Introduction

The Salvato line has been around for who knows how long. This small family has been able to keep themselves secret to most of the world, so it is unknown how long they have actually be around for. What is known is that this family is they were formed in Montreal, Canada. They have been known to split up and wander from there, even some sticking just to the nearby area. The family that had once started out as pure as any other has grown dark by the deeds of its descendants, whether they stick near their birth home or have spread out across the rest of the world.


In terms of the present world, in Nova Scotia and Beyond the Salvato family has been able to remain hidden to most of the world, but has had its presence stretched out to Salsola, and as of recent, Inferni. The core of the Salvato family has taken up settling in the kingdom of Mortimer in Toronto. These 'saviors' are hardly worthy of being called even that, as what they would have been saved from may not have been better than the life they were given.

'Souls History

Early History

The Salvato family began its roots in the land of Montreal, Canada. Keeping to themselves, not much is known about this family or the kinds of relationships they have with those on the outside. What is known is that this once pure family has gone down a dark path.

Other world territories are open to having interactions with the Salvato family. Let Salena know if you wish to have notable interactions.

In 2011, young pup Locke Salvato is born to Myrtle Salvato. A man by the name of King Prior had found his mother and raped her, resulting in her only son. While she was raising him on her own, Myrtle contracted a deadly illness. She did her best to raise Locke, but ended up dying when he was still a pup. Having no other source of food, Locke resorted to feeding on his mother's corpse, beginning the attraction to cannibalism. He was later found by a nearby pack, claiming his mother had been attacked and tore apart. Having sympathy for the pup, Locke was taken in. As he grew up, his new home got caught in the middle of a war. Coming across one of the dead, Locke began to carve it's body, getting caught in the act. He was later exiled from his home. His wandering would then bring him to the kingdom of Salsola.

Recent History

Having left Salsola for his own reasons, Locke became one of the founding members of Mortimer, a pack of noble 'vampires'. Though he does not hold a high rank in this society, having never had much combat prowess, he serves as one of the kingdom's lead hunters. He is thus far the only member in the entire kingdom that is allowed to feast on the bodies of the dead. He also looks over any canines that are captured and held in the kingdom. If he comes across females that are victims of rape, to 'save' their pups from death, he will take them into his own family, raising them as his own.

Azucena Lykoi gave birth to four children through Locke. After fleeing from Mortimer, her and her children took up residence in Portland. Now, her children are beginning to make their way back to where they first came from. Meridia Lykoi was the first to return, joining up with Inferni, but was soon caught in the middle of a war.
