Biography[edit | edit source]
Roman Zimojic is a vampire elder and the leader of the Authority. After a controversial incident involving the vampires of Bon Temps, Louisiana against a coven of witches led by Marnie Stonebrook, Roman sent Nan Flanagan to deliver the True Death to the vampire King of Louisiana Bill Compton as well as the Sheriff of Section 5, Eric Northman. Nan failed in this endeavor and paid for it with her own life. (TB: And When I Die)
Roman sent a backup team of his elite soldiers (whom Northman often refers to as "gay stormtroopers") to capture Bill and Eric. They encased them in silver nets and were bringing them back to the Authority to face justice, but fortunately for the two rogue vampires, they managed to escape with the help of Eric's "sister" Nora Gainsborough.
