Sedegressus was a dragonborn sage and philosopher. He was born a slave and lived in sophosium until his banishment. His teachings were written down and published by his pupil Miruphon in his Discourses.

Philosophy, Sedegressus taught, is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. To Sedegressus, all external events are determined by fate, and are thus beyond our control; we should accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately. However, individuals are responsible for their own actions, which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline.

Suffering occurs from trying to control what is uncontrollable, or from neglecting what is within our power. As part of the universal city that is the universe, it is our duty to care for all our fellow men. Those who follow these precepts will achieve happiness and peace of mind.
