“...... The Lopto order does not tolerate traitors. That's the rule...”
—Salem, in Thracia 776

Salem is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. A Loptyrian Mage who is disillusioned with the ways of the Loptyrian Cult, he is a member of Perne's Dandelion Gang. Salem is the only playable dark magic user in Thracia 776.

ProfileEdit

Before Thracia 776Edit

Salem was once a devout member of the Loptyrian Cult. However, he reached a point where he began to grow disillusioned with their ways, and this was considered treasonous and punishable by death.

Fearing for his life, Salem attempted to flee, but he was caught and attacked before being left for dead. He would have died if not for Perne, who rescued him and tended to his injuries.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776Edit

Salem first appears in Chapter 12, where he urges Perne to let him stand as sentry for the Dandelion Gang's hideout in Dakia Forest. Not knowing the identity of Leif's army as it passes through the forest, he attacks it with a Sleep Staff on hand. Leif's army eventually defeats Salem and captures him, and gets him to join its ranks.

If Salem is chosen to accompany the group who heads into the Dandelion Gang's hideout in Chapter 12x, he requests for Leif to let him speak to Perne. He explains that Leif's liberation army shares the same ideals as the Dandelion Gang, and Perne thus decides to lend his aid to them.

Salem then goes on to continue supporting Leif in his cause to liberate Northern Thracia from the Grannvale Empire. He retires to a small rural village thereafter, where he pens memoirs of his life. The documents he produces will prove to be valuable for historians in the future to understand the workings of the Church of Loptous.

PersonalityEdit

Salem is portrayed as calm and collected, expressing no fear as he personally spearheads the defence of the Dandelion Gang's hideout in Chapter 12.

Salem is also known to be loyal to Perne, displaying his gratitude to the thief for rescuing him in his time of need by choosing to work as his subordinate. This is despite Perne urging him to rest in view of him not having fully recovered from his injuries.

Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.

Salem may not come with the greatest stats or stat growths (so make sure to give him some growth boosting scrolls like the Heim or Sety Scroll), but he is unique among all the characters that you run across due to the fact he can use dark magic. He also can use staves and Anima magic so he brings uniqueness and versatility to those who use him.

The only Dark tomes Salem can use are Jormungand and Fenrir, as all other Dark Tomes are enemy only and become Fenrir when stolen. Also, the Jormungand Dark Tome will not poison enemies when used by Salem.

Salem attempts to make up for the poorness of Dark Tomes with high Anima and Staff Weapon Ranks, and if one is able to obtain a Fenrir for him, it is easily the best long range tome in the game, so all is not lost with Dark magic.

EndingsEdit

Thracia 776 Edit

Salem - The Dark Magician (暗黒魔道士 Ankoku madō-shi)

"After the war, Salem retired to a small rural village and began writing memoirs of his life. His documents proved to be valuable resources for future historians to understand what the Lopto Church was really like."

EtymologyEdit

Salem could have been named after the village in Massachusetts where the infamous 1692 witch-hunt trials took place.

Salem, incidentally, is also the setting of Arthur Miller's The Crucible, where he retells the events of the witchcraft trials in the form of a play.
