"It is just as the spies described."

This article has recently been converted to the new character-focused layout but it needs a lore enthusiast to help fill-out the sections. In addition, 'Relations trivia' and 'Lore trivia' have been moved here but need restructuring into article content - lore is no longer trivia.

If you're eager to help but would like to reference a completed character article: Aurelion Sol, Jinx, Mel, and Viego are excellent.

Salo is a Piltover Crest icon.png Piltovan aristocrat and a member of Piltover's ruling council.

Background

Early Life

Salo was born and raised into one of Piltover's noble clans. At some point during his life, he would inherit his family's position on the city's ruling council.

Hexgem Incident

When the workshop of an Academy scholar named Jayce Talis Jayce Talis was robbed and accidentally blown up in the process, his unauthorized experimentation with exploiting magic crystals was discovered, becoming a cause for concern of the Council. Salo moved for Jayce's banishment as stated in their Ethos, but Heimerdinger Heimerdinger instead moved for him to be expelled from the Academy and banned from his research instead.[1] With Councilor Medarda's Councilor Medarda's machinations, however, Jayce and his new partner Viktor Viktor managed to perfect Jayce's Hextech research and he was given the authority to work on it.[2] Salo eventually became one of the many businessmen in Piltover to benefit from Jayce's creation of Hexgates.

At one point, newly-appointed Councilor Jayce ordered the strengthening of security and inspection of trades made through the Hexgates. As Salo and his associates had deals with Piltover Police Crest.png enforcers and the rest of the Council to ease their transactions, despite possibly shady dealings, Salo and the others began discussing alternatives or what to do about Jayce. Jayce managed to win back their favor soon after with deals of his own.[3] With this, Salo and the rest of the Council was easily convinced to agree with Jayce's suggestion to force Heimerdinger to retire from the Council.[4]

When an explosion on the bridge caused by a Zaunite Zaunite resulted in the deaths of multiple enforcers, and their Sheriff's Sheriff's deceit was discovered, the Council convened to discuss their next action. Councilor Kiramman's Councilor Kiramman's daughter Caitlyn Caitlyn arrived to address them and told them about Silco Silco. Though Salo was quick to shoot down her statements as baseless due to prior investigations yielding no results, Caitlyn was quick to prove her point by pointing out that the investigations were led by their corrupt late Sheriff.[5] Jayce later came to their next meeting with the proposition to grant Zaun their independence. After some discussion and objections, the Council unanimously agreed, only for the meeting to be bombed by Jinx with a missile powered by Jayce's Hextech Gemstone.[6] Salo's fate after the incident is currently unknown.

Appearance

Personality

Like the stereotypical politician, Salo is a vain and self-centered individual who only cares for his own interests. He is also shown to be corrupt and out of touch with his own people, and appears to have a disdainful view towards Zaunites.

Abilities

Relations

Hoskel Hoskel

Salo likes to be on Hoskel's good side, even if it means bribery, but seems to know very little about his fellow council member, as he was unaware of Hoskel's nut allergy on the latter's birthday. Despite this, however, the two of them both enjoy illegal Noxian spirits and are willing to employ corrupt tactics to regularly smuggle the drink to Piltover for themselves.
