Jonty is a boy who lives in Varrock. He has a little sister and his best friend is Kherian. They both enjoy exploring the city, but Jonty prefers to stay out of trouble and close to home, unlike Kherian. He is also friendly with Balek, the son of the bartender at the Blue Moon Inn.
Near Christmas one year, Jonty, along with Kherian and Balek, met the heroes Ariane, Ozan and the mysterious Raptor, Kherian's hero, while they were at the Blue Moon Inn. Kherian, desperate to attract the attention of his hero, threw a snowball, striking the warrior. The Raptor demanded an explanation and Kherian repeated the phrase they had overheard the Raptor saying, much to the warrior's satisfaction.
