Ioan Salam also known as the "Gypsy King" was born in Romania, Caracal in a Romani family. He spent his childhood stealing food and metal but when he got older he started to only steal metal, as his kids would steal the food. He has 12 kids with his woman Magda Salam, 5 of which are missing. When the infection hit, Ioan beat his wife to death after she kicked a bottle of water by accident, spilling it all over the ground. His kids were horrified, but they all came back to reality when Ioan slapped them each. They died 2 days later due to infected. Ioan was left with nothing but his brave horse "Gypsy War Horse" when he met a bunch of travelers and went along with them towards the South of Zagoria.
He now searches for metal and a new saddle for his horse.
PS. He will spit on you and your family.
