|Title||Royal Explorer of Oz |
Captain, Crescent Moon
|Affiliation||Land of Oz, Ozma|
|First Appearance||Pirates in Oz|
He is six feet tall and an imposing physical presence, with a fierce beard. He sometimes wears a scimitar, and occasionally carries it in his teeth. He dresses flashily when the occasion warrants, though aboard ship he likes to dress casually in his red shorts.
He first gained fame as a pirate captain, though he always preferred exploring and making discoveries to plundering. His crew abandoned him and stole one of his two ships. He decided to plunder an island for men and supplies and then pursue, but instead he found King Ato, whose men had also deserted him. Salt, Ato, and Roger the Read Bird left on the Crescent Moon to pursue both groups of departed men. During their adventure, they met Peter Brown and were instrumental in saving Oz from Ruggedo. Salt then fully reformed and became an official explorer for Oz.(Pirates in Oz)
Captain Salt had the Crescent Moon refitted by the Red Jinn, and then launched on his mission of exploration with Ato and Roger. They also found a new cabin boy in Tazander Tazah, or Tandy for short. They discovered many new islands for Oz, including Tandy's homeland of Ozamaland. All of these countries were conquered for Oz, but only with their consent, of course. (Captain Salt in Oz)
