Roke was born a blackskin nomad and was a close friend of Enhu. Perhaps because of his combat skill or his ambition, he rose to the rank of Master Stargazer relatively quickly. He has perhaps the most authority of all the Stargazers, and his word is rarely questioned or challenged.
Roke keeps his head shaven and rarely leaves confines of the monastery. He is a powerful fighter and has joined the order of the Sacred Fists - swearing never to use a weapon other than his own body.
