The zealot is a monk of Saradomin who has come to Morytania to investigate the strange Mort Ridge Mine in the South-west of the region. He is the quest start point for Haunted Mine. Players must say they follow Saradomin or Guthix, regardless of whether they do or not, in order to gain his trust.
However, even when the player does tell the zealot they follow Saradomin, he will not permit them to enter the Mine. Instead, the player must pickpocket him for the key to get in to begin the quest.
After the Haunted mine quest, players can return his key by saying that they have the key in their possession.
