Background

Roshambo was a Brotherhood of Steel paladin who traveled East in one of the airships that pursued the super mutant army, in the same zeppelin as paladin Latham. He told the Brotherhood Elders that storms would be the end of the air convoy, but they didn't listen to him. The airship crashed near the place known as Osceolla.

In 2197, Roshambo is a crazy old man who hides and does funny things with his fingers and pisses in other people's Nuka-Cola. He is the sort of man mothers warn their sons about.

Relationships

He apparently still ocassionally meets with Latham, and is somewhat loyal to him, despite being mad.

Interactions with the player character

When Latham is defeated, Roshambo becomes hostile to the warrior and can be killed or left to live on with his madness.

Appearances

Roshambo only appears in Fallout Tactics.

Behind the scenes

Roshambo was named after an ex-administrator of No Mutants Allowed, also known as The Roshambo Warrior and Rosh, who was vocal in his criticism about Fallout Tactics during the game's production.

Biography

In 14 ABY, Penin was heading to the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4. On the way to the Praxeum, he met Jaden Korr, and the two eventually developed a friendship. While heading to the Praxeum on Yavin 4, the shuttle was attacked by the Disciples of Ragnos, though the attack was merely a distraction so they could access Luke Skywalker's personal records.

After recovering from the shuttle crash, Penin and Korr teamed up in order to reach the Massassi Temple. Korr went on ahead after witnessing stormtroopers patrolling the perimeter of the Temple and quickly dispatched them, along with a Sith cultist. Korr was then knocked unconscious with the Scepter of Ragnos by Tavion Axmis. Penin then went for help and brought Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn back with him, who afterward took Penin and Korr back to the Praxeum. After arriving, Penin and Korr were assigned Katarn as their Master. During a training exercise, Penin set a lightsaber training droid on Korr in order to provide a distraction so he would be able to complete the course before Korr. When Korr reached the end of the course, Katarn chastised Penin, saying the droid would have killed Korr had it been set to Luke's training regiment. Penin apologized to Korr, an apology which Korr hesitantly accepted.

Penin often felt that Katarn was holding him back, and as a result grew arrogant and impatient. Eventually, Penin was assigned to investigate Byss, where he was captured by the Disciples of Ragnos. At first, he was afraid he would be killed, but instead of killing him, they took advantage of his fear to convert him to the dark side. Penin's naiveté and lust for power made it easy for the Cult to turn him, and he became an apprentice to Axmis, leader of the Disciples of Ragnos.

On Vjun, Penin, Axmis, and the Kothos Twins led the Cult's operations in Bast Castle in order to siphon the Force energies that were stored there. Katarn and Korr arrived on Vjun, intent on stopping the cultists, but were separated. Korr later located and confronted Penin in Vader's throne room, where Penin, with the aid of the Twins, dueled Korr. Penin and Korr were evenly matched until Korr managed to kill the Twins. He soon after disarmed Penin just as Katarn arrived. Before they were able to apprehend Penin, Axmis intervened. She disabled Katarn and Korr with Force lightning, and afterward revealed that she had taken Penin as her new apprentice. Axmis ripped Korr's lightsaber from him with the Force, threw it at the ceiling and brought the weakened structure down on the Jedi with the Scepter of Ragnos. She then used the ensuing chaos to escape with Penin in tow. Katarn used the Force to prevent the ceiling from crashing down on top of them while Korr used Katarn's lightsaber to create an exit.

Some time later, Penin repented and tried to turn from the dark side while on Taspir III with Alora, Tavion's other apprentice. He sent a distress signal to the Jedi Praxeum. Katarn and Korr arrived on Taspir III and began searching for Penin. Korr eventually located Penin, who begged for forgiveness for attacking Korr on Vjun. Korr's anger at Penin revealed itself once again, and he came close to striking down his friend. Katarn communicated with Korr through the Force and pleaded with Korr to deactivate his lightsaber. Korr relented, though Alora, who had been watching from a distance, attacked Korr. During the battle, Alora managed to sever Penin's arm due to his disloyalty, after which Korr struck her down. Katarn arrived soon after and brought Penin back to the Praxeum. While there, Penin is depicted to be testing his new prosthetic left arm which looks identical to his original. When he moves it mechanical sounds are heard which confirms that it was a prosthetic.

Behind the scenes

Rosh Penin was portrayed by Jason Marsden. In the beginning of the game, Rosh wields a yellow-bladed training lightsaber; after he turned to the Dark side, he was given a red-bladed lightsaber by Tavion.

Rosh's character has been the subject of intense criticism and hatred, most of the Jedi Knight community feels he is an annoying, unnecessary character. In many Jedi Academy fan videos he is constantly antagonized and often killed by the other characters.

Alternate ending

The following is from the non-canonical ending of the game.

After Jaden found Rosh on Taspir III, Jaden gave into his hatred and anger, and decided to kill Rosh. Rosh begged Jaden to let go of his anger before he attacks him. Jaden ignored his request and plunged a lightsaber through his torso, mortally wounding him. Jaden then killed Alora and fled to Korriban. Kyle arrived just as Rosh was dying and told him that in turning back to the light, he became a full Jedi.
