A mercenary hireable from A.I.M.  First appears in Jagged Alliance 2.

Official description

"Don’t let his gray eyes and pretty boy looks fool you. Rothman won’t back down from the down and dirty. As a diamond mercenary and security consultant, he has protected some of the richest ore deposits in the world from thieving locals, rebels, and the competition. Some say that South Africa hasn’t been quite as well-behaved since he left. Stephen has proven to be a fine squad leader, especially during night maneuvers.  

Additional Info: Earned the reputation of "best new mercenary" amongst A.I.M.'s clients."

  • A Strong professional approach to mercenary business, believes in a minimal body count, strictly for financial reasons.
  • Despises mercenaries who are unprofessional in their looks and behavior. 
  • His accent sounds more Swedish than anything else, while the most common languages in Switzerland are French and German. He also uses "smörgåsbord" as an expletive, which is a Swedish word, though not an obscene one in any way.
  • In the German version of the game he himself and other mercs constantly refer him as Stephan, while the text he is, like in the English version, referred as Stephen.
