    To answer your question though, there might be a nod to the movie or two but there are enough differences where I would say he's not based on that character

    If Solaire had Holy Hand Grenades, I would actually enjoy summoning him for O&S.

    'What is the capital of Assyria?'
    '....I don't know that!' *Sunlight Maggot latches to his face*

    Anyways, some moar interesting stuff, Arthur was believed to be another name for a guy called Lucius Artorius Castus, so Artorias could be also a reference to King A, but nothing else fits in.

    Yeah I think it's generally accepted that solaire is a reference to king arthur with his chest plate, his general demeanour and also to the black knight as the have the same helmet:








    Just a shout out to the legendary befowler with his king arthur:



    (this was in the top 100 results when i googled "Solaire dark souls" haha
