SR1 promo Troy

Promotional artwork of Troy for Saints Row.

Troy appears as the second in command of the 3rd Street Saints leader Julius, and along with Julius rescue The Protagonist from a gang turf war between the three rival gangs in the Row[1]. Troy is in fact an undercover cop[2] working for Chief Monroe, and the game's manual is written from Troy's perspective.

During the events of Saints Row 2 he is the chief of police for the Stilwater Police Department. He appears a few times in cutscenes and isn't happy with his boss Dane Vogel supporting gangs in the city[3][4], although he does try to cover up the Third Street Saints' criminal activities[5]. In wiretaps found at the Stilwater Police Department reveal that Troy was told by Dex about the fact he knew he was undercover and was leaving the Saints to work for Ultor and that Troy tried to convince Julius to convince The Protagonist and Johnny Gat to walk as he didn't want to arrest his friends, but wasn't happy with the fact that Julius chose to blow up the yacht putting The Protagonist in a coma and also leading to the death of Richard Hughes[6]. This leads to The Protagonist getting revenge on Julius[7].

Troy can also be unlocked as a Homie in Saints Row 2 after completing the Fight Club activity at the Stilwater Penitentiary.

Troy is mentioned[8], but does not appear in Saints Row: The Third and he is also absent in Saints Row IV.

Saints RowEdit

Troy along with Julius rescue The Protagonist, who is caught up a in a gang turf war between the Vice Kings, Los Carnales and the Westside Rollerz while walking through Saint's Row and although Troy tries to urge Julius that they should get moving, Julius offers The Protagonist a chance to join the Saints and meet at the Saints Row Church[1]. When The Protagonist arrives at the church, Troy agrees with gang member Johnny Gat that The Protagonist should be canonized, and after The Protagonist is finished battling 3rd Street Saints members he is allowed in[9]. Troy and The Protagonist then go around the Row to clear out the gangs and takes him to a shop for a gun and they wipe out some Vice Kings members, and Troy then introduces The Protagonist to Forgive and Forget, before getting him to drop him off at Freckle Bitch's[10]. Troy along with The Protagonist and Julius head to Harrowgate to wipe out remaining gang lieutenants, and finally reclaim the Saint's Row district[11]. Back at the church when Julius reveals his plans to wipe out the gangs from Stilwater he appoints Troy to look into the Vice Kings but he refuses to Julius' annoyance, until Johnny volunteers to look into them and under the watch of Dex[12].

Troy still helps out during the takeover of Stilwater. During the wipe out of the Westside Rollerz Troy goes along with The Protagonist in a race against them, taunting the Rollerz racers to put on their nitrous and set off bombs that are rigged in their cars [13]. He also warns Julius when their leader Joseph Price was leading Westside Rollerz to the Row to destroy the Saints [14].

During the takedown of Los Carnales, Troy goes to look for their main drug plant for Dex [15] and later along with The Protagonist go to hijack the truck and bring it back to the Row [16]. Before doing the job Troy tries to ask Dex why he wants the truck, although Dex refuses to reveal the rest of the plan until Troy and The Protagonist go to get it, and also causes confusion to Dex for his constant questioning [17]. After the death of the Los Carnales leader Hector Lopez Troy suggests to Dex that they should kill the Colombian Cartel member Manuel Orejuela although Dex instead opted to talk to him [18]. When Victor Rodriguez attacks the church, Troy, Julius, Dex and The Protagonist protect it and Victor is killed by The Protagonist [19]. When Dex reveals a plan to attack the police department to get hold of the Carnales' seized drugs in order to work with the columbians, Troy instead suggests to blow a hole in the wall to reduce police casualties, which Dex agrees to [20].

During the takedown of the Vice Kings, Troy sends 3rd Street Saints' members after Tanya Winters, unaware that The Protagonist is driving her around, posing as a chauffeur in order to save Johnny, although he ends up losing them and saves her thanks to Julius warning him[21].

After the Saints manage to rule over Stilwater, Troy is seen getting drunk in Tee'N'Ay[22]. Later on, prior to The Protagonist and Richard Hughes getting caught in an explosion on Hughes' yacht, Troy is seen looking at his police badge, revealing himself to being a cop [2].

Saints Row 2Edit

Prior to The Protagonist being put in a coma, Dex told Troy he knew he was a cop and that he was dropping his flags to go and work for Ultor [23]. Troy goes to visit Julius in prison and convinces him to ask The Protagonist and Johnny Gat to drop their flags as he doesn't want to arrest his friends and Julius tells Troy he will see what he can do [24] but Julius instead rigs the yacht and blows it up, putting The Protagonist into a coma and killing Richard Hughes [2]. When Troy questions him angrily about the decision, Julius assures him the Saints are now finished [25].

During the time The Protagonist was in a coma, Troy ordered to keep him on life support [26]. Johnny Gat attempted to kill Troy in revenge for betraying the Saints but ended up being arrested and put in prison [27]. Troy was then promoted to the chief of police and had Johnny protected inside prison [28].

The Protagonist woke up from the coma a few years after the boat explosion [29] and saved Johnny during his trial [30] and resurrected the 3rd Street Saints to take back Stilwater from the new gangs that had taken over in the Saints' absence[31].

Troy receives a phone call from Dane Vogel and is ordered to release imprisoned Brotherhood members, and although he is unwilling Dane forces him to do it, which angers Troy [32]. When questioned by Jane Valderamma about the Brotherhood memebers being released, Troy refuses to give comment and tells her to talk to Dane on the matter [4]. However, The Protagonist destroys the prison trucks containing the newly released Brotherhood members [33].

When The Protagonist and Johnny Gat rob the Poseidon's Palace owned by the gang The Ronin [34], Troy is questioned by Jane on it but he refuses to mention anything about the Third Street Saints' involvement [5].

The Protagonist later raided the police station and discovered the wiretaps and Julius' betrayal, and also raided Troy's office and got hold of Dex's phone number, and later went on to take their revenge on Julius.[7]


Troy was the sarcastic joker of the Saints and always had snide remarks to say. When he later became chief of police, he still had not lost his sense of humor. Troy is also a chain-smoker and is always seen with a cigarette.


Saints RowEdit

  • The very first clue that Troy was an undercover cop was the Saints Row manual, which was written from the perspective of an undercover cop in a gang. Also, Troy always refers to The Carnales as The Los Carnales, in the manual they are called The Carnales, with the Los scribbled out. Also the Game Manuals article is labeled the Trojan Horse, Troy's name is the same as the city the Horse entered in the myth. This is also a reference to Troy sneaking into the Saints much like the Greeks sneaking into Troy inside the "Trojan Horse".
  • Though Troy is an undercover cop in Saints Row, when he is a homie in a mission he does not hesitate to kill police officers, and will sometimes go as far as brag about the kill after it is done. In Saints Row 2, although he is Chief of Police, he will still kill other members of the force.
  • In several missions, there are hints indicating Troy is an undercover cop. Troy says in a Westside Rollerz mission in reference to Lin, "You roll with someone long enough, and soon you start thinking like 'em." There is also a hint during a plan in the second Carnales mission. While pointing on a map, Troy asks, "What if we came from here and here?" Dex responds, "No, cops try that shit all the time and it never works." He also knows a lot about the abandoned police station. Also when getting the drugs back to The Carnales, Dex has a plan which involves taking out the police station, Troy refuses and suggests blowing a hole into the evidence room instead, lowering the cop body count which is what he wanted.
  • In Saints Row, Troy's appearance may pay homage to many characters: his appearance is possibly based on Paul Walker's character Brian O'Conner in The Fast and the Furious, from being an undercover cop down to hairstyle and facial hair; he is also similar to Leonardo DiCaprio's character William "Billy" Costigan Jr. in The Departed for his look and the fact he is undercover in a gang; Troy also bears a passing resemblance to actor Tim Roth, who is best known for playing Mr. Orange in Reservoir Dogs, who was yet another undercover cop.
  • In Saints Row, he is almost always seen with his trademark cigarette, even going so far as to light it off the burning body of a rival gang member in the church. In Saints Row 2 however, he seems to have somewhat cut down.
  • Another clue that shows Troy as an undercover cop, in Saints Row, is that he asks too many questions, members of the Saints also remark that he does. Dex also notices that in some cutscenes. This is a reference to real life cops asking too many questions.
  • Despite Troy staying out of the war against the Vice Kings, one of his groups attempts to kill Tanya Winters while The Protagonist poses as her driver.
  • Troy was the first member of law enforcement to be a member of the Saints. Others include Kinzie Kensington (ex-FBI agent), SWAT Team homies, and cop followers.

Saints Row 2Edit

Troy bradshaw cop or criminal

Two men debate about Troy still being a criminal.

  • In The Anna Show cutscene, there is a clip of two men debating over Troy being a crook. This report is titled "Gangster Chief of Police". One of the men state Troy is a hero for putting the Saints behind bars and was only undercover, but the other man states that he was in the Saints a long time, and that three gangs had already taken their place. This report can be seen on computer screens in Saints Row: The Third.
  • The Protagonist and Troy both seem to have a great deal of respect for one another even though Troy was an undercover cop, and later the chief of police. Upon listening to the wiretaps in his office in Saints Row 2, it is revealed that Troy did not want to arrest The Protagonist and simply wished that he would stand down. Also, in the beginning of the game, as mentioned above, Troy refused to stop the life support machine while The Protagonist was in a coma. The Protagonist occasionally says "I should drop by Troy's office some time, say hi" in a casual voice when idle. (This is a hint about the bonus mission, Revelation.)
  • It's implied that Troy is trying to prevent the Saints from getting busted: he attempts to cover up the fact that the Saints were involved in the casino robbery at all.
  • After clearing level 6 of the Prison Fight Club in Saints Row 2, Troy is unlocked as a homie. When called, he will shoot police officers just like all the other homies.
  • Unlike other homies, he never Sprints but just jogs like other police officers in the game.
  • When Idle in Saints Row 2 with Troy as a homie, Troy may say "Just because you helped clean up the gangs, that doesn't mean we're best friends again." However, after fighting he might also say "once a Saint, always a Saint".
  • Upon closer inspection of Troy's badge in Saints Row 2, it says "Johnson" instead of "Bradshaw". The most likely explanation for this is that because he did not have a last name in Saints Row, the developers had not yet decided his last name would be "Bradshaw" when that image was made, and when they decided on the name "Bradshaw", they forgot to change the image.
  • If the player takes a tour round Troy's office at the Police Headquarters, one can find a model in a cabinet in the corner of the room, depicting a police officer brutally murdering a thief and offering the stolen piece of jewelry back to the victim, who stares at the body in horror.
  • In Saints Row 2, he wears a cop medium-blue tie, whilst other cops wear a cop dark-blue tie.

Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

  • By Saints Row: The Third and beyond, Troy is one of the few earliest members of the Saints to still be alive.
  • While under siege at the Stilwater 1st National Bank, members of SWAT say "Troy can't bail you out of this one!".[8] This appears to confirm that he helped out the Saints between Saints Row 2 and Saints Row: The Third and that The Protagonist spared his life. Troy is never referenced to for the rest of the game.
