Rolv's father was an Oath Man of Gunnar Ironside and so Rolv grew up in the Gunnar's hall with his sons, Ulf and Magnus.

Rolv was taught to fight, with spear, axe, shield and sword from being young so that he could one day serve Gunnar as his father had. After hs father was killed when fighting when Rolv was twelve years old, it left Rolv little, but his sword, which Gunnar gifted Rolv for his father's loyalty. After this Rolv earned his keep as a hunter, help by his skill with a bow.

Being close in age with Magnus they struck up a friendship, so when Ulf inherited the family's wealth and Magnus decided to go and find his own wealth Rolv was convinced to set sail with him.

After been in the army that captured the city renamed Jorvik, Rolv looked to settle and he married his wife, Bera working her fathers smallholding near Jorvik. He now has two children, Ada Rolvdottir, seven and Eirik Rolvson, four. Though content with hunting and farming, Rolv likes to go raiding with his friends often… you never get sick of the thrill of battle.
