Side of Origin: Dystokyo
Age: 6,700 turns
Saltina was a favorite of the Imperial court of Dystokyo, almost from the turn she popped. She leveled quickly, proving her usefulness time and again as counsel and confidant to Emperor Scup, who ultimately promoted her to a position as Chief Thinkamancer and made her his heir.
Scup fell in a battle that he was advised by his Predictamancer not to lead. Saltina found herself occupying the throne, with enemies closing in for the final blow. Ill-equipped to lead a war, she also attempted to direct a battle herself, only to be stranded in the field as her capital fell.
Thus captured by the notoriously slippery tactics of Imperial Margarine, she was taken prisoner and held at the capital. She refused to turn, though, and eventually escaped by means of a Thinkamancy suggestion. She fled through Margarine's portal into the Magic Kingdom, where she has since remained.
Preferring to offer her services to other casters rather than hire out to a side, Saltina is one of the better-known Thinkamancers around the Magic Kingdom. She retains her full title and formal raiment. Despite its proscription, there are rumors that she may be interested in founding a new Dystokyo someday.
In the magic Kingdom there is much thought and little action. Outside the Magic Kingdom the reverse is true.

Real World References
She is a reference to Fire Emblem character Empress Sanaki, and her ancestor, Altina.
Her name is possibly also a reference to Saltine, a type of cracker. This is somewhat supported by her name, Snacki.
