Roach was a human man.
An 18th century pirate, Roach served under Captain Flint, and, later, under his former quartermaster Captain Silver. He followed George Merry in his double-mutiny, not only against the honest Captain Smollett they had tricked into taking them to Treasure Island, but against Silver himself. However, he died in one of the ensuing skirmishes and battles.
Behind the scenesEdit
Roach appeared in the 1950 film Treasure Island.
He is mostly remembered for being an early role of British actor Patrick Troughton, who would rise to fame sixteen years later when he took the lead role of the long-running science-fiction series Doctor Who (which, interestingly enough, later had a brief crossover with the Disney comics universe under the pen of Don Rosa).
