Persona

Rolland Ian MacPherson is a viking getting used to the idea that he is living in what is now Scotland. His father was from Norway and a teacher, follower and preacher of the old religion. After settling in Scotland after a raid and taking a Scottish wife, the family has been raised in viking traditions on one of the last isles in the Orkneys under Norse control. In 1150, taxes were deemed payable to the Scottish king and this has Rolland under constant consideration of abandoning his home and heading for his ancestral homelands.

His adopted name is Mac a'Phearsin (Macpherson) which translated is the "son of a parson (or vicar)" This started as a way to introduce him to Scottish mainlanders and is a reference to Rolland's father who reveled in the old stories of the gods.

Rolland's device and shield were awarded to him by Scottish king for participation in local contests and tournaments...
