Knight Commander Roderic
Commander of the "Redcoats", the King's army
A veteran of three wars, Roderic commands the “Redcoats” – the King’s Army. While loyal to the king, he doesn’t trust adventurers who he blames for the recent civil war, and he is prone to seeing enemies where there are none. He would have preferred Tuirean to ascend to the throne rather than some untested boy, though he tries to keep these sentiments to himself.
Roderic’s dislike of adventurers also stems from the death of his son in Dragon Mountain. His son joined the band of young adventurers led by Kirito and died facing kobolds. Roderic was ordered by the King to not seek retribution against Kirito, but the Knight-Commander holds a grudge.
