Commander Zilyana chathead

Commander Zilyana, Keeper of the Faith, is the leader of Saradomin's army in the God Wars Dungeon. She is an Icyene, an ancient race of winged beings, chosen by Saradomin to guard his hilt. Commander Zilyana uses a melee attack and a magic attack. She attacks with her multi-target magic attack when her sword glows with a bright blue aura and she raises it in the air. If the attack hits a player, a small wall of lightning will appear around the player. She attacks with melee when she simply slashes at the player with her sword. Her melee attack is not multi-target. Both her magic and melee attacks only work at close range.

In addition, both her magic and melee attacks have a max of around 2000 life points, but with only moderate accuracy. Her attacks are as fast as Darts and hit at the same time (she will only use magic in melee distance). She targets the player closest to her upon spawning, but switches to the player who has currently done the most damage to her.

Commander Zilyana is located in the back room of Saradomin's Encampment. Players must have 70 Agility to reach her. In addition, she has 3 bodyguards: Growler (magic), Bree (ranged) and Starlight (melee).

If blood spells are used on her consistently, the message "Commander Zilyana becomes more enraged by your spells and tries to channel them to increase her own power!" will appear in the chatbox, and her power will be boosted, granting her stronger attacks. This effect stacks (although there is a cap to it), so continued use of blood spells may prove fatal. A better alternative is Shadow Barrage, which reduces her damage, whilst hitting Zilyana and everything around her.

The World WakesEdit

Cres dies

Zilyana kills Cres, mistaking him for Guthix.

During the quest The World Wakes, Zilyana, along with K'ril Tsutsaroth and Kree'arra, discover that the player had found Guthix's home, and gather forces to break in to kill Guthix, ending his edicts and allowing their gods to return. Zilyana bides her time, while the Zamorakians and Bandosians attempt to brute force through the Guthixian defences. When they are repelled, Zilyana leads her soldiers into battle, attempting to break through Juna's barricade so they can reach and kill Guthix. In the ensuing battle, Zilyana sees the Guardians of Guthix Cres and kills him, believing that he is actually Guthix in disguise. She shows her disdain for the Zarosians when they appear after her failed assault.

When Sliske kills Guthix, Saradomin is the first to arrive at the scene. She later accompanies Saradomin when he leaves. If the player decided to simply kill Guthix, Juna will mention that Zilyana left a gift for them.

Missing, Presumed DeathEdit

Audio options icon
Zilyana argues with Ilfeen.

Zilyana makes another appearance in the quest Missing, Presumed Death. She is at the Empyrean Citadel, which was taken over by the Mahjarrat Sliske for his grand ascendacy into godhood. Zilyana is present here with Saradomin and appears once again as his chosen champion. As she did not receive a invitation, Zilyana is left outside the entrance with the other generals. Zilyana was seen arguing with the elf Ifleen about the slaughter of Saradominist monks by an elven archer. The player can either side with Zilyana or Ifleen, or alternatively, tell her the truth. Her obedience to Saradomin can be seen when the player chooses to tell her the truth and she declines Ifleen's offer for a truce, declaring, "It is not truth until Saradomin decrees it so!"

After the quest, Zilyana leaves the citadel when Sliske lets the dragonkin Strisath loose.

Sliske's EndgameEdit

She has a small role in Sliske's Endgame. Prior to the release of the quest, she appeared at the White Knights' Castle looking at the eclipse, though she could not be talked to.

QuotesEdit

All praise Saradomin!

When in battle, the Commander shouts several battle cries while fighting the players that dare to venture into her domain. She is voiced by Mod Ana.

  • Death to the enemies of the light!
  • Slay the evil ones!
  • Saradomin lend me strength!
  • By the power of Saradomin!
  • May Saradomin be my sword!
  • Good will always triumph!
  • Forward! Our allies are with us!
  • Saradomin is with us!
  • In the name of Saradomin!

TriviaEdit

Zilyana concept art

Concept art of Commander Zilyana.

Zilyana concept art2

Older concept art of Zilyana.

  • In the Saradomin Strikes Campaign on Armies of Gielinor, it is revealed that at some point during the God Wars, Zilyana was captured by Zamorak, but then escaped.
  • Commander Zilyana received several extra buffs on the release of the Triskelion Treasures update. If she is constantly attacked by blood spells, she will become "enraged". Along with the same update, her magical strength was drastically increased, changed her weakness from Water spells to nothing, and had an increased magical defence.
  • Zilyana has her own custom special attacks, made by Mod Chris L, because she was the only original God Wars boss not to be fought during The World Wakes. 
Zilyana wounded
  • Commander Zilyana features in a flashback during the Ritual of the Mahjarrat quest. She is seen facing K'ril Tsutsaroth in battle. As they battle, K'ril gets the upper hand and blasts Zilyana away, critically injuring her. He takes a final look at her body and departs. Saradomin himself comes to rescue her and takes her to the Fist of Guthix arena, where the Stone of Jas lies, and heals her. She also received a graphical update with the release of this quest.
  • Zilyana is one of two icyenes shown in-game to have two sets of wings; one on her back near her shoulder-blades and another on her lower back near her lumbar. The other is Efaritay.
