Roger Fairway was one of the Star Patrol's earliest and most promising recruits. In 2068 he was assigned to Phobos to protect the construction crew of the Star Patrol's base there, and he quickly became enamoured of the Martian lifestyle and culture, particularly that of the Equatorial Martians. In 2070, Roger Fairway (better known as "Fleet", for his agility and spacefaring experience) deserted his post and allied himself with the Equatorial Martian city of Monsol. Fairway quickly rose through the ranks of the city's military. He led several daring missions and operations that greatly expanded Monsol's regional influence, and became a trusted advisor to Monsol's queen, Nori Vae. In 2098, shortly before the Neptunian attack on Triton, it was reported that Fairway and Nori Vae had become romantically involved. In 2099, he was selected to serve as an officer in the Mars Division of the United System Expeditionary Force.

He has extensive historical knowledge, particularly military history, and it is thought that he is probably a veteran.
