“Lord of dragons, the most ancient, the guardian of the past” (3:198). He is the oldest living dragon, possible the oldest living creature. He is not evil, unlike many other dragons. He sleeps on the Isle of Bones, and has for probably two thousand five hundred years. He was attacked by dwarfs, and in return destroyed the dwarf village on the island. He is a peaceful dragon and seeks solitude, yet he has great power. He is matched in power only by Alex. He is a true silver dragon.
He guarded Ancient Books of Knowledge before giving them to Alex. He lived in the days when the noble men and the dragons were one race. He is an ancestor of Alex.
After Alex leaves the island and hides it, Salinor occasionally speaks to Alex in dream and by thought.
He met Arconn once, long ago.
