The Sun Folk’s Mother of Memory

Savah is an ancient elf, founder of the Sun Village of Sorrow’s End and progenitor of the Sun Folk.

Savah was born into a group of elves called the Rootless Ones who were decimated by aggressive human tribes. Savah, along with her mother Hassbet, Yurek, Dreen and Maalvi fled their forest home and into the burning waste of the desert, eventually discovering a green oasis in the foothills of the World Spine Mountains that they called Sorrow’s End. The village’s first inhabitants sprung from Savah and her Recognized lifemate Yurek, and the Sun Folk were born. As the village grew, Savah took on the role of the Mother of Memory and leader of her many descendants.

Regal and serene, Savah is the very soul of dignity, possessing gentle beauty and quiet wisdom. She possesses subtle yet powerful magic, able to enter other elves’ minds and connect with them on a deep telepathic level. She can also gather energy to create a glowing light and even ignite small fires. Savah never sleeps, but often enters a deep trance by sending her spirit out of her body to the astral plane, where she constantly searches for knowledge that will help other elves.

Savah’s love for elfkind is unconditional and all-forgiving. She loves to teach and has been mentor to other magic-users, including Rayek, Sunstream, and Ahdri. Even when a pupil goes off the path of right action, she will not blame or reject but merely attempt to redirect.

After millennia hidden in the peace of the Sun Village, humans finally discovered and invaded the oasis refuge, wounding Savah and forcing the villagers to flee underground and abandon their home. Savah survived her wound, and the villagers were eventually rescued by the Palace of the High Ones. Despite her experiences, Savah still hopes for a time when elves and humans can live together in harmony.

Savah now dwells in the Palace, helping the elves that live there to rediscover the magical heritage of their ancient ancestors. The ultimate maternal presence, she offers comfort and touchstone for all elves and those who seek her guidance.
