Born into a 16th Century puritan family in Devonshire, England, Solomon Kane had a sense of wanderlust which lead him to the sea and foreign lands. Described as a somber and gloomy man of pale face and cold eyes, all of it shadowed by a slouch hat - Kane set out into the world to fulfill his quest to destroy all evil.
