The Paladin Roland, the nephew and favorite Peer of Charlemagne. Stepson of the traitor Ganelon. Wielder of the Peerless Sword, Durendal. His weapon contained within its golden hilt four sacred relics - a piece of the raiment of the Virgin Mary, a tooth of Saint Peter, blood of Saint Basil, and a hair of Saint Dennis.

This rendered the weapon indestructible - and in Roland's hands, it made him virtually invulnerable. Until his death at the Battle of Ronceveaux, he was Charlemagne's favorite. He was also the best friend of Sir Oliver, another of the Peers.

At the conclusion of the 7 Year War - the Paladin was betrayed by Ganelon, his own stepfather - fought the Saracens - and died after blowing three mighty blasts from his horn to signal the Emperor. He was discovered, dead on his feet, defiantly facing the enemy. Quite literally, his lifeless body was standing up - covered in wounds.

To prevent Durendal from falling into the hands of the enemy, he hurled it away - where it was planted into the side of a monastery - and because of his great strength, he is said to have driven it in so deeply that none could ever draw it again.
