President Asher's Detail
Roma was present in Camp David in December 25th, 2011. As they are prepared to go to the campaign fundraiser, Roma droves the vehicle with the President's son Connor Asher, Agents Mike Banning and O'Neil on their vehicle. However, when The beast slid on the icy road and was on the brink of falling, Roma joined Mike and O'Neil to balance the vehicle and get Asher and Margaret out. Though Asher was saved, Margaret wasn't lucky and died when the limo fell into the icy lake below, leaving Roma and the other agents horrified at the tragedy.
With the White House becoming defenseless inside and outside, Roma joined the remaining Secret Service agents in a desperate attempt to hold off the attackers. Though he tried his best and killed a few terrorists, the remaining Secret Service agents were killed with only himself being left. He valiantly fought against the terrorists until he was outnumbered and mortally wounded. Moments before his death, he alerted Secret Service Director Lynne Jacobs that "Olympus had fallen" before attempting to throw off his attackers one last time before being shot to death.
As Mike had managed to sneak into the White House, he stumbled upon Roma's corpse and briefly mourned for his fallen friend before starting his mission to take out the terrorists and save President Asher.
Roma was avenged after Mike killed Kang and the remaining terrorists in the bunker. Later, after Mike saved President Asher and prevented a nuclear meltdown across America, Roma was posthumously honored by President Asher in his speech in the aftermath of the attack.
