Samas Kul was the zulkir of transmutation within the Red Wizard of Thay, since his predecessor's death in 1375 DR, and master of the nation's Guild of Foreign Trade during the 14th century DR.[3]


Samas was tall and obese,[1] and wore tent-like begemmed, costly robes. He spoke with a plummy, unctuous voice.[4]


Cultivating an air of being cultured, the ambitious Samas was known for his particularly cutting sarcasm and cynical manner.[1] He was quite the brilliant man, extremely ambitious and exorbitantly wealthy.[2]


Samas wore a ring of protection which bestowed upon him a protective aura invisible as air but strong as steel. He also had a wand of polymorphing, cast from quicksilver.[3]


The corpulent red wizard employed the twin, tiefling warlocks, Tolyst and Finora as spies and agents who would intimidate his trade rivals in Bezantur.[citation needed]


For many years, Samas Kul was a strong and trusted ally of the lich Szass Tam. Samas replaced Druxus Rhym in Mirtul 1375 DR as zulkir following Rhym's assassination.[5] As Szass Tam tried to seize lone rulership of Thay by force later that year, Samas allied with Dmitra Flass' council to stand against Szass' armies.[6]
