Roc is a wolf shade and leader of the desert wolves. 1,300 years ago Roc was a dog raised by an old man and was forced into becoming a ‘Gestalt’. He became the leader of a pack of wolves and having fond memories of the mans care wished to live peacefully with the ‘Replicants’ but after the ‘Replicants’ destroyed their forest and killed their comrades Roc had enough and led his pack into Facade during the kings wedding, killing his bride Fyra.
The king sought revenge and as he landed the final blow Roc’s lasts thoughts were that of the old man as he passed away. The old man told Roc that he had lived too long, but his furry friend still had life in him and thanked Roc for being a good friend, saying to think of him every now and then. Roc died saying, "What have we done to deserve... such a fate?", "My father..."
"Is this all that remain? The humans will be upon us shortly. We can make our escape if we move now. I hear you, my brothers. And I share your desire to die with honor. Your resolve is strong, and your pack thanks you. The lives of our comrades! For the pride of our pack! Death to the invaders!" -Roc
"We can never forgive you humans! There shall never be peace between us!" -Roc
"Horrid beast! Die! We cannot know peace as long as you draw breath!" -King of Facade (to Roc) "Those were my very words, human!" -Roc (in reply)
Roc’s name comes from the huge bird ‘Roc’ that Sinbad meets in the Arabian Nights.
