"We have just the glorious dead—and the soon-to-be glorious dead. I'm one of the latter."
―Rohlan Dyre

Rohlan Dyre was a Human male Mandalorian Crusader and a former commander who fought in the early skirmishes of the Mandalorian Wars. He deserted the wars multiple times in an attempt to find answers pertaining to the war itself. After the battle of the planet Vanquo in 3,964 BBY, Dyre deserted the Mandalorians once more and joined forces with the Jedi Padawan Zayne Carrick, the Snivvian con artist Marn Hierogryph, and the Last Resort's crew to rescue the female Arkanian offshoot Jarael from an abandoned Republic research station called Flashpoint Station. The station was being used as a base by the Mandalorian scientist Demagol while he experimented with captured Jedi Knights.

After Dyre, Carrick and his crew rescued Jarael and the Revanchist Jedi from the Mandalorians, Dyre was incapacitated by Demagol, whom Dyre had disabled earlier. The scientist assumed Dyre's identity and traveled with Carrick's crew. Dyre, encased in Demagol's armor, was taken to the galactic capital Coruscant by the Jedi Knight Alek Squinquargesimus and his fellow Jedi to stand trial. En route to Coruscant, Dyre fell into a drug-induced coma. Eventually, Dyre regained consciousness and was put on trial for Demagol's crimes against the Republic. During the trial, Squinquargesimus, now going by the name Malak, testified against the man whom he believed to be Demagol. After a riot began to break out, Dyre was rescued by Zayne Carrick and Marn Hierogryph when they realized that the Mandalorian who they had been traveling with was not Rohlan Dyre. The two asked Dyre for his aid in stopping Demagol, who was now accompanying Jarael after she left Carrick and his crew.

The Questioner

"But I'm not a hut'uun. I kill the enemy. Then I run—to search for the truth."
―Rohlan Dyre
Rohlan Dyre fled the battlefield in his quest to find answers.

An aged Mandalorian Crusader veteran,[1] Rohlan began to question the tactics of the Mandalorians and the motives behind the war. When Rohlan confronted his superiors with his concerns, he did not receive a satisfactory answer, so the next time he was called up, he did not answer.[2] Dyre was found, and as punishment for his desertion, he was placed at the front lines of the war. Rohlan continued to refuse to fight, and he was caught and placed at the front lines five times.[2] His last mission was as Commander of the Shocktrooper forces during the Battle of Vanquo. After his troops captured Jarael, believing her to be a Jedi, he personally hijacked the Last Resort in an attempt at escape.[3]

However, an enraged Camper stunned Rohlan, making it easy for Zayne Carrick to incapacitate him, sealing him in a cargo container. When Rohlan overheard his captors mention that they were headed into Mandalorian space, he offered his help as a guide and so explained his situation and where they were going: Flashpoint Station, where Jarael and a number of real Jedi were being held.[2]

The Flashpoint trick

"Repeat, I need clearance to land! I have a prisonner from Vanquo. Open the Magnetic Field."
―Rohlan Dyre
A drugged Rohlan in Demagol's armor.

Rohlan brought Zayne to Flashpoint Station as a prisoner. When they arrived, Demagol, a mad Mandalorian scientist bent on discovering what made the Jedi able to use The Force, was just about to conduct experiments on Jarael. Rohlan, however, demanded that Zayne be the next "experiment." Demagol complied, and Rohlan was able to overpower the scientist. Demagol was locked inside a storage closet, and Zayne took his armor. Rohlan and Zayne left the facility and Zayne, with the aid of the Force, secretly placed charges on key structural points. When Marn Hierogryph disguised as a Republic Admiral of the "Glomkettle", arrived, Carrick set off the charges, forcing the Mandalorians to evacuate. Rohlan ordered the Mandalorians to tell Mandalore that he perished with the facility in an attempt to "rescue" Demagol.[4] Rohlan then went back into the facility to retrieve Demagol. However, the Mandalorian scientist had regained consciousness and managed to drug and switch armors with Rohlan.

After the Mandalorians had left, Demagol, now masquerading as Rohlan, pretended to take his leave with the freed Jedi, but sneaked off the vessel at the last second and stowed aboard the Last Resort as it left the station, desiring to stay close to Jarael. After the Mandalorians had escaped (due to their belief that the Republic was attacking), Rohlan, who was now believed to be Demagol, was taken back to Coruscant by the formerly captured Jedi.[5] However, en route to Coruscant, he fell into a drug induced coma and could not be awakened for trial.[6]

A stolen identity

"I've told you -- Stop calling me that!"
―Rohlan Dyre

On Coruscant, "Demagol" was looked over by a nurse when he finally awakened. Rohlan began muttering about the search for the Jedi at Flashpoint. Surprised, the nurse called the guards to report this news to the Ministry of Defense immediately.[7]

Alek Squinquargesimus, now known to the galaxy as Malak, brought "Demagol" to the Ministry of Defense for trial. He wanted to ensure that the sadistic scientist was brought to justice, unaware that the man he was persecuting had helped rescue him at Flashpoint.[8]

At trial, Malak started voicing "Demagol's" atrocities towards the crowd. Rohlan shouted that he stop calling him by that name and broke his cuffs. Malak used the Force to fling Rohlan across the chamber as he declares that they will defeat the Mandalorians. Rohlan retorts that Malak can't beat his people in a fair fight. He demands to him if he saves the Republic, then who will save it from Malak himself. An angry mob gangs up, forcing security guards to rush Rohlan out of the building. After getting him onto a speeder, the guards revealed themselves as Zayne and Gryph. The pair had realized the identity-switch and needed Rohlan's help in rescuing Jarael from Demagol.[8]

As soon as they escaped Coruscant, Rohlan explained to both Zayne and Gryph what he learned about Demagol. He also expressed disgust when Zayne told him about how Demagol had sold his own daughter, Chantique, into slavery.[9]

Behind the scenes

According to John Jackson Miller, the name Rohlan "is partially inspired by the similarly sounding name of another warrior, the paladin of Charlemagne."[10]
