Given their cold-blooded nature, it’s no surprise Salamanders feel at home in the deserts. Scholars (ie, anyone who works with them in the summer) reckon they must have come from somewhere a bit cooler, because they can’t be meant to be that hyper. Salamander history claims they’ve been in the city since it’s founding, but so does everyone else’s.
Salamanders are popular in the arena, where they make use of their speed to dart in and out, sprinting around and jabbing people from a distance with the spears they tend to favour. ‘Salamander Bullshit’ is a popular term amongst fans and detractors.
Of course, the other reason Salamanders are popular is because they tend to die very quickly, and very messily, when someone finally manages to corner them.
