March 22 - 23, 1979
Drowned in a toilet by the Kansas City Mafia
|Roost Bolton Gallery|
Roost Bolton became an associate of the Gerhardt Crime Syndicate at some point. He eventually became an important lieutenant, and personally ran their business in half of South Dakota.
Upon hearing that Gerhardt patriarch Otto Gerhardt had suffered a stroke, Bolton sent the family a get well card. When he learned that the Kansas City Mafia was trying to buy out the organization, he talked with fellow lieutenants Joey Seymour and Mickey Grout.
Bolton travels to the Gerhardt ranch in Fargo, North Dakota to meet with the Floyd, Dodd, Bear, and the now paralyzed Otto Gerhardt, as well as Seymour and Grout, to discuss the Kansas City situation. He suggests taking Kansas City's lucrative offer and insists that the Gerhardts should not start a war. However, he promises that if Kansas City attacks, they will "cut the goddamn nose off their face."
During the war with Kansas City, Bolton is tracked down by two of their enforcers in a bathroom. One of them overpowers him and forces him headfirst into a toilet. Bolton struggles but is held under the water until he drowns.
- His name is a reference to the character Roose Bolton from Game of Thrones.
