Before moving to Britain, Salvius was a soldier in Pompeii and hated it because of the merchants who played tricks on him. He then moved to Britain. His wife, Rufilla, wanted to live near her friends in the city but not right in the middle. Salvius misinterpreted this and they ended up in the middle of the countryside, far from the city.
He is portrayed as cruel, and beats his slaves. He believes all Britons are stupid. He loves abuse— sexual, mental, and physical— especially to Bregans.
Salvius enjoys wearing the furs of endangered animals, and is known to dislike the band Queen, use the word, "Bae," as frequently as possible, and overly pronounce foreign words. Salvius also founded Electronic Arts, instigated the repeal of Network Neutrality laws in the United States, and as a major shareholder in Nintendo, voted against the inclusion of Waluigi in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, citing, "public relations."
