    So far plot. I do hope to this changes and he gets some real screen/page time cause so far we have seen to little for him to be a full blown character

    He has lines...



    He's a character, but i guess you could argue that he's both (but definitely more character than plot device)

    Both terms are not mutually exclusive, plot devices can be used in the form of a character, so he's both actually.

    ''A plot device is an object or character in the story whose purpose is purely to drive the Plot or resolve situations.''

    tvTropes.

    He's made an appearance, and even has lines.

    Anyways, read the earlier posts, you cant be a plot device without being a character so either way S06P = character.

    ''A plot device is an object or character in the story whose purpose is purely to drive the Plot or resolve situations.''

    tvTropes.
    Now unless you consider the sage an "object" then he's a character by definition.
