Events of Battlefield 3: The Russian
Born in 1971, the man that shall come to be recognized as Solomon was in Lebanon in 1987 while American missionaries held him under their wing and took him to Florida where he's gone to school. His guardians named him Solomon after the Wise King of the Bible's Old Testament due to the amnesia he suffers so he cannot remember his name. When Solomon was 16, he was bullied in school for months. As retaliation, he slaughters three of the abusers with a machete. After the event, he disappears on a cargo ship headed for the Persian Gulf.
Solomon ends up in Kandahar, Afghanistan, close at the end of the Soviet invasion by 1989, supporting the Mujahideen forces, known as "Suleiman" to them, before Dimitri Mayakovsky, then, secretly, learned him out for his ability with languages, discipline, and unmercifulness. He then learned in Russia for two years in the Russian Spetsnaz program and was taken as a pupil of Dimitri from then forward within GRU.
Solomon was on his first GRU enlisting with Dimitri in a plot to catch one of the physicists which was behind the top-secret Iranian nuclear program, a man named Khalaji. During their secret meeting, Solomon runs aside after eight American operatives intercede to capture Khalaji for themselves. At the same time, Solomon takes aim from behind close at the parked cars and kills the operative that would've otherwise shot and killed a then disarmed Dimitri. But as Solomon rescued Dimitri, this costs the two a availing asset in the Iranian nuclear program because the American operatives takes Khalaji.
Shortly before the dissolution of the Soviet union in December 1991, Solomon left, but he returns again following 9/11 terrorist attacks. Despite not connected to the attacks, he was imprisoned in the prison of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. However, being as smart as he is, Solomon offers intelligence on terrorist cells and intelligence from working with GRU so he can be released.
