The Family Dia is a pious and powerful (if poor) political family on the thrice-cursed world of Burnscour. As part of their regular Tithes to the Imperium, this family offers its firstborne to service of the Emperor, and has a host of past priests and pious confessors attributing their heritage to the respectable Dia line.

The birth of Rolland Dia may well change this habit, as when he was borne, his blood was as toxic as the rain that falls upon the surface of Burnscour. He was accused of being unclean, and a blight upon the Dia name. He was given the name “Rolland”, after a fallen Confessor who became a Chaplin of Chaos, and the name is ill-omened. He sought to shirk his duties of service to the Ecclesiarchy, however when the tithe fleets came, Rolland was forced into servitude.

Over the years, Rolland became more pious and faithful, and less resentful of his lot. He learned the beauty of praising the God Emperor, and purging the other unclean, especially heretics and xenos. Upon the day of his christening into The Emperor’s Ecclesiarchy, at the ceremony (during the cutting of cake!) a heretical Chaos Cult’s dark plan came to fruition – a warp rift opened in the Great Citadel of Amaris IV. While the daemons were repelled at great cost, the warp’s dark influence reached into Rolland’s body, infesting his skin, and shocking his soul. Hither-to unforeseen Psykic Powers awoke within Rolland, as he purged the Daemon with holy promethium and chain-sword.

Embarrassed with the unclean Confessor, the Ecclesiarchy sent Rolland on a “mission” into the Koronus Expanse, and got caught on Footfall. Recently, he was recruited by a mutant-captain Alec Martek of the Penance of Iocanthos – a beautiful transport full of Imperial Righteous iconography and holy temples, as well as mutants and other unclean. Rolland found his place, his flock, and his purpose.

His actions got him noticed by the Explorers, and they asked the good Confessor to join the command crew on matters of Faith.
