||Character Details - Salem Rothchilde (the wizard)
If you have a question regarding this character please message Willow Silverwing a the Bardic Web.
Salem is a large black longhaired cat with very large golden eyes, at least he is when not in his true form.
He is also a wizard, a very old wizard and Merlin's right hand and the close friend of one called Silva Merlin. (some say Silva is actually Merlin) (Salem's shields are always up.)
Height: 6'2" Gold eyes
Attire: Always dressed in black.
Weapons: He needs none, but will use a sword for appearance sake.
Wears the amulet of Merin...a pendant given to him by the master.
He was Willow Merlin's guardian for years but now she is Drake Cole Silverwing's wife. He is still there for them, but now has his own life to live.
What Salem has done so far:
He informed Willow that he was a wizard and her guardian. Her guardian until recently … once Willow accepted the pendant from Drake, Salem was released from the responsibility of sustaining and protecting her. Drake now has that responsibility.
He tried to not allow Willow and Drake to return to her old home, but failed and Willow did find her father, or someone who was supposedly her father.
When Willow fell in love with Drake, Drake thought it would be a nice to get a companion for Salem so that he wouldn't be lonely. He brought home a white cat that he purchased from a pet shop.
Salem soon discovered that she was not a cat but a djinn...who kept calling him master. Now she calls him husband. She, being Emily La'Duff. They have a daughter, Cecily aka Cece.
This is the only time in Salem's history that he has been married or has had a child.
Salem is very skilled at being a wizard, being almost as good as his friend Silva Merlin, though maybe only giving the appearance that he wasn't as good as his friend. He in fact locked Willow's memories of her previous life and skills.
Salem can also be a sly old devil. There have been many twists and turns to his life. Salem has been around for many many years. More than he wishes to remember.
He has learned to travel backward in time and forward in time. What he learns from each period he uses to build on, always careful not to mess with what could harm the threads of time.
One needs to be careful in how they deal with him. Not all is as it seems with him.
Salem does not foretell the future, at least not on purpose. Nor does he dream of future things. But, he can and will be aware of things taking a twist, or that there is to be a change happening to someone close to him or even himself. He makes sure that he does nothing to change those feelings. He does not want to the one to change what has been foreordained...or so he things. (added 5/29. 2007)
Keeping this piece of history - in case he reappears there again.

Salem is very skilled at being a wizard/sorcerer. His skills come from times long forgotten and skills that he learned from a dear friend.
Salem can also be a sly old devil. There have been many twists and turns to his life. Salem has been around for many many years. More than he wishes to remember. He has learned to travel backward in time and forward in time. What he learns from each period he uses to build on, always careful not to mess with what could harm the threads of time.
For this time period in Salem’s life a deep-seated hatred of the undead has taken over his life. Vengeance and death is what he is seeking for those who had destroyed the joy in his life.
He had finally found that missing part in his life the piece of puzzle so to speak that completed him. Her name was Chanti and she had been like a fine wine, once tasted, you wanted more. Life had taken on a new meaning for him and he had set aside the traveling, and left his charge in the care of some good folks on Terra and had left feeling hundreds of years younger.
Chanti never tired of his ramblings, she had listened to his every word and was always at his side. The nights and days ran together as they found joy in each other and the worlds around them.
Then it happen. They had come to Caliginous on a whim hearing about it from a source in one of the traveling groups. A place where there were castles and sword fighting like the days of old that was portrayed in the movies he had seen on Terra, yet at the same time it offered the amenities of the modern world.
They had been there only for a few days, when Chanti told Salem she needed some items from a local vendor that stayed open late at night and that she would be right back. Not sensing any reasons to worry he had kissed her goodbye and watched her from the window of their hotel has she ran across the street. Time passed when he realized she had been gone longer than necessary. Glancing out the window he stood stock still has he saw a form being tossed in an alleyway. Without a second thought he ran from the room, ignored the elevator making for the stairway. He raced out the door to the alleyway.
Chanti lay stripped of all her dignity, she had been raped, her body a mass of scratches and bruises, where no blood ran. Kneeling beside her, he tried to control the rage that ran through him. He yelled for help, but no one stopped, some chuckled and others ran as if death was chasing them. Then he saw the punctures in her neck. He knew what he had to do next…he knew what had happened. The dormant hatred of the undead once again seethed forth as another part of Salem’s life took hold, that of being a Hunter.
