Character details

I think it's a stretch to assume this character was a Dark wizard simply because his name appears on a trunk at Borgin and Burkes in CS/f. Borgin and Burkes doesn't just deal in Dark artifacts, but is also something of a pawnbroker and antiques dealer, because Burke bought Merope Gaunt's necklace for less than its real worth and hired Tom Riddle to buy items from collectors like Hepzibah Smith. So it's possible Savill was forced to pawn his belongings for a few quick Galleons like Merope, or that the trunk and its contents were passed down to and sold by his child, grandchild, etc. sometime after his death.

I'd say that the same goes for his blood status. Borgin expressed a belief in pure-blood supremacy, but if he was a shrewd businessman, I'm sure he wouldn't turn away a chance to make money from a Muggle-born wanting to sell or buy something. Starstuff (Owl me!) 20:20, June 18, 2011 (UTC)

It's a stretch to even assume George Savill is a person. It could just as easily be the company responsible for crafting the trunk. This wiki is getting more and more ridiculous. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.147.148.39 (talkcontribs) 21:09, June 18, 2011.

You're right about the possibility of "George Savill" being a trunk-making company. Since that company presumably would've been founded by a man with that name, though, I think it's fine for this to remain a character article.
Calling the wiki "ridiculous" isn't helpful. If you see anything here that strikes you as "off," for lack of a better term, feel free to change it or point it out on a talk page. Starstuff (Owl me!) 22:11, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
