Roland Broom is the eldest son of Jason Broom and Darlessa Serret. He is the Lord of Broomsfield and the head of House Broom. He is married to Lady Janna Bettley who he has two children with, Gerold Broom and Aubrey Broom.
Roland has light brown hair that is beginning to turn grey, which he keeps short. He has a decently built body, but it is nothing compared to what his body once was during his younger years. He has dark green eyes.
His body is pockmarked with scars from the War of the Seven Banners, especially his left leg which still has yet to properly heal. His left leg has a tendency to have pain flares, which causes Lord Roland a great deal of pain.
Roland Broom was born to Lord Jason Broom and Darlessa Serret in 332 AC, in the fourth year of their marriage. His birth was a joyous occasion, as it strengthened the Brooms with a son and heir to the Lordship of Broomsfield. A scant two years later his younger brother Raynald was born, further solidifying the Broom line. Roland was a child who had a way with his words, most of the time convincing other children to join him in his many childish plans. Some say that his Voice held a powerful and commanding tone that makes it easier for him to command respect from his men, smallfolk, or anyone he talks to.
After learning how to properly command the respect, or at least the attention, of the local children, Roland begins his training with sword at the hands of Ser Stafford Bettley, Master-at-Arms of Castle Broom, by order of his father. His father hopes that the training will help him become an able commander. He would also learn riding from Ser Stafford, who would encourage him to continue his riding as he had a natural talent for it.
During his training under Ser Stafford Bettley, Roland takes to playing mock sieges with the other children. He would later approach Ser Stafford on the subject, and the Bettley knight would teach him of the strategy involved in being a fortifier. In the year 345 AC, Roland is introduced to his future wife, Janna Bettley. The two start off on a rocky start, as neither of them enjoy the thought of each other. The two eventually do find love in their match, and when they are wed three years later the two love each other.
In the year 362 AC, Janna Bettley becomes pregnant and later gives birth to a boy who is named Gerold Broom. The War of the Seven Banners also begins, and Roland leaves to participate in the war. Four years later in 368 AC, the war ends and Roland returns to his lands and family.
