Dionysius (b. 15 Novtumber, 2000 4A), more commonly known as the Wise Old Man, is the town's wise man of Draynor Village. He is known to have gone to school with the king of Misthalin, Roald Remanis III, and is a retired adventure, but in his younger days, he was a famed hero.

Before While Guthix SleepsEdit

Young wom

The Wise Old Man around the time of 139.

The Wise Old Man appears at the Church of Saradomin in the year of 139 as a young man. As Zamorak seemingly kills Guthix, and proceeds to destroy the church, the Wise Old Man picks up Guthix's shard and keeps it for himself, owning it for the next thirty years, often boasting about it at the Blue Moon Inn, much to Roald Remanis's annoyance.

While Guthix SleepsEdit

In Roald Remanis and Aidan Knight's search for the three shards of the God Charm, King Roald tells Aidan that the owner of the Guthix shard lives in Draynor Village, and is none other than the Wise Old Man. Upon arriving at his house, however, Dionysius refuses to give Aidan the shard, saying it is his most prized possession, and that all the money in the world could not change his mind. Forced to take drastic measures, Aidan returns later that night and steals the shard, as the Wise Old Man's sirens wake half the town.

Aidan Knight: The Edicts of GuthixEdit

The Wise Old Man appears in the eleventh chapter of Aidan Knight: The Edicts of Guthix, which is named after him. In this, the Wise Old Man finds Aidan Knight standing beside the river in Draynor Village; he invites Aidan inside for a cup of tea, and the two sit down to talk. Dionysius reveals of how Queen Ellamaria's parents were peasants, how he was good friends with them, and that Zamorak may not be the queen and princess's kidnapper after all. He goes on to say that Zamorak only appears to be extraordinarily powerful. Aidan gets defencive at this remark, and retorts with, "Then why don't you do it?", though after which he apologises.

Physical appearanceEdit

In his younger days, he is merely described as having a short beard, nothing more. Thirty years later, however, in the present day, he description is limited to, "A man [...] sitting in an old wooden chair, his glasses perched upon his nose. His partyhat that sat on his head did not arouse Aidan's interest [...]". In the next book, he is shown as a hooded man with a long white beard, which swished to and fro in the wind.
