Charleston, South Carolina[]

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No![]

As a sergeant she was stationed in Charleston, South Carolina at the Charleston Air Force Base, under General Gotleib. She was on guard duty at the gate when Fin, Nova, and Lucas arrive at the base to borrow a plane. She doesn't believe he is Fin at first. It took a call to General Gotleib before she would allow him in. She was still there when a Sharknado hit. It is unknown if this is canon, however. This makes Roberta the first character to be shown in the Sharknado film series followed by Doc who appeared in Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.

Roberta‘s flashback is shown where she is a National Guard Lieutenant. She is first seen talking to her boss on her phone whilst telling the rest of her unit to be quiet whilst they’re watching hockey. When the conversation ends, Dineen appears and asks if he can catch up with his unit the following night. Roberta denies this after learning that she was ordered to order vehicles from Philadelphia to Trenton. She soon hear a crashed ambulance and goes outside to investigate. She turns off the sirens and goes inside the back only to find a zombified patient. After it tries to bite her, Roberta tries to find her help, but to no avail. She comes back inside the building to find it abandoned with the phone lines cut. She goes into the break room to find a message saying to not panic. She hears a noise and thinks it’s one of her men. A zombified Dineen attacks Roberta but she quickly evaded him. She then grabs her sidearm and kills Dineen. Soon, more of Roberta’s zombified men quickly swoop in as well as two ambulance workers. She kills them all and realises what they are. Zombies.
