The ‘of Lights’ of the Saliss of Lights Title comes from his ability to prepare hundreds, perhaps as many as a thousand alchemical weapons, that flash and explode like fireworks, but instead of crackling sparks, they explode into clouds of shining particles, crackling thunder and conventional explosions.[1]

In Volume 7 it was revealed that Saliss is secretly a Turnscale that individuals himself/herself/themselves as the opposite gender, with an alter ego that identifies as Onieva Oliwing.

Quotes Edit

  • (To Pallassian Guards) “I just misplaced my clothes! It was an accident! I would have put them on. Eventually.”
  • (To Erin) “Miss, no force on earth could make me put on pants.”
  • (To Inmates) “Mock me if you will! But don’t pretend I’m anything but honest! Natural! All of you are just prudes! Constrained by clothing! Grow up! Everyone has something!”
  • (To Erin) “Hah! Wandering inn? Good one! That’s clever!”
  • (To Grimalkin) “Grimalkin, are you adopting my fashion sense?”
  • (To himself) “This sucks. I’m going back home. I’ve got to make hundreds of potions—can’t even get arrested—what’s the world coming to? Prison’s great for focusing, but no…”
  • (To Grimalkin and Chaldion) “Really? I’ve met [Gamblers] who can do that. You think if I tag along with her, she can do something really entertaining? Like, say, accidentally knocking down one of Pallass’ walls?”
  • (To Erin) “Is this Xif? Go away! I’m not sharing my flame! If you’re a [Merchant], I’ll hit you. With a rock or something!”
  • (To Octavia) “Nah, I’m fine. Nakedness is a way of life, not a bargaining chip! And I’m naked enough for everyone!”
  • (To Octavia (and Erin)) “A magical garden. The door. A white Gnoll, oh, a few more interesting things here and there…and she wonders why I take an interest. Well, I like it. And she also has stuff that really interests me. Why shouldn’t I appear?”
  • (To Octavia) “Me, you? I’m never asking you to do anything…sexual. Or illegal. Or wrong. If you think I am, I probably said it wrong or you heard it weird. This isn’t Nerrhavia. I said that last night, right?”
  • (To everyone) “In case you forgot—I’m the best naked, dancing [Alchemist] this world has ever seen. And I really like this inn.”
  • (To Erin) “Hey. You always show up at the right moment, don’t you? That’s an adventurer’s trick.”
