The Sage himself is an astrologer from an "ancient civilization." The Sage, with a mind towards protecting the world of Black Desert, created Atoraxxion, the new dungeon recently showcased as part of the 5-year anniversary of Black Desert in the West.
The developers showcased the Sage in a recent commentary video, givng a glimpse into how the Sage operations in Black Desert. Using the Kyve, the Sage seemingly can distort the space around him, using explosive attacks like Spatial Collapse, which opens a rift above an area and collapses it down on the heads of enemies in front of him.
