Verak Lith, also called Flametongue, is the second boss in the second elite dungeon, Dragonkin Laboratory. He was created sometime after the King Black Dragon, and is significantly stronger than his famed predecessor.

According to the dragonkin research, Verak Lith was a dragon being developed to deal with the Stone of Jas' curse. It was a full fledged project and according to a Dactyl researcher, if provoked, Verak would act as if the curse was affecting it. Kerapac eventually insisted to have Verak reproduce, which was not its' primary role and was eventually deemed a failure as its offspring burned themselves out with their "unceasing rage and over-advanced flame-sacs".

During the end of the God Wars Verak Lith, then called Flametongue, caused destruction in the already battle-ravaged Wilderness. Guthix sent some of his dwarven forces to drive the terrible monster from the land. The mission was a success, as Flametongue was defeated and withdrew, but evidently survived and is imprisoned in the Dragonkin Laboratory to the present day.

Trivia

  • His name is dragonkin language for King/Emperor Superior.
  • The nickname Flametongue was first used by a King Black Dragon faced by Guthix' army on the "King of the Hill" level of the Guthix Awakens campaign in the RuneScape-based strategy game Armies of Gielinor. In the level, Flametongue was in command of red dragons and TzHaar-Ket followers called "Flame Keepers".
  • Despite being a black dragon, he drops royal dragonhide.
  • Prior to the update on 28 August 2018, Verak Lith's energy attack could be healed off of with Resonance. The change was implemented due to the fact that attempting to Resonance a soft typeless hit would negate the damage, but not heal the player.
