Appearance(s)

Solon (Japanese: ソロン Solon) is a character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is a member of those who slither in the dark.

Biography

Solon is a member of those who slither in the dark. He makes his first proper appearance in Chapter 8, discarding his appearance as Tomas in a burning Remire Village, revealing he had disguised himself just so he could obtain Flayn's blood in order to further his group's agenda. Once defeated, Solon declares he had achieved the purpose of his experiments before teleporting away. He appears once again in Chapter 10, intercepting his fellow cult member Kronya who asks for his help with killing Byleth. Solon agrees, proceeding to ritually sacrifice Kronya against her will by ripping her heart out from her chest, performing the Forbidden Spell of Zaharas which trap Byleth in a realm of never ending darkness. While gloating over his victory, Byleth manages to break free after fusing with Sothis. Realizing what had just happened, Solon panics and to tries to slay Byleth one last time before ultimately meeting his demise, wishing Thales will be able to finish the group's work as he draws his last breath.

While it is never confirmed, story and character dialogue implies those who slither in the dark murdered the original Tomas sometime before the events of the story just so Solon could infiltrate Garreg Mach Monastery under the librarian's identity, a theory which is shared by Seteth.[3]

Personality and character

Solon is a sinister old mage with a penchant for schemes and tricks, lacking in empathy and having no qualms with sacrificing villagers and other Agarthans for the sake of experiments.[4][5] Like all on-screen Agarthans, he considers himself to be a member of Fódlan's master race and the surface-dwelling humans to be nothing but "beasts", proclaiming himself as their "savior".[6] Solon is also loyal to Thales, and has faith he will be able to continue the Agarthans' mission without him.[7] In contrast to Thales, Kronya, and Cornelia however, Solon is also a fairly good impersonator, as he manages to mimic Tomas's mannerisms and personality perfectly, staying beneath suspicion in Garreg Mach up until he deliberately choses to reveal himself.[8][9]

  3. "First Tomas, and now Monica. I do have a theory, though I admit it is nothing more than speculation. Both Tomas and Monica have each gone missing at one time or another. It was reported that when Monica returned from her disappearance, she began to act like a completely different person. As if, perhaps, the real Monica had been killed and replaced by an impostor. Thinking of it like that, it is possible that this Solon had been impersonating Tomas for some time." — Seteth in Chapter 10 during monastery exploration, Fire Emblem: Three Houses
