President Samuel Rocksmith is considered to represent the populist faction within the Republic government. President Rocksmith is presumably best known for his leniency toward immigration from eastern Zemuria, which has made him a target for anti-immigration extremists.
President Rocksmith is described as a raccoon for both his looks and his personality. For protection at the West Zemuria Trade Conference, he had mafia syndicate Heiyue take care of the terrorists that assaulted the Orchis Tower. He also awarded the Special Support Section for how they dealt with the D∴G Cult during the Cult Incident in S.1204, re-confirming his position as the leader of Crossbell's suzerain state.
