Roland's hospital was the second Templar base in Tyre, along with their stronghold. He was killed by Altaïr while he was interrogating a prisoner, who possessed the second key to the Temple of the Sand.
- Roland Napule had a rather uncanny appearance and role to Garnier de Naplouse from the original Assassin's Creed. His presence in game, as well as that of Tamir, may indicate that Altaïr's Chronicles was originally meant to follow the storyline of the original game.
- Roland is a name derived from Germanic elements hrod, meaning "fame, famous" and land. Napule is the name of Naples in Neapolitan.
