Background Information:

Sol is a man of relatively few words. He's been alive for almost two hundred years, and in that time he's found no advantage to be had in "trying his best". All he's found that to be is a waste of time and energy. His lack of desire to expend effort in speaking is reflected in everything he does. While he'll fight when necessary, or when motivated by the things he does feel strongly about, he'll do it efficiently. Better, he thinks, to have a few well-placed strikes than to keep trying and hope that something does what he needs it to.

Before he became a Gear and changed his name to Sol Badguy, Sol was a human scientist named Frederick. He was one of the lead scientists on the Gear Project along with That Man and Aria, hardworking and on the edge of a breakthrough. When that breakthrough came, Frederick was chosen to be the prototype Gear. His body was genetically and magically modified to make him other than human.

At that point in time Sol split from That Man and focused his attention on staying as human as he could. He made a suppressor to keep from transforming fully into a Gear, thinking that he needed his humanity (and his control) to serve the cause he wished. He also created a type of weapon, called the OutRage, to enable humanity to fight the other Gears which That Man created. His reasons for doing so were two-fold: his guilt at having been a part of the Gear project and his anger at That Man for using him. Those two emotions continued to drive him throughout the next hundred and fifty years, first as an independent agent, then as a soldier in the Sacred Order of Holy Knights, then as an independent bounty hunter again. Sol has also been influenced less significantly by many other people in his life.

The first of these is Kliff Undersn. It was for Kliff that Sol joined the Sacred Order, since Kliff was willing to accept him as a fighter there despite Sol's unorthodox methods and inability to fit into a regular military structure. Kliff had a pragmatic view towards the war and humanity's need to win it, so while he undoubtedly suspected Sol of not being an ordinary human he didn't challenge Sol on it. As long as that remained the case, Sol could follow the bare minimum of orders.

Where Sol clashed most with the ideals of the Sacred Order of Holy Knights is clear with his interactions with Ky Kiske, Kliff's fifteen-year-old protégé and then successor. Where Kliff had been willing to let Sol go off on his own to fight Gears, Ky was much less comfortable. Sol, despite not wasting words, also isn't polite about the ones he does choose to use. He would much rather tell someone to fuck off than think up a way to say it politely. If the first method will still result in them leaving him alone then he doesn't care if his way of demanding it makes them pissy. This general attitude was amplified in Sol's dealings with Ky. When Ky attempted to punish Sol's insubordination and force him to better toe the line, Sol decided that enough was enough and left the Sacred Order, taking with him one of the elements of the OutRage. Ky chased after him for the theft, but Kliff stepped in to give the element to Sol as a gift. Neither Ky nor Kliff were aware that Sol was the original creator of the OutRage, and to Sol the fact that he decided he needed it, that the UN was keeping it in storage instead of using it in battle, and that Ky had pissed him off were the main reasons he took it.

The last important relationship is Sol's relationship with Dizzy. While he hasn't had extensive contact with her, he knows that she's a Gear. Sol has made it a personal mission to destroy what Gears there are -- that aren't him -- in part to protect humanity and in larger part to try to destroy That Man's vision from coming true. Sol spares Dizzy, however, because she has an innocence to her that he doesn't want to be the one to end, and because he recognizes that it isn't the fault of those who are Gears, but what they do with them. He also sees a potential in her to be something other than just a Gear, and that would serve as well for interfering with That Man's plan. Sol's choice to spare Dizzy despite the fact that she could become a threat on the level of Justice -- who humanity fought for the last hundred years against -- shows he can be motivated by emotion rather than logic, even if he wouldn't go admitting that to anyone.

Sol is prone to nostalgia in the area of music, although he would phrase it instead as the idea that music in the last hundred and fifty years certainly hasn't been any better. His main hobby is listening to Queen and he carved the words 'Rock You' into his headband as a reference to the song "We Will Rock You". He can play the guitar.

On the side that he doesn't talk about, he doesn't see any point to doing so, Sol is quite a good cook and has before been a very good scientist. He has a natural desire to take things apart and figure out how they work, although he has for the most part suppressed that desire in the wake of the Gear Project and with the UN outlawing many types of technology. He still has much greater scientific knowledge and inkling than most people born during the Crusades, but he doesn't do much more than is necessary for his own use. Sol is an acquired name (since his original one was Frederick) from Eripmavs D Yraid, while he was designated as "Badguy" by the authorities, who were unable to identify him after he destroyed several Gear manufacturing facilities.

In summary, Sol is rude, abrupt, and focused by his guilt and anger. His length of life and what he has seen during it have made him jaded, but his desire to make things at least better, since he can't make them right, as well as a dislike of giving up keeps him fighting. Far from what his name implies, Sol is not a bad guy, he simply doesn't always follow the rules or make nice with people for the sake of sugarcoating how things are.


As a Gear, Sol in his game is quite powerful without ever unleashing his full power. In the game he wears a band over his forehead to both cover the brand on his forehead and to suppress his more extreme powers and keep his humanity intact. Sol's magic abilities are flame-based, and the Gear form that he never ever wants to resort to is dragon-influenced ( is probably not the full form). He fights with Fuuenken (Fireseal), a thing that doesn't fully bother to be a sword (may or may not have a sharp edge) but does greatly amplify his fire magic. In addition to that, Sol's been a geneticist and engineer, and is genius-level even if he's not in the habit of showing it any longer.

Added 12/14/15: In addition to before, the ability to heal much faster than normal. Gear cells allow for regeneration, the healing of minor wounds (cuts/scrapes) in a matter of seconds and the healing from more major wounds in minutes. He can still be killed it just takes a little more than what would take out a human.


First Person:
[Sol’s not usually someone with a lot to say, and that’s a large part of the reason he hasn’t touched the network before now. It’s a bunch of useless chattering about how no one knows what’s going on or been able to piece together the way to fix it and really? How much does that need to be talked about? On the other hand, this is a pretty good way to pool resources, and the best these people can come with a roster of the people here?

So he barely bothers to read or listen to the messages, and it’s why he doesn’t start with an introduction. What does it matter if they’re all in this together? Having a name won’t mean having a connection.]

Why doesn’t everyone go around in a circle and say th’most interesting thing they’ve learned about this place?

[Yes, he’s making fun, but he’s also serious. Maybe if he’s lucky some people will take it and go with it, instead of expecting him to answer the responses. He’ll try to put the puzzle pieces together, of course, but he doesn’t want to be the only one doing that, and Sol figures he’s already done his part in soliciting that information.]

Third Person:

Sol’s not someone who lives in a home, or who has much need of one. That doesn’t mean he’s complacent about having the building he’d been squatting in disappear the moment he steps out of it. While he stills, like he’s still sleepy, his ochre eyes are narrowed, already looking carefully for a sign of what has occurred. The sun is going down, and Sol’s hand goes to the suppressor on his forehead before he stands, taking advantage of the lingering light to step truly into the world.

He doesn’t notice the chill, but that’s only right. His body flows with fire magic and it’s much less common for there to be a cold that would have an effect on him. There doesn’t need to be a physical cold, however, for him to be uncomfortable, for him to be able to pick up on the fact that things are wrong, and the differences are hardly subtle. He’s also, fortunately or not, used to feeling guilty, even if he’s not used to those feelings coming with this sort of hallucination.

He’s going crazy, he thinks with a sharp pang of amusement and pain, trying to turn his head away from the vision of Aria pinned by the claws of a Gear. He’s going crazy and he needs to make sure he’s not by any humans when he snaps the rest of the way. Even now, it wouldn’t do to hurt them.
