Personal History:

Roy grew up a normal kid with his handyman father in a small town in Nebraska, except for the blue fairy. Roy can't even remember it now, a blue glowing light would visit him near his backyard tree everyday. One day though, men visited claiming to be from the government. They forcibly took the fairy away and wiped Roy's memory. All he could remember was the glow of the light and the letters 'SCP'

Years later, Roy earned his detective's badge, happy his father got to see him graduate before he passed. He quickly became revered in the office for his talents in solving the impossible cases. One such event came with a chance encounter with the Foundation when a missing pet case ran parallel with one of their SCP retrieval missions. The Foundation was impressed, and a few weeks later Roy was packing for his new job.

Miscellaneous:

His father owned a repair shop for antique toys. Roy would help out whenever he could.

Roy has short-term memory loss which is why he keeps a notebook on him at all times.

While working as a detective, Roy would usually take cases of unusual significance secretly in the hopes that he might discover something about SCPs

His favorite song growing up is "Tuck Me to Sleep in My Old 'Tucky Home" by Ray Cropper: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdMhUo7c920
