Roddeck owned and raised the Red Dragon from the discontinued questUnstable Foundations, though he didn't seem to have nearly as much control over the dragon as players with 99 Summoning do. However, players only have baby dragons and Roddeck confessed that he lost control as it grew.
He sports a hairstyle that isn't available to players in-game.
Roddeck has brown eyebrows and white hair, which is an irregularity as normally a player's or NPC's hair color matches their eyebrows.
He was one of the first NPCs to be given a voice, although he was only voice acted during the now discontinued quest Unstable Foundations.
