Rogo likes to paint himself as a crusty ne'er-do-well, full of complexities too deep for us common folk.
I have evidence to the contrary, however.
Rogo has a very sensitive side. He once stayed up all night with his sickly feline, no doubt nursing and fretting over her.
Rogo bears a striking resemblance to...Sydney Carton--seeing himself as beyond reclamation, but ready to sacrifice himself for any beloved thing.
