Like Talamir before him, Rojek is from the Giyano Clans, a group of nomadic horse traders. Unlike Talamir, Rojek had been fostered out a few times, and was no longer uncomfortable under a roof.
He was described as "unusually tall for his age... and very thin; with his unruly puff of white-blond hair he looked like a dandelion gone to seed." (The Valdemar Companion: "A Herald's Journey") He also has eyes the same blue as his Companion's.
Rojek was Chosen by Civera, a "neat-footed little mare as long in the leg as her Chosen..."
His Gifts are not enumerated.
Details of his internship are unknown.
