History Edit

Before Series Edit

Roko, as mentioned, was a project at a research lab with many other genetically modified animals that had special powers like him. The project in the cage nearby his, number 99, was a strange alligator that grew the more he ate, whose weakness was his tail.

Number 99 bit the professor of the lab, his excuse for Roko being that he was hungry because they feed them bad there. One night, he asks Roko to open his cage with his power, saying he was really hungry, wanted to eat a human boy he met before. Roko refused and then number 012, telling that she's a former project who fled from this lab because they would kill her anytime soon.

That sentence caused Roko to remember what the doctors were talking about. About probably having to kill number 99 if he became more dangerous.

Number 012 rescued 99, who then rescued Roko by knocking down the cage's door with his tail. On the way to the wall that 99 melted with his powers, they met the doctors and injured them. As they did that and escaped, Roko finally got out of his cage and ran after them, ending at a cliff.

Roko refused to help 99 destroy all humans so he was kicked off the cliff by 99 right into a lake that led him to the place where Queen, Jack and King were fishing.

They pulled out Roko from the water and gave him something to eat, of course with a little fight between Jack and Roko. Jack eventually came up with the name "Roko", because he loved corn so much.

Jack and Roko saved King and Queen from being eaten by 99. When Silver Heart came home and found Roko saying "I wanna be a phantom thief too, please teach me", he was shocked by Roko being able to talk.

Joker presents to Queen her diamond necklace that she had dropped, but Queen slashes her sword at Joker as she does not show mercy to those in her way, Roko overlooks.
