"I am staring at the sky. Seeing a man grow out of the cliff. Sunlight rims his body like a halo. I think that Death has finally come for me. The man stands on the cliff with a book in his hand, staring down at the lagoon as if something made him sad. I wanted to call out to him. To tell him it was me he's come to find. And before I think to stand, he opens his book. Puts his hand on the page. And fades to dust." -Saavedro
"I see their bloated faces laughing at everything. I remember how they lied. I remember what they did. They brought me here to die. No one was waiting to perform the ritual Weaves. The fighting had torn my people apart. They didn't care. They didn't care. They wanted Narayan to die." -Saavedro
"The fog didn't find me this time. When I opened my eyes I was alone in a room. I was standing in the home of my betrayers. I couldn't move. I was afraid. I thought they'd know that I had come and would be waiting for me. Just like they had waited inside this very tusk. I was afraid they would tie me up again. That the poison snakes would strike. But the silence was unbroken. The whole house was still. And without really knowing what I did, I started to search." -Saavedro
"Is that what happened, Atrus? Safe in your beautiful new home, enjoying life with your dear wife and family. Did you become so busy envisioning new worlds that you forgot the ones you'd already created?" -Saavedro
"Twenty years, Atrus! Twenty -- long -- years -- alone! They tied me to a post! They burned their Myst linking books in front of me! They took everything I had! My wife! MY TWO BABY GIRLS! And then, when I finally made it back to Narayan, and I saw...I saw....It would have been better, if I had died." -Saavedro
The clothing that Saavedro wears is made from one of the word tapestries on Narayan.
