"He was going to be a third generation smelter in Chicago, but he had uncles who had been inhaling copper and nickel," showrunner Matt Olmstead recently told of Officer Roman." He was scheduled to go down that road until they closed the plant down. He also has perspective in his life of, 'I know what hard work is.'
