(Nightstalkers#3 (fb) - BTS) - Keith Roberts taped a speech of Major Patton at Newbury College.

(Nightstalkers#3) - Keith called the Nightstalkers to Newbury College to show them a tape of Major Patton's speech to the students. They weren't interested at first, but Keith told them to wait and forwarded the tape a little bit. When the Nightstalkers heard Patton talk about creating vampire soldiers the Nightstalkers were interested in the case. Keith was sure that Patton was serious about the vampire soldiers.

(Nightstalkers#6) - He accompanied the Nightstalkers with his camera to the con Svengali. He joked around and King told him not to encourage Blade's anger and then sent Keith to check on Adam Casim at the hospital's burn unit.

(Nightstalkers#6 - BTS) - Keith taped the testimony of Charlie, the only survivor of an attack by supernaturally changed Adam Casim. Afterwards he gave the tape to the Nightstalkers.

(Nightstalkers#8) - Keith joined Blade and Drake in examining Stonecold's wheel. Blade got angry when Drake suggested setting the wheel in motion and Keith tried to calm Blade down when he saw the fear in Drake's eyes. After Blade left, Keith told Drake jokingly that he would toss away the rabbit's foot he had since he was five after he had seen the things the Nightstalkers were into.

Why do I think Keith was a student? Blade's fault! He made a comment about not wanting to see Keith waste his parents' money on watching Warner Brothers cartoons in Nightstalkers#3.

I'm not sure, but Keith seemed to be an intern at Borderline Investigative Services. He probably stopped working for them because of Blade's choleric behaviour.
