Samael grew up in a small village until his family and neighbors were slaughtered by a band of orc raiders. He was able to escape and survived for days. When he couldn’t manage anymore, he was led to a hut by a white owl. This hut belonged to the witch Olikea, who lived near Gadder’s Gamble and was the town’s herbalist.

Olikea recognized a talent for witchcraft in the young boy and Samael learned how to use ingredients for potions and poultices and how to cast basic spells. Samael’s magical patron is the Moon and the owl that led him to the hut has become his trusted familiar, Isho.

From the books he secretly read when he was still living with his parents, Samael has an extensive knowledge of myths and fairy tales. He also has a romantic notion of becoming a lycanthrope one day, able to become one with the moon and nature.
