Guildmaster Pegasus during the The Battle of Lumbridge
37th of Ire of Phyrrys, Year 94 of the 5th Age
Guildmaster of the Wizard's Guild
Guildmaster Pegasus, often referred to lovingly as Pegasus The Great by historians, opponents, and fans, as well as The Phoenix Guardian by the desert Phoenix, is a legendary and very powerful magician of Saradomin and former adventurer, currently residing at the Wizards' Tower. Although he currently claims to be a retired adventurer, Pegasus used to be a famous hero in his youth, saving countless lives and fighting back the dark forces of Gielinor. He is the current Guildmaster of the Wizard's Guild, having succeeded Wizard Distentor.
A summary of some of his travels, feats and other several significant events in his life are detailed in Pegasus' Story, his autobiography. He is one of the most elderly members of the The Order of St. Rimmington's Sarothic Church, and is a good friend of Dion Magnan. Having survived his battle against the Dragonkin, Pegasus now lies in the Wizards' Tower, instructing incoming wizards on the ways of magical arts. Pegasus is role-played by Orange Book.
This character has received a 21 on the Mary Sue Test.
Pegasus' Theme Songs
In his youth, Pegasus was a tall, broad shouldered man of above average height, standing at a full 6 feet 4 inches in height, weighing in at a gruesome 205 pounds. As a Lumbridge native, he followed the common hair trend of long tied back hair, allowing a twin set of lengthy bangs fall over his forehead. His daily attire consisted of a set of light blue Saradomin robes, which he acquired from Archmage Sedidor during his schooling at the Wizards' Tower. Along with the Saradomin robes, he wore a golden holy-symbol around his neck, displaying his allegiance and loyalty to the god of good, Saradomin. He also carried along a powerful Saradomin staff, quite similar to that of Dionysius', to go along with his Sardomin cape, both of which, he obtained from his training at the Mage Arena.
Now years past his prime, Pegasus still dons his signature Saradomin robes, as well as lugging around his Saradomin Staff. His once prized jet-black hair has since faded in colour, now a somewhat greyish in appearance. His beard has also grown in size, now ending just before his chest.
Early LifePegasus was born to a loving couple of middle class parents, in Misthalin, Lumbridge. As a child, Pegasus attended the Lumbridge Chapel frequently alongside his parents, and was mentored by Father Aereck himself, in all things Saradomin. He spent much of his time fishing crayfish from behind the Lumbridge Chapel, and killing giant rats, which scared him at first, in the Lumbridge swamps. He sold whatever crayfish he had caught to Hank, who ran the town's only fishing shop. Pegasus was said to have unlimited potential while only the age of 8, by Explorer Jack, a professional explorer and taskmaster.
At some point in his child hood, Pegasus was given a Amulet of Ghostspeak, by the hermit of Lumbridge Swamp, Father Urhney. Father Urhney had given the spare Amulet to Pegasus to shut him up, after he requested to challenge him in a copper mining contest several times. The Amulet would be kept as Pegasus' good luck charm over the course of the next few decades, until it finally came of use to him on his journey to Morytania.
Adventure in Dorgesh-Kaan
At the mere age of 10, Pegasus' curiosity drew him toward the forbidden Lumbridge Swamp Caves. A candle seller told Pegasus he would refuse to let a "little kid" go in there alone, unless he had purchased a candle from him for 1000 gold coins. Pegasus called him cheap, and said he would never pay even 1 gold coin to his "cheap dumbass." The seller provided an alternative solution, telling Pegasus that he would allow him into the cave, if he had brought him a new, shiny steel dagger to go along with his old iron dagger. Pegasus agreed to this, and got to work, mining ore along the northwestern corner of the swamp, and refining the ore using the furnace found in Lumbridge. After some time, Pegasus returned with the steel dagger, and in return, received a tiny, unlit wax candle.
Pegasus traveled through the Lumbridge Swamp Caves holding a lit candle in one hand, and a steel sword which was given to him as a birthday present by his parents. A small bag was clipped to his tool belt to allow inventory space for any items of interest.
Along the way, Pegasus encountered several types of frogs. Regular sized frogs, big frogs, and even giant frogs. The frogs for whatever reason, would not seem to leave him alone, always chasing after him in small squads. Pegasus endured the large beatings to some degree, hard for him to fight back whilst holding a lit candle. He began to use the candle to burn the frogs slightly, causing them to retreat momentarily, until the candle light was extinguished in a large blast that severely wounded Pegasus. Injured, Pegasus dropped his candle, grasped his sword tightly, and ran for his life, splitting through a small opening in the wall.
An injured Pegasus arrived in the Dorgesh-Kaan Mines unintentionally, lying on the floor unconscious, only to be barraged by a group of cave bugs, looking for an afternoon snack. He was, however, saved by a cave goblin miner by the name of Mistag, who escorted him through the mines into Dorgesh-Kaan.
The cave goblins took a quick liking to Pegasus, probably because he was so naive and innocent. They enhanced Pegasus' mining capabilities, as well as making him more agile through the use of their agility course.
Pegasus took a liking to their unique food, and studied the cave goblins advanced magicks during his small tenure in Dorgesh-Kaan. When it was time for him to go, the cave goblins rewarded him with a Dorgeshuun c'bow as a sign of appreciation. Pegasus promised to keep their presence a secret, and returned home to Lumbridge after he was escorted through the mines by Mistag.
|“||Hmmm..I could see you taking my place even, in the near future, Pegasus. Work hard, my son... For that is how greatness is achieved.||”|
–Archmage Sedridor to a young Pegasus during his training
At the age of 10, Pegasus was shipped off by his parents to the Wizards' Tower, where he would remain for the next 15 years of his life. At first, Pegasus expressed much sorrow in having to leave his parents, as well as his abundant lifestyle. None the less, the youthful Pegasus overcame any form of depression he may have experienced, working hard under the watchful eye of Archmage Sedridor.
Pegasus' arrival to the Wizards' Tower couldn't have come at a better time, as it had only been 25 years removed from the demise of the first Wizards' tower, which had been burnt to the ground in the Year of 70 in the 5th Age. Pegasus excelled as a student while at the Wizards' Tower, often ranking above the rest of his peers. Magical arts seemed to come naturally to him, as he shined day after day after day, eventually becoming Sedridor's favorite student, as well as his right hand man. His potential was seen not only by his instructors, but also by the rest of his peers, who envied his prodic innocence. Acquiring so much power at a young age made Pegasus highly arrogant.
Throughout the years, Pegasus' relationship with Archmage Sedridor continued to grow. Eventually, it got to the point where Sedridor referred to Pegasus as his son. On his 20th birthday, Pegasus was given a fine set of Saradomin robes by Sedridor, who had had them made especially for this occasion. Pegasus thanked his master for them dearly, which would later come to be known as his trademark outfit.
During his schooling at the Second Wizards' Tower, Pegasus was taught how to craft runes of his own by Wizard Borann. This would become a handy tool later on in the future, as magic became Pegasus' most useful ways in combat.
Sometime during his schooling, Pegasus met with former Archmage Perien the Blue, who rewarded him with a handy addition of The Harmony of Runes. Pegasus also later met with Wizard Distentor, who taught him how to teleport directly to the Rune Essence mine.
Befriending the Phoenix
|“||You.. I can't thank you enough for your help. You are indeed, a friend of the Phoenix.. no more than that... you are the Phoenix Guardian.||”|
–The Desert Phoenix, in response to Pegasus' help
Returning home to visit his parents in the Year of 117 of the 5th Age, Pegasus overheard a conversation between two H.A.M members, who he stopped from stealing scrolls from the Lumbridge Sage's stall. He demanded to know their intentions behind the thievery, only to be denied. He let the members go, following them back into their hideout, northeast of the Lumbridge furnace and west of the Lumbridge cow field.
It took Pegasus a few tries to pick the lock on the trap door, but he managed to slide down without too much trouble, and managed to stay undetected for the most part. Pegasus was found by a single H.A.M guard, who he easily defeated and hid in a pile of hay, taking and donning his robes in the process.
Johanhus Ulsbrecht, leader of the H.A.M organization, designed a members only meeting in the hideout's courtyard. He gave a lengthy speech explaining the groups intentions of traveling deep into the Kharidian desert to terminate the rare Desert Phoenix.
Pegasus had never heard of such a creature, but found it absurd that fellow Saradominists would want to murder something that had done absolutely nothing to them. Johanhus Ulsbrecht sent out a special squad of H.A.M. members toward Al Kharid to begin the mission. Pegasus would follow behind them closely to learn more about the Phoenix.
When the group arrived before the Phoenix, they attacked it blindly, hoping to catch it off guard. Pegasus stepped quickly toward the flaming bird's defense, easily defeating the small group of H.A.M. members. The Desert Phoenix thanked Pegasus for his help, but questioned his actions, to which Pegasus replied that he had "seen your kind before on the island of Entrana. You're like family."
The Phoenix explained that it had indeed been aware of the H.A.M's presence, and had purposely traveled outward to draw their attention away from the Phoenix's lair, home to several Phoenix eggs. He also warned Pegasus, that since they had failed to kill her, they would surely be back again, this time with more members.
Pegasus refused to leave the Phoenix's side. The H.A.M members returned with a replenished supply of weapons. Pegasus engaged the group alone, throwing himself of the Phoenix during the battle to ensure it's safety. Pegasus eventually emerged victorious, fighting off countless H.A.M members alone, and told them to never again return. The Phoenix once again thanked Pegasus, and revealed the hidden location of the Phoenix Lair to him. He also gave him permission to take an egg with him, and raise a Phoenix as if it were his own. Pegasus entered the Phoenix Lair later that evening, to select an egg for himself. As his hands began to wrap around an egg, it hatched immediately, introducing him to his new found teammate.
Pegasus Versus Hazarath
|“||Hey! That guy tricked me!||”|
–Pegasus, after freeing the Mahjarrat known as Hazarath
During his time spent in Camelot, Pegasus came upon an awkward looking man at the Forester's Arms Pub, a local bar in Seer's Village. The man, who Pegasus came to know as Arthur, promised to pay Pegasus a full reward of 500 gold coins if he aided him in his search for his brother. Oddly enough, Arthur happened to know the exact location of his brother, but needed someone as powerful as Pegasus to assist him, as his brother had been stuck in an ice cube for the past decade, while they were playing "hide and seek." Arthur provided Pegasus with a detailed map, with his brother's location circled in red marker.
Pegasus traveled by foot, making stops at Sinclair Mansion and Rellekka along the way. He endured the cold snowstorms of Trollweiss Mountain, until finally, he had spotted a humanoid figure, held captive in a large 20 by 20 ice cube. The human looked a bit odd to Pegasus, but his job was to free this man, not judge his appearance.
Pegasus attempted to shatter the ice using his staff, only to finally realize he was making no progress after a full 10 minutes of swinging. He charged up a fire spell using the limited supply of runes he lugged around, placing his staff beside the ice cube to melt it.
Eventually the ice cube melted, freeing Arthur's brother. The man was, to put into simpler terms, a rather large man. He stood at a full height of 8 feet, dressed in a pair of ancient robes. His face was pale white, resembling that of skeleton. The figure called out in enlightenment upon being free, stating "At long last, Hazarath has returned!". He thanked Pegasus for his efforts in freeing him with a powerful kick to the gut, explaining his intentions of destroying the city of Pollniveach, a merchant filled city deep in the Kharidian desert.
A shameful Pegasus returned to Seer's Village, only to realize Arthur had fled town the day his brother had been freed. Pegasus spoke to several local citizens to gain knowledge of Arthur's current location, although none of them had ever known anybody by the name of Arthur. Pegasus eventually spoke to an elder seer, known as Hashirama, explaining what had happened to him in the past few days. Hashirama told Pegasus of the Mahjarrat, warlike, very powerful beings. He told Pegasus to check the library in Sinclair Mansion, assuming they would have a book containing further knowledge of their kind.
Pegasus traveled to the Sinclair Mansion, north of Camelot, only to be denied access into the Mansion. Pegasus explained that the world may be in trouble to the guard if he did not let him inside, to no avail, as he was still denied access into the mansion. Rejected for the second consecutive time, Pegasus quickly thought of a solution. He traveled back to the Forester's Arms Pub, coming into acquaintance with an off duty guard, who was on his lunch break. Pegasus asked if he could speak with him privately outside, leading him into an alley and casting a stun spell to paralyze the man, taking his armor in the process. Dressed as a Sinclarian guard, Pegasus snuck into the mansion, and found a book about the Mahjarrat in the upstairs library.
The book was written by a man known as Norm, a druid residing in Taverly. It explained that Mahjarrat required a ritual every so often in order to retain their gruesome power, and gave detailed illustrations of their forms. Pegasus concluded that the figure he had seen before was indeed, a pre-ritual Mahjarrat. The book, however, failed to contain any knowledge on stopping such creatures, but did however, leave the author's address on the back side.
Pegasus traveled to Taverly in search for Norm, finding him with the help of other nearby druids. Norm scolded Pegasus for being so stupid, after Pegasus had told him of his tragedy. Norm explained that Pegasus may be able to confront the Mahjarrat one on one, since he was not at full power. He traveled alongside Pegasus deep into the Kharidian desert, luring the Mahjarrat using some sort of weird magical orb.
The mahjarrat came face to face with the duo, stating he had waited a long time to "run my hands through the blood of a member of the Crux Equal." Norm admitted he was far too old to be of any use in this fight, and instructed Pegasus to fight him alone. Afraid at first, Pegasus seemed to regain his confidence in the middle of the fight, defeating the weakened Mahjarrat after several moments of brutal fighting. Pegasus spared the Mahjarrat after it had begged for mercy, and promised to never disturb the desert ever again. However, Norm saw through the Mahjarrat's lies, and commanded Pegasus to finish him off. Pegasus ran his staff through the Mahjarrat's neck, ending his life.
Pegasus Versus Delzar
|“||As much as I hate to admit, I can't beat him alone.. I need your help.||”|
–Pegasus to the Zarosian Mahjarrat, Uroopi
Word had spread through out all of Gielinor about Pegasus' adventures and victories. He had already became a respected figure in society, gaining the trust of several regions.
While Pegasus was happily fishing shark in Catherby, a lone Terrorbird arrived beside him, holding a scroll between it's beak. Pegasus took the scroll, which happened to be a message from King Narnode Shareen, the king of the Tree Gnome Stronghold. It was an urgent message requiring his help, and so, Pegasus set off, on a momentary expedition toward the Tree Gnome Stronghold.
Once he arrived at the Stronghold, Pegasus met with King Narnode Shareen, who had a worried expression drawn across his face. He explained his reasoning behind the message. Many, many years ago, a powerful demon by the name of Delzar, had tried to take over the Kadarian region. The demon was extremely powerful, god like in power, capable of causing a multitude of issues for not just the Gnomes, but all other races home to Gielinor. Fortunately, at the time, a powerful adventurer had also existed, who with the help of the void knights, managed to somehow seal the demon inside of a lamp. This seal was bound to break eventually, and grew weaker and weaker as the years progressed. The lamp finally began to crack, and the demon was expected to break free at any time. That was why Pegasus had been called, in case the demon broke loose before they were able to gather enough mages who could seal the demon once again.
Pegasus was to speak with the elderly tree south of the Tree Gnome Stronghold, in order to be teleported to secret location where the lamp had been placed. Pegasus spoke with the tree, and was transported to a dark room, where many gnomes had gathered, circled around an obsidian altar which held the golden lamp containing Delzar.
The ritual commenced shortly after Pegasus' arrival. The gnomes began to chant in the gnomish language, some of which Pegasus was able to understand. At least 10 gnomes had participated in this ritual. Pegasus watched as a jagged crack appeared in the middle of the lamp, causing the gnome mages to panic. Within seconds, a large burst of aura shrouded the dark room, causing the gnomes to flee toward the corners of the room. As the smoke cleared, a powerful demon stood where the lamp once had, laughing to himself violently, flapping it's wings powerfully.
Pegasus grasped his staff firmly, glaring at the demon. He rushed toward the beast, attempting to swipe at it's massive chest. Delzar smirked, countering Pegasus' attack with a powerful right hand jab, sending Pegasus hurling into the air. The gnomes watched in horror as the fight continued, as Pegasus was eventually disposed of, rather quickly. Delzar roared into the sky, ripping a portal into the thin air. He transported into the main world, leaving Pegasus behind.
The gnomes slowly nursed Pegasus back to full health back at the Tree Gnome Stronghold, allowing him some time to rest, while an exceptional set of gnomes worked to detect Delzar's location. Pegasus thought to himself deeply during his recovering period, thinking of the Zarosian Mahjarrat he had fought with sometime ago. If anyone knew of the demonic race, it had to be Uroopi. And Pegasus knew where to find him.
Pegasus traveled to the Blue Moon Inn, where the Zarosian Mahjarrat Uroopi had been disguised as the bartender, serving drinks to the rest of the mortals. Uroopi and Pegasus had an intense rivalry ever since Pegasus had defeated him, although he thought asking him for help was worth a try.
Uroopi explained that Delzar was an infernal demon, god like in power, even greater than his own. He urged Pegasus not to get involved with him, as he preferred his rival to stay alive, so he could someday challenge him in battle once again. Uroopi refused to get involved after Pegasus requested his assistance, and asked Pegasus to leave the bar.
Pegasus traveled back to the Tree Gnome Stronghold, where a set of gnomes had been waiting for his arrival. The gnomes had found Delzar's location, and were ready to aid Pegasus in battle against him.
Delzar was found by the gnomes deep within the jungles of Karamja, paying his dues to the fallen members of his clan. Although a foul beast, he seemed to have some sort of loyalty to his kin. With the gnomes on his side this time, Pegasus engaged Delzar in battle once again. Even with the gnomes help, Delzar proved to be the superior fighter, easily disbanding the gnomes, and Pegasus in a brief battle. He allowed them to live once again, but requested they stop following him, unless they wanted to end up dead the next time.
The gnomes once again regrouped after another loss at the hands of the infernal demon, Delzar. Pegasus refused to give up, stating he was "growing stronger with every battle." Pegasus spent his recovery period in the Stronghold studying the gnome culture, learning of their heritage and unique languages. After sometime, the gnomes managed to relocate Delzar, who was drawing large amounts of mystical energy near Eagle's Peak, west of the Stronghold.
Delzar roared with anger at the sight of the gnomes. His cries ripped yet another portal into the thin air, which he slipped into quit effortlessly. Pegasus sprinted after the beast, and managed to slip through after him, just as the portal closed behind him, isolating him from the gnomes.
Pegasus arrived in an unknown Dimension, somewhat similar to the Infernal Realm in appearance. Delzar mocked Pegasus for following him in, stating he had taken it easy on him all along, and that he was know going to use his full power to eliminate him entirely.
Delzar powered up with the demonic energy ensuing from the realm, changing into his full powered infernal beast form. Pegasus fought back helplessly as the beast toyed with him, beating him down to his feet with every blow. Delzar laughed into the fire torched sky, as Pegasus rose to his feet after each and every jab. he refused to give up. The world was relying on him now, and Pegasus couldn't lose, no matter the odds.
Pegasus managed to give the beast quite a fight, but found himself tasting the rigid lava rocks of the infernal realm time and time again. It was no good, his spells seemed to be weaker in this atmosphere. Bits of Pegasus' clothing began to give in to the cruel beatings, leaving him shirtless, and motionless, every muscle in his body engulfed in pain. As Pegasus hit the ground for what seemed to be for the final time, Delzar began to charge a powerful, demonic fire blast. He cried out in pleasure at the sight of a severely wounded Pegasus. Delzar released the blast, and watched in confusion as his spell was counter by another one, similar in power.
Pegasus thanked Uroopi for saving his life, to which Uroopi responded with an arrogant, sarcastic answer. The two joked around with one another for quite sometime, despite the situation, much to the dislike of Delzar. The two stood alongside another, ready to challenge the god like structure.
The Pegasus-Uroopi combo proved to be effective, to some degree, dealing considerably powerful blows to Delzar. However, no matter how hard they seemed to hit the demon, he seemed to shake off the damage after a few moments. With their backs against the wall, the two took a brief timeout to discuss a strategy, hiding from the demon behind a large pillar of bricks.
Only Uroopi emerged from behind the stone pillar to fight Delzar. The beast credited the Mahjarrat for his bravery, and began to pound him. Meanwhile, Pegasus concentrated on a spell, charging a powerful aura spherical blast from behind the pillar. As Uroopi continued to take the beating of his life, the spell grew brighter, until it caught the attention of Delzar. By the time Delzar was able to make his way toward Pegasus, Pegasus transferred the blast into a single hand, and rushed the demon, himself.
With the help of Anima Mundi, the sphere grew wilder in appearance, taking on a bright gold persona. As Delzar prepared himself for the damage, he was held by Uroopi from behind, to ensure he wouldn't get away. The sphere came into direct contact with Delzar's chest, weakening him to the point where it made it difficult for him to even stand.
With the demon struggling back to his feet, Uroopi focused on a powerful binding spell, sealing the demon into a new lamp. The duo returned to Gielinor after defeating Delzar, and Uroopi held on to the lamp afterwards.
An Elven Delight
After the defeat of Delzar, Pegasus became a hero in Kandarin. He has since been refereed to as "Pegasus The Strong", much to his liking. Pegasus decided to move from Lumbridge into Ardougne, the capital of the Kingdom of Kandarin.
Pegasus enjoyed his fame filled lifestyle, attracting large crowds wherever and whenever he traveled around Kandarin. On a quite afternoon in East Ardougne's Flying Horse Inn, Pegasus was found by Lord Sidney and his wife, Ashley. Pegasus enjoyed their company, and formed a strong friendship with Lord Sidney.
Lord Sidney was of elven descent, as was his wife, Ashley. The couple had been married for 10 years, and were a few years apart in terms of age, but both over 10 years older than Pegasus, who was 27. As a wealthy man, Lord Sidney had much business to attend to, always apart of several big name meetings. Because of this reason, he was unable to escort his wife to Varrock, from Ardougne, and thus, moved the task into Pegasus' hands, promising him a special reward in return.Pegasus, being the kind and caring man he always had been, couldn't help but refuse Lord Sidney. Through their time together, Pegasus and Ashley grew extremely course. The two overcame several obstacles throughout their journey to Varrock, such as climbing White Wolf Mountain.
On a dark, rainy night, the two stopped in Taverly, where the room they had chosen only had a single bed. The two slept together that night, thus beginning a long term inappropriate relationship.
Eventually the two reached Varrock, where Ashley reunited with her parents for the first time in some years. Ashley's parents allowed Pegasus to stay in their household during his time in Varrock, where he and Ashley shared several more romantic moments.
After returning back home to Ardounge, Pegasus was heartbroken when Ashley refused to leave her husband for him. Lord Sidney never found about his wife's affair, but had his grandmother sing together a Crystal Bow as a gift for Pegasus.
The Siege of Varrock
|“||Do you know who you address? I am Lord Lucien of the Mahjarrat, Master of the Thousand Curses, look upon my works and despair!||”|
–Lucien, after defeating Pegasus
Towards the end of the Year 154 of the 5th Age, Pegasus' old age (now 60 years old) drew him toward the Misthalin Capital of Varrock, in an attempt to spread the word of Saradomin. Oddly enough, Pegasus arrived through the front gates of Varrock to discover a large flood of flesh hungry zombies attacking the city. An extremely powerful necromancing Mahjarrat, known as Lucien, had begun his conquest of Varrock after hearing rumors of a broken Shield of Arrav.
Pegasus immediately began fighting off the zombies, with the use of his signature Saradomin Staff. The horde of zombies began to diminsh with the help of other heroes, who were in possession of several rune stones. As more and more zombies were defeated, Pegasus was confronted by Sollus Dellagar, a powerful zamorakian mage. Despite his old age, Pegasus held his own agaisnt the powerful mage, matching the necromancer blow for blow.
The battle between the two mages was interrupted by the one in charge, Lucien. Lucien was impressed by Pegasus' power, and told Dellagar to back off, stating he was "the one who should have the honor kill him." Pegasus felt worthy of such a challenge, as he had fought against several Mahjarrat in the past. However, his efforts would come up short, as he was quickly disposed of by the powerful god-like Mahjarrat. With Pegasus down for the count, the Varrock crowd erupted into a flurry of screams. Lucien ultimately fled, understanding he would not be able to seize Varrock, thus leaving Pegasus alive, but severely wounded. After the battle, Pegasus' greatness was admired by the other heroes, earning him the alias, Pegasus The Great.Pegasus was the only one aside from the temple knights to learn of Lucien's name, having lost to him in a battle. He would remember this failure, and keep it buried deep within his heart for the rest of his life.
Pegasus mourned his defeat at the hands of Lucien for quite sometime. He saw it as motivation to grow stronger, even at the age of 60, when most would be preparing for retirement if not already retired.
He learned of Lucien's death at the 18th Ritual of Rejuvenation sometime in the year of 169 of the 5th Age, after Uroopi had told him. Uroopi explained how no one had even made an effort to save him, as he was massacred by three dragonkin.
Pegasus was amazed by the thoughts of such a race, and thus began a long journey to look for the Dragonkin, and ask for their assistance in growing stronger.
The King of All Dragons
|“||Fool! What reason have you to awaken the mightiest of all dragons..?!||”|
–Shakorexis questions Pegasus' actions
Pegasus returned home to Lumbridge as a hero. He had originally intended to spend some quality time with his aging mother, but instead found himself surrounded by crowds of people, and frequently involved in important meetings. Pegasus was given the opportunity by Duke Horacio himself, to raise the Lumbridge Castle flag.
Before his departure, Duke Harcio rewarded Pegasus with an anti-dragon fire shield, a powerful shield capable of absorbing the breath of a fierce dragon, for his efforts as of late and for spreading the word of Saradomin throughout Gielinor. With the shield at hand, Pegasus made a quick stop to say hello to his old friends in Dorgesh-Kaan. As it had been several years since his last visit to Dorgesh-Kaan, Pegasus completely forgot the route, and the darkness of the Lumbridge Swamp Caves surely did not aid him in his travels. Pegasus ventured deep into the cave, and ended up in the southern most side, where he came into contact with a treasure hunting mage, by the name of Movario.Movario happened have some knowledge of the dragonkin, and shared that information with Pegasus, after Pegasus had offered to share some of his runes with the mage. Pegasus thanked Movario for his gratitude, and departed toward Rimmington, to visit the Grotworm Lair he had been told of.
Pegasus arrived at the Grotworm Lair, just south of Rimmington, with an uneasy feeling in his stomach. The lair proved to be difficult to travel through, filled with the stench of dying bodies. Pegasus managed to pull his way through the Lair, and investigated the dead body of a fallen white knight soldier, who presumably had been here for reasons similar to Pegasus.
For reasons unknown, the white knight had a journal in his brown bag, which Pegasus took his time to read. The book contained further knowledge on the dragokin, happened to have been written by one itself, by the name of "Kerapac." The document was a mere copy of a book, and was difficult to read, due to several burns around the edges.
Pegasus traveled back to the Lumbridge Swamp Caves in order to show Moravio the journal he had obtained. He offered Moravio the journal in return for his runes back, which Moravio reluctantly agreed to. Little did Moravio know, that Pegasus had made a copy of the copy, thus, gaining knowledge for no additional charge. Moravio encouraged Pegasus to meet with the King Black Dragon for more information on the dragonkin, and told him of his location.
With the trusty anti-dragonfire shield given to him by Duke Haracio at hand, Pegasus trotted through the wilderness. He found it odd that he could not teleport back after venturing deep into the wilderness, as he really needed to take a quick bathroom break. None the less, Pegasus found a nice dead tree to make his business on, and carried on with his adventure. Pegasus eventually found the cavern containing the King of all Black Dragons, and initiated a conversation with him.
As soon as Pegasus arrived through the cavern, he was attacked by the King Black Dragon's fiery breath. The shield came in good use, as it soaked majority of the fire. The dragon roared into the dim lighted cavern, and questioned Pegasus for his actions. At first, Pegasus denied his true intentions of visiting the dragon's lair. He told the dragon that he had come to comfort him, and offered a massage, which the dragon accepted. Pegasus explained that he knew the lonely feeling he must have been feeling all to well, and somehow managed to befriend the dragon, with the help of his dear old buddy pal Hank, who to this day was still running Lumbridge's only fishing store.
Finally, after three full fun filled days with the dragon revealed it's real name to Pegasus, which is Shakorexis. He also finally questioned Shakorexis about the dragonkin, and his past. Shakorexis became emotional, but none the less, provided Pegasus with the information. Shakorexis was created by the dragonkin sometime during the First Age, and was labeled as a failure. Shakorexis' background brought tears to Pegasus' eyes.
After several more days in Shakorexis' lair, Pegasus finally mentioned the dragonkin again. He asked Shakorexis how he could contact them, and stayed an additional five days after learning how to, to show Shakorexis that he truly did care for him. He promised to return twice a year with plenty of fish.
Search for Power
|“||You see, err... I'm in the need of your assistance.||”|
–Pegasus, to the Temple Knights
Pegasus was filled with excitement at the thought of such powerful beings. He begged the temple knights for help in tracking down a single dragonkin, and understood that it would be a very difficult task to perform. Pegasus thanked the Temple Knights for their help, and left the next morning for the Tree Gnome Stronghold, taking along the Commorb they had provided him with.
Pegasus returned his current home of Falador, to meet with the Temple Knights, whom he had assisted in battle against Lucien, during the latter's attempt at retrieving the Shield of Arrav. As a handful of knights had been present during the 18th ritual of rejuvenation, they had seen Lucien's demise, and thus, explained the physical appearance of the dragonkin to Pegasus.
Pegasus was welcomed back warmly by the gnomes, befriending them during his battle against the powerful infernal demon, Delzar. The gnomes were known to be excellent trackers, and were just what Pegasus needed at this point in time. The gnomes showed their loyalty to Pegasus by agreeing to help search for a dragonkin, without question.
With already a large group of trackers looking for a dragonkin, Pegasus headed back to Adrounge, his former home. There he met with a dear old friend, Lord Sidney. Lord Sidney was half elven, his mother still residing in Prifddinas, the greatest city of the elves, located just north of Isafdar, and the capital of Tirannwn. Pegasus himself had never been to Tirannwn, but asked Lord Sidney if he could ask his mother to hire elven trackers back there. Lord Sidney agreed to help Pegasus, as he had helped him in the past.
With the best trackers in all of Gielinor at his finger tips, Pegasus kicked back in the Tree Gnome Stronghold and enjoyed a game of Gnomeball, watching Flash Fizzlewhistle scored 48 points in a double overtime win against the Terrorbirds.
Pegasus Versus The Dragonkin
The 6th Age commenced with the death of Guthix at the hands of the Zarosian Mahjarrat Sliske. After several months of waiting, Pegasus was finally contacted by the Temple Knights, then shortly after by the gnomes, then by the Elves in Tirannwn. They had all managed to track down a single Dragonkin, the same one, oddly enough, and suggested Pegasus go there at once.
Pegasus, who had been peacefully resting in the Falador Garden, quickly made his way toward the Falador Castle. There, lie a map waiting for him, which he quickly retrieved, and took off, hoping to come into contact with a dragonkin.
For quicker transportation, Pegasus summoned Rakirii the Phoenix, the most trustworthy of his familiars. Rakrii's screams of excitement were heard throughout all of Falador, as the duo made it's way to the Rellekka Hunter area.
Pegasus arrived in the snowbound lands within a short amount of time, a new personal best for Rakirii. Although Rakirii was his best friend, Pegasus decided to dismiss his familiar, to show the dragonkin that he meant no harm.
With Rakirii dismissed, Pegasus began his search for the dragonkin. The tough weather conditions of Rellekka took their toll on Pegasus' shoes, providing a great deal of discomfort for the old man (now 75) through his travels.After hours of searching, Pegasus was destroyed emotionally. The past 15 years of his life had been devoted in the search of the Dragonkin, and the opportunity had fallen from his grasps. Saddened by his failure, Pegasus looked over a large cliff, peering down at the ice waters of Relleka's hunting area. Suddenly, he heard the flapping of powerful wings. Never had Pegasus heard such a sound before in his life, and within seconds, a large dragonic beast appeared before him.
Pegasus was at a loss for words, as the dragonkin floated in the air, just inches away from him. The fearsome beast made eye contact with Pegasus, before a large smirk appeared on it's face. Pegasus held his hands up to show he had no intentions to battle, though the dragonkin had other ideas. A large blast of fire emitted from the beast's mouth, sending Pegasus rolling back, after his anti-dragon fire shield managed to soak some of the breath.The beast fired away again, this time, destroying the shield. Pegasus looked on in horror as his prized shield was demolished within seconds. With little to no time to act, Pegasus stood firm, grasping his signature Saradomin Staff in his right hand, glaring at the dragonkin.
A grand battle commenced, air against fire. For reasons only known to elves, the crystal bow had weakened greatly, until finally, it had returned to it's crystal seed form. Pegasus fought with his life on the line, hurling his aging body to the left, then quickly to the right in an effort to dodge the beast's fiery breath. His binding spells came of no use, splashing against the beast's metallic plate armor.
In the heat of the moment, with the outcome of his future in question, a smile appeared on Pegasus' face. This is what he had wanted, what he had long dreamed for. No one was going to take this moment from him.
Pegasus used his remaining energy to coat his staff with magical energy, staring down the dragonkin as a small orb of white flashing aura appeared on the upper tip of the staff. The dragonkin noticed Pegasus' growing spell, and began to charge one of his own, a ball of fiery aura appearing near it's mouth.
With the final moments of the heated clash drawing near, Pegasus charged forward, staff in hand. The dragonkin rushed forward as well, hoping to dispose of Pegasus' soul entirely. Pegasus cried out in pain as he was met halfway by the blast, his own spell clashing against the beast's chest.
The magical clash sent Pegasus flying several feet into the air. A cool breeze blew through his hair as he dropped into the ice cold water, blood spewing from nose, mouth and ears.
In his final moments, Pegasus smiled once again, his only regret not knowing the outcome of the battle entirely. His eyes closed slowly, the smile never fading from his face.
Preparing for his demise at the bottom of Rellekka's ice cold waters, Pegasus closed his eyes, the smile never fading from his face. When all hope was lost, when it looked as though it was time for Pegasus to call it quits, a squadron of penguins, all members of the Killer Gentoo Penguins rescued Pegasus. The reason was simple, of course. For saving his life, the KGP announced Pegasus in debt, and expected him to now come of use for them in the near future.
Having been recently crowned as the Archmage of the Second Wizards' Tower, after succeeding Archmage Sedridor, Pegasus returned to the Wizards' Tower with a sense of comfort. His days of adventure were no seemingly over, and it was now time to help the next generation of wizards excel.
Pegasus vs. 'Vile
As peaceful of a morning as it had ever been in Lumbridge, Pegasus was in town, held in deep conversation with Duke Horacio and gang over some lovely baked bread and a glass of fresh cow milk, when, Han, of all people came, dashing about from the hallway, shouting insanely for Pegasus to come assist him at once. Hesitant due to the lovely breakfast table set out before him, and ultimately unaware of the true impact of an upcoming foe, Pegasus took his time, gathering together his Staff of Saradomin, his cape of Saradomin, and his beloved Holy Symbol (of Saradomin), before following Han out of the dining hall, his arm around the latter and all, as if this were some sort of field-trip meant for the adolescent monks of the Lumbridge cathedral. Suddenly, a large explosion erupted from outside the Lumbridge castle walls, forcing Pegasus to his feet. Han covered his face, as a reminiscent glare appeared over Pegasus' olden facial structure, who was now sprinting down the tedious lengths, of what were the Lumbridge castle staircases.
Arriving down the steps, yet another large explosion was felt, causing a similar effect to the first, although this time Pegasus was able to keep his balance, the grasp around his staff remaining tight. Exiting the castle's courtyard, he spotted a small, dark colored figure in the distance, wielding what seemed to have been a staff made of branches. Inching closer and closer towards the man, Pegasus was almost blinded by the figure's vast spiritual aura, until he was forced to summon his phoenix companion, Rakirii, to investigate the man from above. Soaring high into the air, Pegasus' eyes were restrained of the earlier frustrations, and he was clearly able to identify the figure as Falador's previous ruler, Lord 'Vile. The figure was dressed in tattered robes, seemingly from continuous use. A large battle ensued, and Lumbridge was to be the battlefield, dozens of dead soldiers scattered throughout the city. Soaring high above the architectural structures of Lumbridge, Pegasus fired a volley of magically powered arrows from his crystal bow, which had been further coated in the heated flames of Rakirii. Seeing the shots of arcane power, 'Vile quickly gathered in runic energy expelled from the nearby Water altar to let out short pulses of raw energy to disrupt the balance of the Crystal shot, causing each shot to land several feet away from him, resulting in fiery explosions throughout the battlefield. Angered by his faltered projectory, Pegasus began to gather and rotate air energy around in the palm of his bare right hand, to form a large powered sphere. As he saw the Saradominist high above readying a spell, 'Vile decided to replicate it, to show this wizard that he was nothing special. Letting his arms open wide on either side of him, he drew in the Arcane magicks lingering about him from the mage's Crystal arrows, letting the energy flow through his body and concentrate within his right palm, causing the wind to kick up and swirl viciously around him. His tattered robes flapped in the gathering storm of wind, an updraft kicking the loose scraps of cloth skywards as a pale, opaque orb of magicks formed within his grasp. He curled his left arm in and contained the magic with his left hand, keeping his gaze set on his new opponent. Rakirii screeched hungrily into the daytime sky, as Pegasus leaped from on top of his familiar, the air bending aura still gathered in his right hand reaching out before him, meaning to collide with Lord 'Vile. Pegasus was thrusting his own sphere towards the Titan's body, and so 'Vile retaliated by whirling around to his right, out to Pegasus' open left side. This allowed him to plummet to the ground, but that wasn't all. Upon stopping his spin, he moved his left hand and thrust his own Wind orb outwards to the archmage's body, only to meet with Pegasus' own, as he had followed 'Vile's movements. The two spells collided and caused a brief vacuum in the area around them, sucking in all the air within a 5 feet radius-... And then, it popped. The two differently-constructed spells conflicted and repelled each other, detonating and sending both mages soaring backwards. 'Vile tucked his body into a ball, rolling and opening himself as he was on his back to launch up to his feet, using the momentum to roll back on to them. He skid backwards, one hand grasping at the earth to stop the slide, the glow in his eyes flashing red briefly. His Inhibitor necklace was cracked from the explosion.
Pegasus, as he had been airborne when the collision happened, had flown much farther. But as he flew, he was already putting his essence into a spell, drawing all the energy he had stored over the years to quell this monstrosity of a man, hoping to save the day once again, as he had several times in the past. As he saw the traveling wizard rising, Pegasus slammed his hands to the ground, palms open. A creeping tendril of ice slithered through the murky Lumbridge swamp, his phoenix letting out a startled caw as it took off away from the insulting element. 'Vile rose to his feet, his eyes flashing a blazing red again. He was trembling, his aura cutting short and.. vanishing. It was like he wasn't there magically. Or, more like he was caught in limbo. But he was still charging, visible by the wispy tendrils of smoke that rose off his body, and his tangible body was quaking and twitching, yet not moving. It was an odd sight, but Pegasus' spell would reach him before he finished whatever he was doing, hopefully. 'Vile raised his hands over his head, crossed at the wrists, and.. His eyes flashed open as he felt the cold shell encase him, freezing him in a solid case of ice. Pegasus smirked, triumphant again. He survived a Dragonkin, this creature was nothing compared to him. He turned, lifting his staff from the ground, as he had dropped it to cast the spell. Triumphantly, he limped away. He'd need to get his leg checked, that was a nasty tumble-...
Just then, he heard a shattering noise that sent shivers down his spine. He turned, just in time to avoid shards of ice flying past him. Where the mage once stood was a tyrannical monster of a warrior, clad in cruel, thick armor, black and purple in nature. Pegasus fell back, as the behemoth in armor fell forwards, on all fours. A guttural snarl echoed from the creature, deep and bassy, that caused Pegasus' very bones to resonate. The creature that must be 'Vile clawed at the ground, swiping two nasty grooves in with a pass of his clawed gauntlets. His Phoenix let out a screech to alert Pegasus of the danger, but he couldn't move. He was petrified that such a monster existed, able to break free of something he used his entire being to cast.. All he could do was raise his arm as the phoenix swooped down, and grab it by the leg, letting it lift him up and off towards Falador.
Before his final battle agaisnt a powerful dragonkin, Pegasus wrote this letter, and had an Ibis deliver it to Duke Horacio if he did not return within three days. Pegasus is remembered for being a strong willed person, who never gave up hope no matter the situation at hand. He also enjoyed fighting more than anything, as evident in his battle agaisnt the dragonkin, he smiled in the heat of battle.
Pegasus is also very well recognized for spreading Saradominism worldwide, traveling through much of Geinilor in his prime years to deliver the message of good. Message of Pegasus' disappearance through multiple regions, but many refused to believe he could have died.
In honor of Pegasus, a grand meeting took place in Lumbridge. Duke Harocio invited King Narnode Shareen, Sir Vey Lance, Sir Amik Varze, and Lord Sidney to a private meeting in the Lumbridge Hall. There, the nobles discussed the creation of a statue in remembrance of Pegasus, and ultimately decided on placing it in Lumbridge, as it was where Pegasus had grown.
A long period of work ensued, as gnomes, humans, and even a few elves gathered together in Falador to create the statute. After a few months of work, the statue was finished, and now stands firm beside the Lumbridge Castle.

The character Pegasus was created on May 15th, 2014 by Orange Book, otherwise known as Rachel Santos. This character was meant to somewhat mirror Draynor's "Wise Old Man."
After already creating multiple characters in the past, I found myself bored yet again. I decided to think of a character I could roleplay eternally, one which the community would know me as. So this was the outcome, an older, wiser, character, who has a lot to offer from his past experiences.
This character was previously used in a manga I created as a child, way back in 2006. The name "Pegasus" came from a popular anime at the time, by the name of "Yu-Gi-Oh." Alot of the things about this character are manga/anime related, from the appearance to his fighting style, as well as bits of his personality.
- Pegasus' favorite food is Cheese and tomato battas, which he tasted for the first time during his momentary tenure in the Tree Gnome Stronghold
- Due to an unusual experience with frogs in his childhood, Pegasus despises them
- Although he was strictly against it at first, Pegasus has developed a drinking addiction over the years
- Though he has been seen with many women over his lifetime, Pegasus has yet to marry
- Although many believe him to be dead, there is no real proof, as his body has never been found
