Sylvira Savikas was an archmage, sage, as well as one of the eight Great Readers Candlekeep during the late 15th century DR. Her laboratory was located within one of the library-fortresses' circular towers.
In the Year of Three Ships Sailing, 1492 DR,[note 1] Sylvira was approached by a group of adventurers that were investigating the infernal puzzle box that was owned by Thavius Kreeg, High Overseer of Elturel.
- Canon material provides two distinct dates for the events described in Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus: the adventure itself, described in chapters 1 through 5, takes place "fifty years" after 1444 DR (1494 DR), according to events mentioned in pages 7 and 47, while the Baldur's Gate Gazetteer describes the city as of 1492 DR (p. 159). It is possible that the designers made an approximation for "fifty years", even though it is stated in an infernal contract. The lead writer for Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus later confirmed that the adventure takes place in 1492 DR, and the sequel to the adventure, Baldur's Gate III, also claims that the current year is 1492 DR in multiple places.
