Salakk, Salt-Wyrm of Las Salines was seemingly obliterated by Carmen's lightning in 1230. Vulcanus chopped the corpse up and had the parts shipped home, taking vis from the bones. The bits were stashed in the cave under the basement under the catacombs under the basement.

Despite this, Salakk returned in 1235, wearing a gem stone (actually a blood red ruby the size of a kite-shield) strapped to his torso with a harness of metal of some sort. When the magi investigated its former remains, they discovered that there was nothing left but salt.
Despite the odds, a small team composed of Vibria, Arnau and some Flame Brothers, Antoni and Selim managed to defeat him. Having accompanied Vibria, Maurice the dragon informed the magi that the harness was "the same sort that Pan Caudrax uses", and would have instantly revived Salakk from the point of death.
Sadly, before Vibria could parlay with Salakk, Maurice savagely slashed his throat, killing the Salt Dragon a second time and devoring it.


Salakk, Salt-Wyrm of Las Salines, is long and massive (about 25-30 feet, or 7½ to 9 meters long), with scales of dusky-white and gleaming red eyes. It has tiny vestigial wings, no hind legs, and powerful forelimbs with deadly claws. It also has dozens of razor sharp teeth, which are twice as deadly. It's massive girth can support it as it holds its torso upright when he so chooses (such as in combat or to be intimidating), but he most prefers lying snaked out on the ground. He is hyper aware of everything that goes on around him, but he is so lazy that he may let minor intrusions slide as long as they do not wake him fully. But he may also feign slumber until intruders creep in closely; then suddenly snap out and try to suddenly swallow them with one bite.
