Biography[edit]

Conscription[edit]

Solomon-069 was a genetically, intellectually, and physically gifted child chosen for the SPARTAN-II project. He was known to be agressive and headstrong amongst his peers. He was abducted by the Office of Naval Intelligence and replaced with a flash clone when he was around six years old. He and seventy-four other children were taken to Reach in the Epsilon Eridani system. There, he was trained by the "dumb"AI,Déjà and Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez, with the two serving as the Spartans' teacher and drill instructor, respectively. In 2519, he was taken alongside his fellow trainees to a Military Wilderness Training Preserve for a mission that required each trainee to be left alone in the woods with a only a single piece of a map. It was up to them to find one another so that they could piece the map together and locate the designated extraction point. The mission was ultimately a success. At another point during training, Solomon and the others traveled to Emerald Cove for an underwater mission. There, they abandoned Mendez and lived on their own on an island for a few days. By July 14, 2523, Solomon and his fellow Spartan-IIs had begun facing the formidable and ruthless UNSC Marine Corps' Tango Company in simulated war games. On March 9, 2525, Solomon and the rest of the Spartan-II candidates underwent their augmentation procedures at Medical Facility Endurance orbiting Reach. After successfully enduring the procedures, Solomon later attended a military funeral aboard the carrier, the UNSC Atlas, in the Lambda Serpentis system for the Spartans who died during the process. Afterwards, they all returned to Reach for their final training phase in the Highland Mountains.

After the Covenant attack on Harvest and the beginning of the Human-Covenant War, Solomon and the rest of the Spartan-IIs were brought to the Reach FLEETCOM Military Complex, where Rear Admiral Michael Stanforth and the AI, Beowulf, briefed them on the emerging Covenant threat. In response, the training of Solomon and the rest of the Spartan-IIs was accelerated, and the Spartans were sent to Chi Ceti IV in the Chi Ceti system to receive their new MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor from the Damascus Materials Testing Facility in order to aid in combat against the alien threat. While en route to Chi Ceti IV aboard the Paris-class heavy frigate, the UNSC Commonwealth, they were attacked by the Covenant warship, Unrelenting. The Commonwealth was able to ward off the Unrelenting and the Spartans were deployed to Chi Ceti IV with Halsey, where they each recieved a set of armor. While the Spartans were returning to the Commonwealth, the Unrelenting returned and engaged the frigate. To provide aid to the Commonwealth, John had Solomon and the other Spartan-IIs use thruster packs to embark towards the Unrelenting so that they could destroy the warship with Anvil-II AS missiles, though only John, Kelly, and Sam made it aboard.[2]

Netherop[edit]

Solomom served alongside Green Team, led by Kurt-051 as of early 2526. On March 5 of that year, he and eleven other Spartans were organized into an assault squad assigned to board and capture a Covenant frigate, Radiant Arrow, orbiting the planet Netherop. He and the rest of the squad were deployed from the prowler UNSC Starry Night for an EVA boarding action in order to accomplish this task.[3]

The Package[edit]

Solomon moments before his death.

In 2544,[4] he participated in an operation to retrieve a captured Catherine Halsey from a Covenant Fleet, along with a team consisting of Arthur-079, Kelly-087, Fred-104 and led by John-117. Operating a Booster Frame in an attempt to infiltrate a Covenant ship, he detected a signal from one of many CCS-class Battlecruisers in the fleet, managing to enter through a hangar and reach what he assumed to be their target. However, it turned out to be a Covenant Antimatter Charge, after this discovery, the bomb subsequently detonated. The explosion destroyed the ship, killing Solomon with it. In accordance of the ONI Directive 930, Solomon was presumably listed as Missing in Action.[1]

Trivia[edit]

Solomon was voiced by Jovan Jackson.[5]
