Rolf is one of the heroes in Calradia. He claims to be from the "noble and puissant" House of Rolf and is skilled in melee fighting and athletics. He can be hired for 300 denars.

He holds connections in Veluca. To help you claim right to rule, he is willing to make up a royal family line for you, which infuriates Firentis.

If elevated to lordship in Warband, Rolf will recruit whatever troops are available in his fiefs, regardless of nationality. Despite his noble lineage being highly questionable, the nobles of Calradia believe his claim, and you will not lose any relationship points with the lords if you promote Rolf to lordship.

If you travel near the village of Ehlerdah, he will tell you that the Swadian king declared the woods near the village his personal hunting grounds. According to him, an impoverished farmer and his family were desperate to survive, and risked poaching in the forest. The king found out about this, and ordered the family executed. The father's sons, not wishing to go the way of their parents, gathered together a group of ruffians and fled to the forest, preying on passersby and living off the land, and turning the forest into a haven for desperate or unsavory characters. Rolf will simply say he was captured by them and they intended to ransom him, but escaped, and he will say no more. Deshavi, however, will say more; according to her, he was once a bandit amongst a group called the Brethren of the Woods. Rolf does not discuss this and instead focuses on how Deshavi, a woman "of basest birth" refuses to address him by title or honorific, something he dislikes. In a similar vein, Bunduk does not treat him as a noble and Rolf dislikes such. Baheshtur respects Rolf's audacity in his claim despite not believing it, which Rolf appreciates highly.


Rolf Full

"Greetings. I am Rolf, son of Rolf, of the most ancient and puissant House of Rolf."

"Really? Well, perhaps your ignorance can be forgiven. Our ancestral lands are far away, over the mountains."

"Like all the men of my family, I have come to a foreign land to make a name for myself in the profession of arms before returning home to take over custodianship of my estates. Unfortunately, the authorities in these lands have little understanding of the warrior code, and have chosen to call me a bandit and brigand, and put a price on my head -- a most unfair libel to throw at a gentleman adventurer, you will surely agree."

"But I am anxious to avoid any further trouble, so if you knew of any company of fighting men where I might enlist, I would be most grateful."
