Roles are a kind of general category for the part a character plays on the stage of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Your character will likely have an occupation that is more specific than Role, and this can be listed on your +finger under "Title".
If none of the Role categories seem to fit, "Other" is an acceptable choice. If you feel that there is a category of Roles that should be represented, feel free to bring it to staff and they will consider adding it to the list.
