Salem is a sylph. He was once a powerful Phantoms Warrior who was cursed, possibly after angering a powerful female Lorean. While he is still capable of moving and possessing objects and communicating, he is prevented from taking a physical form. He was bound to a dented copper bell that would summon him when rung. The bell has since been melted down by Queen Bettina of Abaddon and he is now free and at large.
Salem is invisible. Elder Female Loreans frequently describe him as dripping with sex appeal and "Notorious." although what he is notorious for is not elaborated. He speaks with a pronounced Cockney London accent.
