Roggen began life as a benign sewer snake in the catacombs under Old Korvosa, until he and the lizard that was to become the amusingly named "Rusty" were captured as subjects for the experiments of Celerus, the master alchemist. The bizarre machinations of this alchemical genius transformed the two humble creatures from ordinary reptiles into violent, monstrous abominations of humanoid outline and enhanced, malevolent intellect. The young abominations were quickly pawned off on the slave master Gaedren to serve as curioes, bodygaurds and heavy labourers. Dissatisfied with this servile life, Roggen and Rusty hatch a plan and escape from the slaver, and part ways for a time. Roggen then pursued the loose strings of memory; a holy symbol of Lamashtu, godess of monsters, discovered in a dark alley on a job for Gaedren. From that day forth, it would seem that the Goddess herself gave Roggen knowledge of cruel rituals and fighting styles by way of divine inspiration, as well as the improbable ability of literacy, considering his surpising (for a snake monster) but unimpressive intelligence. Gaedren broke the talisman, but Roggen’s faith was thenceforth unbreakable, thanks in no small part to the divine gifts of the Goddess of Madness and Monsters.
Presently, Roggen makes his home in the Sewers of Old Korvosa, surviving on a diet of fish, idiots and small animals. Here he skulks in the shadows, performing blasphemous rites to his god and awaiting any sign of Celerus.
