Background Information Edit

The character is inspired by Hunter S. Thompson: his name corresponds to the "Raoul Duke" pen name of Thompson and they share the same writing style and attitude. Duke Rollo is sometimes called, or signs, "Dr. Duke Rollo": it can be assumed that, in the same way that Hunter S. Thompson sometimes signed "Dr. H. S. Thompson", Duke Rollo claims an imaginary doctorate in journalism.
