When the Sole Survivor speaks with Wally or Janey, Roger's children, they say that their father is a lot nicer than he used to be. In fact, Roger is a synth that was built by the Institute. The exact point at which the original Roger Warwick has been replaced is unknown.
He is a key component of the bioscience division's testing of genetically modified seeds on the surface. Terminals located inside the bioscience wing of the Institute indicate that Roger, along with the crops, will be retrieved by the Institute. All evidence of the initiative will be purged, hence implying his family with the rest of the settlers at Warwick homestead will be terminated once the experiments have concluded.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
Despite being a synth, Roger does not drop a synth component when killed.
Roger Warwick appears only in Fallout 4.
- PC Playstation 4 Xbox One If Roger Warwick is killed after obtaining Warwick homestead as a settlement through Building a Better Crop without acquiring Warwick Homestead: Greenskins, it will randomly appear and direct the player to talk to Preston Garvey. After doing so, the quest will remain in the player character's Pip-Boy indefinitely. [verified]
- PC Playstation 4 Xbox One If Building a Better Crop is completed before completing Warwick Homestead: Greenskins, one will not be able to interact with him aside from trading, resulting in the only way to finish the quest being killing him and returning to Preston Garvey. [verified]
- PC Playstation 4 Xbox One Roger can become stuck in a water tank at the settlement; this will cause him to be unable to be talked to. To fix this, if one has unlocked Warwick homestead as a settlement, they must first build a staircase leading out of the tank, ring a bell, wait an hour, and he should be free. If the settlement has not been unlocked, on PC, one can use the console command targetID.moveto player and teleport Roger Warwick (ID: 00048ba9) to their position. [verified]
- If one does not have Warwick homestead as a settlement, they can use power armor to jump inside the tank with him and walk "shove" him towards the broken catwalk. He will pop up out of the water long enough to give the player character the talk option and trigger the dialogue, therefore unlocking Warwick homestead as a settlement.
