Saalim was one of Morito Hayama's best students. Saalim lost his eyesight protecting an ally in a battle, so Morito taught him the ELS technique to compensate for his blindness. Despite his blindness, Saalim became a famous S-rank mercenary, said to virtually be Master-rank in skill. He even trained his own apprentice, Toura. However, he relied on his ELS too much, which ended up causing his death. Saalim is one of the mercenaries resurrected by Child's Room experiments with Dead Language (a process which also restored his eyesight). Unlike the others who were the puppets of the Master-rank Sol White, he's following orders from an unknown Master-rank.

- Martial Arts: Saalim is a highly skilled martial artist, using the same style Morito and Toura do. One of the signature techniques of this style is dislocating the enemy's limbs with what appears to be a split second light touch.
- ELS: Echo-Location Skill, a term used to refer to a technique that allows the user to detect and identify threats through sound. Skilled users are capable of identifying weapon's models or the sound of a person's breath, muscle movement or heartbeat. Saalim was taught this technique after losing his eyesight in combat. This technique can also be used to tell if a person is lying by listening to their heart.
- Sound Silencing: Saalim is skilled enough at this technique to conceal the real sounds of his body like his heartbeat or his blood flowing to try to trick an ELS user into believing his lies.
