V------ (named because of his many names) was a relatively prominent Fremennik seer of the late Fourth and early Fifth Ages. V------ was well known at the time, and several modern researchers, such as the mage Movario once speculated that he may have been responsible for discovering the Stone of Jas.
According to the Moonclan Manual (sold by Baba Yaga), V------ was a seeker of the Stone of Jas, but whether he actually found it or not is left unclear. However, it is hinted that, at least while close to the previous location of the Stone of Jas, he first discovered magically altered rocks that over time became source of the form of magic that the Moon Clan use today. Since one of the 'stones' which V------ found eventually became the Astral Altar, it is possible that not only Runes but also Runecrafting altars stem from the Stone's power.
During While Guthix Sleeps, players see a cutscene of V------, at this point quite short and stumpy looking, touching the Stone of Jas and suddenly growing to normal human height. This discovery led to the separation of the Fremennik and the Moon Clan.
Since the cutscene shows V------ growing to normal human height, and V------'s discovery led to the split from the Fremennik, it is unknown how the rest of the human race grew to these dimensions, as the modern Moon Clan seem to be of the same height as the other human civilizations. It is possible that when the other civilizations discovered magic for themselves, they too began to look like the modern humans today. Also, at least some humans (the ones depicted during Meeting History) arrived directly from another plane already having normal height.
It is unknown how, or even if he died. Following The Ritual of the Mahjarrat one might speculate that he was killed by the Dragonkin, much like Lucien was. However, as the Dragonkin did not kill the player, who touched the stone briefly at the end of While Guthix Sleeps, he may not have been attacked by them.
His name differs from player to player. Below is a list of known names:
Concept art has been released in which he is referred to as a "Neanderthal".
