Salius Ruven (? – 574 PC) was a male Human Black Robe Wizard that specialized in necromancy.

War of Bones[]

Salius raised a large army of undead in secret under the Khalkist Mountains. In 574 PC, Salius marched on the city of Istar. His troops laid siege to the city for months. During this time the city asked the wizards of the Tower of High Sorcery at Istar for help but they refused to attack one of their own. The Knights of Solamnia broke the siege and Salius was defeated. His head was placed on a spike over the western gate of the city. This incident became known as the War of Bones.
