General Viggora was once a powerful and vicious human warrior of the Second Age. He was one of the few Zarosian generals, and the only of them that was a human. He built the Slayer Tower, a massive and dark tower of Morytania that holds many horrific beasts that require a special technique in order to be slain. Despite being a Zarosian general during the Second Age, he was never truly loyal to Zaros, he was a follower of Zamorak, who was another Zarosian general at that time. He assaulted Zaros' castle with Zamorak, who was trying to become a god by overcoming Zaros. He watched Zamorak surprisingly defeating the Empty Lord and almost becoming a god after that. However, when Zaros fell, he cursed all those who played a role in Zamorak's plot, and, since Viggora was human and had a much shorter lifespan than the others, the curse was stronger on him, turning him into an invisible ghost for the rest of eternity. Since the other zamorakians were alive much longer and had longer lifespans still, the curse of Zaros had a much less harmful effect on them and it is unknown what these effects even were. Viggora can be found in three locations: the Slayer Tower, Rogues' Castle and Edgeville Dungeon.
Viggora was, for much of his early life, a warrior, and claims that "I had little interest in gods and their magicks, and certainly didn't respect them." But, all the same, found himself involved with the forces of Zaros, a powerful deity who had come to much power during the Second Age, known as the Age of Gods. Viggora was a close companion of Zamorak, one of the most powerful Mahjarrat and a Zarosian general at that time, and that made him become one of Zamorak's most worthy followers for loyalty to him and his great might on the battlefield.
At the time of Zamorak's betrayal, the majority of his followers, or at least his closest warriors, were either Mahjarrat, Vampyres, Demons and Dragon Riders. Viggora remembers with pride that he was considered equal to the other magical races that made up the bulk of the army, and says "I remember Lucien, who struggled to lift a blade.", and believes that in some ways he was even more powerful than them.
Involvement in the BetrayalEdit
Once the Staff of Armadyl had passed into the possession of Zamorak, through a series of events involving the other cursed ghosts (Valdez, Rennard, Kharrim, Lennissa and Dhalak), Zamorak and his most trusted generals (namely Hazeel, Viggora, Drakan, Thammaron, and Zemouregal) went forward to Zaros' castle, under the pretense that they were there to discuss battle plans, and there they engaged Zaros in battle. Viggora and the others kept his legion of bodyguards, for whom they were more than a match, at bay while Zamorak flanked Zaros and plunged the Staff of Armadyl into his back. This enraged and weakened Zaros, but did not kill him, and he retaliated, managing to impale Zamorak upon the Staff along with himself. After that, some of Zaros' power was transferred to Zamorak, almost turning him into a god. After that, Zamorak seemed to have became much more real, and Zaros slowly faded away, cursing all that played a role in the Betrayal, including Viggora, and Zamorak eventually attained Godhood by using the stone of jas, which later led to the God Wars and the Third Age.
Viggora can be found in the following locations:
- Rogues' Castle, on the 1st floor[. ]
- Slayer Tower, on the 1st floor[ in the South-East corner. ]
- Edgeville Dungeon, in the Wilderness section, near the earth warriors.
- Viggora building the Slayer Tower was first mentioned during The Curse of Zaros, but only gained significance when it was reworked in 2013.
