An individual from 1011~931 BC. The Third King of Ancient Israel The great king who made Ancient Israel prosper the most. Employing 72 demons, he is also the first individual to build the Temple of Israel. He performed excellent political measures as a king, but beside that also possess many anecdotes as a magus.
Solomon married with the daughter of an Egyptian Pharaoh, but it has been said that later God appeared in his dreams and said ｢You are qualified. Speak your wishes. I shall grant it｣. Rather than gold or political power, Solomon sought wisdom more than anything. God was satisfied. For that answer itself was proof that he had the qualifications to attain ｢True Wisdom｣. When he woke up, Solomon had ten rings inserted on both hands. They were the proof of the wise man recognized by God. Later, those would be called Ring of Solomon, the source of the magic that employs angels and demons.
Chaldea’s heroic spirit summoning; its first successful example. Secretly summoned by Marisbilly Animusphere, the grand magus that participated and achieved victory on the Holy Grail War of Fuyuki.
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.
Such was Romani Archaman. A quite ordinary young man, who wished to live as an 『individual』 that did not have anything of peculiar.
......However. The man who began his second life was unable to know the 『happiness, fulfillment as a human』 that was never given to him in his previous lifetime. Because the future of 『mankind’s demise』, which he caught a glimpse of right before becoming human, stole any kind of freedom from him.
Territory Creation: A
Creates an advantageous encampment to oneself as a magus. Having built the Temple of Israel, he is regarded as a greatest authority in regards to Territory Creation.
High-Speed Aria: C
A technique to hasten magic aria. Despite being fast, sometimes he makes a mistake due his worrywart nature and ruins everything.
Item Construction: C
Produces devices that carry magical power. Maybe because he has specialized in contracts, his Item Construction ability is of average level.
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 『not 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.
......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.
After becoming human, Solomon finally acquired the human nature called romance. At his roots, he is a realist and a pessimist. Despite uttering wishful thinkings as a mood-maker, he seems somewhat shameless due to inwardly thinking of them as pipe dreams. While he likes humans, because of his chicken side that 『does not want to see something sad』, he maintains a superficial socializing with anyone. In exchange, he can get along with anyone. An archetypal 『everybody’s friend』. He has a bad habit of, when caught in a dilemma, ending up choosing to either 『stick to observing without making any decisions』 or 『running away』 so that 『the status quo is preserved』. Since Roman himself is reflecting on such weakness of his, if someone in his surroundings were to just say a word - 『Please, do your best』 - he will somehow get a hold of himself and show a decisive judgment fitting of the king of magic.
Incidentally, because the first impression that any Servant ends up getting about Roman is 『I don’t get the reason, but he is at fault here』, they unconsciously complained at him. The only ones who did not find fault at him were those who were no Servants, crackpots and Berserkers that do not perceive evil as evil.
Ars Nova The Time of Parting Has Come, He Is the One Who Lets Go of the World
Rank: D Type: Anti-Unit
The first Noble Phantasm of King Solomon. Rather than Goetia, this is a Noble Phantasm possessed by the true King Solomon. A poem of farewell in which he relinquishes of all the exploits accomplished, all the miracles performed, all the magics established until then.
Upon invoking his Noble Phantasm, Solomon sends all the graces bestowed by God back to heavens and loses the eyes that gaze at the world. The result is King Solomon’s death. From another angle, this also means the self-destruction of the 72 demons. It can also be described as a safety device prepared by Solomon, in order to destroy ｢magic｣ when it becomes an evil for humans in the distant future. When this is employed as a Noble Phantasm, all traces of King Solomon are extinguished from this world. ───even from the Throne of Heroes.
