The Magic instructor, whose real name is Terrova, was the last instructor new players met on Tutorial Island. He was the Wizard of Tutorial Island and used to be in his house on the south side of the island. He taught players about Magic and how to cast spells, and provided them with 5 air runes and 5 mind runes. Terrova was capable of deactivating the protective spells any time he desires for a vast number of players on Tutorial Island, and was once able to teleport them there himself; he bore a great supply of air and mind runes as well. There was a barrel of unfinished staves and several dragon's heads in his house, an indication of his high magical prowess. Additionally, Terrova claimed he was a friend of the Lumbridge Guide, Phileas, and has mastered all of magic itself, putting him at Level 99 or even higher.
The Magic instructor used to be found in the building at the end of the dirt road on Tutorial Island. He had a large cage with chickens in it for players to train with the runes he gave to them (you could only use ranged or magic attacks on the chickens because the cage was only made of walls and a metal fence, which didn't have a gate).
|“|| Good day, Evil Dave - long time, no see.
Three years ago, I employed a scruffy young man to look after my three dairy cows [OF TOTAL DOMINATION - E.D.]: Dolly, Emmylou and Linda. The young man would teach adventurers about milking cows and churning, and I would give him a small wage. I used to call him ‘servant’ or ‘little servant’.
Well, one night I heard a ruckus and the dastardly young man had herded my trio of cows onto a raft of plain logs and teaching manuals, making a course for the mainland. I tried to Wind Strike him, but it did no damage.
Now, here comes my theory! The new tutorial has a White Knight named Sir Vant, which is so very similar to ‘servant'! In it, Sir Vant fights a dragon with three heads, which, in the right light, could be an elaborately disguised triad of cattle! I say this man is a heinous fraud and his so-called three-headed dragon is nothing more than three glued-together bovines [OF MASS DESTRUCTION - E.D.].
By the way, if your fans ever need someone to teach them how to cook, fight or run, tell them to come see me.
- At some point Terrova's staff was changed. He no longer carries an air staff but instead has an unknown staff with a hoop on the end.
- His hat resembled a blue version of the usually black Dagon'hai hat that the Dagon'hai wear.
- His staff was similar to the one carried by the monkey downstairs during the Jungle Demon fight in Monkey Madness.
- You could drop the 5 air and mind runes he gave you and you could ask him for more and more runes. When going to Lumbridge, the runes would no longer appear.
