Samas Kul is the Zulkir of Transmutation since his predecessor's death in 1375 DR within the ranks of the Red Wizards of Thay and ally of Szass Tam. He is also the master of the thayan Guild of Foreign Trade.[1]


Samas is obese and wears tentlike begemmed, costly robes. He speaks with a plummy, onctuous voice.[2]

Magical Items

Samas wears a Ring of protection bestowing upon him a protecitve aura invisible as air but strong as steel. He also has a wand of congealed quicksilver that can change an adversary into something harmless like a snail.[1]


Twin tiefling warlocks work covertly for Samas Kul , Master of the Guild of Foreign Trade in Bezantur. The corpulent red wizard uses the warlocks known as Tolyst and Finora to spy on and intimidate his trade rivals. Tolyst is easily recognized by his large fangs, wolfish grin, and orange eyes. Finora can be identified by her catlike tail and yellow cat's eyes.

Samas replaced Druxus Rhym in 1375 DR as zulkir following Rhym's assassination.[3] As Szass Tam tried to seize lone rulership of Thay by force, Samas allied with Dmitra Flass's council to stand against Szass's armies.
