Roman, now deceased, was Nicki and Alby's father and the prophet of the Juniper Creek compound. He was once friendly with Bill's grandfather, Orville, the leader of the compound at the time. The wily Prophet had his hands in Bill's life in one way or another for years -- even after Bill managed to sever business ties between Juniper Creek and Henrickson Home Plus.
Roman left behind a bevy of wives, not to mention a tangle of financial affairs for the UEB. With Roman out of the way, the question remains: How will his influence still be felt in the Henricksons' lives, and on the compound.
