Grand Caster (グランドキャスター, Gurando Kyasutā?) is a Grand Caster acting as the main antagonist of the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order. His true identity is later revealed to be Beast I.



Grand Caster's True Name is Solomon (ソロモン, Soromon?), the King of Magic (魔術王, Majutsu Ō?). However, only the body is that of Solomon; the inside is of Beast I, Goetia. 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]

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]

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.[2]



His goal is the eradication of Humanity, that which he calls "garbage perpetuating a foolish history, the single greatest waste of space in the universe". All other Servants are beneath him in his eyes, not able to measure up to him in terms of the rank of their classes, rather than their ranks as Heroic Spirits.


Fate/Grand OrderEdit

After Solomon's death, the 72 Demon Gods, who were much like shadows of Solomon, were left behind to protect Human Order. Over time, the Demon Gods aggregated inside Solomon's corpse to form Goetia, Beast I.

Solomon appears as the final antagonist. After the defeat of Nikola Tesla and Lancer, Solomon would eliminate Shakespeare, Kintoki, Tamamo no Mae and Andersen.

Salomon: Grand Time TempleEdit

Goetia Reveal

Revealing his true form.

During Chaldea's skirmish on the Time Temple, Solomon is implored by Baal to activate Ars Almadel Salomonis to eliminate the Heroic Spirits. However, Solomon counters that more will only come, and states that only Ritsuka, the Heroic Spirits' only connection to the Singularity, needs die to remove them. Later, Solomon is confronted by Ritsuka and Mashu, to whom he explains both his Noble Phantasms and his plan to use the Magical Energy from humanity's destruction to power his true goal. He then goes to kill Ritsuka in order to remove the Heroic Spirits, but he is blocked by Mashu. Impressed with their resilience, Solomon decides to reveal his true form: Beast I, Goetia.

Other appearancesEdit

Solomon was first mentioned in Garden of Avalon.[2]


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

Solomon created the modern system of magecraft, when such magic was previously only available to those with connections to the gods. He possesses the Revelation skill, the ability to "hear the voice of heaven" and take optimum action, differing from Instinct in that it can guide all matters towards the achievement of an objective. Despite that, his only revelation was that which lead to the development of the human system of magecraft.[1] Mozart's music magecraft derived from Orpheus, but also has deep connections with the magecraft of Solomon just like in legends.[3] The ten rings granted by God allow for any and all magecraft performed by humans to be negated and placed under his control. He possesses EX-rank Clairvoyance, said to be able to see through the past and the future.[1] His power is such that even resurrecting himself and becoming a living Heroic Spirit is possible.


Main article: Demon God

Solomon excels in Evocation, the ability to summon spiritual bodies from the past or future. His own evocation focused on the spiritual existences known as the "seventy-two demon gods", establishing them as capable familiars.[1] Binding them was said to be "worthy of the name of the King of Magic, and each is said to surpass Heroic Spirits in power. It is possible for others to manifest this power, such as Lev Lainur Flauros turning himself into one and Jason being transformed through Medea Lily's usage of a Holy Grail. He is capable of summoning multiple demons at once to fight alongside him, referred to as the Angel of Four Pillars (御使いの四柱, ?) upon summoning four of them.
