What really happened to Roland Jarvis? The Acolyte was the last to see him, alone, in the Cabin. And when she left that place she boarded it up and forbade any others from entering. What was she so desperate to hide?
Even a most trusted Acolyte cannot perceive the true intentions of their teacher. When she visited him at the cabin, the Acolyte was expecting Roland Jarvis to hand her the leadership of the Enlightened. She couldn't have been more wrong. Roland intended to convert her to the teachings of N'zeer.
When MAGNUS attempted to eradicate the N'zeer they retreated to a land the ancients knew of as N'zeerland. During the Shonin Anomaly the Resistance finally succeeded in their most sacred mission: the complete shielding of an entire country from Shaper mind control, finally allowing the N'zeer to resurface. Via an emissary the N'zeer showed Roland how he could achieve eternal life as an XM Entity if he agreed to faction change.
When the Acolyte entered the Cabin, she found Jarvis in a state of transition from human to XM and experienced the full of the power of the N'zeer which destroyed her faith in the Shapers. From that moment she chose to devote her life to N'zeer and the Resistance. At the point of final transition, a portal appeared enveloping her.
The Shapers, sensing the change in XM, had sent an agent to investigate. The agent arrived in time to observe the Acolyte's disappearance and seized the chance to assume the Acolyte's identity and assumed leadership of the Enlightened. She made the Cabin out of bounds so that no one would discover her secret.
Both she and the new Roland Jarvis are impostors. Jarvis never returned from the dead because he didn't die! He transformed into XM. He is everywhere.
It was only when Enlightened agents +Noelho and +Arseynimz in New Zealand noticed the similarity of one of the members of the Resistance to the Acolyte that the truth was revealed.
