“That's right. He called us beasts. Meanwhile, he refers to himself as "the Savior." Who exactly is he saving?”
Ignatz

Solon, the self-titled "savior of all," is a minor antagonist from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. A mysterious mage of the Those Who Slither in the Dark, he uses cunning schemes and tricks suitable of his appearance. A highly dangerous individual, he knows spells that no other mage in Fódlan ever heard before.

"Just a minute! The following section contains spoilers, viewing it will cost a lot. Are you prepared to pay for it?"

Solon had infiltrated the Garreg Mach Monastery under the guise of Tomas, pretending to be a faithful follower of the Church of Seiros. Tomas was the Monastery's librarian for over 40 years. Sometime after he had retired from his job, Solon killed him and assumed his identity to infiltrate the Monastery.

Using his position, he was able to learn much from the books stored in the library and has intimate knowledge of the Monastery's affairs. His identity is revealed after controlling the denizens of Remire Village.

Kronya, taking the disguise of Monica, lures Byleth and their students to Sealed Forest with the intention of killing them. Much to Kronya's surprise, however, they are able to defeat her forces, and she attempts to flee as Byleth chases after her. Before Byleth can kill Kronya, Solon appears behind her, with Kronya interpreting his presence as a rescue. Instead of a rescue, Solon plunges his arm into Kronya's chest and rips her heart out, using her lifeforce to cast the Forbidden Spell of Zahras on Byleth, sending them into the void. Byleth's students then arrive, and Solon taunts them, claiming that he has removed Byleth from the world.

Much to his surprise, however, Byleth escapes the void. Solon, knowing that nothing could escape the void, then realizes that Sothis must have granted them her power to escape. He calls in a group of Agarthans and Demonic Beasts to finish them off, but he is eventually killed in the ensuing battle, stating that Thales will continue their mission.

"End of spoilers. It's a pleasure doing business with you!"

Solon/Heroes Quotes

Non-Canon Appearances[edit | edit source]

Super Smash Bros. series[edit | edit source]

Solon appears during the reveal trailer "The Ashen Demon" for Byleth's inclusion into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fulfilling a similar role to his in-game appearance in Three Houses.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Solon is an Athenian legislator and poet who is often credited with laying the foundations for Athenian democracy. He is considered to be one of the Seven Sages of Greece.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Solon's class sprite is the same sprite used by the Agastya class, rather than using the typical Dark Bishop sprite.
  • According to unused data, Solon stands at 176cm (or 5'9")
  • In the Super Smash Bros. series, Solon is one of the few characters to appear in a fighter's reveal trailer but never to appear in any of the games itself. He shares this distinction with Margie from the Animal Crossing series and Emperor Niall and his Blade Aegaeon from the Xenoblade Chronicles series.
    • Unlike the aforementioned characters, who make mere cameos, Solon plays a more prominent role in Byleth's reveal trailer, sealing Byleth away into the darkness.
  • Solon's in-game model uses a unique facial animation where he is will always keep his right eye open, as opposed to blinking with both eyes.
  • Solon and Nemesis are the only enemy NPCs in Three Houses that have unique critical cut-ins, rather than the generic set.
  • Solon's cane is actually part of his model.
