Biography

Savvas was born in the 1880s in Thessaloniki. He participated in an armed group at Olympus at the beginning of the Macedonian Struggle. He soon became a leader of a small group. There he met with Konstantinos Mazarakis-Ainian and at the end of 1905, Mazarakis asked him to move with his team in Mariovo after the damage the Greek bodies suffered there. There, expanding his body, he cooperated with Captain Theodosis, Captain Garefis and Em. Katsigaris. He acted in the area of Mariovo and Almopia throughout the Macedonian Struggle, persecuting the Bulgarian groups.
