While helping refugees of the Plague in Heaven's Peak, Castle Spree came under attack by bandits, led by someone who seemed to be Kahn and Jewel,. She was saved by the Third Overlord, who drove the bandits from the castle, and afterwards, she joined him to be his mistress.

When the Third Overlord went to Heaven's Peak to investigate the plague, Rose discovered that the woman to be married to Sir William the Black was her sister, Velvet. Initially she attempted to hide this detail, but eventually came clean when the Overlord stopped the plague by killing the source, the Succubus Queen. She holds much disdain for her younger sibling, looking down on her as a spoilt, materialistic brat too used to getting what she wants. After defeating Sir William, the Overlord finds Velvet and is possibly tempted to take her as mistress,although the choice is up to the player.

After the Overlord has defeated six of the heroes, the Wizard appears at the Dark Tower and reveals himself as the Second Overlord. She or Velvet come to the Wizard's Aid. As the Second Overlord drains the third of his spells,Rose\Velvet damages the Tower Heart, giving the current Overlord the fighting chance he needed to defeat his predecessor.

Months later, after the Abyss crisis in Overlord: Raising Hell, if the Overlord chose Rose, she will be revealed to be pregnant with the Third Overlord's child.


after the events of Overlord raising hell and the Dark Tower confrontation,  she searched the land for Florian,and bringed him in the Dark Tower and made him use the Tower Heart,and the Great Cataclysm occurred, destroying and warping the surrounding lands of the Dark Tower, spreading a magical plague and general disorder. she bringed the Overlad and leaved him out of the gates of the remote village of Nordberg, far from the minions,ensuring the fall of the Overlord's empire. After leaving the Overlad to Nordberg, and then she Helped Florian rise to found his Glorious Empire and take the identity of Solarius, Rose pretended to have hope that Florian would bring order to the world in the absence of the Third Overlord, who still remains trapped within the Infernal Abyss. She later married Marius, Solarius' right-hand man and spokesperson

Overlord II

after several years,the Overlad was found by the minions and taken to the Netherworld,until his age was high enough to take the throne of Overlord,and the Glorious Empire grew and prospered,helped by Rose. after the Overlord had conquered Nordberg and Everlight ,she visited the Fourth Overlord. Rose warned him of the dangers of treading the path of an Overlord, but she told him to defeat the Glorious Empire and that the answers was in the 'old lands ',now a mess of wastelands . In the final battle at the Empire City, Rose changed sides with the Overlord and  told him to destroy Solarius and the Great Devourer. In the end, she is seen, flanked by two sentinels. The outfit she wears in this game is very similar, if not exactly identical, to that of a Sentinel.

Difference between

Personality and Traits

Rose does not like things to be disorganized and is more proper woman compared to her spoiled sister Velvet,though this hides an arrogant and childish attitude,believing that she's the 'intelligent' choice beetween her and her sister and to be better,it is shown to be easily manipulated,because if the player dumps her for Velvet,she will believe that the possessed Wizard is still her father. As of Overlord II she develops a belief in Order over good & evil and a cycle of balance, where when one gets too strong another must rise to defeat it, with Solarius being the 'good' (although the story proves otherwise,Florian being the one to exterminate every magic creature in order to be worshipped as a deity and the Overlord being the guy who stops him) to be defeated while the Overlad must be the 'Evil' to restore the balance, eventually to be slain


Although Rose is supposed to be the 'True' mistress of the Third Overlord,there are many things that may hint otherwise,the fact that speaks about the Overlad destroying everything,the women,the minions will lead him to share the fate of his father,that means that the third overlord was truly evil(not possible with the elves alive and evernight forest recovering,and Rose didn't want 'chaos'),and the Demon Statues in the Wasteland,only available if the player choosed Velvet,same with the Greater Fang Top Upgrade,Gnarl could have confused the true mother since Rose remained in the Dark Tower for a while(Gnarl forgot many things),and Rose,despising her sister,and in revenge of the Overlord killing her 'father' and dumping her,she is suspected to have kidnapped the child from Velvet and the Minions,and later helped Florian getting into the Dark Tower,causing much chaos by make him destroy the Tower Heart and causing in this way the great cataclysm. and the magic plague,that she doesn't seem to care about the disorder caused by it,that would explain why she abandoned the Overlad out of Nordberg and fled instead of taking care of 'her' Overlad ,making a non sensical deal with an elf to get him into the Dark Tower,make him use the Tower Heart and then helping him building a magic purging regime for 20 years without doing nothing and even being okay with it,instead of educating the Overlad herself to keep the World under control and make him the overlord.



  • "Your little creatures are just darlings aren't they. I'm Rose." — First encounter with Rose at Castle Spree.
  • "I thought you were just the usual run-of-the-mill dungeon fodder, but you've surprised me! I think someone like you could use someone like me. Let's go!" — Rose takes charge right from the start.
  • "I'd better get up there, wouldn't want those little dears eating my things and getting a tummy ache." — Private Quarters have been set up at the Dark Tower, and Rose's luggage has been brought up.
  • "Those little Cherubs of yours, they're precious aren't they?" — Small talk in the Private Quarters.
  • "And I thought you had a brain somewhere beneath that armor!" — Rose is undignified about getting dumped for Velvet.
  • 'I'm going to help my father bringing order to the world'  if Rose was dumped,she will say this when you approach her in the Spawning Pit during the Second Overlord's return to the Dark Tower

Overlord II:

  • "I hope you don't expect me in clean this up. Men... can't destroy without getting everything all messy!" — Rose's reaction to the Overlad destroying the Devourer. She still hates disorder.
