Grew Up… with dreams of becoming a baseball player. Roy always knew that he was destined to play ball and was encouraged by his father to follow his passions. There have been a few setbacks, but Roy remains undaunted in his dream that, “someday, when people look at me they’ll say ‘there goes Roy Hobbs, the best there ever was.’”
Living… his dream. After suffering a debilitating injury at nineteen, Roy has finally reached the major leagues. Now, at the ripe old age of thirty-five, Roy is finally able to use his talents for the New York Knights.
Profession… baseball player. Roy is a natural ballplayer who throws with grace, swings with power, and catches line-drives with ease. More than talent, however, Roy has passion. As he tells the Knights' coach, "Red, it took me sixteen years to get here. You play me, and I’ll give ya the best I got.”
Interests… baseball. Although he's a natural at the game, Roy has more than just talent on his side: Roy also has his supernaturally-powered bat, “Wonderboy,” which he made from a lightning-struck tree near his boyhood home.
Relationship Status… single, but not for lack of options. Now that he’s a famous ballplayer, Roy has all kinds of interesting, attractive women after him. Lately, the seductive Memo Paris has been catching his eye, though Roy's having a bit of difficulty forgetting his old sweetheart, Iris.
Challenge… carrying his team to the World Series. Roy only has one shot at helping the Knights win baseball’s highest prize, and he isn't having an easy time of it. Not only does he have to compete against the most skilled teams in the league, he has to face his own team’s nefarious owner, The Judge, who seems intent on throwing the Knights’ season.
Personality… honorable, tough, and resilient. Roy is a kind, humble man who always strives to do the right thing. Although his enemies may see think his integrity makes him easy to manipulate, time and time again, Roy's integrity proves to be one of his greatest strengths.
