Unlike most of us, Roy welcomes death with open arms. This is because whenever he dies, he is resurrected into another vacant body that has already lost its life. He doesn't remember why or how this started happening, but over countless years of waking up in other corpses, he has accepted the fact that he may never get to finally rest.
In a desperate search to find meaning in his life, he has devoted himself to helping others with his unique ability. It is his hope, however, that somewhere along the way he will finally find the answer to his question of why he is not deceased.
