe of Dwarves were particularly skilled in Smithing weaponry, and possibly Mining. As mentioned above the sword of Sir Vyvin, passed down through five generations, was created by the Imcando. For many hundreds of years they were the worlds most renowned, and best, smiths. (Therefore, it is no surprise that Thurgo, one of the last known remaining Imcando Dwarves, has the Smithing cape.) The techniques used by the Imcando were secret, passed down from generation to generation, and any devices created by the Imcando are very hard to replicate. The Imcando are among the few races to utilise Blurite, found in the Blurite caves.
