This article is about the character. For the song of the same name, see Marielda: Friends At The Table Soundtrack, The Interlude.Samothes, formerly known as Samotes, is a god in Hieron associated with invention and knowledge. He created the sun and his crown from a mountain of fire and separated Marielda from the mainland during his war against Samot.
Samothes is a brown-skinned man with slightly graying curly hair and a well-cropped beard. Austin has likened his appearance to the Indian-American actor Sendhil Ramamurthy.
When seen during The Crosstown Job, he wore an open robe, loose pants, and a simple golden crown.
Samothes is the god most frequently involved of the lives of the Friends at the Table player characters in Hieron, presiding over the city of Marielda and the Creed of Samothes, and granting supernatural abilities to Hadrian and Ephrim.
Tesday is named after him, based on the archaic form of his name.
Samothes was named by Art after a legendary figure of the same name, purportedly the grandson of the biblical Noah, who was credited in forged archaeological findings with first settling Britain after the great flood.
