Rock is the son of crime lord Geese Howard. When Geese died at the end of Fatal Fury 3, Terry felt guilty and adopted Rock. Rock isn't proud of his ancestry at all and hates Geese with a passion. He fights using a mixture of Terry and Geese's signature styles. He has his inner struggles but is ultimately a good kid. Because he grew up mainly around men, Rock gets easily flustered when dealing with women.
