This is pretty cool, and made better since I love salmon. I wonder what animals would do with these memories? Maybe a bear might have unusually good info on where to find some food or gain a skill one would never expect of a bear...
Since killer whales eat salmon too, they might be smart enough to make use of memories gained in this manner..
I chose Sidewinder because it started with the same letter. I suppose Claymore of the Cobra could work :)
Striking like a sidewinder would probably work too, though perhaps more people are familiar with a cobra. Go to Comment
Not bad, though the point I need to understand is how did he cause deaths with his ability? Is he pulling an Agent Smith on people he exchanges places with, or is he like, replacing the guy who is shooting at him, so the guy shoots himself?
I would play it as a battle only the axe wielder and the spell could participate in.

A spell would get stats based on the level of the spell - HP and AC, with both improving by level.
0-2nd level spells would count as an object, so you just need time to chop through them unopposed.
3-5th Have 'physical' attacks to defend themselves, causing invisible damage to the axe-wielder.
6-9th Have special attacks and likely to preemptively 'attack' the axe wielder if they come close.
Probably the easiest would be to take a monster of the appropriate level, removing their movement abilities and re-skinning them as the spell. Monsters with minimal special defenses would probably make the most sense.
Other characters might be able to help if they have spells that can interact with spells. Or if you allow multiple weapons in your world with this ability.
I think this is a more interesting approach to removing spells then just the Dispel Magic spell.
In a small inn (the more remote the better), a man turns up dead. There are no wounds on his body what-so-ever, and he aboslutely reeks of garlic.
The man died of a curse that forced him to eat a clove of garlic a day or suffer the penalty. This gets really interesting if the body somehow appears on top of a someone the villagers are suspcious of.
