Black Company Wiki

Ro, mentioned briefly in Water Sleeps, was apparently a sworn brother of the Black Company. He accompanied Sleepy and her Nyueng Bao allies in their first journey across the glittering plain. Ro, Willow Swan, and Riverwalker were among those who slept in close enough proximity to Sleepy to experience her loud snoring one night.

Ro is not mentioned again in the Annals. The entire group would enter the fortress with no name and rescue the first group of 5 Captured from the cave of the ancients. They soon proceeded to the strange new world of Hsien.

Ro was almost certainly a veteran of the 5-year-long Kiaulune wars that occurred at the beginning of the 15-year-gap between She Is the Darkness and Water Sleeps.
