Rodger's background was modest and humble. He took his modest beginnings, and wanted to take any opportunity he could to improve his surroundings. He took active roles in things such as student counsel and volunteer work up until graduating high school. After marrying his high-school sweetheart, Nancy, he took a job in the marines and rose to be one of their best snipers for covert operations.
Though he had often had to spend much time away from his wife, he and Nancy kept the spark going into their relationship, until she conceived their first child well into their marriage. Nancy unfortunately died during childbirth, and due to Rodger being wrapped up in another long staying mission, got cycled to extended family, and eventually of the radar. After returning back to find his family in shambles, Rodger retires from the marines and followed the only lead he could follow towards his daughter. He went of to Samhain.
While there, he subsisted only on money he could get doing odd jobs and street performances, with hopes his daughter may still have access to the family account. His newly found circumstances and his propensity towards charity gave his way to his involvement to the Belltane Foundation and later his acceptance to the Belltane Family.
