Kanrik's close attack in the Battledome

Kanrik is a Blue Gelert and is currently leader of the Thieves Guild, after he defeated its previous leader Galem.

He led the Thieves Guild to war over the control of a mysterious obelisk in Tyrannia.

Plot summary

Hannah and the Ice Caves

Main article: Hannah and the Ice Caves (Plot)

Kanrik and his fellow thieves were tasked with finding a mysterious treasure by their leader Galem. When he found an adventurous Usul telling her tales of daring do, he made up a story that "his sister and his village" suffering a strange illness and needing a way to save them. They travelled to the Lost Desert together, where they entered an unknown tomb laden with traps. Hannah was then hit with a strange curse and was left for dead, while Kanrik and a couple of his comrades carried anything they could find; in this case, a coffin. Galem thought to use the creature inside the coffin to steal a treasure from deep under the ice of Terror Mountain. After reaching the Mountain, however, Masila coaxed the Kanrik into opening the coffin and using it to overthrow Galem. At first reluctant in betraying his leader, he went against his better judgement and released a creature from the coffin, the Bringer of Night. After a clash between the creature's army and his guild, Kanrik was banished from the guild. He was then knocked out with a poisonous liquid by Masila, and abandoned on Terror Mountain.

He soon ran into Hannah and a mysterious Neopet and, after a brief clash of their own, offered to make up for his past transgressions and join them in stopping his old guild and the monster's army. They ran into Armin's species, the Bori, who helped them push back the guild. After the Bringer of Night was finally killed, Kanrik and Armin carried Hannah to the top of the mountain where Taelia was able to lift the curse and save Hannah's life.

Kanrik was last seen taking over Galem's place as the new leader of the Thieves Guild.

Garin and Jacques robbed the wedding of a Blue Gelert and a brown-haired Usul that might have been a cameo from Kanrik and Hannah. Dialogue between Hanso and Jazan in Editorial #587 implies they may be together.

War for the Obelisk

Main article: War for the Obelisk

Kanrik lead the Theives Guild to the mysterious obelisk, believing they could find great treasure there.

Battledome

Kanrik is the only character to appear in the Battledome in two different forms. During the Hannah and the Ice Caves plot, he was one of the plot's boss characters and was simply called Kanrik. This boss version of Kanrik had an extremely high number of hit points and very powerful weapons. During the War for the Obelisk, Kanrik appeared as a high-level normal opponent under the name Kanrik, Master Thief. This version of Kanrik has a much lower number of hit points and a completely different set of weapons. This second version of Kanrik can still be fought at the Battleground of the Obelisk, where he fights on behalf of the Thieves Guild.
