Physical descriptions of the Salesman vary wildly from account to account. The most common of them state that the Salesman is a tall individual, somewhere over 6 feet, with hair that is either jet black or ashy gray. He's said to dress in fine clothing, yet appears casual enough to not stand out in a significant way. One thing that every single story mentions is that the Salesman is always wearing a gold watch upon his left wrist.
The ability to change minds and twist perceptions with mere touch understandably draws comparisons to The Dream-maker
-- a notoriously reclusive therapist of sorts, who tries to help individuals by mending minds and healing broken memories. The Dream-maker does this by getting to know his patients and understanding how their brain works before meddling about in their thoughts.
The Salesman, if the stories are to be believed, is doing something differently. He spends no time in getting to know his mark before shaking hands, and seems to be influencing them without any regard for their underlying thoughts.
