Veliaf Hurtz is the leader of the Mort Myre division of The Myreque, a group dedicated to fighting Lord Drakan's dominion of Morytania. Veliaf is a bold and resourceful leader, and he is very dedicated to his cause. In In Search of the Myreque, the player saves him and the other members of the group from Vanstrom Klause and slay Vanstrom's Skeletal Hellhound.
Two of Veliaf's comrades, Harold and Sani, are killed by Vanstrom during the attack, so to avoid more deaths, the player assists his team again in In Aid of the Myreque. During the quest, he asks of the player to help in moving Myreque Headquarters to the new location in Burgh de Rott. There, he assists the player in killing Gadderanks and his two Vampyre bodyguards. In Burgh de Rott, the player establishes a base of operations for the Myreque safe and hidden for the time being.
He also appears to be a devout Saradominist. He wears a Steel platebody bearing the star of Saradomin on it, and it is apparent that he knows Drezel, the priest of Paterdomus, as he sends Ivan Strom to the Temple when the Myreque became too much for his young mind.
- Veliaf's name could be a play on words. His name, when pronounced, sounds like "belief hurts".
