HistoryEditSimon lived in the mining town of Gotham, located near one of the Yggdrasil. He lived with his younger siblings and was at least acquainted with Arthur when they were kids. Ten years prior to the start of the first game, a great disaster struck when one of the ruined laboratories connected to Gladsheim activated the weapon, Gungnir, to destroy the Yggdrasil Core near its vicinity, which happens to be the Yggdrasil near Gotham. The weapon was able to activate and destroy the core, but its destructive power also destroyed the Yggdrasil and all the towns near it. It destroyed everything and killed everyone, except Simon and Arthur, whom the former saved from near death. The two fled their devastated home to the Midgard Library. The two were taken in, raised and educated. Simon read the many tomes and books of the Library and developed a thirst for knowledge and became quite the intellectual. It was in Midgard where Simon trained to become a medic. Though Arthur seemed to have forgotten most of the details of the disaster as a result of being traumatized, Simon never forgot the horrors that transpired that day.
- EO2U implies that Simon, Arthur, and Raquna were given VIP status for their deeds in Etria. Flavio and the Protagonist refer to him as their superior during the Tindalos sidequest.
- Simon has been known to use the alias 'Ryle' when going undercover.
