Sol Guilty Gear Strive
Ramlethal. You can't define happiness with a single piece of glass. The only wall you're fighting is your doubt. So, I say smash it to bits. Go wherever you want to go.
~ Sol to Ramlethal

You're damn right, Axl Low! THE FIRST ROUND'S ON ME!
~ Sol to Axl upon transformation


Sol Badguy is the main character in the Guilty Gear series and Ky Kiske's eternal rival. At first glance, he is an aloof, anti-hero bounty hunter, whose apparent laziness and gruffness belies his terrifying fighting ability, amazing intelligence and emotional depths beneath that brash exterior.
