Simon, an orphaned youth who lives in a typical underground human settlement, spends most of his days exercising his incredible talent for digging with the aid of a hand-drill. Unlike his close friend Kamina whom he looks up to like an older brother, he can sometimes be unsure of himself and his abilities. However, in a pinch, he can be relied on to come through for his friends when everything is on the line.

If anyone had it the worst it was Simon no doubt. He lost his parents to the tremors from the Beastmen. His own blood borther, Kamina, died right in front of him and took all the blame for it. His own friend Rossiu put him on trial and he was forsaken by his own people in his own government. He fought for the same people that shunned him, just so they can live in peace without the anti-spirals, knowing that Nia would disappear. And then he lost Nia. 

His character development was the best no doubt. Started as Simon the digger, ended as Simon the digger.

XaronAngel, Kamina died because he was a reckless idiot and honestly, both the team and humanity would have never gone as far as it did if he hadn't.
