|A bee keeper.|
The beekeeper is a man who runs an apiary west of Catherby and south of Seers' Village, next to a flaxfield. He will tell players all about his bees and beehives, and explain how to obtain buckets of wax as well as its uses. He tells players that they are welcome to take as much wax and honeycombs as they want, and gives them some insect repellent to aid in doing so.
He appears to be somewhat obsessed with his bees, and warns players to leave them alone, as they belong to him. He makes a bee related pun when players say goodbye to him, telling them to 'bee' good.
He is involved in a random event. He teleports players to a field of beehives and requests help to repair a broken beehive. Players have to assemble the beehive from its four main parts by clicking on them and moving them into their place marked in the center of the screen. After positioning a piece, they have to select another and repeat the process until the beehive is completely repaired. After all the pieces are placed, they have to click the 'build' button at the bottom of the screen to finally assemble the hive.
If the hive is successfully repaired, the player receives a reward and is returned to their original location. If they fail, however, the bees escape from their hive start attacking the player. The Player then runs away from their original location, to a location near a river to escape the bees.
This random event is available to free-to-play and members, despite the NPC being members-only.
