Salgexicon is a character who appears in the 2012 film 'Steam Powered Giraffe: The Eternal Harp of
Golden Dream's. He appears in the Eternal Harp of Golden Dreams story segments.
He is portrayed by David Michael Bennett
Salgexicon is a tall, pale man with black hair and wears black robes. He wields a wooden staff with a metallic attachment, similar in design to a halberd.
According to the end credits song, Salgexicon was born in dragon's blood and raised by a sorcerer.
Travelling alongside Crolax, Rumbo the Ranger, Ardus the Magnificent, Skrdjvurm, and Sir Michael in search of the Eternal Harp of Golden Dreams, Salgexicon rests in the Field of Trepidation after escaping the Cave of Ordeals. Upon Skrdjvurm discovering a treasure chest, he demands it to be opened and attempts to use magic to destroy the seal, only to fail. When the chest is opened, the group finds a video tape inside the chest(containing footage of Steam Powered Giraffe) and they watch.
Part way through, the tape falters and Salgexicon attempts to fix the VCR playing the tape and succeeds.
By the end of the film, Salgexicon declares the journey 'quite an adventure', only to question aloud who Jimmy Fallon is (who was mentioned by The Spine in an interview).

(Salgexicon, Salgexicon, Salgexicon, Salgexicon)
Born in dragon's blood
raised by a sorcerer
he learned the magic
A tear from his eye
as his mentor died
teleported him to safety
Now he fights evil with his best of friends
They all have each other to the very end
Adventurer roll call!
Scarla the war witch, slices and dices
Her magic is deadly, she’s also the sister of Salgexicon
Ardus the Magnificent smashes things up
he throws down his mace and things explode to the sky
Skurdgvrm the dwarf has a big axe
that's pretty much all there is to know about him
Then there’s Bessie the undead minotaur
She reeks of undead flesh and smells really bad,
but the others try not to say anything
And of course there's the leader of this group,
who needs no introduction
His deeds of greatness and compassion travel the land,
he is known all around and everywhere as
Vanquishing evil wherever he goes
Saving everybody from all the bad guys
Save me, save us
Sorcerer of great
You'll always be in our hearts
His tears of magic always save the day
A truer friend and companion there never was
Sal-gex-icon and friends
(and Bessie the Minotaur)
