He was a demihuman that looked like a snake that had grown arms. The scales on Rokesh's body gleamed wetly, throwing off a bizarre riot of colors that did justice to its nickname of "Rainbow Scales".
Rokesh appears to be a serious and patient individual. Despite being designated as Jaldabaoth's contact, he displays no arrogance amongst his colleagues, and rather seeks moderation. He seems to take his duties seriously, only using his authority to enforce order when his colleagues personalities get in the way of the larger picture.
During the initial stages of the invasion of the Roble Holy Lingdom, Rokesh’s forces were the first to arrive at the city of Kalinsha and ready to be deployed.

Rokesh led the siege against the city of Loyts, occupied by the Holy Kingdom Liberation Army. For three days, he withheld the army of 40,000 from attacking city. On the third day, a meeting of the tribal leaders was hosted by Rokesh. After breaking up an argument between Vijar Rajandala and Nasrene Belt Cure, threatening to inform Jaldabaoth of their behavior, he called the meeting to order and outlined the objectives from the Demon Emperor. He explained the reason why the army held station outside the city as it was to spread fear into their opponents and weaken their resolve. Rokesh also stated that the army will attack into two days, thus during the meantime it would allow them to deal with the human captives they brought along. Halisha Ankara suggested they use the captives as a psychological tactic, killing them before the defenders and butcher them like animals to inspire greater terror. Finding it to be productive, Rokesh accepted the plan. Rokesh also relayed another order from Jaldabaoth, that they were to allow to some humans to escape. To fulfill his master's order Rokesh planned to kill everyone guarding the western gate and chase away the ones manning the eastern gate. He designated Jajan and Hectowaizes Ah Ragara to take the eastern gate, whilst Muar Praxua harassed them at the north and south gates. The remaining leaders: Nasrene, Vijar and Halisha would take the western gate. Rokesh being the commander of the army would stay away from the front-lines to coordinate.
