Born the younger of two children to the wealthy Collins family of Collinsport, Maine, Roger Collins grew up at the family estate of Collinwood in the shadow of his older sister, Elizabeth Collins Sotddard. When their father, Jamison, died, Roger began blowing his half of his inheritance, leaving Elizabeth spend her half trying and buy up all the family holdings Roger sold.Roger fell for a woman named Laura, who was dating a friend of his named Burke Devlin. One night Burke, Roger and Laura were out on the town for a night of drinking and Roger decided he was more able to drive than Burke. Burke was passed out in the car when Roger wrecked the car, killing a pedestrian. Roger and Laura framed Burke for the manslaughter and left town as newlyweds right after the trial. Less than 9 months later, Laura gave birth to a son, David, whom Roger suspected might be Burke's child.When Roger's money ran out, he crawled to Elizabeth for more, but it came with a price. Roger, Laura and David were banished from Collinwood. Laura's drinking got worse and she had to be institutionalized. David's behavior was so bad that Roger was forced to return to Collinwood, where Elizabeth took him back in and gave him a menial job at the Cannery she owned.David's hatred of Roger grew so great that one night David sabotaged Roger's car, injuring him and forcing him to realize how serious the situation was. Unfortunately, Elizabeth had already hired a governess to tutor David, so sending him to military school was not an option. Show less «
