He is described as having a round, handsome face, with graying hair and glasses that went over his blue eyes. A year-round tan covers his skin and in the novel Point Blanc, he was fifty-four years old. He wore expensive yet annoymous suits.
Roscoe seemed a bit paranoid. Everyday he followed the same routine, starting with a double espresso coffee in his office, and had extensive security. He surrounded himself with what seemed to be safety. Every staff member of his building was hand-picked, and it could take up to three months to make an appointment with him. His driver was ex-FBI and carried a Berreta sub-compact semi-automatic pistol at all times, the Mercedes that drove him to work had bulletproof windows, there were several codes and sensors that required ID to go further, and he had a private elevator that only went from the first floor to the sixtieth.
Roscoe has appearance on the cover of Time magazine under the title "The Electronics King". Roscoe sits on the excecutive board of Roscoe Electronics and is the ninth or tenth most wealthy man in the world.
Point Blanc Edit
Roscoe is not a big character in Point Blanc. He makes a brief appearance in the Prologue of the novel and is killed off almost immediately.
Roscoe had noticed something different about his boy ever since he returned from Point Blanc Academy and contacted MI6 about the matter. Headmaster and main antagonist of the book Hugo Grief somehow found out about Roscoe's suspicions and dispatched a professional killer, The Gentleman, to silence the businessman before he could spill.
Roscoe set off for a morning meeting with Alan Blunt, but when he stepped into the elevator, it wasn't there. The shaft was empty, A projector stood in the corner projecting a hologram of the elevator standing in place of the real one. Roscoe's office was on the top floor of his building, and he fell to his death down the elevator shaft. His body wasn't discovered until the next day.
