| The War Between the Provinces |
|Type of Appearance:||Direct POV|
Rollant was a blond Detinan. He was born into serfdom in Palmetto Province on Baron Ormerod's estate. As a young man, Rollant escaped to the southern provinces and settled down in New Eborac City and worked as a carpenter. When eleven northern provinces rebelled against Avram, Rollant joined the Detinan army, which was racially integrated. He was assigned to the 26th New Eborac Regiment and served with General Guildenstern's army on the Rising Rock campaign, with Hesmucet's on the Marthasville campaign, and with Doubting George's during the defense of Franklin Province against Bell's desperate invasion.
Despite having to overcome the racism of his ethnic Detinan comrades, Rollant served well during the war, eventually rising to the rank of sergeant and becoming color-bearer for his company, surprising himself. On Proselytizers' Rise, he killed his former lord, Ormerod.
