Background: Roy feels he never got a “real” shot at boxing. He didn’t kiss the asses of the right promoters, and very few of the big-name fighters wanted to fight the tough, cagey slugger. He was offered jobs as a sparring partner, but Roy finds being a human punching bag boring. He overheard some guys in a bar talking about some organized streetfight, and after knocking them out, showed up at the appointment they paid for.
Quote: “C’mon, boy. I know you can hit harder than that. Hell, I barely felt it.”
Comments: Roy is a cagey veteran who knows the value of patience. Early in a fight he will use Defensive Martial Arts and Defensive Attack, coupled with Fast Punches and Lightning Jabs to protect himself while he wears down his opponent. Once his opponent is in trouble, he switches entirely, abandoning his Defensive Martial Arts for Multi-Attack (with the Flurry perk), mixing in All-Out Attacks and Power Punches as necessary until he finishes his opponent off.
