Rocco Hildebrandt was a halfling, the husband of Incarvilia and the father of Aloë and Yasmin as well as one unnamed son. He was also the uncle of Impatientia "Impi" Vanderbeck and the brother-in-law of Milo "Rusty" Vanderbeck. Rocco and his family, as well as several other halflings from the hamlet in which they lived, successfully fought off a gang of would-be robbers: Pike, Okultich, Klaproth, Ograbek and Milton.
