Samardag the Hoper was a merchant on the Sword Coast just before the Tyranny of Dragons.[1]


Samardag, loyal to his moniker, always saw the good side of each situation. For him, the sky was always blue, the weather was always fine, and tomorrow would always be a better day. He could have been rich if not for his soft heart that led him to help anyone with a pitiful story.[1]


At the start of the Tyranny of Dragons in 1489 Samardag attached his wagon full of fragile porcelain to a great caravan that, unbeknownst to him, was full of Cult of the Dragon agents transporting treasures for the Hoard of the Dragon Queen.[1]
