Roland is the fourth Dragon Hunter.
An orphan, Roland was left at one of the abbeys of the Brothers of the Holy Flame, a holy order of knights and priests who defend the faithful and do good works among the poor and dispossessed.
Roland learned both warfare and holy knowledge from these Brothers. The martial training built his physical strength while the religious training build his spiritual life. But it was not meant to last. Before he took full orders, a dragon raided the abbey, destroying it and Roland's family, the only family he knew, was killed to a man. Roland escape the flames and destruction only by being forced into the cellars during the fighting and then buried alive under the collapsed church.
After digging himself out and burying his mentors and brothers, he gathered what arms and equipment he could. Laying before the ruined altar, he prayed to the gods for blessing and strength to dedicate himself to hunting down dragons and slaying them. With no food or water for a week, at the point of death, a spirit from the gods approached him and granted him his wish but with a caution - one of his prey will kill him if he fails to keep the faith.
Now imbued with the holy wrath, Roland seeks out dragons to kill, knowing full well his death was foretold at the claws of one of them should he fail to remain pure.
