Fey Forest uprisingEdit

Samael is responsible for dispatching federation forces to quell the Fey uprising in Arcadia province. Leading to the discovery that the Scions of Lok were responsible for the conflict as well as inciting further unrest within the province.

Insanity EpidemicEdit

Shortly after events in Arcadia Samael sent soldiers including his adjutant Bruke To investigate a mysterious wave of madness in northern Poporia With the help of the ranger Jelena it was discovered that the madness was the result of local Vampirs working with the Scions of Lok to create stones known as Dementaliths. After a raid on the Vampirs' base in Sinestral Manor Samael declared Jelena a traitor to the federation and issued Bruke with an execution order.

Uncovering the TruthEdit

Samael then sent soldiers to deal with another group of cultists stationed within the Tenebrous Mines in the Val Aureum Province and deal with a notorious arms dealer named the Black Hood. However before dispatching them on this mission he secretly placed an enchantment to incite bloodlust on them. Due to timely intervention by Jelena the Black Hood, who was actually the federation hero Elleon survived the encounter and began to investigate Samael's suspicious activities.

Samael then dispatched Bruke and his Justicars to Ostgarath in secret. Elleon and his allies followed and discovered that Bruke was dealing with Gulas as well as members of the Scions of Lok on Samael's behalf. Elleon discovered that Samael was attempting to secure the Lance of Gidd from the Gulas with which he hoped to slay the goddess Velik in order to gain immortality and usurp her position as ruler of Velika.


Samael was confronted and slain in his mansion by federation soldiers led by Dougal after transforming himself into the demon Belsamael. Before his death Samael taunted Dougal and hinted at a possible link between the Scions of Lok and the Argons.
