Rolond Lofts (b. 243 HE[1]) is the son of Tansy Lofts and Herun Lofts. Ammon Lofts, also known as Crookshank, is his great-grandfather. He seems to have had quite a friendly character as he "went up to everyone just as friendly as you could ask for"[1] and "laughed whenever he saw a new face"[2].

Three-year-old[1] Rolond is strangled in March of 246 HE[3] by the Shadow Snake, although Crookshank suspects the Rogue, Kayfer Deerborn. His ghost isn't ready to pass on after his death, so he holds on to his pigeon until his mother tells him what happened.
