Savione was the chief courtier of King Adelbern before the Foefire, who, upon discovering that Adelbern was planning on using the Foefire, tried to stop him, but was fatally stabbed with a dagger just before the charr assault of Ascalon City in 1090 AE. Moments before his death, Savione recounted what happened to Frye Fireburn, leader of an elite warband of charr called the Fireshadows, who had found him bleeding under a table in one of the king's rooms. Because Savione had been killed before the Foefire, he did not return as a single-minded Ascalonian ghost; instead, he was stuck in Tyria as a ghost due to unfinished business with Adelbern, and thus remained the only helpful ghost in the region.
After the Foefire, the spectral Savione made maps of Ascalon City, with a detailed account of the treasures in the royal treasury. These scraps of papers were released in the wind with the hope that someone would find them and take revenge for him. In 1324 AE, Savione helped Dougal Keane in finding the Claw of the Khan-Ur. He confronted the enraged Adelbern to buy Dougal's guild more time to retrieve the Claw, and ultimately passed on into the Mists once the king had stabbed him with the dagger he had pulled out of the ghostly courtier's chest.
