Physical Description Edit
At the beginning of the story, Roger Goodman wears a gentleman's outfit, complete with a powdered wig, white blouse with dark tan coat, black pants, and black shoes with white stockings. Once he becomes a pirate, he disposes of his outfit, changing it our for a black tricorn hat, gold gentleman's shirt, navy blue coat, and a brown scabbard. He retains his black pants and white stockings with black shoes. When he gets old, his gold shirt becomes gray and his tricorn hat becomes wrinkled.
Roger Goodman is as civilized as any rich American can be, or at least that's how he sees himself. He's orderly, uptight, and only partakes in the finest accommodations that money can buy. His view on life is that money can buy everything, and sometimes sees the pirate life as barbaric and not as the way to Sarah's heart that he thought that it was.
Before Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Edit
Roger Goodman was created specifically for Jolly Roger and the Pirate Queen by Craig Sodaro, the script's writer. Once Mustache Maniacs Film Co. released the Cornerstone Thespian Society version of the performance, this character was entered into the company's universe, along with the rest of the play.
