Solitas[2] is the northernmost continent of Remnant on which the former Kingdom of Atlas was located. Within the Kingdom was the City of Atlas, based around Atlas Academy, as well as the city of Mantle, the former capital of the Kingdom.

Solitas has a cold climate, which makes it mostly inhospitable to both Humans and Grimm. It's described as easy to get lost in, especially in its tundras. In certain areas, forests such as the Snowbound Forest are capable of growing. Wildlife amongst in Solitas is shown to include prize deer and penguins.

Auroras, or polar lights, are often seen in the night sky of Solitas.

Over time, the Creatures of Grimm grew to adapt to the cold of Solitas, now said to be the strongest species of Grimm.[3] However, the Grimm adapted at a supernaturally fast rate, leading many to wonder the cause of this change.[4] Grimm that adapted to this climate include the Megoliath and Sabyr, amongst others.

The majority of the continent was shown to be featureless with the exception of ice, as seen in "With Friends Like These". However, there were stone arches and pathways leading out of Mantle with an abandoned Atlas Military outpost stationed nearby.

The continent later had a river of Grimm Liquid formed in it due to Monstra producing the substance.

After the Kingdom of Atlas was destroyed, the continent was abandoned with at least thousands of its residents using a passageway to evacuate to Vacuo.[5]

Native Grimm


  • Solitas is a Latin word for "loneliness" or "solitude".
  • During the RWBY Live from Remnant stream that aired before Volume 7 premiered, Miles Luna stated that Solitas was Remnant's version of Antartica.[6]
