This article covers the psychopomp usher. For the village chief of Novoboro, see Saloc (human).

Saloc is a genderless psychopomp usher[1] who revels in the free will of the living to do almost anything. It defends souls on trial, arguing that they should be judged on the basis of both intentions and consequences. Saloc sometimes resurrects souls whom it deems to have been unfairly judged. It also judges deities, in the rare cases that is necessary.[2]

Home

Saloc dwells in a crypt-temple called the Tumulus, a site destined to be a comforting cradle for immortals when they die at the end of time. It spends its time studying the growth of timeless beings and the moral structure of the cosmos. The city Spire's Edge is constructed around the Tumulus, and Saloc governs it through a tribune of yamaraj psychopomps on leave from their court rooms. Pinnacle Hall serves as Saloc's palace and hall of governance, as well as the residence of the ruling yamaraj. The intransigent nosoi Aqui serves as Saloc's advisor and directs the palace's nosoi and viduus bureaucrats.[3]

Appearance

Saloc is roughly humanoid, with a featureless face and stag horns orbited by two eye-lined golden rings.[2]

Relationships

Saloc is held in low regard by most of its colleagues, due to its tendency to resurrect petitioners and undo judgements. Vale especially hates it, viewing Saloc as immature for doing so.[2]
