American-born German or German-born American? Edit
There seems to be a bit of a debate on what exactly Rolento actually is. Is he an American-born German? Is he a German-born American? Well, we do know he's American at least! That's a fact.
Rolento is actually a German-born American! He was exiled to the USA in 1980. By the time Street Fighter 1/Final Fight 1 happen canon-wise (in 1987), he would have already been in the USA for 7 years! That's MORE than enough time for him to get his American citizenship. By the time Street Fighter II rolls around canon-wise (in 1993), he would have been living there for more than a decade!
This is in the Street Fighter Plot Canon Guide! Vasili did translate it. Check for yourself, it's in there!
As for not having a German accent? For one thing, Street Fighter x Tekken is non-canon. For another thing, Rolento has been living in the USA for quite a long time, so it's possible his German accent just changed/went away completely. Heck, I was kinda disappointed Rolento didn't have a German accent but what I just said could be a plausible explanation for why he doesn't have it.
I was wrong. The Street Fighter Plot Canon Guide does mention his Native Place being America (USA). I didn't look at that part. I was so focusing too much on the "exiled to America" part, that I didn't look at that section in the beginning for Rolento. That's my mistake. Sorry about that. I basically just edited out the whole of what I had typed out previously, since it would do no good now.
- It's fine, but a strikethrough will do. We should try not to remove anything from the talk pages unless they have absolutely nothing to do with the article, would go better in a forum post, etc. Lord Grammaticus (talk) 02:57, January 24, 2013 (UTC)
He appeared in an anime Edit
Ok so I was brosing and found this ok so it seems he made an appearce on "Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel" and he actaully played a part other that just that scene there (the episode you can find here ) so should this be metioned at all? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Erudite bound (talk • contribs)
- A couple of screenshots would be nice complement to the info. -- Holothurion 23:46, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
