Fabio Sachs was an explorer and former clerk at the Giancardi Bank in Gors Velen.

Named after his father, Fabio was short and freckle-faced, with wavy chestnut hair which fell onto the high collar of his grey uniform.[1]


Meeting Ciri[]

In June 1267, while working at the bank, Fabio was tasked by Molnar Giancardi to guide the young girl Ciri around the city, to keep her busy while Yennefer and Molnar spoke. At first, while going down Kardo Street, they saw The Unlaced Corset and the town hall. After they went through the fish market and viewed Thanedd Island from the city walls, Fabio treated Ciri to some doughnuts from the marketplace and they wandered around, taking in the sights and wares. He told Ciri of his keen desire to travel the world and Ciri's innate magical ability foresaw that he would, indeed, become a great and famous explorer, though she didn't tell him so. When they happened upon a fake "basilisk" on display, he proved a loyal friend to Ciri by not telling of how it was actually she that killed the wyvern after it broke out and not the squire as everyone believed. Despite his efforts, the crowd blamed Ciri for angering the creature and so the two were forced to flee, running into Tissaia de Vries and Margarita Laux-Antille, who believed her a novice of nearby Aretuza. Tissaia put a paralysing spell on Ciri while Fabio attempted to help, stopped by Margarita. After Fabio revealed her identity, they all went back to the bank, and while Ciri spoke with the sorceresses, Molnar lectured Fabio for getting her into trouble.[1]

His likely first map

Later during the Third Northern War in 1272, he published a map of the Pontar Delta, Velen, Kaer Morhen valley and Skellige based on scripts he found in the Oxenfurt Academy archives.[2]

Later Life[]

After some time, he became a great and famous explorer, traveling to previously uncharted parts of the world and even had island colonies[3] and a cape of the yet-unnamed continent named in his honor. However at the start of the 14th century, he would die alone, far from his wife, son, three daughters, and loved ones at the age of 54 from a disease for which a name still did not exist.[1]
