“S-someone! Come to my aid! All is lost if I fall! ”
—Roartz in The Binding Blade.

In Chapter 20B, he was defending a large manor on the outskirts of Bulgar against Roy and his army after Brunya decided to return to Bern.
- Vs. Douglas
Roartz: Douglas... Hmph! After all that you said, you too are following those with power!
Douglas: Perhaps it may seem that way from the outside. But there is no hesitation in my heart now.
Roartz: Silence! I have just about had enough of you. Die here!
“W-wait... Serve me! It is not too late... I shall...absolve you of your crimes... Guh...!”
