The Shedai Sage held the combined wisdom and the living memory of the Shedai. It was his purpose to maintain a living history of his species and civilisation.
He was the second of the Serrataal to return to the First World after being awoken by the Shedai Wanderer in 2266. He sided with the Shedai Maker and the Wanderer against the Shedai Apostate, but was no match for him. The Sage fled the First World through a Conduit when the Apostate removed their world's star system from the universe. (VAN novel: Reap the Whirlwind)
