Povralus is a servant mind located in the Ruined School during the events of Geneforge. He is hibernating after being abandoned by the Shapers over a century ago. His last instruction was to forget all information about the school and the events that happened that caused the evacuation of the island.
If the correct dialogue path is chosen, he will grant the player Firebolt, saying that is the last thing he remembers about the school.
Once he is talked to, the Ruined School can be passed through freely
