The Prince of Herid
With his family line’s red hair and tall build, Roland looks every bit a descendant of Cyrus the Embermage.
Roland, only son of Vaughn Baines, the future king of Herid, has inherited the affinity for fire magic passed down through the Baines line. Said to be a spitting image of his grandfather, Roland’s temper is legendary throughout the city. Although Garran has tried to teach him mastery over both his magic and his attitude, at 18, Roland takes great pride in his heritage and his own power.
Roland has never left Herid, preferring instead to mingle with his people. Between training sessions with Mercer, Yuri, and Jalil, he can often be found at a pub near the castle grounds, gambling with fellow nobles.
