Slasher belonged to a settler in the Pictish Wilderness before the Picts burned his master's home. The dog tore three Picts apart but was gravely wounded before Conan and other soldiers from Fort Tuscelan found him and dressed his wounds. He later fought and died alongside Balthus in a delaying action against the Picts to give the women and children settlers time to reach safety. Upon hearing of the fight, Conan vowed to take the heads of ten Picts to pay for Balthus' sacrifice, along with " ...seven heads for the dog, who was a better warrior than many a man."
