Born the second son to a peasant family on the feudal lands of House Zanzibar, a noble house of little-to-no note in the hills of the west edges of Glantri, Roland grew up hale and hearty, and thusly was drafted into the town's guard. Shortly after learning he was to be promoted to full man-at-arms status by the noble house, he was selected at random to accompany Wolric Zanzibar, the second to last son of House Zanzibar on his adventures. This turn of events sucked.
A few months after their journey began, Roland and Zanzibar met the Company of Crossed Swords at the Inn of the Welcome Wench as the Company searched for meat to act as shields in their forays into the dreaded moathouse. Joining the Company and being handed Yakutz the Bloody, Roland subsequently barely survived a battle with an ogre beneath the moathouse, whilst his patron Zanzibar was mashed into goo.
Seizing upon the opportunity, Roland quickly assumed Zanzibar's identity, crowning himself "Roland Wolfric, Lord Zanzibar - First Son of House Zanzibar". Roland is light on the details.
In the ensuing years, Roland has made his fortune, slowly bestowing (or having bestowed) various titles upon himself. His current nom du jour: Roland Wolfric, Lord Zanzibar, High Cavalier of the Ouestmarche, Knight-Consort of the House de Marais, Commander of the Company of Crossed Swords, and Sword Prince of Neutrality
