Default General Rancid

So the first time you meet Tiny Tina, she says that she owed Roland everysince "That buttcrap with General Rancid." Now if it was just generic backdrop, 'heyas roland saved my life so now I owe him." I wouldn't think about it twice, but the fact is it's not just some generic foe. It has a name. I had never heard of General Rancid before. so now I find myself wondering if we'll get a DLC that might give us more about this character Tina hints at.

I think she's referring to General Knoxx.


I assume so anyway.

if she meant General Knoxx I think she would say General Knoxx. the only thing she makes up names for are her imaginary friends. Besides that, there was nothing to suggest Tina's involvement with that DLC, and in fact I think Tina and Roland didn't even meet til some time after the end of the Claptrap Revolution.

So in the end it seems to me that she is mentioning an as of yet unintroduced character. They're a total enigma. we don't know if they're alive or dead, we don't even know their gender. General Rancid could easily be a woman.

General Rancid was probably some generic Bandit leader with delusions of grandeur.

Or a Crimson Lance General who tried to maintain control of the Crimson Lance after they got left behind by Atlas which Roland took out to create the Raiders.

Let's not forget that Tina's mother was being slag experimented on by Hyperion. Maybe Roland saved her from that some how.

When you collect slag evidence during the first wildlife exploitation reserve quests, one of the echo logs tells you about Tina's mother, I'm fairly sure it's the same tina, because there's a reference to explosives in the echo log and the younger girl using them.

How long after BL1 is BL2 set? Anyone know? Because Roland would have had to meet Tina during that time.

Actually, Tina's backstory is really sketch. Her 'rents were killed by Jack and his slag experimentation (post-BL1), and then somehow in the time between then and BL2 Tina taught herself to be a demolitions expert (she couldn't have been an expert previously as her mother referred to the grenade that got her free as a "rock" or some such). But whatever.
