Times have been tough for Solemaeus. Demand for his services has taken a nosedive in the wake of skepticism and negative portrayal of his kind in fiction. Despite the infinite cosmic power he possesses, modern humans have avoided him and his wish-granting services completely for the last two decades.
“It’s been hard lately, I’m not going to lie,” Solemaeus told reporters. “Back in the day, people were in awe of our godlike powers, and were more willing to take a chance on the grand promises we made them. Nowadays, ‘stranger danger’ is the law of the land. People take one look at me and assume I’m some homeless ex-convict or white supremacist.”
