Malignius Mortifer is an NPC just north of Port Sarim. He cannot be attacked, and has 4 apprentice wizards, one for each of the traditional elements: an air wizard, water wizard, earth wizard, and a fire wizard, all of which are level 13. Mortifer will often try to raise the dead, but almost always fails and creates fungus, though he never summons fungus thrice in a row. Occasionally, he will summon a skeleton mage or a ghost. Mortifer has no purpose for non-members. If you will annoy him, he will turn you into a mushroom. He is a part of the Swan Song and A Fairy Tale Part I quests.
- After the Swan Song quest, he will spare a player a brown apron and he will give bone seeds if the player has a pot with a pot lid.
- On another note, when he casts his spells, he speaks Latin, say such things as "Da mihi Potentia" or "give me power.", and "Veni, Cohortes Malefici" or "Come, evil troops".
- If you speak to him after you have completed the Abyss miniquest, he will let on that he is a follower of Zamorak and he will tell you about the burning of the Wizards' Tower. Given that he knows about what you did for the ZMI, he is probably a member of that organisation himself.
- Malignus is one of the few NPCs that can summon creatures, though if you speak to him about it, he will tell you that Necromancy has nothing to do with Summoning. He also mentions that Wizard Grayzag (summons Imps), Invrigar the Necromancer (at the Necromancer Tower),Sithik Ints (from the quest Zogre Flesh Eaters) and Melzar the Mad (in the Melzar's Maze, necromancy drove him mad) are, or were, necromancers.
Malignius Mortifer is Latin for Deadly Wickedness
