Susztam Mar-Shinn was a male drow illusionist and shadow adept. He was the Head Student of the Inverted Tower and a user of the Shadow Weave in Szith Morcane in the 14th century.[2]

DescriptionEdit

Uncommonly for a drow, Susztam appeared somewhat plump and seemed almost meek upon cursory inspection. He customarily wore dark shirts of grey and black trousers. Susztam wrapped himself in a spider-web pattern cloak of arachnida.[2]

PersonalityEdit

Although appearing less hardened than others of his race, Susztam Mar-Shinn was just as malicious and ambitious as the rest of his kin. Testament to this was his dream of eventually surpassing and taking over from his master, Solom Ned'razak, as archmage of the Inverted Tower.[2]

AbilitiesEdit

Noted as Solom Ned'razak's best student, Susztam was a skilled illusionist and also a practitioner of the Shadow Weave.[2] Since delving into the secrets of the shadow weave, his illusions were empowered by his understanding and noticeably harder to dispel.[4]

HistoryEdit

In 1354 DR, Susztam became the head student of the Inverted Tower under Solom Ned'razak's tutelage. At least until 1372 DR, during the Silence of Lolth and the coup of Szith Morcane by worshipers of Kiaransalee, Susztam maintained this position through careful preparations against any intruders.[2]
