The most reliable biography of Syovar the Strong, “Lives” by Fuzbo Glort (written sometime after 972 GUE), provides an excellent portrait of how Syovar was viewed by his near-contemporaries, and also provides an admirable summary of the period from the fall of the Empire to the end of the First Age of Magic. Although it is in fact of dubious reliability as an historical source, it is one of the few works that have survived those dangerous times to reach our modern eyes. However, the last page of the only surviving manuscript had been blotted out and covered with scribbled images of granola chunks and oversize yipples, and thus the eventual fate of Syovar is uncertain.
