Roland, also known as the Lifedrinker, was a wizard and scholar who studied at Cliffwall. After falling ill he found a spell to absorb life energy and keep himself alive. The spell worked but he did not know how to stop it. He fled Cliffwall to keep those there alive, killing many on the way. He stayed at the heart of the Scar, sucking the life out of the world, losing himself to the magic. He can create many creates to use for his purposes including dust people, spiders, centipedes, and lice. He was killed when Nicci threw the seed of the Eldertree into his mouth, giving him endless life to feed on, overwhelming him and destroying his body.
