Ernest Roe was born in 2238. He is 39 and was raised on a trade caravan. By the time he was 12, he could turn 5 caps into 50 with just a few clever trades. When he was 20, he set out to make his mark, using his sizable investments to found the the trading post of Canterbury Commons with his sister Daisy. Nowadays, the Commons have become a regular stop for caravans in the Capital Wasteland. "Uncle Roe" makes sure that everyone gets enough from the caravans to get a good meal every night. He's lost his sister, but he cares for his nephew as well as he can. With a bit of luck and a whole lot of caps, he hopes to eventually turn Canterbury Commons into a settlement to rival Rivet City.
