Black Company Wiki

Saltireva was a Voroshk woman mentioned briefly in Soldiers Live. The Family's chief patriarch, the First Father, put aside Shukrat's mother and took Saltireva as his lover. The affair deeply hurt Shukrat, who was never the same afterward. This episode was mentioned by Arkana to Magadan shortly before they were brutalized by vengeful Black Company members.

Saltireva is not mentioned again, and her fate is unspecified. She may have been one of the hundreds of Family fatalities caused by the hellish invasion of shadows into the Voroshk world which was unintentionally precipitated by her lover, the First Father himself. Or, less likely, she may have been one of the 15 or 16 Family members who survived to the end of Soldiers Live.
