Roland is a member of the Order, trained to move in the shadows as an assassin for God. Orphaned at a young age, Roland learned to sneak, steal, and defend himself in the streets and alleys of the city as a matter of self-preservation. His life changed forever when he was taken in by Simon, who saw in Roland a spark of fierceness and purpose that distinguished him from the other urchins. Simon trained Roland as an apprentice and eventually initiated him into the Order when Roland was ready. Simon channeled Roland’s rebellious spirit into the Order’s unique method of serving God, directing his anger against the hypocrites who pervert the Church’s teachings for their own evil ends.

Roland’s first solo mission is to investigate and, if possible, resolve the undead threat around the Monastery of Lir and Stonewood. The Order believes there may be some connection between the Monastery and the rise of the undead, requiring the Order’s particular skills to investigate and eliminate.

Roland traveled to Stonewood with the Troupe, which he joined as a tumbler and acrobat. That cover remains intact, though as Roland devotes more time to his real mission, his relationship with the Troupe (and therefore his ostensible reason for being in Stonewood) is becoming strained.
