This article details 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. Saloc defends souls on trial, arguing that they should be judged on the basis of both intentions and consequences. Saloc sometimes resurrects souls whom they deem to have been unfairly judged. The Minder of Immortals also judges deities, in the rare cases that is necessary.[2]


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. Saloc spends their time studying the growth of timeless beings and the moral structure of the cosmos. The city of 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]


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


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