BiographyEdit

SvalbardEdit

Santelia received an invite to Svalbard to become the vice-chancellor of Iofur Raknison's planned university. Later he was defamed, according to him by P. Trelawney, and the bear king imprisoned him.[1]

In prison, he met Lyra Silvertongue and taught her about the culture of the Panserbjørne, giving her the information she needed to help Iorek Byrnison become king of Svalbard.[1]

Santelia later wrote a book about his experiences in Svalbard entitled A Prisoner of the Bears.[2]
