Lord Francis Kurt Handelmort is the the wealthiest man in Ardougne and plays a background role in the Tribal Totem quest.
Although unseen in-game, his wealth is very much evident as seen from his booby-trapped two-story mansion coupled with aggresive guard dogs, as well as a gardener in his service.
- In Runescape Classic, Lord Handelmort's middle name was Brad, but it was changed to Kurt in Runescape 2.
- His name may be a reference to Lord Voldemort, the antagonist in the Harry Potter series.
- His name may be a reference to Kurtz, the antagonist in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, the antagonist interfering with the original jungle inhabitants.
