Savant, real name Elyssa van Lendes, is a Senior Mystical Researcher (S.M.R for short) and chief librarian for the Temple Knights of Falador. She plays a fairly major role in two quests, namely Wanted!, where she aids the player by helping slow the teleports of the evil murder mage Solus Dellagar, and The Slug Menace, in which she briefs the player and saves him or her from being taken over by the Sea Slug queen Mother Mallum. She makes a very brief appearance during Quiet Before the Swarm and The Void Stares Back as well.
Savant's location is hidden, and she cannot be found in RuneScape, though the player communicates with her through the Temple Knight Commorb, which is given to the player by Sir Tiffy Cashien, the lead recruiter of the Temple Knights. When players ask her about herself, she would talk a bit about the Temple Knights' magical research team and herself.
She has a grudge against the Wizards' Tower, where she was denied entry because they thought she was "just a girl" and that she would be "too scared" to research effectively.
