Druxus Rhym was the Zulkir of transmutation within the Red Wizards of Thay[1].

Physical description[edit | edit source]

Druxus was a skinny, stork-legged man, with a weak chin and a bulge of flab at the waist-line. Tattoos covered his body.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Druxus wore many repositories of magic, such as rings, a silver-and-obsidian amulet around his neck, even the very tattoos on his body[2].

He had only to concentrate for his magical repositories to release their magic and bestow upon him Giant's Might, turn his attackers to stone or whisk himself across the realm to a place of safety[2].

History[edit | edit source]

An ally of Szass Tam[3], Rhym was a major proponent of trade over isolationism in Thay.[4]

Under Druxus Rhym's leadership, Thayan Red Wizard enclaves across the realms were selling amulets of resistance, making them common items circa 1372 DR. These amulets were relatively cheap to make and provided the Red Wizards with a significant source of profit.[5]

Death[edit | edit source]

Albeit his magical prowess, Rhym was assassinated in 1375 DR by an unknown assailant in his own bedroom[6]. His replacement as Zulkir is Samas Kul.[7]
