Thurgo is one of the last living Imcando dwarves (along with Ramarno), and is the master of Smithing found outside the Asgarnian Ice Caves, south of Port Sarim (fairy ring A•I•Q). Players who reach level 99 Smithing can purchase the Smithing cape from him for 99,000 coins. Thurgo is involved in several quests: Knight's Sword, The Giant Dwarf, and Defender of Varrock.
In addition, after the Birthright of the Dwarves quest is completed, players can take a gilded dragon pickaxe to him to upgrade it into an Imcando pickaxe, provided that the player has all four parts (fragment 1, 2, 3, 4), as well as 1,000,000gp and a redberry pie.
Thurgo is also the discoverer of the skeletal wyverns. At one time, when mining blurite in the dungeon, he stumbled upon a hole leading into another cave. He went in and awoke the wyverns. Thinking them to be dragons, he pulled out an anti-dragon shield but was nastily burnt by frostbite and narrowly escaped the cave.
When first met, he is quite rude. However, when he is offered a redberry pie, he becomes friendlier towards the player.

- Thurgo's chathead was one of the few that were not updated in the dwarf chathead update on 19 January 2010.
- In Runescape Classic, Thurgo's examine info was: A short angry guy.
- Ironically, when first talking to Thurgo in The Knight's Sword quest, when you ask him if he's an Imcando dwarf, he angrily says "Maybe", however he openly tells anyone what he is when asked about the Smithing Cape.
