Roger Smith is the main protagonist of the series, and works as a negotiator at Paradigm City. His primary work is to negotiate anything for his clients. However, he appears to avoid deals involving the Paradigm Corporation, and only accepts them when the city is under direct threat. He is a gentleman and a professional, thus he expects others to behave professionally as well. The following are several rules that he and those involved with him must observe, respectively ordered as they were revealed in the series:
I have a special house rule that only lovely young women can unconditionally enter this mansion.
If you stay [in my house], then you wear black.
It’s not my style to carry a gun.
I value women and the elderly. It’s one of my policies.
If someone lacks courtesy and sincerity, I ask them to leave.
The most important rule of all is under no circumstances must anyone touch my desk!
The basic rule of negotiating is to consider and respect the other person’s feelings.
