Baldur's Gate Wiki

Szass Tam is the Zulkir of Necromancy, one of the governing leaders of Thay[1].

Amongst the most powerful wizards in Faerûn, he is a 265 year old Lich that the Bhaalspawn will meet during Neera's Throne of Bhaal companion quest "Destroying the Order of Eight Staves". He also makes a brief appearance in a cutscene from The Black Pits II: Gladiators of Thay, as the secret patron of Dennaton's arena.


In his attempt to kill Gorion's Ward, he makes use of a legendary Ring of Three Wishes[2] and wishes for Double duration Time Stop + Improved Alacrity and eventually Rest.
