|“||That's right. He called us beasts. Meanwhile, he refers to himself as "the Savior." Who exactly is he saving?||„|
|~ Ignatz on Solon.|
Solon, also known as Tomas or the Savior of All (self-titled) is a major antagonist from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is a member of the Those Who Slither in the Dark with the look of a mage. Suitable for his appearance, he uses cunning schemes and tricks. He is a highly dangerous individual and considers himself a savior.
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. Later on, he kills Kronya, using her as part of a spell that banishes Byleth into the dark world. After Byleth breaks free, he battles against the party one last time before his death.
Super Smash Bros.
Solon appears in Byleth's reveal trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. A similar scene happens as he casts the forbidden spell of Zahras to banish Byleth to the void, the same spell he used in a similar fashion through Kronya's sacrifice. However, there are a few differences; Sothis suggests to Byleth that they join Super Smash Bros., and when they return from the void, Solon's reaction is slightly altered so that instead of saying "So the fell star consumes even the darkness itself", he says, "So joining Smash consumes even the darkness itself." Also, when Female Byleth arrives with the relics of the house leaders, he is left in speechless shock in response.
Solon is a pale skinned man with light blue hair and an unsually large head. His right eye is open abnormally far, has a different color than his left eye, and has unusual markings around it.
Solon is a highly dangerous and cunning individual and regards himself as a savior. He appears to value knowledge above all else.
|“||I'm not Tomas. My name is Solon, the savior of all! *reveals himself as Solon* What's the matter? So shocked you can't even speak? Hahaha.. You were so easily fooled by my disguise… I was hiding away in Garreg Mach to get the blood of that little girl called Flayn. With her blood, we'll be one step closer to realizing our goal.||„|
