When Roman arrived in Salem, he was part of the International Security Alliance (ISA), and was on assignment to protect Marlena Evans from a serial killer lurking around town. Eventually that close working relationship led to a romantic one and the duo married. Their happiness was cut short when the evil Stefano Dimera shot him, and he fell off a cliff to his “death.”
A year later a man named John Black came to Salem and lived as Roman Brady for five years—all the while the real Roman was imprisoned on an island by Stefano! In 2004 Roman was “killed” again during the Salem Stalker Murders. However, like the rest of the victims, he wasn’t dead; just captured and taken to live on an island. (Note to Roman ... you have bad luck when it comes to islands!)
In addition to the on and off again romance with Marlena , Roman has also found love in Kate Roberts, Billie Reed and his first wife, Anna Dimera. He’s the definitive Brady – upstanding, solid as a rock, honorable and a lot of fun when he lets loose.
