Ikta Solork (イクタ・ソローク Ikuta Sorōku) is the male protagonist of Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyō no Alderamin.
Ikta is a young man with black hair and eyes. His irises are quite tiny, but in the anime, they're a normal size, giving him fairly different look compared to the light novel. He wears a green military uniform. Ikta is missing his pinky finger on his left hand.
He skips all his classes and has never shown up at graduation ceremony every year. He lives an idle life, wasting his time chasing girls or taking naps. He hates handsome men and has a habit of threatening them.
He can't forgive people in the ruling class who can't behave intellectually, especially those who give up on trying.
Ikta lacks physical strength and motivation. He is also unskilled with the sword and gun, but he is remarkable as a strategist and tactician.
Ikta will hit on any older girl he's met the first time. Ikta likes girls that are older than him.
Ikta is usually blunt and pessimistic, but is always truthful. He sees everything from a realistic point of view, unlike the naive members of the empire such as Yatorishino.
He also cares greatly for his family and friends, as when Chamille disrespectfully brought up his mother’s history as a sex slave to the emperor, he nearly strangled her to death and threatened her with great rage, despite her social position.
Solork is not his real family name, it is the name of an orphanage. His true name is Ikta Sankrei.
Ikta's Kioka accent was taught to him by his mother, Yûka Sankrei. When the Empires victory was achieved, the emperor granted his favorite woman taken from the Kioka Inner Palace to General Bada as a reward for his distinguished service in the war.
The one that taught Ikta science is Professor Anarai Khan. Ikta calls him master.

When a terrible storm forces them to escape on a lifeboat, Ikta saves a girl that falls from the ship and into the water. That girl is Katjvarna's 3rd princess Chamille Kitra Katjvanmaninik. The six find themselves swept away and get stranded in Kioka Republic territory. The border dividing the Kioka Republic and the Katjvarna Empire is near, albeit heavily guarded. When Ikta proposes to yield as prisoners of war, Chamille promptly rejects the idea. Ikta becomes irritated and speaks freely to the girl, regardless of her superior rank. Yatori kicks him to the ground.
That night, Chamille goes to the toilet, being unable to bear it anymore. She unwittingly crosses their makeshift security system line, triggering the alarm composed of bells back at the camp. To Chamille's horror, three soldiers from the Republic come to investigate. Back at camp, the others wake to the sound of the bells and determine that the princess is missing. Ikta, Yatori, and Torway go to rescue her. On the scene, Ikta successfully deceives the Kioka patrol, leaving Torway and Yatori free to kill them. In the morning, Ikta disguises himself as a soldier of the Kioka army and tricks the Commander into letting all six of them cross the border into the Katjvarna Empire.
They all were taken in by the guards of empire side and politely transport to an encampment in the rear. They met Lieutenant General Hazarf Khan. Hazarf requests an exemption to capital about their interrupt examination. Ikta tells Hazarf to abandon the eastern region but Hazarf says he can't because that is their duty to defend the eastern region.
One month later, Hazarf dies, as Ikta predicted, and the eastern region is now completely under Kioka Republic control. He scoffs at their blind loyalty and meaningless deaths, much to Yatori’s dismay. All of them have been granted an honorable audience at the palace by Katjvarna Emperor, Arshankrut Kitra Katjvanmaninik. All of them have been granted the title of "Imperial Knight".

All of them got a own incineration training platoon. Ikta 2nd commander is Suuya Mittokalif, daughter from mother Ikta secret lover. Suuya hate Ikta and the story about Ikta and Suuya mother relationship already spread through the whole platoon. After this, Ikta thought probably no one will listen to his command. They suddenly got mock battle practice. Ikta made a deal with Suuya. If Ikta win the mock battles under his command that means she need to approve him as a commander. During mock battle, Ikta shown a remarkable skill with arrive at camp before sunset and able to predict a landslide that prevent their platoons from get injured.

She wants Ikta to lead the entire empire's army and lose the war against Kioka kingdom because she wants to change this country as the Empire has already lost the ability to fix itself by it's own power, the Empire's system has degraded so much. In the end, she asks him to fight together with her until their ultimate defeat and she decideds to walk to hell together with Ikta.
