Troy is the second in command of the 3rd Street Saints leader Julius, and along with Julius rescue Playa from a gang turf war between the three rival gangs in the Row. Troy is in fact an undercover cop 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 is in several cutscenes and isn't happy with his boss Dane Vogel supporting gangs in the city, although he does try to cover up the 3rd Street Saints' criminal activities. Wiretaps inside 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 Playa 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 Playa in a coma and also leading to the death of Richard Hughes. This leads to Playa getting revenge on Julius.
Troy is the sarcastic joker[reference?] of the Saints and always has snide remarks. When he later becomes chief of police, he does not lose his sense of humor.[reference?] Troy is a chain-smoker.
Troy along with Julius rescue Playa, 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 Playa a chance to join the Saints and meet at the Saints Row Church. When Playa arrives at the church, Troy agrees with gang member Johnny Gat that Playa should be canonized, and after Playa is finished battling 3rd Street Saints members he is allowed in. Troy and Playa 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 Playa to Forgive and Forget, before getting him to drop him off at Freckle Bitch's. Troy along with Playa and Julius head to Harrowgate to wipe out remaining gang lieutenants, and finally reclaim the Saint's Row district. 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.
Troy still helps out during the takeover of Stilwater. During the wipe out of the Westside Rollerz Troy goes along with Playa in a race against them, taunting the Rollerz racers to put on their nitrous and set off bombs that are rigged in their cars. He also warns Julius when their leader Joseph Price is leading Westside Rollerz to the Row to destroy the Saints.
During the takedown of Los Carnales, Troy goes to look for their main drug plant for Dex and later along with Playa go to hijack the truck and bring it back to the Row. 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 Playa go to get it, and also causes confusion to Dex for his constant questioning. 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. When Victor Rodriguez attacks the church, Troy, Julius, Dex and Playa protect it and Victor is killed by Playa. 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.
During the takedown of the Vice Kings, Troy sends 3rd Street Saints' members after Tanya Winters, unaware that Playa 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.
After the Saints manage to rule over Stilwater, Troy gets drunk in Tee'N'Ay. Later on, prior to Playa and Richard Hughes getting caught in an explosion on Hughes' yacht, Troy looks at his police badge, revealing himself as being a cop.
Saints Row 2
Prior to Playa 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. Troy goes to visit Julius in prison and convinces him to ask Playa 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 but Julius instead rigs the yacht and blows it up, putting Playa into a coma and killing Richard Hughes. When Troy questions him angrily about the decision, Julius assures him the Saints are now finished..
During the time Playa was in a coma, Troy ordered to keep him on life support. Johnny Gat attempted to kill Troy in revenge for betraying the Saints but ended up being arrested and put in prison. Troy was then promoted to the chief of police and had Johnny protected inside prison
Playa woke up from the coma five years after the boat explosion and saved Johnny during his trial and resurrected the 3rd Street Saints to take back Stilwater from the new gangs that had taken over in the Saints' absence.
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. When questioned by Jane Valderamma about the Brotherhood members being released, Troy refuses to give comment and tells her to talk to Dane on the matter. However, Playa destroys the prison trucks containing the newly released Brotherhood members.
Playa 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.
Saints Row Undercover
After the events of Saints Row 2 Troy notices that Stilwater is being torn apart by the 3rd Street Saints. Troy soon finds out that the Saints are in a civil war fighting each other. So with no other choice Troy sends a undercover cop to infiltrate the Saints to find out what caused the civil war and the solution to stop it.
Saints Row: The Third
In between Saints Row 2 and Saints Row: The Third Troy had continued to help the 3rd Street Saints by covering up their crimes.Despite this, he isn't able to interfere when the Saints are attacked by Morningstar and SWAT teams while attempting to rob the Stilwater 1st National Bank, which leads them to being in Steelport.
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell
By the events of Saints Row: Gat out of Hell Troy is deceased. Troy is residing in Hell as a husk by the time of Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington's arrival in Hell. He is in the deepest part of Hell, reserved for betrayers, in part of having a torn allegiance between the Saints and the Stilwater Police Department
- In Saints Row, his surname is never mentioned in-game, but the Saints Row promotional website uses the name "Troy Bradshaw". In Saints Row 2, his surname is used in-game.
- The very first clue that Troy is an undercover cop is the Saints Row manual, which is 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 sometimes brags about the kill after it is done. In Saints Row 2, although he is Chief of Police, he still kills 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 similar to 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 is another undercover cop and Jake Hoyt from Training Day.
- In Saints Row, he almost always has a cigarette, and once lights it off the burning body of Victor Rodriguez in the church. He does not smoke as often in Saints Row 2.
- 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 Playa poses as her driver.
- Troy is 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 2
- Troy's badge in Saints Row 2 says "Johnson" instead of "Bradshaw".
- 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 is displayed on computer screens in Saints Row: The Third.
- Playa and Troy both 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 Playa 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 Playa was in a coma. Playa 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.
- Despite his job as a police officer, Troy is still loyal to the Third Street Saints. He kept Playa alive even though they are confirmed mass murderers, and gave Johnny Gat special protection during his time in prison.
- After clearing level 6 of the Prison Fight Club in Saints Row 2, Troy is unlocked as a homie. When called, he shoots 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".
- There is a model in a cabinet in the corner of Troy's office at the Police Headquarters, 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 , Troy looks quite different from how he looked in Saints Row.
- Troy is quite corrupt. He spent a lot of money on keeping a mass murderer alive, he attacks and kills other police officers as a homie and is actively covering up the illegal activities the Saints are involved with. In Saints Row: The Third, it is revealed that Troy keeps the Saints out of prison.
- In Saints Row 2, he wears a cop medium-blue tie, whilst other cops wear a cop dark-blue tie.
Saints Row: The Third
- By Saints Row: The Third and beyond, Troy is one of the few earliest members of the Saints to still be alive.
- During the heist at Stilwater 1st National Bank, members of SWAT say "Troy can't bail you out of this one!". Troy is never mentioned after that.
Saints Row IV
- There is a picture of Troy in the Church during Benjamin King's simulation alongside Julius, Dex, Lin, Johnny Gat and Alderman Hughes. There are images of Troy on monitors in the Virtual Steelport such as Kinzie's Warehouse, which shows him and Julius helping Playa during The Streets of Stilwater and a close up of Troy from the mission Canonized.
- Troy is indirectly mentioned by Johnny Gat in a conversation between him and a virtual Julius Little in which Johnny listed Julius' faults, one of them letting an undercover cop into the Saints.
- Troy and Dex are the only main characters in Saints Row whose fates are not disclosed by the events of Saints Row IV.
- Hey man, now that everything's taken care of can you drop me off at Freckle Bitch's? I'm jonesin' for a fun bag.
- Troy: "I got a lead on where the Los Carnales cut all their shit."
Dex: "The Carnales."
Dex: "Rio Grande River. Jesus."
Troy: "What the fuck?"
Dex: "It's not THE Los Carnales, it's just the Carnales. Los means... fuck it. Like I was sayin', we're not gonna raid the factory quite yet."
- Troy: "Dex's bringing the truck around. You know why he wanted that thing?"
Dex: "Shit Troy..."
Dex: "If you wanted to know all you had to do was ask."
Troy: "I did."
Dex: "Well, I guess you did, ain't that a bitch."
- — Troy fails at finding out Dex's plan.
Saints Row 2
- Yeah, Gat needs to learn how to take a joke.
