Goober, Roland Goubert, is the first to take and complete an assignment from the Vigils.  He wants to be accepted by the group, and is performs his duties eagerly.  However, hs is an outsider and could be a potential ally for Jerry.  His lack of self-confidence, however, prevents him from speaking.  He is intelligent enough to recognize the corruption of the gang, and to understand the internal turmoil of Brother Leon, but he is too weak to stand up for what is right.
