Salma does not hate the Splugorth and their minions but instead considers them to be her rescuer. In addition, she seems them as giving he the tools she needs to deal with the vampires. As a result, she is extremely loyal to the Splugorth and the minions of Atlantis. She does not really see that the Splugorth and their minions can be just as brutal with their slaves as the vampires are. It is hard to tell what she might do if she ever truly absorbs this fact. There is a bit of a nagging suspicion that the rumors she has heard is true but she dismisses them for the most part.
If anything, her time in Atlantis has increased her hatred of vampires even more although she has hated them ever since the murdered her family. If she has the opportunity, she will kill vampires without pause. She does have a feeling of being better than a normal human, tougher and stronger. Some tattoo warriors simply enjoy killing but this is not the case with her. She will kill when she needs to but does not enjoy it except with Vampires and their minions.
She is loyal to those she works with and does keep her word of honor when she gives it. As such, even though she can be quite brutal, she can work with team and allies. Some servants of the Splugorth can be quite unsocial but that cannot be said about her. In fact she is quite outgoing with those around her. She likes to spend time with a lover and sex is one thing she really enjoys. Over the last couple of years, she has had a whole host of different lovers

Character History:

Salma was born in one of the smaller towns in the Vampire Kingdom of Ixzotz. The area is completely dominated by the vampires and many of the people living under the vampires are sick from being fed off so often. When Salma was just six years old, a group of vampire decided not to control themselves and both of her parents were killed in their gluttony. From what she understood, her grandparents were killed in the same manner.

After her parents were killed, she was raised by an aunt for the next couple of years. The death of her parents were what started he absolute hatred of vampires. Still, there is little which a young child can do against creatures such as vampires. In many ways, the vampires are demon and god combined. They were absolutely unstoppable.

Then she met a group which showed that they were not so unstoppable. A group sent from Atlantis had made its way deep into the vampire ruled kingdoms. It is one of the deepest raids ever achieved. The attack slew many humans in the town but also killed all of the vampires in the village. Of course, the group was not really benevolent and they took many of the heathier individuals, adults and children alive, for slaves. Salma was one of these.

They test their prisoners to see how valuable they might be and they found that Salma had excellent reaction times and had the potential to be an incredible fighter. At first, the High Lord planned to have her transformed into a Maxi-Man bur changed his mind and decided that she would become on of the new tattoo archers.

He knew that she had a strong hatred of vampires and made sure that her hatred was strengthened. The powerful Splugorth minion wanted a force which he could use against vampires and he wanted loyalty from them so he made sure that the training left off the worst of the brutality. Even so, there is no way that the training could truly be called pleasant. Still, she knew that she was being trained to get revenge against vampires and allowed her the motivation she needed to succeed. She was kept way from humans meant for food stock as to not realize some of what is done. Rumors reached her but she dismissed them for the most part.

The tattoos could only be placed on her so fast and each tattoo is incredibly painful. Training in how to use the tattoos takes even longer. As a result, any tattoo warrior takes years to create with hand to hand training and training on how to hunt vampires taking even longer. She was even taught the rudiments of being able to read and write the language of the Dragons which is the most common language used in Atlantis. As well, she was found to have the potential to be a powerful psychic and that ability needed to be fully trained. Her training as a Tattoo Archer started wen she was a little over eight and continued until she was almost sixteen years old.

When she was judged to be finished her training, she was sent with a team to the lands she had spent her early childhood. She quickly showed herself, while young, to be a quite capable and skilled warrior. Salma was extremely ruthless with vampires, killing at least half a dozen in this first raid.

After the success she had in her first raid, she was sent on several other raids against the vampires. At first she relied completely on her tattoos but found that sometimes her magical energies would run low and she needed backup weaponry. She was able to acquire an enchanted battle axe as well as enchanted arrows. Because of her speed as well as her ability to fly, she was give the nickname of "Halcón" which means "Falcon."
