Roland-B210 was a SPARTAN-III supersoldier of Beta Company who was part of the UNSC Naval Intelligence Beta-5 Division. He was a part of the elite Special Operations squad of Headhunters. He, along with Jonah-B283, led a semi-successful Mission to unidentified moon.
Induction into Headhunters
Roland was inducted into a two-man fire team as part of the special operations program known as "Headhunters". He was paired with Jonah after they were profiled as hitting 97.36 percent of the desired matchmaking criteria. Only one other team scored higher. Roland maintained an easy-going friendship with Jonah, frequently teasing his teammate over his violent tendencies.
Jonah and Roland were transported to an unknown remote moon in which the Covenant were searching for Forerunner relics. He, along with Jonah, had the mission to destroy six of the total ten Covenant encampments. For this mission Roland was given an experimental active camouflage module for his armor.
In the beginning of the mission, Roland infiltrated the base under cover from his semi-active camouflage to place explosives on four reactors while Jonah engaged the troops in the camp barracks. In this early phase of the mission, Roland placed the explosives successfully, without being spotted. Later on, he helped Jonah on eliminating the remaining targets, all of whom were still confused by Jonah's energy disruptions and flashbang grenades.
Right after Jonah had executed the seemingly last enemies in the base, Roland was impaled with an energy sword by a cloaked warrior of the Silent Shadow who donned a custom Sangheili armor. With his last breath, Roland managed to utter "...clear" to Jonah, which meant that the explosives were armed. Jonah detonated them shortly after, vaporizing himself, the cloaked Sangheili, and Roland's corpse.
