Character background:
Long ago, Rose was one of the original seven Dragoons who fought in a war known as the Dragon Campaign. The war was between the humans, with other races as allies, and a race known as the Winglies. The Winglies, led by Malbu Frahma, believed that because they possessed the most magic that they had the right to rule over and enslave all other races. The Dragoons, under the leadership of the human Emperor Diaz, were formed to fight against Frahma and his followers. The Dragoons was a small group that consisted of mostly humans, who had slain powerful dragons in order to take their crystallized souls, called Dragoon Spirits. The Dragoon Spirits allowed them to use elemental magic and command dragons that drew power from those elements, thus gave them a better chance in a fight against the Winglies.
Nothing is known about Rose before she became a Dragoon. It is safe to assume that she was a warrior, perhaps a knight, in Emperor Diaz’s army. Her strong will and skills as a fighter allowed her to be chosen to become a Dragoon, and thus was sent out to slay a dragon. With her fiancé Zieg, who was already a Dragoon, by her side, she was tasked to slay the Darkness Dragon. Once slain, she received the dragon’s spirit and a baby dragon was born from its corpse. She named the new born dragon Michael and raised him to be a beast of war and to fight alongside her in battle against the Winglies.
During the final battle of the war, Rose had witnessed her fellow Dragoons fall in battle. She even saw Zieg turned to stone before her eyes when he had defeated Malbu Frahma in single combat. This left her to be the only Dragoon who saw the end of the war.
When he had fought Malbu Frahma, Zieg had smashed crystal that Frahma drew his power from. That crystal contained the soul of a being called the Virage Embryo, which was the God of Destruction. When the world was still young, the Winglies had separated the Virage’s soul from its body. The soul was sealed away so they could draw power from it, and the body was cast into the sky to create a moon that never set. When Zieg smashed the crystal the soul was released and thus started a long ongoing cycle.
Rose found out what was in the crystal, and was told that the soul would be reborn as a human and then would try to find its way back to its original body, and thus mark the end of the world. Since she was the only Dragoon to survive the war, and knew her actions had started the possible end of the world, Rose decided she had to do something about it. With the help of Charle Frahma, the elder sister of Malbu who sided with the humans, Rose was made immortal. Every 108 years, when the Moon that Never Sets turned red, she had to find the baby who was born with the soul of the God of Destruction and kill it along with anyone who was nearby.
Because of all the death and destruction she had to caused in order to save her world, history began to refer to her as the Black Monster. Over time, the baby that would be born was referred to as the Moon Child, which people believed would bring salvation to the world. This only made her task seem more villainous, even though what she was doing was for the greater good.
She had done this for thousands of years, and she had grown into the habit of not staying in one place for very long, since she didn’t age. In order to keep sane she killed her own emotions and didn’t allow herself to get too attached to anyone other than her dragon Michael, who survived the war with her. For 10,000 years, the dragon stayed by her side until he fell into battle madness, which he couldn’t even recognized Rose. It was at this time she was forced to slay him, which left Charle Frahma to be the only person who knew about her life before she took on the task of being the Black Monster.
About 18 years after she slain the Moonchild for the 108th time, Rose met a young man by the name of Dart, a survivor of Neet which was the village she had to destroy when she last killed the Moon Child. She saved him from a green dragon that had chased him. When he had left to return to his village, her Dragoon Spirit started to glow, which was something it was only supposed to do in the presence of another Dragoon. Because of this, she started to follow him. When she finally caught up to him, it was revealed that he also possessed a Dragoon Spirit, the one that once belonged to Zieg.
She showed Dart how to use the Dragoon Spirit and accompanied him on his journey to find out why Emperor Doel, and later a Wingly named Lloyd, was interested in Dart’s friend, Shana. During the long journey, other Dragoon Spirits were discovered. Rose at first claimed she tagged along because her companions reminded her of her former comrades during the Dragon Campaign, but later she slowly started to open herself up to her emotions.
Later, it was revealed that her former lover, Zieg, was alive and was Dart’s father. Not only that, but he also was the one who commanded Lloyd to take Shana so that the God of Destruction could be revived. This, of course devastated Rose, and her history was revealed to the rest of her companions, including the part about her being the Black Monster.
Rather than going to kill Shana to prevent the God of Destruction from coming back, she joined Dart and their companions to find an alternate way to prevent it. The Moon That Never Sets was eventually brought down to the planet, and onto the Divine Tree, which was the source of all forms of life in the world.
Rose and the others ventured into the Moon in order to confront Zieg and to save Shana. It was then revealed that Zieg was possessed by Malbu Frahma, who only wanted to use Shana to bring down the Moon so that he could become the God of Destruction, rather than the Moon Child. At the end of the battle with Malbu, Rose with the non-possessed Zieg sacrificed themselves to destroy Malbu and the Moon That Never Sets from the inside, and bought time for the other Dragoons and Shana to escape.
Character Appearance:
Official concept art for her canon.
Would you prefer for your character to live alone or be assigned a roommate? Yes! Rose may not like it, but it makes for great fun for me. X3
If your character has magic/power/superhuman abilities, will they keep them on arrival to the game? Since all her power and abilities come from the Dragoon Spirit, which is an item she has to carry around, Rose will not be coming into the game with any abilities other than her swordsmanship skills.
Character Traits:

Loyal: For someone who is used to being alone for most of her life, she is loyal to her few comrades and friends. She will do anything to protect them and will stand by their side on the battlefield

Strong Willed: The one trait that all Dragoons need to have is a strong will since the armor can increase one's battle rage so much that they become a berserker. Rose has demonstrated her strong will by always appearing calm in battle and calculating, even while wearing the armor, thus allowing her to have full command of her Dragoon abilities. She has even summoned her armor outside of battle, where as the other Dragoons need to be in actual battle to summon theirs.

Introverted: Rose is quite withdrawn from the rest of society due to her duty as the Black Monster. She only started to interact with the other characters in the game because they were Dragoons like herself, and they reminded her of the original Dragoons. After thousands of years of living like this, it has become so ingrained into her actual personality that it is hard for her to interact with people on a personal level, even after it was revealed to the other Dragoons that she was the Black Monster.

Logical: Rose is well known for her sense of cold logic. She will put all her emotions to the side and look at the bigger picture and see what will bring the best outcome. She is even willing to become a monster and sacrifice hundreds to thousands of innocent lives in order to make sure that the rest of her world lives.

Prideful: Rose is quite prideful, especially when it comes to her skills with a sword. She even refused to participate in a fighting competition, stating that it would be unfair to the other competitors, implying that she is just that good. Also, when it's revealed that Shana was the Moon Child, thus revealing that she failed 18 years ago, she wanted to go out on her own, figuring that it was her mess and thus she was the one who had to clean it up without any help.
