NOTE: All threads before ‘Soul Search’ show Salem pre-design, prior to his evolution in the character he is now, though many changes are quite trivial (for example the development of a speech impediment, and the shift of his eye colour from black to white, which takes place over some time).

In search of absolution... (http://starwarsrpg.net/forums/showthread.php?t=1794) : in the absence of Jeseth Cloak, Salem grows impatient and seeks out the Sith Empire, whereupon he is accepted as a Disciple and is taken on by Laran Katern as his apprentice.

A wayward soul… : Salem chances by the 'Dragons Breath' bar, of which Alana Stormcloud - a vampire - is owner. He begins to question her on her species, resulting in the appearance of Soth.

Second solace (http://www.sw-fans.net/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=21403) : with his interest in The Sith Empire waning, the absence of Laran Katern fuels his resolve to return to the Sith Order. He is greeted by Lady Vader, and returns into the ranks of the Order.

The Hand that holds the Fist away (http://www.sw-fans.net/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=22855) : aimless wanderings lead Salem inexplicably to Jeseth Cloak, a shadow of his former self.
