ソロン・ジー, Soron Jī
Illustration Ishikawa Fumi
Solon Jhee (ソロン・ジー, Soron Jī) is a minor antagonist in Suikoden II. A member of the powerful Jhee noble family, Solon quickly rose through the military ranks and presided over several early campaigns of the Dunan Unification War.
Solon was the second son of the Jhee family, a powerful noble family formerly within the Highland Kingdom. Since his father and elder brother did not have faith in his political skills, he chose to enter the Highland Army and rose to the command of the 4th Royal Highland Company, leading Highland's initial attacks against Jowston.
As he became a general at a young age, Solon was lacking in experience and had a large amount of pride. It was also said he lacked prudence and discretion while leading his men.
In the Dunan Unification War, Solon was let down by a series of successive setbacks, most importantly when he attacked the old ruins at North Window. Having no experience with naval battles, Jhee did not factor in the possibility of being flanked from the lake shore. This is exactly what happened, with units arriving by ship and almost surrounding Jhee before he retreated.
Following this disastrous defeat, Solon Jhee failed to pacify Luca Blight's anger and was ordered to be beheaded immediately, ending his life in disgrace.
