Bio

Even those who work closely with Roland would never say they know him well. They know he is a tireless agent for the Bureau of Investigation with a knack for conspiracies and the occult. They know he follows every letter of the law—even to his own detriment—and that his belief in the justice of the law is second to none. But they do not know him. Thy do not know the things he has seen or the doubts that cloud his thoughts. If ever his faith in the system was shaken, they would never know. He says nothing. He sees everything.

Defeated Encounters

Loss of Health

The doctors tell you that before he slipped into a coma, Roland had left specific instructions for you. Gain all of his possessions and any number of Service Assets he set aside. His condition is deteriorating quickly and you pay to have a specialist flown in from abroad to treat him (Influence). If you pass, Roland recovers enough to tell you what he has seen; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, the specialist arrives too late and Roland quietly passes in the night. Whether you pass or not, discard his Investigator token.

Loss of Sanity

You spend days searching for Roland without success until one night, he finds you. He throws his belongings at you and begins to babble endlessly about a variety of unrelated subjects. Gain all of his possessions and any number of Service Assets he set aside. You struggle to decipher his confusing monologue (Observation). If you pass, you understand the message he means to convey; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, you hear nothing but meaningless gibberish. Whether you pass or not, discard his Investigator token.

Team Role

Roland can set aside Service assets to be used later, which is very useful since the main drawback of a service is that it must be used immediately. This has the benefit of easily cycling the reserve for more powerful cards as well. He also has a high Observation skill and the ability to spawn clues, making him great for Research Encounters.
