"Penric's eldest brother Lord Rolsch had seemed a soberer hand on the helm, if only he hadn't been such a gull for every pious beggar ... to come down the pike."
―Rolsch's leadership[src]

Rolsch kin Jurald was the lord of a rural territory in the Cantons that includes Greenwell town. He inherited the position upon the death of his father, and initially made family poorer instead of wealthier. As a result, he spent some effort trying to find a money-making use for his youngest brother Penric.

When Drovo, another younger brother, died soon after joining a mercenary company, Rolsch stopped trying to encourage that job for Penric. His next plan, to marry Penric to a wealthy merchant's daughter, went badly as well.
