Revision as of 23:57, December 6, 2014

Zulkir is a title of power among the Red Wizards of Thay. There are eight zulkirs, one for each School of Magic; together they rule the Red Wizards and, by extension, Thay itself. They do not directly control the country, as the day-to-day governing is left to the tharchions. However, they have the ears of the tharchions and what the zulkirs want, they get. This truth explains many of the failures of Thay—as there is no one ruler of the Red Wizards, the constant in-fighting among the zulkirs often results in ruined plans.

Zulkirs hold their positions for life, or until he or she renounces the title. When a position opens, wizards of the same school of magic appoint the replacement, but often other zulkirs try to sway the election, making the appointment an intrigue-filled and ruthless event.

As of 1385 DR the current zulkirs are:

School of Magic Zulkir
Abjuration Lallara Mediocros (deceased)
Conjuration Nevron (deceased) [note 1]
Divination Yaphyll (deceased)[note 2]
Enchantment Lauzoril (deceased)
Evocation Kumed Hahpret [note 3]
Illusion Dmitra Flass (deceased)[note 4]
Necromancy Szass Tam [note 5]
Transmutation Samas Kul (deceased)[note 6]

All the remaining zulkirs were killed in 1478 DR while stopping Szass Tam's plan to destroy the multiverse and build it anew as he saw fit.[1]
