Usually when he is lecturing people, either on their own stupidity or the force. His default emotion seems to be stoicism meshed with dry wit, he can seem nearly unshakable at times, in fact he just might be, and because of this he sometimes comes off as having no sense of humor. In truth, he does he is just so incredibly dry in his delivery most people miss it.

BIOGRAPHY: Born on Coruscant years before the Clone Wars Sol was identified as a Force-sensitive in the cradle. Like most, this means he was taken in by the order without ever getting the chance to know any other life. There wasn't anything particularly special about Sol, his gift with the Force was more or less average, his aptitude in his studies was fairly average, and he had a fairly average number of friends among his fellow students. The only thing that made him somewhat unique was a natural ambidexterity which lead to him learning the Jer'Kai lightsaber forms. This more than anything contributed to him being selected as padawan to Jedi Master Drell Vaso, who shared the young Sol's unique trait.
Underneath Master Vaso's tutelage, Sol began to blossom showing far more promise than he had as an initiate. This was mostly due to Vaso having a rather loose adherence to the Jedi Code and treating Sol more like a son than an apprentice. Being given a measure of familial affection he'd never known he was starved for Sol worked tirelessly to make Vaso proud, making up for a lack of talent with hard work. This eventually paid off when he became a full Jedi Knight soon after he turned twenty, unfortunately, this was not the only thing to happen soon after he turned twenty.
The Clone Wars started soon after Sol was inducted as a full member of the order. Since he was still so green he continued to work with his former Master as they participated in the Jedi's early battles. Vaso was of the opinion that the Jedi should not involve themselves in the war but was unwilling to let his fellows fight without him, a philosophy his apprentice shared at first. After a year of fighting the young Sol was beginning to grow cynical and jaded his generally rose-colored view of the order fading away. This came to a head during a minor skirmish on Dantooine where tragedy struck.
Master and apprentice were aboard a troop carrier that was shot down by an unexpected anti-aircraft installation. Using the Force Master Vaso managed to absorb the brunt of the impact when the ship landed but against the odds a piece of shrapnel from the explosion had pierced his chest. The man who had been like a father to Sol died in his arms. His view of the order already dimmed by the war, Sol found his faith in the Jedi shattered with his master's death. Sol fled the battlefield and was put down as KIA when it proved impossible to identify all the bodies in the immolated remains of the wreckage.
Disenfranchised Sol became a mercenary, avoiding work for the two major factions and instead lending assistance to minor players within the theater of war. He also started seeing a psychiatrist and worked through his grief slowly over time. These days he still works as a mercenary and he still explores the mysteries of the Force. However, he has developed his own philopshy which differs quite a bit from the Jedi one.
