Salomon Geonette is a Breton commoner who resides in his home in the Temple District of the Imperial City. He is a musician who got a commission from the Emperor to compose a symphony, but the Emperor's demise has left him in confusion.
Salomon says when the Elder Council chooses a new emperor, then his commission will be sorted out; but until then, he has to keep working.
Imperial City "Soon, the Elder Council must choose a new emperor, and then I suppose they'll sort out my commission. Until then, I just have to keep on working."
