ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Caster's True Name is Solomon (ソロモン, Soromon?), who was named the King of Magic (魔術王, Majutsu Ō?) for his mastery over magecraft. A son of David who was alive from around 1011 BC to 931 BC, he ruled as the third King of ancient Israel, and was said to be a great king who made the country enormously prosper. He was known for making many excellent political measures in his position as king, but also left behind many anecdotes as a magus. He married the daughter of an Egyptian Pharaoh, but was said to be later visited by God while he was dreaming on his bed. God said to Solomon, "You are qualified. Speak your wishes. I'll shall grant it", but Solomon only sought wisdom moreso than gold or political power. The answer satisfied God, the answer being proof that Solomon possessed the qualifications to obtain "true wisdom." Solomon awoke with ten rings upon both hands, the proof of a wise man recognized by God. Those rings came to be recognized as the Ring of Solomon, the "source of the magecraft that employs angels and demons."[1][2]

Solomon came to be known for employing seventy-two demon gods as his familiars, later leaving behind a manuscript that came to be called the Lemegeton or Goetia that tells of the art of controlling demons. He was the first individual to build the Temple of Israel. During his tenure, Solomon only accomplished a single miracle, but that was also said to exemplify his prudence. It was said that the people knowing that "the king is receiving God's protection" only a single time was best because more miracles could have served to frighten or corrupt the people. His single revelation established a "phenomena operation technique", magecraft that could be preformed by the hands of the common man that previously belonged only to those with connections to the god. Even without needing to utilize magecraft, he was recognized by his reputation as the King of Magic throughout neighboring countries and was said to have left the world as a wise king.[1][2]

His death marked a great acceleration in the decline of mystery, leading to the demise of the Age of Gods five hundred years before the time of King Arthur.[3]

AppearanceEdit

PersonalityEdit

Introverted, self-assured and passive. A laid-back king, without a hint of seriousness. The gist of his personality is “self-assured”, but this is simply the power to “no read the mood”. Thus, he is merely making statements on a self-assured manner, and his nature is that of a chicken. Although serious, he is not earnest and is constantly living at 80% power. He properly ascertained people, properly established laws and properly governed the country. Despite lacking in vigor, he was loved and respected by the masses as a wise, gentle king who was full of love.[1]

Yet, none of those traits came from Solomon’s own will. Having been ordained as a king from the moment he was born, Solomon had no choice but to hear the voice of God and act accordingly. His psyche is dispassionate and (having been deprived of the freedom to sympathize with the joys and sorrows of people) inhuman.[1]

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Solomon was the first successful Heroic Spirit summoned servant by Chaldea. He and ‎Marisbury Animusphere emerged victorious in Fuyuki's Holy Grail War, Solomon wished for a life as a normal human and became Romani Archaman. The wish he entrusted to the Holy Grail was “to become human”. Through the power of the Holy Grail, he did not “incarnated as a heroic spirit”, but instead was reborn as a new human that had no relation to King Solomon.[1]

Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit

Romani Archaman reveals his identity as Solomon, much to Goetia's disdained shock. Expressing that Solomon is too late to stop him, Goetia prepares to kill him, but Solomon activates Ars Nova, removing Goetia's immortality.[4]

Other appearancesEdit

Solomon was first mentioned in Garden of Avalon.[3]

AbilitiesEdit

He has three Noble Phantasms: Ars Nova, Ars Paulina and Ars Almadel Salomonis.
