Savras (pronounced SAV-ras [2]) was a god of mages and wizards in the service of Mystra, goddess of magic. Some say he was once a mortal, one of the mighty mages who constructed the portals beneath the city of Raven's Bluff. He is portrayed as a man with a crystalline face, clear to all who see him. His statements are clear, concise, and rarely what the listener wishes to hear. Savras' symbol is a crystal ball with many monstrous eyes.

Worshipers Edit

Main article: Church of Savras

Savras is worshiped in both north and south as a god of diviners and truth-speakers. His clergy is still sparse, as Savras has just been released from his centuries-old prison. Savras's only famous servant was Alaundo of Candlekeep, the one true prophet of the Realms.

Savras is particularly beloved in the nations of the Chultan Peninsula (Tashalar, Samarach, Nimbral, and so on), where scrying and spying are practically the national pastimes due to the inhabitants' fear of the yuan-ti.[3]

The Gurs have been known to worship Savras, which may explain the survival of his faith during his long period of imprisonment.[4]

Orders Edit

Benign Order of the Third Eye
A secret cult would seem to be anathema for a god devoted to finding the truth but in 1371 DR, such a cult did form. Consisting mainly of archivists (and incidentally containing the highest concentration of archivists of any group in the Realms) the Benign Order's members were all granted a vision from Savras where he impressed upon them the need to collect magic and lore in preparation for an upcoming battle with Cyric. Unfortunately, the Order was overzealous in its search and became known for graverobbing.[5]

Relationships Edit

Savras, along with Velsharoon, serves Azuth, who is his superior, and thus is serving Mystra, indirectly. Following some dramatic events, he has a cold relationship with Azuth, which has steadily grown to a mutual respect.

History Edit

Savras, as a demigod and Azuth, a wizard with god-like abilities, duelled; this was due to Azuth contending for Savras' place. Thereafter, Savras fell, with Azuth becoming the one god of wizards. Savras was imprisoned in the Scepter of Savras by Azuth, where he remained until the Time of Troubles. Following this, Azuth agreed to release Savras in exchange for a pledge of fealty, leading to their current dynamic. An unthinkable catastrophe ensues when Cyric, aided and abetted by Shar, murders Mystra in Dweomerheart. The plane itself disintegrates at once, destroying Savras and sending the gods Azuth and Velsharoon reeling into the endless Astral Sea.
