Roger Elliot was the husband of Marla Elliot and the father of Thomas Elliot.

By Thomas' own account, he was an abusive alcoholic towards his wife and son. This behavior lead to great hatred and resentment of his father. He was also a miser, who had little to no interest in charity, as shown when Martha Wayne (at the time still Martha Kane) asked about his company supporting a medical clinic she and Leslie Tompkins had been working on.

When Tommy was a young boy, he orchestrated an automobile accident that took his father's life.[1] Thanks to the aid of Doctor Thomas Wayne Marla survived, but Roger couldn't be saved and died shortly after.[2]
