Father Sambar was a priest of Shar posing a priest of Mystra at the false Temple of Mystra in Wheloon, Cormyr, in the Year of Lightning Storms, 1374 DR.[1]

Father Sambar was the first to pass through the Shadow Gate, a portal to the Plane of Shadow intended to provide a shortcut for the Sharrans' operations.[1] However, the portal was a failure: all Sambar's clothing, skin, and flesh simply misted away as shadow. His gruesome death was seen as a sacrifice to Shar.[2] However, the temple guard accompanying him survived, becoming a dark creature, the first of the shadow guards.[1]

Sambar's bones were left heaped around the altar, the first of many,[2] and his quarters remained empty.[1]
