Solanum III is the head priest of the Man of Zinc religion in Alkubra. He holds high religious and political power in the Alkubra region.

As a priest, he is allowed the touch and read the original holy books of the church. These books seem to be comic books of the Old World. He seems to always be available to preach about the Man of Zinc in Orth's Citadel of Loneliness, and offers services where he retells the stories he reads in the church holy books.

Solanum wears a priest hat and a robe bearing the text "Truth, Justice and America Only". Solanum and the church understand "America" as the holy land of absolute freedom and incredible abundance, where Man of Zinc lives and there's nothing to be afraid of because Man of Zinc protects everyone who lives there from all sorts of evil.

Solanum has a strong dislike of the Narizians because he believes that their prophet teaches them to use violence for the sake of violence. For that, Solanum thinks that Narizians are dangerous people and fears their violence may spread across Alkubra.

Solanum sees slavery as evil, but tolerates it in Alkubra because Workforce Merchants slavers hold Narizians back by hunting them. If the protagonist manages to make the Narizians leave Alkubra, Solanum will condemn slavery, making Calvin flee from New Serino and stopping slaves from spawning in Alkubra markets.

Solanum also dislikes the Liberation Army and the Qubba Government, but never states why at any point of the game. There are some hints in the game that the Qubba Government persecutes people for their religion, like Kukul's father, and this religion apparently is the Church of Man of Zinc.

Solanum likes the Federation, maybe thanks to the Federation's support for religious refugees, like Kukul's father. There are some hints in the game that the Federation has its own church of Man of Zinc, but Solanum seems to have no connection with the possible church there.

If the protagonist tells Solanum about Emilia's baby, Solanum will say he's pretty sure the baby and the baby's father are both demons - the same opinion Orion has when the protagonist asks her. Solanum will then advise the protagonist to kill the demon and ask professional help from Jacob Fulier, the best demon expert Solanum has ever met.

If the protagonist tells Solanum about Sapoboi Rodrigues being a cannibal, Sapoboi will be murdered by his own ranch guards before Solanum ever reveals it to the public.
