Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up… loving football. Roy has always possessed a great passion for the game of football and spent much of his early life learning the game and perfecting his craft. That early developed grit and passion has led him to great places in life.

Living… in London. Roy has not traveled too far from home aside from where football has taken him. However, he is content where he is in life, so why bother changing it?

Profession… professional footballer in the Premier League for AFC Richmond. A legend of the game, Roy Kent is a household name for fans of football. Now a veteran, he continues to play his heart out every minute of every match.

Interests… football, football, and football. Roy lives and breathes the sport and always wants to be around the game. A lifelong passion, he is willing to get involved in any possible way he can and at any stage of his life. As he says, "It's more than a game to me. It's all I've ever known. It's who I am. It's all I am."

Relationship Status… single. Roy is not the most outwardly caring personable individual, and that on top of remaining so dedicated to his career for so long has kept him from pursuing a long-term relationship. However, that is not to say that the right person will never get through to him.

Challenge… accepting being out of his prime. In his day, Roy Kent was arguably the face of the Premier League. Now, after an extensively successful career, age is catching up to him and Roy must grapple with the fact that he is no longer the best player on the field. Instead, he needs to figure out how to support his team by truly being a leader to remain involved in the game he loves.

Personality… stoic, hotheaded, and strong-willed. Roy almost always has an angry look on his face, and while his natural fire and passion have served him well over the course of his illustrious career, it has certainly strained his day-to-day relationships. However, when push comes to shove he is as caring and supportive of a friend as anyone could ask for.
