Roger is an average-sized man with muscular shoulders, round eyes, and a long, thin nose. He has shaggy blonde hair and brown eyebrows. He wears a tan tank top, brown pants, and a dark brown sash around his waist. He also wears a brown cap, a green scarf, and brown shoes.
Luffy approached Roger and asked him to transport him to Spa Island, looking to fulfill Tama's request for the Phantom Remedy. When they arrived at Spa Island, Luffy asked Roger how to carry the hot spring water, and Roger suggested that he search for a bottle. After Luffy retrieved the water, he returned to Roger, and the two sailed back to Sapphire Town.
Roger transported Luffy back and forth to Spa Island another three times, and each time Roger seemed more and more surprised that he was still fetching water.
