Lord Hugh Zosimus was a human nobleman from the city of Tyre. With his wife Sibylla Andronikos, he had one son, Gavin Zosimus, who would come to inherit his estate and later become councilor.

Hugh was described by his son as one who lived a "hollow" life, immersing himself in physical pleasures and focusing on making as much money as possible. It is implied he was a womanizer and a heavy drinker.

Despite this, he is credited as a self-made man, having made his family the richest in the kingdom.
