Vysogota of Corvo
Vysogota of Corvo was a physician, surgeon, alchemist, researcher, historian, philosopher and ethicist, as well as a professor at both the Oxenfurt academy and the Imperial Academy. He was pursued and forced to flee, eventually creating a hermitage in the swamps of Pereplut.
It was in the swamp, that the old lecturer found Ciri, close to death. He took her back to his hermitage and nursed her back to health.

In The Witcher computer game[edit | edit source]
Zoltan Chivay can mention him during a rather philosophical conversation with Geralt: "If you want a scholar's word, read Vysogota of Corvo."
