Roland, Duke of Xenon is one of the seven invitees: Greater Nobles summoned by General Gaskell. He is the father of Lady Ann.


He appears to be thirty-four or thirty-five years old, but his actual age is in excess of three thousand. His lack of refinement is made clear by his sagging belly and his demeanor toward the General. Made impervious to sunlight  by the general, he sunbathes in his underwear.


His womanizing ways extended to a woman who was a favorite of the Sacred Ancestor, and as punishment he was stripped of his title and sealed in a coffin for two thousand years, his brain set to remain conscious the whole time. He was deadlocked against Gaskell as a soldier for the Capital during the "G Revolt", and neither the duke nor the general know why he's working for Gaskell now. Although he destroyed his wife, he loves Lady Ann very much. So much to a fault. Because she resembles her mother so strongly he has violated her.

Gaskell uses this to manipulate him throughout. He is sent out by him after threatening to send out his daughter. Failing in his assault on D, he is forced to retreat. On hearing Dr. Gretchen was sent out he said if any harm comes to his daughter, he and all his clan would be turned against Gaskell, at which point he hastens to send Memeht out to have her cease and desist any further action which would most likely end in putting Lady Ann in harms way. He also fails to stop her. After repeated failures in going out again against the hunter General Gaskell decides to offer their lives to Lord Rocambole in order to kill D.
