Description: Savio is a tall man but not one of extreme height, leanly built, a languid person who moves like he's being poured from a bottle into a wine glass. His brown hair is seditious, his goatee's a little scruffy, and his eyes are puddle-colored. He talks with his hands, and is always wearing more than three rings. Although his attire is colorful and of a fine quality suggesting a good life, it's constantly in some degree of deshabille that suggests choices were made and they weren't good ones.

Personality: Savio struggles with his natural inclination to avoid effort and ambition, paired with a new sense of obligation and responsibility to his people. He is subject to mood swings, and has difficulty balancing highs and lows. Although he can be charming and good-humored, he is slow to truly trust others and keenly feels that he is different from other people.

Background: Born into the exorbitantly rich, Saffron commoner family of Pontelaeus, fortune has always been at Savio's service. However, where it inspired ambition in his brother Giorgio, it bred indolence in his younger brother. None of Savio's projects, aspirations, or ambitions ever seemed to succeed, and plagued by bad luck, he soon learned to stop trying. Why struggle? Why not just enjoy success?

Though he had some martial skill and talent at entertaining, Savio did not share Giorgio's aptitude or interest in the cutthroat social dances and economic mastery that made Pontelaeus what it is. Eventually his bad luck and misfit nature created a series of bitter disagreements with his relatives, and Savio sought to distance himself from the family. He disappeared to other parts of the Saffron Chain, drifting from exotic location to exotic location, getting into and out of trouble, and living a wasteful life that did nothing useful for anyone. But the Pontelaeus family's patience with this wayward son was not infinite, and after almost a decade of tolerating Savio's indulgences and bankrolling his bad luck, they cut him off. Penniless, he was forced to travel to Arx, where he was expected to make himself useful to Giorgio and to the family.

Time in Arx changed some things about Savio, but not all. He remains what most would describe as 'a character,' an eccentric figure who has cultivated a circle of friends and allies of similar uniqueness. He built a reputation as a bard, a skilled performer whose charm and wit could captivate an audience. He even fell in love.

During the recent war against Skal'daja, Savio's beloved home city of Tremorus fell under siege. Losses were heavy, including most of his family as well as Ezmeralda, the ruling Marquessa. Her dying wish was that Savio and his brother be ennobled, and so he found himself a newly-minted lord, expected to conform to the standards of the Compact. The burden of neonobility weighs heavily on him following the devastation of the war, but for the sake of his people, it's one he's doing his best to bear.

  • Name Summary
    Adalyn I would never claim to understand the weight of the burdens he must bear, but I feel compelled to assist where I can. There's a raw sort of honesty in the way he carries himself, something that feels like a rarity in this city.
    Adrienne I had the pleasure of hearing Savio Ponteleaus perform while we were both in Pieros before the Skal'dajan invasion. He's undeniably talented yet with a charm that makes it seem effortless. What more could we ask on behalf of those heading to battle?
    Aella When his rhymes get him killed, I hope I'm there to laugh. With him. To be clear.
    Aella The best of the best! The wonderful and charismatic bard. The man whom has all the best stories, what's not to like! Plus, he showered me with blowing kisses. Rest assured he's won me over as a friend!
    Aethan A difficult position to be put in, even more so to be congratulated for it. War is never easy, but it makes leaders out of the strangest people, those who would never have thought to inspire to it. Sadness is a phase of loss; a strong man will rebound with determination from it, harder, but prepared for hurt that is going to happen again. Time will tell whom Lord Proscipi will become.
    Amador Charming in an unrefined sort of way, but there an inquisitive cleverness folded within his whimsy. I find it difficult not to smile when in his presence.
    Amari He should maybe refrain from jumping into any water that's aglow. He seems fun, so it would be a shame if he was eaten by a kraken.
    Andromeda Savio is everything his brother Giorgio is not, for good or ill. They have a few commonalities, however, and those are for good. We'll see how the second son fares. He's fighting, at least.
    Anisha Savio Pontelaus is a delight; a fresh southern breeze carried from so far away. Style, flair and just a little impishness. His stories will be grand, I assure you.
    Apollo What a shame that he thinks us so different.
    Ariella He sang about me and so now we will be best friends. I am ready to tell the world that he is the best musician there ever has been.
    Arman I had certainly heard of Savio Proscipi before today by word and deed but having now met the man in person I can say he is as charming and passionate as some might suggest and with a clear loyalty to his House and family.
    Auda He poured his heart out for me, and I'll be forever grateful.
    Audgrim I normally wouldn't accept work off someone that offers it after less than five minutes, but I need it. Besides, he's got money and he seems trustworthy enough.
    Azova The Sailor. The more easygoing of the two brothers, and with a bit more mischief to his words. But like his brother, he wants to do the right thing. And that counts for much.
    Baldessare A man with wisdom lies beneath a facade otherwise. One who truly cares about the people in his life. Very noble indeed.
    Baz I understand him in a way I don't care to understand most.
    Bhandn It was incredibly foolish to confront that individual I refuse to call a knight, but a part of me was envious I didn't do the same. Still, he was useful in a fight, which I'll have to remember.
    Bonnie He is tremendously fun and has the very best words! No task would be tedious if Lord Savio came along!
    Brannen A young man who showed up at the shrine of Limerance. He seemed uncomfortable at first, but he was interested in talking and listening. I appreciated his openness to our customs and traditions - he may have been skeptical, but he seemed sincere and honest in his words. And I think that he values fidelity as much as we do.
    Calla Giorgio's brother, and apparently the stabby one of the two, though he seems to do a whole lot of talking. Especially about a certain import from Tremorus, I'm looking forward to testing out his supply
    Calypso A national. fucking. treasure. Anyone who disagrees is welcome to be wrong.
    Caspian Every so often you meet someone and all you can think is the adventures you both would get into and how truly marvelous it would be. Lord Savio is such a man! i hope to learn more of this fantastic entertainer!"
    Cassima Despite the dark circumstances and difficulties surrounding him, he is light itself. Speaking and acting with a grace that many of my peers could stand to learn. That I could stand to learn. He will be a boon to his House and the Compact, and I sincerely wish all the best to him.
    Cassiopeia You are love and that is our strength, cousin. From the jungles to the cities. And so shall the darkness quiver.
    Catalana Witty. Hardly annoying like I was led to believe.
    Cecilia A man that seems to know how to create a party environment. Fun in all the right ways.
    Celine Lord Savio fights particularly well with a lute, something I wouldn't have thought that I'd find myself saying in the normal course of a day. I'd love to know him better, but who /wouldn't/ want to know someone that can compose a whole song whilst dodging a blade! I don't believe I've been so entertained in a very long time!
    Cesare Whether he knows it or not, his perseverance could serve as example to many. Circumstances have tried all too hard to snuff out his light, but it shines proudly within him nonetheless, and I hope he will continue to protect and nurture it, because it's a light the world deserves - and needs - to see. Also, he's delightful.
    Ciro Well what wonder sometimes steps through the doors of the places we visit. A good man from what I can tell, with words that flow and an energy about him that I dare say reminds me in some ways of one of my dearest cousins.
    Ciro Damn Savio. Goes and gets himself hurt and then plays the 'I'm an invalid' card to make me play and almost sing. Well played, good sir, well played. I won't forget that, though.
    Cirroch A thoughtful song for every occasion, and amazing company.
    Denica There is so much heart here. It is no wonder he is one of the greatest poets in the Compact, or at least, in my humble opinion he most certainly is. A sense of humour is a rare jewel, and the strongest blade. Lord Savio is a force with words and presence.
    Desma He can drink. That's for absolute certain. You got to respect him for that.
    Dio Energetic, gregarious and a superb musician whose genius shines brightly in improvisation.
    Domonico Capable in a fight and not a slouch when it comes to working on a ship either.
    Drake Like me he's the younger brother, and I know what it's like to deal with that. He's probably used to rolling with the punches.
    Drusila There is something about his charm that is truly infectious.
    Duarte A kindred spirit in many regards, I'm sure. If I were awkward among my peers we might act the same even.
    Elora He seems to be a very nice man. He's warm and gregarious, and he doesn't make me do all the talking.
    Ember Excellent hair. He has other good qualities, as well, but truly excellent hair.
    Erik At the Soiree the time was too short to learn more about the man, now I got to see him fight and gone was the social courtier and a skilled fighter emergend
    Esme Always ask. I would be happy to share more, but please, always ask. It is hard to be in a position of love for one that will probably not be yours as you desired. We focus not on the ending, but on the moment. The moment we live in. The moment we breath. For now is the only certain time we are given. The rest are shrouded mists upon our paths. I am sure though, we shall meet yet again.
    Evaristo An old adventuring buddy - glad to see him in Arx, and glad to see he still kicks arse. What an adventure!
    Evelynn A talented bard from what I'm hearing. I look forward to future meetings.
    Faye An eccentric merchant and broker of fine wares. A pleasant man to chat with, and I'll likely go to him when I'm looking for something in particular.
    Fortescue One of Medeia's friends who I didn't meet properly until recently, when we encountered one another at the Trader's Tavern. He's certainly likeable! Engaging, funny and easy to talk to. On the other hand, I am not sure I will ever be able to look at him in quite the same way after watching him try that foul looking drink of Zakhar's.
    Gabriella Charming by nature and impossible to anger, annoyingly so. He's good friends with Raven, so that means I can trust him to a good degree.
    Gehenna I do believe that encountering this Lord has been one of the most interesting tests of my diplomatic career.
    Giada Another young man who took the name of the nobility. This one seems well suited to its demands, and I daresay that he'll excel.
    Giorgio My dear younger brother. I wonder sometimes what caused our paths to fork. At times I see our likeness, and then at others our glaring differences. Were our parents too hard on him when we were children? Or did I simply outshine him so much in the eyes of our parents, that I caused his path myself? Perhaps a new city will provide a new start for him.
    Giorgio My dear brother. He is as impulsive as ever, but he has grown since we've come to the city. I'll never tell it to him, but I am proud of him. He's done our family well.
    Grady There's a hint of the wary animal about him, but nobody reasonable could blame him for that.
    Graziella I found his nicest shirt discarded on a bench in Pravus ward... he really should watch his drinking, he might almost be charming if he did...
    Gwenna Lord Savio Amadeo is a bright and charming personality, clearly meant for the creative endeavors in life. He seems to literally light up a room and his joy is quite infectious. Even the weight of nobility does not seem to dim that flame, but neither does that flame shy away from the duty and responsibility, I suspect. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the near future.
    Haakon Funny fucker. Glad no body stabbed him.
    Hadrian He is a Prodigal with many concerns to give a voice. They are legitimate concerns of course and he understands that to speak them too loudly, in the wrong company, could quite likely be detrimental for himself. Despite that caution, it's obvious that there are matters which he feels passionate about and wishes to see resolved or remedied. He possesses enough wit to him that he understands it's not something that will likely ever change by force of arms. I sense that he recognizes it is hearts and minds that he'll have to sway to his way of thinking. Which is the path that will yield results that persist a greater, if not indefinite, period of time.
    Ian I don't get to fight against people with classical training very often. It's a nice change.
    Ilira He is an original, one of those souls that lights up a room even before he's in it. I don't know if you fully realize what a wonder it was for me to meet you, my friend, but you've brightened my world! I only hope, now, you'll stay in it.
    Isabeau He reminds me a little of his brother, but a bit more lively. He's a very enthusiastic dancer as well.
    Jadara Charming, dangerous, and a force to be reckoned with. Death hidden behind a bard's humor but there is a complexity to him that begs to be explored.
    Jasher I am aware that Lord Savio has lost much in his lifetime – too much. Knowing this, I can better understand why his marriage was simultaneously a peerless blessing and a source of apprehension. When one has felt the pain of categorical loss, every gain becomes that much more invaluable, impossible to live without. I sense that he is a fierce protector, does not lack for conviction, and takes pride in his qualities and skills, and the culture that has shaped him. I wish him nothing but fortunate days to come.
    Katarina He says that he would not throw a pineapple at a royal. I am not especially certain that I believe him.
    Keely Gracious and welcoming, even when people crash through his somgwriting sessions. Literally.
    Klaus A playwrite willing to fight, color me impressed
    Kritr Asking the right questions.
    Lasha He a soft one, but he's good hearted, and if he breaks Orland's heart I might break his legs.
    Liam Charm, sophistication and with a quick jab. Good cheer to his voice when he speaks.
    Lianne Capable command of a crowd. Self-assured. Actually funny.
    Liara He appears to be a new arrival to Arvum, going by the accent and the polite manner interspersed with some unusual suggestions in conversation. I dare say he will do just fine, given a little guidance.
    Lore Squeamish for someone that looks to be from the Lowers. Time should change that.
    Lot He is a strange, smiling little man. ALSO, HE IS A BARD AND A POET. No doubt his money came from marriage.
    Lottie A man who sings me a very sweet song in the first few minutes we've met is a man I'm surely going to like. Plus, I won him a bet! Yay, me! And him!
    Lou Lord Savio seems well informed with regard to Saffron matters of history and Lou finds herself considering him one of the chief folk she might go to should she have any questions.
    Lucie A man capable of simultaneously answering a question and creating a new one with just a few words.
    Lucrezia A bard? Another I will pester for stories.
    Lustry A very talented bodyguard who I may attempt to make my protege. His talent is immensely impressive.
    Mabelle Entertaining and does not seem to shy from challenges. That is the recipe for good company.
    Mailys His presence changes a space and a mood. There are few capable, fewer bold enough, and fewer still that manage to juggle confidence they way he does. I hope he keeps his lucky charm close.
    Marena I don't know that he truly believes he is fooling anyone when he downplays himself.
    Maris Ended up liking this fella a lot more than I thought I would when he started gawking at me. The honesty must be refreshing, no matter how aimless. Generous, talkative, pretty amusing. I wonder if his brother would have any opportunities for me.
    Mark It's interesting and sometimes heartbreaking to see what choices we make to survive.
    Marzio One from the Saffron Chain. I haven't had a chance to meet many of the islanders, but this one fights well. He seems to be able to take care of himself and isn't bad company.
    Mattheu A curiously wonderful person that is able to come up with song and ridicule rhyme upon the spot.
    Medeia The man has a way of communicating that is at once engaging and distracting - in the best way. I can easily lose hours of my day sharing drink and discussion with someone like him.
    Mikani A man of words. Many many words. How does he use them all?
    Mirk An interesting individual, that is for sure, one who does not hesitate to act when he feels it warranted.
    Monique There's so much more to Savio than I think anyone guesses. And because he doesn't like to talk about it you have to see through the surface to the deep troubled waters below. But once you do, there's a man there who is beyond imagining; flawed and beautiful.
    Nazmir Lord Savio is most certainly not one would expect and for this, I am truly impressed. He balances worry free care with duty in a spectacular fashion and his company is an absolute delight to be in.
    Nina A reliable friend to the house as a merchant. But also a talented bard and comedian! He really did shine on stage.
    Noah This... Neo seems to use a lot of words to say very little and does seem to put the ass in assumption. However, he's also rumored to be a champion so that makes him passingly useful. Passingly.
    Ophne A green thumb with an apptitude for arrangements - and deflowering. Specialties? Hibiscus, most pointedly. She would return again to see more in the future.
    Orick It was my pleasure to help him craft his One of a Kind scent in such a unique way... and for such a unique individual, I hope they come into the shop together one day-- would love to meet them both.
    Orland I liked him. Until he left me in the woods. But then he came back, sort of redeemed himself there.
    Oswyn A wondrous talent for impromptu songs, a keen wit and a sharp mind. Also apparently I'm not to bullshit him. I can't ever imagine why I'd try. Wonderful taste in tea.
    Pasquale Forged in struggle.
    Patrizio A bard with a true gift for song. I envy his ability with his talent, and may the gods grant him a long, fruitful road ahead of him by its virtue.
    Petal He seems very friendly and easy going. I don't know much about him yet, but I think that maybe he was a commoner once and became a noble? I would like to hear his story. He is welcoming, warm and a thoughtful host. I hope to hear him perform one day!
    Piccola The younger of the Pontelaeus brothers is a man of excellence with poetry. I do wish I had a better appreciation for such arts: I can understand when I hear skill, but to discern the value of the same is beyond my skill. Ah well.
    Poppy A new lord, but one full of mirth and spirit. His company is delightful but I hope the compact doesn't break these things from him.
    Porter Council?? Approval?? I'm not sure I really understand what's going on. But he was damn funny.
    Quenia He has quite a talent for twist words into a poem or song. It makes me wonder if he might one day work with my cousin, Lucita.
    Raimon A man who's seen his world crack and shatter. Maybe more than once. How can I help him?
    Raja A prodigal from a prodigal family. He speaks my language. Perhaps our families can broker some trade agreements to bolster each other.
    Remus I think I frightened poor Savio with my confused mind. I was tempted to tell him about the blow to the head, but really it was too funny. That said, I really ought to talk to him about all I have forgotten. It might help put him at ease.
    Renata Charming and vastly entertaining, the man seems to be a Bard of some skill. I do like amusement.
    Renata He is one of my most favorite people to share conversation with in all of the Compact. Sweet, caring and considerate Lord Savio is a man of many layers. An excellent bard and even more so, a wonderful friend. I truly cherish his advice and our talks whether long or short. If you make a friend of him, he is surely not to disappoint.
    Ripley He is without a doubt something, wait no not something, he's someone. Without a doubt he is someone that actually gives a damn about others. Clearly. Man should be on a pedestal. Or like, a really big plinth. No, no, he needs to be put on the top of a mountain. He deserves all of my mum's biscuits.
    Romulius Lord Proscipi is every bit as creative and colorful as his reputation would suggest. While it is impossible for me to truthfully say that I am taken by his unique sort of 'charm', his heart is true enough and he is a steadfast ally to have beside you in battle.
    Rook Too bad all of his good stuff is in black journals. Gonna have to wait until he dies I guess.
    Rosalind We met at a meeting regarding, well--prodigals! It was nice to have someone speak the same views. He seems a pretty nice man to have around!
    Rosemary I bet he is the life of the room everywhere he travels. I love his style, only the bold can pull of such an outfit and make it look so good. He is definitely marked as a 'pro' for Giorgio.
    Rufio Everything anyone's heard about me is true. Thanks to Savio.
    Rufio Is there really anything that hasn't been said about my cousin? The man has went through bloody hell to have the family he wants. A loving father, a fighter, a poet, with just a touch of eccentricity that makes him interesting. A drinking partner and someone I would always have at my back. I love him and would follow with him anywhere.
    Sabella If a man is a projectile, then this man is a fantastic projectile. He makes quite the splash!
    Sabriel Okay so I only know that he has a talent for pissing people off apparently? More Tremorous people coming in and I don't know what his deal is. Andromeda thinks we'll be good drinking buddies so he might know how to have a good time, will have to see if he holds his liquor as well as she suspects... could be fun to drink him under the table though sometime.
    Sabriel If I have to be on the mainland, at least I have his obnoxious ass to keep things entertaining.
    Samira He strikes me as the type who says exactly what he's thinking, appropriate or not, and that's something I can appreciate. Amiable in conversation, dangerous with a blade in hand. One to watch.
    Scylla Finally, I meet the gregarious Savio, who more than exceeded what expectations I had for his character formed solely from what others have so courteously said of him. He's the opposite of me in every way, but as far as I'm concerned, that's a good thing. I look forward to basking in his company in future.
    Scythia Very rarely do I meet someone that it is so easy to be comfortable around. How curiously dangerous.
    Sebastian A bard, glib of tongue and quick of wit. He's certainly caught Raven's eye, which means I'll be keeping a closer eye on him as well, even if he weren't my protege's brother.
    Seia He has his pain to bear, but who doesn't these days? He was helpful to me. He has a nice voice. I'll have to catch one of his performances.
    Sira Such a fine storyteller, if one accepts nontraditional delivery of stories. It helps that he looks gorgeous in anything - even muck.
    Sloane That tune you can't remember the words to but will hum the rest of your life.
    Sorrel His love for his home in the Saffron Isles comes through in his music. He makes it sound wonderful, and I would love to just sit and listen to him play his mandolin.
    Sudara Would 'charmingly gauche' be appropriate? Certainly not so socially hopeless as he fears, though perhaps he *would* be well-advised to be careful around more staid branches of the nobility. Certainly, when he relaxes into a topic with which he is familiar, his competence shines through.
    Svana Poncy, but likes snakes. My kind of person, and he's hilarious. Oh, I bet he has stories for days!
    Sydney A spring in his step, a quip on his lips, and a song sure to follow. After seeing the way he fights, however, those talents seem almost secondary. Would that I were so quick-witted, but then I might be at risk for becoming a bard as well.
    Thea Every time I see him, he seems to be injured somehow. He most definitely keeps me busy. But he is definitely plesent enough an cerntaily stubborn. You have to be to continue to survive all the injuries he seems to sustain.
    Theophania A delightful host, and a radiant groom. In the light of his happiness, the whole day was brightened.
    Valencia Talented and very charming. His playful zest and zeal is very welcome in my Hart. I'm glad to have met him and to have enjoyed his bardic skills.
    Vanora A bard connected to my Pravosi family, and quite gifted as I'm told. I wonder how much we have in common.
    Vayne A Lord of the Saffron Isles that seems to have quite a bit of potential. He is not afraid of critique, and seems quite interested in discourse on theological matters. I'm very interested in seeing where he goes.
    Vitalis He saved my life and considers there to be no debt, accepting only a hand in friendship. I'll have to think of something...
    Viviana An individual as unique as the weapon he wields. Seriously -- have you seen it?!
    Wylla An artist whose soul is weight on by so much more than what he creates. I hope one day that he speaks to me on it, or finds a good heart to confide in.
    Zakhar Is amazing at talking himself into a corner that is hard to get out of.
    Zoey A charmer! And an entertainer down to the core of his being, I will wager. Fantastic at parties.
    Zoya He's the excitable sort - which is probably going to kill him some day. It would be a shame, he seems moderately entertaining.
    Zyxthylum Sings to fish, likes my style? Welcome to lay low in my any time.
