Mayor Eustace Hobb is the current mayor of Witchaven. He serves as the antagonist for the quests Slug Menace and Salt in the Wound although not voluntarily. He can be found in his house before the completion of The Slug Menace and after Salt in the Wound.


During The Slug Menace, players find out he is possessed by a sea slug and in league with Mother Mallum. He helped release Mother Mallum by trying to open up a Saradomin shrine, suspiciously purchasing things that would go unneeded by the town. If players try to go through the imposing doors during the battle with the Slug Prince, he will push you back. He disappears after the quest, along with Brother Maledict and Col. O'Niall.

During Salt in the Wound, he is found with Mother Mallum in the Slug Citadel. After a last minute futile attempt from him to block Eva from freeing the player and killing Mallum, she knocks him out. He is liberated from slug control after Mother Mallum is killed, and humorously blames his loss of memory on consuming too much Karamjan rum.


  • Mayor Hobb is currently the only known human victim of the sea slugs' control who achieved metamorphosis into a more aquatic creature, likely due to his long time possessed. This metamorphosis is apparently temporary, as he returns to his human form after he is freed.
  • His beard's style changes after he is possessed.
