Dr. Mehendri Solon was a Human physician and scientist of great renown, and a follower of the Time Lord tyrant Morbius.


Solon grew up on Earth. (DW: The Brain of Morbius). At some point, Solon authored a famous paper on microsurgical techniques in tissue grafting, which the Doctor had heard about or read. Solon managed to overcome the "problem of tissue rejection".

In 21st century terms, tissue rejection would refer to the incompatibility of the different tissues of separate individuals. Since Solon could graft together the tissues of separate, very different life forms from different spcies, Solons may have discovered for the first time, how to make this possible.

After writing and dogged by rumors that Solon had joined the personality cult of Morbius, Dr. Solon went into hiding on the planet Karn.

Although Morbius was executed and his body disintegrated, Solon managed to save his brain and was able keep it alive. (DW: The Brain of Morbius, PDA: Warmonger)

On Karn, Solon developed the techniques which enabled him to create a new body to house the still-living brain of Morbius, now believed executed. In an isolated castle on Karn, Solon was assisted by his simple Dravidian servant Condo. Spaceships often crashed on the planet, and Solon constructed a horrendous patchwork body out of the alien survivors' body parts, including a Mutt, a Birastrop and possibly a Macra. He planned to house Morbius' brain in it.

When the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith arrived, sent by the Time Lords, Solon needed only a head to finish his monstrous creation, and hoped to use the Doctor's. In his last moments, he managed to complete the surgical work on new Morbius, before the Doctor killed Solon by creating cyanide gas and blew it into his laboratory, an action which had no affect on Morbius himself.
