Story

Roc is first encountered when the party run into Vandham for the first time. There he serves as Vandham's Blade during their fight. After that it is revealed that Vandham and Roc only wanted to test Rex and they invite the party to follow them to Garfont Village. There, the two mercenaries take the party on one of their mission. When they come back to the village, they are attacked by Akhos and Obrona who were sent after Pyra by Jin. Vandham and Roc manage to fight them back and the two are forced to retreat.

Roc then follow Vandham and the rest of the party to Fonsa Myma where Malos and Akhos take Iona as a hostage forcing Pyra to come alone to the Olethro Playhouse. The party manage to find where Pyra went and start to engage Malos and Akhos in a fight. They are no match for them and Vandham is killed by Akhos. Roc then return to his Core Crystal. He is later reawakened with his new Driver being Rex.
