|“||Are you here to take us home?||”|
|— Rose to Clarke [src]|
Rose was born in Sanctum. Since she had Royal Blood, she was expected to go through the Naming Ceremony after she turned 21. Her body would then be taken over by Jasmine Prime, a female relative of Miranda Prime. As a host, Rose was viewed as very important to the community and had Jade as a personal bodyguard.
Throughout the Series
In Red Sun Rising, Rose leads the other kids to return back to the Palace after the red sun eclipse. When they find the group from Earth, Rose asks Clarke if they've come to take them home. In The Children of Gabriel, the adults return and tell Rose to stay away from Clarke's group. They say that Rose has to be protected because she's a "host." Rose is special because she has royal blood (Nightblood) and therefore considered to be a host for one of the Primes. This makes her targetted by Children of Gabriel, who sneak into the palace and kidnap Rose just before Delilah's naming ceremony. Clarke, Russell and Cassius try to get Rose back but with no luck. After kidnapping Rose, the Children of Gabriel are pleased that bringing in a child with royal blood will impress "the old man." In The Face Behind the Glass, she and Octavia Blake are held hostage by the Children of Gabriel. After Xavier leaves a knife close by Octavia, she uses it to cut herself and Rose free, and they run from the Children of Gabriel. Rose calls Octavia "Mommy" and says she's scared. Octavia tells her that "fear is a demon" and to say "I am not afraid" over and over until she believes it. Charmaine Diyoza and Jade arrive, and Diyoza kills several of the Children of Gabriel. However, Tosh survives and shoots Rose in the chest, killing her. In The Gospel of Josephine, her body was offered to the forest as part of Sanctum's traditions. In Memento Mori, Joaquin, the guard who let the Earth people into Sanctum the night their ship landed, sacrifices himself to the Offering Grove, blaming himself for Rose's death. Witnessing this, Jade tells Echo that he should blame her and she tells Joaquin she would've done the same except Jade has a new charge. This ultimately causes Echo to deduce that Clarke has become possessed by a Prime.

She had fair skin and blue eyes.
They seemed to have a close friendly relationship. Rose trusted Kaylee and wasn't afraid seen her in a cuffs.
Rose was going to become the future Jasmine Mason Vll, so Miranda was her protector, not letting her put herself in danger.
