** From "The Moon of Skulls", though it's more the ''opposite'' of a boast; it's a sign of humility;
--->Nay, alone I am a weak creature, having no strength or might in me; yet in times past hath God made me a great vessel of wrath and a sword of deliverance. And, I trust, shall do so again.

The Solomon Kane stories (like most of Howard's writing) are a peripheral part of the CthulhuMythos. One story, "Death's Black Riders" (by Robert E. Howard and C.J. Henderson), pits Kane against Tsathoggua, a well-known [[EldritchAbomination Great Old One]].

'''Solomon Kane''' is a character created by Creator/RobertEHoward in 1928. He appears in several short stories by Howard published mostly in the pulp magazine ''Magazine/WeirdTales''. A 16th century Puritan, Solomon Kane wanders the world with no apparent goal other than to vanquish evil in all its forms. His adventures often take him from Europe to the jungles of Africa and back.

** Interestingly, the live-action movie provided some background as to Kane's motivation. In Howard's original stories, however, we are never given any motivation for Kane pursuing the life he does.
