Vysogota of Corvo
— pg(s). 159, The Tower of the Swallow (UK edition)
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. Eventually, after Ciri had regained her health and decided to venture back out into the world, Vysogota died alone on the floor of his hut, with a banshee screaming in the distance
