Volo is an NPC in Baldur's Gate 3. Volo can be first found at the Druid Grove, after the assault by goblin forces. Volo is a writer that tends to exaggerate a little about the real facts that happen around him. There is a massive amount of NPCs in Baldur's Gate 3, and their ideals, needs and way of living are strictly related to the actions they perform during the course of the game. Their attitude towards you and your party may be affected by the deeds and decisions you and your party taken on.

At the Druid Grove
Volo will be found talking to a bear, interact with him and he will gladly ask you details about the goblin group that attempted to raid the grove. He will mention that this group of Goblins was yelling about the Absolute, something strange because they usually worship Maglubiyet. This will lead Volo to the Goblin Camp to learn more about this situation.
At the Goblin Camp
Volo will be found performing against his will at the center of the Goblin Camp. When he sees your party, he gets incredibly nervous and is taken inside the Shattered Sanctum.
At the Shattered Sanctum
Volo will be on a cage, while being guarded by Gribbo. Talk to her and you can convince her to give you the key. Once freed, you can invite Volo to your camp. He takes a Potion of Invisibility and leaves.
At the Camp
When you meet him at the camp, he will give you the Blazer of Benevolence for freeing him. After a few conversations, if you tell him about the tadpole in your head. He affirms he can help you, and his unorthodox methods costs you an eye. This leaves you with a condition called Volo's Experimental Treatment that gives you -1 to Intelligence, disadvantage to Perception checks and cannot make critical hits. However, he will also give you Volo's Ersatz Eye, a one-time use item that mitigates the effects of the condition inflicted by Volo.

Weird thing happened on my last playthrough:
I stealth killed the guards in his cell and as soon as I freed him, he drank his invisibility potion and screamed "Thief" and "Murderer" to the gobbo camp -- had every goblin aggro me at that point :P
With patch 5 the colors of his outfit have changed, now he's all white and blue.
After a while in your camp he'll ask you if he can try someyhing, he'll then try to extract the worm by pushing an icepick through your eye, if you agree until the end, you'll lose an eye, he'll then give you a fake one (no effect for the moment), and you'll get a permanent malus on your detection and will be unable to perform any critical hit, that's like the worst permanent effect in the whole game at the moment, but the whole thing is quite fun
He'll also leave your camp (to find something to help you maybe, idk), and your companions will disapprove
He's also at the druids grove talking to a bear when you first arrive there
