Savos Aren is the Dunmer Arch-Mage of The College of Winterhold in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Not much is known about Savos' early years, however dialogue with him reveals that he is at least one hundred years old, as he recalls he was only an apprentice at the college when the isle of Artaeum disappeared around 100 years before the Civil War in Skyrim.

Labyrinthian expedition

Sometime before the Dragonborn joined The College of Winterhold, Savos Aren followed an ill-fated group of mages through the Labyrinthian, led by the Arch-Mage's favorite pupil, Atmah. The trip resulted in the deaths of everyone present except Savos. In an attempt to seal away Morokei permanently, he forced two of the surviving mages to remain behind, magically enthralled and forced to maintain a barrier around the Dragon Priest.

As Arch-Mage

Savos returned to the College and took up the post of Arch-Mage, leading the other mages with an air that suggested that he believed that everything would eventually work itself out.



Hitting the Books

Returning from Saarthal after discovering the Eye of Magnus, Savos Aren awards the Dragonborn with a Mage's Circlet then sends them to retrieve several books from the Arcanaeum to learn more about the strange artifact.

The Staff of Magnus

Discovering that the Staff of Magnus is hidden at Labrynthian, the Dragonborn returns to the college, to find that Ancano has sealed himself in the Hall of the Elements with the Eye. With Mirabelle Ervine and the Dragonborn in tow, Savos breaks through the barrier he's erected. During the event, the Dragonborn is temporarily stunned. Upon waking, they find Mirabelle wounded in the Hall. She instructs them to search for Savos. In the courtyard, the other students surround his body, which was transported there by the combined effort of Ancano's magic and the Eye's power. While returning to Mirabelle , She gives the Dragonborn the Torc of Labyrinthian and Savos Aren’s Amulet, telling them to retrieve the Staff.

The Dragonborn succeeds Savos as the new Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold, after Mirabelle's death. Template:Endspoiler
