The Stockwood Scrolls
Savenius the Knowing is an 85 year old Waterdhavian human cleric of the god of knowledge, Oghma. He is the head of his god’s church in Waterdeep, which is known as the Font of Knowledge, and is famous for its Great Library and the many independent sages working within its walls. As head of his church, he is known as a Savant of Oghma.
Savenius is a dark-skinned, white bearded older man with a head near impossibly filled with knowledge. Although he appears frail to most, those with a keen eye can see he can still move with the litheness of someone less than half his age if he wants to. Although he can appear dottery, he is a keen judge of character, and only reveals his knowledge to those he deems worthy.
He received the Heroes of Skyreach in Hammer of 1490 DR, and advised them on possible ways to reach Avernus, so that they might destroy the source of power for a forcefield created by the rebel Red Wizards to protect the Well of Dragons. Though he was a source of much information, he eventually referred them on to the tiefling warlock Master Xan, who had direct experience travelling to the Nine Hells.
