Roger Parslow (1983–1995) was a kitchen boy at Jordan College and a friend to Lyra Silvertongue. After he was kidnapped by the Gobblers, Lyra rescued him from Bolvangar. Roger was later killed by the intercision process administered by Lord Asriel.
Life at Jordan College
Roger Parslow worked as a kitchen boy at Jordan College, where he befriended Lyra Silvertongue. The two children would play together, exploring the college from the rooftops to the crypts.
Some time later, he was rescued from the experimental station by Lyra Silvertongue. The children travelled to Svalbard to meet the girl's father, Lord Asriel. In the night, Asriel harnessed the energy released during the intercision of Roger and his dæmon Salcilia and used it to create a hole between Lyra's world and Cittàgazze. Roger was killed by the process.
Roger's ghost went to the Land of the Dead. After William Parry created a window between the Land of the Dead and the world of the Mulefa, Roger was the first ghost to enter it and become one with the cosmos.
