Skotizo is a demonic demi-boss located beneath the Catacombs of Kourend. Accessing its lair requires the use of a dark totem on the altar found in the centre of the Catacombs; one dark totem permits only one attempt.

According to Malumac's journal, Skotizo was a former general of Zamorak during the God Wars, and led an expedition to recover an artefact, under Zamorak's direct orders, in the Karamjan Temple found deep within the Kharazi Jungle. However, he soon betrayed Zamorak and his squad, taking the power for himself and decimating the expedition team. What happened to him next is unknown, though it is known he eventually made his way to the Catacombs of Kourend, where he resides to this day.

Drops

Skotizo will always drop one shard, with a rare chance to drop an additional 1-4.
