After being [[promotion|promoted]] to lackey, he made a suit of armor for Parson and otherwise served him loyally. Parson, in contrast to the other characters, treated Bogroll with respect, something which may have influenced and inspired Bogroll's infatuation and fierce loyalty towards Parson. Parson seems shocked and upset that Bogroll's wish is to save his life, but later that wish is fulfilled.  He is currently deceased, killed in service to Parson. The Royal Crown Coalition burned his body (perhaps to forestall his Regeneration ability) to the point that Wanda declares that the body cannot be decrypted, but that is only her opinion; not a direct fact.

In his first appearance, he was about to become the (literal) target of a prank by one of the other henchmen that would probably have killed most units, but he probably could have survived thanks to his regeneration trait. Wanda's desire to get "as far away from (him) as possible" when she encounters him holding a target-patterned parasol suggests that this is a recurring pattern.

Traits

Bogroll has only one eye in the manner of a cyclops, a trait not shared by all twolls.Erf-b1-p10Same-site.PNG

Bogroll is illiterate.Erf-b1-p033Same-site.PNG

Speculation

Bogroll survived a fall that killed a warlord of a much higher level than he was (such that Bogroll leveled twice). This might mean he had a relatively enormous number of hits, or that his Regeneration ability allowed him to survive being reduced to 0 hits, or simply that the warlord was injured from earlier events in the siege. Bogroll may also have landed on Ansom.
