A fortune-teller from Italy.
Rose is an Italian fortune teller whose tarot cards predicted that Bison would bring about the end of the world if he was not stopped. She would engage him in battle and managed to defeat him. But, Rose would come to realize that Bison was still alive from having possessed another body thus driving her to confront him again.
Despite utilizing all of her Soul Power to attempt defeating him, Bison had become increasingly stronger since their last battle and Rose was unable to beat him. She would come to learn in the encounter that she was a part of Bison's soul that he discarded in order to increase his strength. Exhausted from the fight, Rose would pass out and would later be found by Guy a short time afterward. Bison would temporarily possess her body when his physical form was slain by Ryu in battle.
With Bison still alive and possessing another body, Rose continues her efforts in trying to slay the Shadaloo dictator.
Rose was a character created for Capcom's popular Street Fighter video game franchise, first appearing in Street Fighter Alpha in 1995. She has appeared in the Street Fighter Alpha OVA series, being voiced by Ai Orikasa in Japanese and Carolyn Hennesy in English.
Rose stands at '5'10" (178 cm) and weighs in at 119 pounds (54 kg). She has long purple hair and black eyes. She is normally dressed in a red short-skirted dress with a long yellow scarf, purple leggings and red slippers.
Rose is an independent and intelligent woman who dabbles heavily into talk on destiny and fate. Her wise and calm demeanor makes her hard to anger and she is committed to going down whatever path she feels fate guides her to protect the greater good, even if it comes at the cost of her life.
In her only anime appearance within Street Fighter Alpha, Rose mostly appears as an advisor to Ryu in warning him not to give into Satsui no Hado and guiding him on a path that could make him stronger without driving him to madness.
As a psychic, Rose is capable of predicting the future through the use of her tarot cards and makes use of a type of psychic energy called Soul Power in order to attack her foes. With Soul Power, Rose is able to teleport, make illusions of herself, reflect and absorb projectile attacks, and utilize her scarf to channel her Soul Power into varying attacks such as a projectile called Soul Spark and a drill-like rush attack called the Soul Spiral.
