I used to believe that knowledge was strength. I always strove for more, to learn as much as possible about the universe around me...but now...now I know better. To know too much, to know of things that no one was ever meant to see, is to be damned!

Savant the Goetian (pronounced "suh-VAHNT") is the last surviving member of a highly intelligent, psychokinetic race known as the Goetians, who were all destroyed, along with their home planet, by a primordial being known as Ghroth the Harbinger.

He is the main character of The Harbinger Cometh series.

Physical Description

Savant's physical appearance, particularly his build, is somewhat based upon the goetia demon from the Newgrounds' flash Death's Curtain Ep. 2 (in fact, his species is called "Goetian"). However, he has a much more animalistic/alien face (somewhat resembling a Sergal), with two pairs of long, tufted "ears", with the lower pair much longer and hanging down, a long, thick tail and a strong yet lithe body frame, as well as clawed footpaws and Palkia-esque wings on his back. He is covered almost completely in short, silvery fur, except for the front half of his forearms, which are rounded "blades" that extend over his paws. They are in fact extensions of the bones in his wrists. He also has red eyes and long, messy hair that is a dark grayish-blue in color.

History

Under construction.

Childhood

Savant was born on the distant planet Kynarth, accessible only through the black hole Azathoth, which is actually a wormhole. He was raised to be a scholar (the Goetians were highly intelligent and valued education). He enjoyed learning, and was known amongst his people as a "bright spark of intellect", even at such a young age.

When Savant was in his pre-teen years, a huge, dark planetoid was spotted in the skies of Kynarth. It was unnaturally close to the planet, yet the Goetians felt they had no reason to fear. Savant himself was highly interested in the mysterious planet, which seemed to slowly move closer to Kynarth every day. He took it upon himself to study this new celestial neighbor through any means necessary. Unfortunately, he learned very little.

Destruction of Kynarth

Two weeks later, Savant realized the true intentions of the mysterious planetoid when a massive red eye suddenly appeared on its surface. Pitch black tentacles, each as thick as a skyscraper and of seemingly infinite length, emerged from its dark surface, and began to engulf Kynarth. Everything the tentacles touched, be it a building, a tree, or even an unfortunate civilian, slowly began to decay, with the remnants being drawn into the tentacles; the planetoid was literally devouring Kynarth.

Fleeing from The Harbinger

Savant's parents, Tarkus and Sarjana, knowing that the end of their civilization was near, decided to send their son to another sentient planet in order to save his life. They had him go inside of a special pod that was programmed to travel through the wormhole Azathoth and head for the nearest sentient planet. Savant at first refused to go, saying that he would not leave his family behind. Sadly, there was only one pod, which could only fit one passenger. Savant's parents' eventually convinced him to flee to safety, and he left with a heavy heart.

After his pod crash-landed on Earth, which was the nearest sentient planet to Azathoth (but still quite far), Savant, scared and confused, stumbled from the wreckage. He made it a point to avoid contact with the resident sentient race, and began his new life, alone.

  • Tarkus the Goetian - Savant's now deceased father, and his biggest mentor. It was Tarkus that taught his son all he knew about their world, their philosophy and the stars above.
  • Sarjana the Goetian - Savant's now deceased mother, he got his (former) calm personality from her. When he was much younger, Sarjana would tell him stories and fables of the heavens, some of which may actually be true. Savant keeps his mother and her stories close to his heart.

Rivals

Enemies

  • Ghroth the Harbinger - The being that destroyed his home planet and everything he cared about, Savant's hatred for The Harbinger burns terribly in his soul. He's spent most of his time researching anything he can on Ghroth, trying to find some way to kill it permanently. So far, the Goetian's been unsuccessful in his quest. Naturally, however, Savant has no idea that Ghroth is one of the Balance Keepers, and the Manifestation of Planetary Balance.

Personality

Before Ghroth destroyed his people and his home, Savant was a calm and philosophical being, always interested in learning.

After finding the Book of All, he became cold and distant, wrought with sorrow and fury over the destruction of his people and his hatred towards Ghroth. He envies other sentient races, for the fact that they aren't the last of their kind. He is also angered by their blatant ignorance of Ghroth.

He's generally uncaring and apathetic, and prefers to be alone.

Quotes

Why, Watcher?! Why did that foul beast destroy my home...?!
It was merely performing its god-given task.
And what 'task' is that, may I ask...?!
Quite simply, to keep planetary balance. Even things greater than we have an ultimate purpose, however malevolent they may seem to us.
And you're content with the eventual destruction of this planet?!
No. But this is simply the natural order of things.
