History

As is to be expected in any character from the Liefeld stable, little to nothing is known regarding Roman’s history.

Roman first showed up as an ally to the now defunct team Brigade, bringing a great deal of experience and prestige to the team. Unfortunately, Roman’s inclusion to the team wasn’t enough to save any of its members, save Seahawk, from death. His failure to save the team wasn’t enough to keep Roman from joining up with the next incarnation of Brigade, but that version, although more focused and noble a team, was short lived.

Roman hasn’t been seen much of late save for his adventures with Supreme and the re-formed Allies to save a number of heroes that had been trapped by Opptilux since the 1960s. This “re-introduction” of Roman gave us to his full name : “Roy Roman”, and has granted an insight to a couple of Roy’s unknown powers such as his “sonar sense”, and his telepathy.

Roy appears much less tense amongst his contemporaries, and what the future and present holds for him is to be discovered…


Description

Roy Roman looks like a combination of the Submariner and Aquaman with black hair and a beard. He possesses the pointy ears of Namor, and wears a green and yellow costume that has the same “fish skin” appearance as Aquaman’s outfit.


Personality

Roman has a somewhat abrasive attitude when in the company of mainstream teams like the old government operated Youngblood and Bloodstrike, but now that his old comrades from the Allies are back we’ve gotten to see a more mellow, nostalgic Roman emerge.

A more Aquaman-like attitude, compared to his earlier “evil Namor/lame Image Comic” attitude if you will. Roman is quick to be concerned for his comrades and is usually amongst the firsts to enter a battle. Roman does possess a fiery temper and has been known to become a near berserker in combat.


Quotes

“Supreme ? I’m receiving mental impressions that these things are entities from the beginning of the universe ! Can that be possible ?”
