Zamorak (colloquially known as Zammy) is one of the three major gods (the other two being Guthix and Saradomin). He is the God of Chaos. His symbol is two horns joined together. Guthix calls him a personification of chaos when asked about this in one of his letters. His followers allegedly burnt the original Wizards' Tower to the ground, depriving the Saradominist mages of the time of much of the knowledge of Magic, and in particular how to make runes. This is, however, not true, as the Saradominist mages were proven to be the ones who had burnt it down. Zamorak was the second main participant in the God Wars (his representative is K'ril Tsutsaroth). Though he did not shape the world as did Guthix, Zamorak had corrupted many parts of the would-be orderly world that Saradomin envisioned, with taints of "evil" (in the opinion of most people).
Zamorak was not always a god, but was once a mortal Mahjarrat. How he became a god was once not known, and the specifics are still a bit fuzzy. However, it is now known by talking to ghosts involved in a revolt that he led. He used to be a general of the army of the great god Zaros, until he and some of his close followers decided to rebel. Using the Staff of armadyl, which he obtained through a series of circumstances mentioned in more detail during the miniquest, Zamorak was able to stab Zaros in the back with it whilst his close followers (including Hazeel, Drakan, Zemouregal, a human warrior named Viggora, and some others not mentioned by name) fought off Zaros' bodyguards. He stabbed Zaros in the back with the staff, but this did not do much at first, other than sending Zaros into a blind rage. However, when Zaros had Zamorak in his grasp and was ready to deliver the death blow, he tripped, thus causing the Staff of armadyl to impale Zamorak as well as him. This caused Zaros' power to run through the staff, into Zamorak like an electrical current. After this, Zaros faded out of the dimension while cursing all involved in the revolt to be invisible ghosts for the rest of eternity, and Zamorak seemed more solid, although he did not become a god until a short time later.
Zamorak signed his 'Postbag from the Hedge' letters "Strength through Chaos".
