Roman Volkov was one of the children tested upon. He is also Suzume's romantic interest and ally.
Roman was originally from Russia where he spent a portion of his childhood with his mother and sister. One day, a man showed up and told Roman's mother that he could take Roman and his sister away to receive proper schooling and education. Their mother agreed and Roman and his sister were taken away. Instead of receiving schooling, them, and a few other children were experimented on using IAAN and the powers they all manifested. Because of this experimentation, Romans abilities aren't an ordinary PSI power. A few months prior to the events in The Darkest Legacy, Roman, his sister, and Priyanka Acharya, planned an escape. It was executed, however, only Roman and Priya made it out, leaving his sister behind.

In The Darkest Legacy, Roman is first seen with Priya watching Zu give a speech. When the speech is attacked and Zu is blamed, they help her escape. They join Zu on the run as fugitives and travel with her to Haven, a safe place Liam and Ruby had set up for PSIs.
