It's not a reference to an specific thing, but the Rogue is a class of character often used in role playing games. They are most commonly marked by duel-wielded weapons, fast movement and high attack speed. While their attacks tend to do a small amount of damage, they come at a very rapid pace. The Rouge however usually does not need high damage since he fills the role of scout and thief.
Gotcha. I'm familiar with the class, as I've played through the .hack//G.U. series. (as well as a few others.) I was just wondering if you were going after something more specific. e.g. a specific character from a specific game.
