- "That driver, he must have been in shock or something because he threw himself at us like a crazy guy. I had to… had to kill him. But this was self-defense. I was protecting myself, man. C'mon, you gotta believe me. But you know what, he took a bite out of me, man."
- — Roger, talking about his bite.
When the Hero gains access to the bungalow, his wife Jessica Nelson explains that Roger is bleeding and begs for help. Talking to Roger reveals that they were fleeing the resort when they came across a broken down car and stopped to help. Unbeknownst to the Nelsons, the driver had become a zombie who charged at Roger and bit him. Roger was forced to kill the man, but now believes he has rabies. This begins the side quest "Bloody Valentine", in which the Hero must escort Jessica to the Lighthouse.
Once at the Lighthouse, Jessica asks the Hero to check on her husband. If the Hero returns to the bungalow, they will be confronted by Roger, who is now a Walker.
- Oddly, Roger claims that James Stein is his brother, despite the fact that they have different surnames and accents. It is likely that Roger was using the term "brother" as a way of saying that James is a good friend rather than claiming that they are actually siblings, as he addresses the Heroes as such frequently during their discussion, or they could have been step brothers or brothers in law.
- Similar to Nenja Samejon, the undead Roger will respawn every time the player reloads the map (either by reloading a saved game from the main menu, or reentering the area from another location).
- Strangely, his zombie form has no facial hair.
- If you look at Roger in his "Dying" state, you will notice he has bandages on his right wrist. In his "Roger's Body" deceased state, it has mysteriously moved to his left wrist.
- Roger will have a lot of his chest and torso region missing when confronted in his undead state, even during the quick amount of time it took to transport Jessica Nelson to the Lighthouse, this could show how quick it takes to turn and decay
