Rockland's name comes from its harsh terrain, barren save for rocks. Ordinarily, Rockland was considered a simple, but peaceful, village. During the Gate Rune War, the area was said to be more dangerous than in years past and dissatisfaction with the village's military commander, Grady, was high.
An Imperial Guard party, led by Kanaan, investigated a lack of taxes coming from Rockland in the early stages of the Toran Liberation War, with Grady blaming the issue on the Mt. Seifu bandits. A young girl, Haruna, acted as a guide.
Grady abandoned the village towards the end of the war, with the people of Rockland happy with their improved circumstances and thoughtful about the future.
Rockland's theme in Suikoden is the eponymous song "Rock Rockland", which is song 15 on disc 1 of the Genso Suikoden Original Game Soundtrack. It shares this theme with both the towns of Sarady and Lenankamp. All three are located in the region of Arus.
The Genso Suikoden Original Game Soundtrack notes that Rock Rockland is the theme for Rockland and Lenankamp, but not for Sarady, perhaps underscoring that village's isolation and unimportance.
