Samar Dev was a scholar, inventor, and witch from Seven Cities.[1][2] Although primarily an inventor, she would not release an invention, however valuable, unless she determined that it could not be used abusively. Consequently, she shelved most of her inventions.[3] She bound spirits to her knife. Samar Dev was described as "a woman with ample womanly charms" and older by a decade, maybe more, than Cutter (as observed by him).

In The Bonehunters Edit
