Character Development: Mikaela “The Roach” Rochester

Who is The Roach?

We won’t see Mikaela make an appearance in NeuroBar, but she is a character who is mentioned on several occasions. However, she is someone important from the past of numerous protagonists, and a personality who shaped the streets of Amerisia 25 years ago.

Dangerous, feared and respected, The Roach offered her services in Rochester Alley, a dark alley rife with businesses of questionable morality. Mikaela had a reputation built on beatings, threats, sweat and blood, willing to take on all kinds of jobs.

From ransom missions to kidnappings, bodyguard services and assassinations, and even prostitution for those who had the money and, above all, the courage to dare to request such a service.

It was his lack of scruples that earned him the nickname The Roach, although the stories surrounding his name are as varied as they are fabulous.

Two things are certain in Mikaela’s story: first, despite everything, she was a protective mother, present and constantly attentive to her daughter; second, something happened between her, Miller and Ricci that changed the course of all three of their lives.
