About Roman Torchwick
The popular Rooster Teeth anime show, RWBY, has had villains come and go, but Roman Torchwick is definitely one to remember. He came swooping in with his bright orange hair and gentlemanly ways. But, as bad as he is, it’s hard to dislike him. Roman can be accommodating and smooth with his words, but if he gets angry, he quickly turns into a ruthless person who will kill anyone that may get in his way.
Roman Torchwick schemes and makes plans to kill Ruby Rose. Ruby isn’t as easily killed, but Roman doesn’t give up so easily. He uses his cane-cannon as his weapon of choice, by using the hook at one end to bring people closer to him or using the other end to knock his enemies to their feet. One of his downfalls is underestimating those who are fighting against him as he doesn’t do too well with being surprised. Like most villains, Roman focuses on his evil skills to keep him alive as long as possible.
