Roberts is a petty man dissatisfied with his place in the world. He actually has a knack for inventing, but his poor luck has prevented him from capitalizing on his gift. Rather than learn from his mistakes, however, he’d rather blame everyone around him for his woes.

It has been recently revealed that Roberts was colluding with either the Confederates or with the Black River rail line to sabotage the fort and leave it vulnerable to attack. He is currently being held on charges of treason and is being shipped to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
