Salem Rula Nader is the daughter of an Armenian American immigrant and a woman who fled the tabled city of witches and warlocks, Limbo Town. In 1936. Salem's parents abandoned their six-year-old daughter to save themselves from the "Limbo Town Curse" and retreated to an unknown dimension. Young Salem was left to inherit her mother's Limbo Town Curse. This curse was put upon any female who deserted Limbo Town, causing 'bad fates' to befall those the deserters grew dose to. Because of the wicked curse, anyone Salem cared for would quickly find their life negatively affected in a variety of unscrupulous and unfortunate ways, from stepping in a deep puddle to being hit by a bus and killed. The curse was unpredictable and unbecoming. For most of her young life. Salem lived on the streets of Boston alone, until the 10-year-old encountered Doctor Fate in June of 1940. Despite her protests, Doctor Fate took Salem in to protect her from the villainous Wotan. who wanted to sacrifice the child to acquire power During her time with Doctor Fate, Salem learned that he was immune to her 'bad fates' curse. This provided great relief for Salem, and a person she could finally open her heart to Soon after. Salem became known as the Witch Girl, the often grating and usually arrogant sidekick to Doctor Fate. Although Salem kept her distance from others so that they might avoid the Limbo Town Curse, on occasion she would connect with someone and they would end up distraught, in the hospitals or dead. As the years went on, Salem grew more disillusioned as again and again she and Doctor Fate were unable to free her from the Limbo Town Curse. After Doctor Fate's girlfriend, Inza Cramer was almost killed because of the curse, Salem disappeared. However, Doctor Fate suspected Salem been abducted and taken back to Limbo Town. He went to the Justice Society Dark for help, but even together they were unable to locate her. The Witch Girl has not been seen since. Beyond the 'bad fates' curse she inherited from her mother, Salem also is a witch-in-tralning with great mystical knowledge and power, owing to both her heritage from Limbo Town end her tutelage under Doctor Fate as well as the secrets she unlocked within Fate's tower.
