Hector Vivian is a dark wizard responsible for sinking Tutorial Island. He was once a skilled hydromancer. While experimenting, he accidentally opened a portal that placed him on Tutorial Island, and he was forbidden from leaving until he had completed the tutorial. This greatly frustrated him, as he believed the tasks to be beneath him, so he sank the island and cursed the inhabitants to become crassians in order to punish them, though the banker died and the combat instructor Vannaka had left the island shortly beforehand. As he couldn't get to Vannaka, the curse was incomplete. The curse itself could only be broken by the tutorial being completed.
When an adventurer nearly completed the tutorial, he appeared and tried to attack them, having captured Vannaka. He was stopped at the last moment by Wizard Myrtle, and the pair duelled, with Hector eventually being overpowered. Terrova managed to remove the curse from Vannaka before it took hold and deflected part of it back onto Hector, cursing him to remain trapped on the sunken island.

- ^ Vannaka, "Beneath Cursed Tides", RuneScape. "It happened sometime after I left the island to become a slayer master."
- ^ a b Hector Vivian, "Beneath Cursed Tides", RuneScape. "Pfff, it matters not. I've caught you at the last moment, your plans to break the curse are foiled! And you've brought Vannaka right to me! The final piece of the puzzle. The one who got away... Finally I can transform him, the curse will be complete!"
