Salassim was a magician of great skill whose legend was well known in the lands around the City State of the Invincible Overlord. It is believed that he had something to do with the apotheosis of Bjorn the Mighty, and indeed that Bjorn was once Salassim’s slave. When he entered The Cutthroat Tavern he was sickly and gaunt and wrapped in mysterious shackles. He hired the party to escort him to the Pylon where he seems to have entered the Plane of Fire. Shortly after his entering the portal, a long line of smoke issued forth and entered a lamp he had given to Annapurna.

Annapurna later discovered that Salassim had become an Ifrit when she rubbed the lamp in hopes of wishing to resurrect Khurshid. Salassim informed her that he could perform “three services” for her, but they were not “wishes.”
