Savolla is the mage who accompanied the Professor and Azar Javed during the attack on Kaer Morhen. He was powerful enough to control a frightener, but even that did not save him from death in the hands of Γκέραλτ, or Triss/Eskel, depending on one's choice.
Like other Salamandra mages, he prefers to let the non-magical ranks deal with the actual crossing of swords and wielding of weapons while he hangs back using magic to summon all sorts of extra foes and effects. Savolla is more powerful than many of his brethren, so his displays are more impressive. His counterparts are more fond of summoning ifrits.
- According to Triss Merigold, Savolla's "ambitious and insane".
