Salaman the Master Pyromancer, nicknamed Great Fireball,[1] is a mentioned character in Dark Souls.


Salaman was from an era two hundred years before the events of Dark Souls. He is mentioned by Quelana of Izalith to have been able to see her and he became her pupil in pyromancy,[2] later passing on his knowledge to his own pupil, Carmina.[1][3]

He came to be known by the title "Great Fireball", referring to the pyromancy of the same name which he ostensibly used often.[1]


  • His name seems to be based on the Salamander, one of the alchemical spirits of fire.
