Aznar Thrul, Zulkir of Evocation, Tharchion of Priador, was one of the eight rulers of Thay and its Red Wizards.[3]


An exceedingly cruel and evil man, he was the greatest rival of the lich Szass Tam, Zulkir of Necromancy.[1]


He was originally trained in the Art at Blackstaff Tower by Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun.[4] In his youth, Thrul bargained with Kossuth, god of fire, to aid the Red Wizards during the Salamander War. Their victory led to the capture of the Priador march and the appointing of Thrul as its tharchion.[3]

In the wake of becoming the tharchion of Priador, Aznar Thrul captured the former tharchion Mari Agneh and kept her as his slave and sexual play-thing.[5] In 1375 DR, Mari was transformed by the blood fiend Tsagoth into his likeness and finally killed Thrul.[6]

Aznar Thrul's position as Zulkir of Evocation remained filled for a time.[5]



On page 278 of the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting 3rd edition, Aznar is quoted as being chaotic evil, but in a later book, Unapproachable East, page 168, he is lawful evil. It also changes two of his archmage levels to epic wizard levels.
