Brief History: The daughter of a male djinn and a female nomad from the Dragon Sands of the R'Kesh, Salome was taken from her mother at birth and sold to slavers. Her mother, a married woman, was stoned to death for her crime of adultery. The child was brought up in a brothel in the city of Teklan; at first as a skivvy in the kitchens, later as one of the 'girls'. As such she attracted the attention of a merchant in the city, who became fascinated by her unusual talents and removed her from the brothel, making her his mistress. She remained so for many years until his death, upon which she inherited a modest sum. Whilst not sufficient to make her wealthy, this amount was sufficient to support a young woman who found herself independent and alone in the world for the first time in her life.
It was at this time that Salome encountered the tiger felinumeara, X'Hart K'Tral. He had arrived in Teklan to discuss trading opportunities with the Emir. An incident in the souk led to their meeting and their friendship quickly deepened. After X'Hart left Elemmiire to return to his home on Cath'Eska, Salome discovered that she missed him greatly and, deciding to take a chance, she followed him. They have since bonded, becoming a mated pair.
- Salome's soul is made of several different desert hues and in its ground state will often appear to be smoke-like in form.
